Last year I witnessed my first major drop in Adsense earnings in January, Obviously Panda killed a lot of earnings for people. In December last year I had high hopes because my earnings kept rising and I was getting a a few hundred bucks, but January is apparently a bad time where advertisers don't pay after Christmas.
However, my earnings returned after the sub doamin switch and I'm back to Prepanda..however, I still want to brace for impact in January.
I'm currently concentrating on some private domains like Waynet..but I haven't got as many domains as him, I have bought dozens since I started this stuff though.
I'm just interested to know what other earners will be doing?
I've been a bit vacant from Hubpages due to my web design work but I will publish a hub within the next few days!
missed you guys!
I guess it does not matter to me. It is just something that happens. The internet is not my main job.
I wonder if there is somewhere to go to find out what kind of advertisements are going out in January and create a few Hubs to cater to that niche in order to "weather the storm."
I had a slight loss after Christmas, but January and February were still big earners for me.
It wasn't till the panda slap in the last week of February that I saw a huge loss in traffic and earnings.
Like everything, it depends on what topics you write about.

I have had the lowest earnings from since the time I first made anything on HubPages as of late. I took a look through the forum and couldn't find reference to others having the same problem. What I'd usually make in...

Sounds like there are lots of changes going on, and it seems that many Hubbers are discouraged. If you were starting from scratch on the site, would you still put in the effort to build your portfolio of hubs here, or...

I noticed that CPMs are really low so I decided to just start a test where I would just be running AdSense ads only and it's only day one, only one data point, but so far I'm already out-earning my HubAds...
