For those of you who haven't read my sorry tale, I switched from m.dot to responsive in June, and lost all my mobile traffic during the switch. The designer then set up a redirect from m.dot to my homepage (regardless of what page they searched for). Eventually the m.dot pages were removed from the index and the correct responsive pages showed for mobile. But, my Adsense dropped from day one and has not increased despite all the errors being fixed.
I emailed them, and they are very cagey about it all. They say it's a huge drop in 'valid' mobile traffic. According to Analytics, all is normal, but Adsense emphasise VALID.
I'm not the most techy of people, but know there's a bug in the system somewhere. I've now been looking at webmaster tools and see a few strange things.
1) When I click on Mobile Usability I see 'clickable elements too close together', 2,673 pages results (I only have 800 pages on my site, but do have forums too). I am seeing two recurring themes. example.com/blue-widgets/html?=s or example.com/blue-widgets/html?s=&no_redirect=true
2) 132 results for 'content wider than screen', again the results are html?=s or html?s=&no_redirect=true
3) I go to HTML improvements and see 173 duplicate title tags. For every one I see the same...
Could this be the cause of Google invalidating 2/3rds of my mobile traffic, and what does it mean?
