My earning have never disappeared like this, even during previous P slaps. My earning dropped but still did pretty good by the end of the month. My earning have not been like this since the day I began using adsense in 2008. My earning dropped severely in Jan. I though, OK after Xmas drop and then the next month another 50% and now barely nothing. I have tried to post on Adsense forum, but the links keep me going in circles.
It isn't just a traffic issue. My traffic is down by about 15 - 20 % but my Adsense earnings this month are going to end up being down by over 75% compared with last month. And last month was half of January's Adsense.
I have 3 sites besides Hubpages and every single one has had Adsense go down this month to all time lows. They have the same traffic, but the ads have been really poor that are appearing. It may just be an Adsense thing.
Did your traffic plunge all of a sudden like some of us have experienced? Mine fell overnight as did Izzy's and others last August. We are in Google's sandbox which happened shortly after we changed over to sub-domains. You'll know this is the case if most of your Google.com traffic disappears from hubs which formerly received most of their traffic from them.
It makes no difference if you have the very best article out there either. Pure crap will be placed ahead of you and there's nothing you can do about it. No one knows how to fix it either. It's not very encouraging, to say the least!
My traffic dropped drastically after Christmas. I stopped writing. What is the point? I nor HP can make any money until this is resolved. I have a blogspot blog (about 5 yrs old)whose traffic is down 99.59%. How does one loose almost 100% of their traffic?
Hi 2besure, this must be so frustrating for you. Ive never been at $25 a day but I sure wouldn't want to lose it if I was. This is always a challenge and you wonder if it's worth the time but hopefully improvements will be made soon.
Journey...I like that username! Writing is a Journey and you have to learn how to adapt. When eHow stopped its writer compensation program, I lost 700 a month in earnings. They offered me a nice pay off; and I took it! I have three blogspot blog that I am doing over in Wordpress. I will see what tomorrow brings?
How old are your blogspot blogs? Did they have domain names or were they just ".blogspot" names?
If they are ".blogspot" names and you've had them more than a year, you'd be mad to move them to wordpress. You'll lose all the backlinks and subscribers you've already gained, any page rank you've earned, and you'll have to start right back at the bottom of the pile again.
And as Wry says, GoDaddy is OK to buy domain names from, but not a good place to host your blog.
I have 2 that are over two years old. Not much traffic and no money. So I am not losing anything. A few years ago, I used to make money from them regularly. Three years ago, I had also had 2 blogspot blogs deleted for no apparent reason. I am a pretty straight arrow, so i could not figure out why they were deleted. Now I don't trust them.
My earnings is all time low with a stable traffic.Chitika ads are performing much better in my personal blogs.I suspect the problem is with the Adsense ad delivery mechanism or Google is tweaking their ad delivery system.
Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...
3 and a half weeks,33 hubs, 1225 view, £1.05 adsense earnings!Yehaa my first pound. This has given me more determination to make this (Hubpages) a passive income. A lot more work to do, a lot more research and...
Okay, today I have noticed drastic decrease in page impressions and record low earnings in my adsense account. I had not thought before today that google algorithm change will have such a effect on our traffic and...
Well... I had thought about the 30 in 30 challenge but never got around to it for various reasons. With me being in Iraq, my time is divided amongst many, many things and therefore, I do not get to make it online every...
My Adsense earnings this month from HubPages was only 40% of what I normally earn with HubPages and for the first time in several months I did not make a payout in Amazon this month. However, the saving grace was some...
