I thought traffic increase should at least result in some increase in revenue. My traffic has increased by more than 40 % in the last 2-3 days and has even gone past the pre algo levels. But I have earned zero in Adsense in 3 days. I understand I have the ad program activated but that decreases adsense does not get in to zero I believe. Would love to know about what other hubbers have to say on this.
I've been talking about this issue this morning over here
Traffic does not automatically equate with earnings. It increases the potential, but if a Hub isn't meeting the needs of visitors, isn't something that requires a "buy" or is on a topic that just draws eyeballs, then all you are going to see is increased traffic.
For example, those Hubs you have on budgeting... why would someone trying to save money take any action(s) that might result in spending?
I'm seeing the same thing on hubs with lots of ways for people to spend money. The traffic just isn't converting the way it used to. I have lots of adsense only hubs, that used to generate revenue - not anymore.
There's either been a change in the quality of the traffic or the quality of the ads.
