Why earnings rates everywhere so grim?

    I'd have thought with Memorial Weekend coming up, the advertisers would be advertising their little hearts out on all the holiday sales extravaganzas; thus higher CPM's, RPM's, and all that.

    No one is going to be happy unless we receive substantially more positive news. All these updates are so taxing for all the greatest writers on here and it's unfortunate. Perhaps if they screen out more writers that produce subpar content then we'll look better in Google's eyes.

      I'm pretty much blaming the low earnings rate on economics. For some reason the advertisers just don't seem as enthusiastic these days.

    It's true, advertisers have a lot of different avenues to use. I have been concerned that this revenue stream will dry up; it is not unheard of for things to be hot and then later disappear.

      When today's numbers floated in, I hotfooted it back over to straight AdSense. Unfortunately there's no magic going on over there either.

    Advertising is driven by aggregate demand.  In the current economy, we'll be seeing less and less of that, especially as you get away from the basics.

      This is a little cryptic to me - to which basics are you referring?

        I don't know about where you live right now, but where I live it's clear the economy is on the downswing, and people don't seem to be spending on extras so much and just stick to the basics.  That's aggregate demand.

    I'm not worrying too much yet. Summertime is always bleak online. My earnings have been down since last September anyways.
