I've been putting most of my energy into HubPages and have been neglecting my main website.
Adsense income there has jumped $5-$10 per day.
No, it's not referrals traffic from HP. Yes, there is some of that, but it isn't the cause.
I've gone on hiatus before and had the same thing happen.
Maybe it is regular visitors scouting around after not finding anything new? Maybe it is just coincidental and Adsense would have jumped this month anyway?
I'm poring through Analtyics and logs trying to get a hint.. Just curious if anyone else has noticed anything similar?
One of my highest earning months a few years ago was when I went on the road for the entire month, and had no Internet access at all. No editing, no updates, no new content, no approving comments, nada...
I often think people tweak so much stuff without ever letting anything they are doing actually have a chance to work. The data I gathered from a month of Hubs just doing their thing without any interference from me was invaluable.
I don't think I tweak much - well, unless I find errors or need to add important information - but I normally post new articles there at least 3 times a week, if that's the same as tweaking.
I've seen something similar. I do think sometimes we interfere with the "natural workings" of things.
I usually write stuff and then move on. The only thing I do extra is backlinking. Maybe once every year or so, I look back at older stuff and then I might change something - but not often.
It seems that it does truly take awhile for content to reach maturity and it full monetization value. So maybe it's just coincidental that you're elsewhere when it happens. But of course if revenue falls after you return- mayb you are a jinx.
But who really knows how things go on the internet?
Well, my site started in 1997, so I think it is mature :-)
I think this is the third or fourth time that I have just stopped adding new material. I think I have seen jumps each time.
It's easy enough for me to check. I think I'll compare posts per month to average Adsense revenue and see what comes out.
Pretty sure (you have to pay me for certain lol) there is a bonus for new content, followed by a penalty by auto suspicion, followed by - another bonus - if.
Hi Mark, what do you mean by "a penalty by auto suspicion".
After the initial boost for fresh content, most websites are treated with suspicion when they publish a new page or a radical change is made to an existing page. This will often result in the site being penalized for an arbitrary amount of time - I am sure you could eventually work it out, but it seems to be the more scams/money to be made in a niche means longer penalties. Sometimes.
What i've been noticing is that when i revist my much older hubs to edit (they are in dire need of improvements), my hubber score drops. Like its been doing in the past few days.
But the earlier hubs were 'crap' and i'm aghast sometimes when i read them myself. So i can't really leave them be.
Google takes ages to increase the ranking of new pages you add to other sites.
I hope my hubs improve in ranking as much as some of my other sites' pages have, that would result in some serious adsense income!

I used to use the revenue to pay bills, but am now living back at home with my parents so my bills are much smaller. I plan on using my revenue to move to California where I can get a higher paying job and hopefully...

I had a very high priced click for me anyway yesterday and I was able to determine which hub it came from on Analytics, but is there a way to break it down more to find out what they clicked on or what keyword the ad...

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some...
