I have the highest traffic I've ever seen but mediocre earnings. Why?


Nothing has really changed about my account and I get more traffic then ever, but my earnings are about 60% of what they used to be when my traffic was lower. How is that possible and why is it happening?

    Maybe advertisers are simply spending less now, but I really don't know. I hope things will pick up because this situation is not giving me enough incentive to keep up my efforts.

    Google are actually not in control of their ad pricing. The price is determined by bidding, so if advertisers are fewer and willing to pay less, the price will automatically drop.

    Hi,

    I have done that and I think I've found my niche. It is technology and my best hubs suggest big commercial intent and the same hubs with the same keywords were doing great before. I don't think it's me this time. My keywords are great for CPC.
