This month hits my record low for adsense earnings, I did not even reach payout! This has not happened since 2008 when I first joined. I find this odd as it never happened before. Thankfully, the hubpages ad program along with amazon/ebay helps compensate the loss, so I am not complaining, but I just wonder what may be going on? With more than 800 articles here, not sure why google adsense has suddenly decided to just not like me anymore..I am happy I have many clients to write for and have my eggs is different baskets which is helping me keep up.
Google was big on 1-cent, 2-cent, 3-cent clicks for me this month. Not their fault; cheap advertisers. Hopefully, things will be better in September.
This month has been bad for me compared to earlier months and months last year in 2011. My traffic continues to decline. I don't know if it's just because the articles I have are being searched less over time or if it's because it's August and not yet the holiday times. Many people are going back to school and work etc..So searches on the internet may be different.
Earning money from writing online is really hard to do anymore. It sucks
I have been on HubPages since 2006 and this is my lowest point for quite a while. My traffic started to go down around February. I hardly get Google AdSense earnings anymore; most comes from the HubPages program.
Most of my Adsense earnings come from other sites, not HubPages, but since the start of August they have been dropping. The views are the same but the CTR and the CPC are going down. I could understand the CPC being down to advertisers paying less, but the CTR? I can't believe that people suddenly stopped clicking from month to month.
There has been speculation that Google has changed the way it validates clicks. Some people have even suggested that it is experiencing "data losses". I don't know if that is true but the RPM is getting to ridiculously low levels.
As I said in the 'Intro to Idled Hubs' forum, I don't know why we don't just get 'archives'. Least they may still get found whereas complete de-index does no good for goals of writer or the site. It's done on blogger why not us too?
My traffic already appears to have started rising in anticipation of the new week.
This last couple of week or so, on days my hubs have seen rising views, I'm seeing lower daily earnings. I understand this is supposedly because advertisers are paying less, but I'm getting to the point of reevaluating whether HubPages is worth the effort. You can only go so far on sweat and hope.
Although still marked as pending, my earnings for the last three days have just increased by 50%. Just FYI.
Darn it! My traffic just dropped below a round number...

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 earnings. Today, I find myself what I was three years back. Only a few cents per...

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I understand that earnings are not final until final, but the most recent case was...

Is google adsense only paying for clicks and not impressions? My adsense earnings have almost gone down to nothing. Has anyone else experienced this?

I was wondering if Hubpages offer a revenue sharing HTML code that can be implemented into the hubpages members own websites.The Hubpages Ad programme seems to work better than google adsense in respect of how much can be earned per 1000 page views, I would much rather have hubpages adverts being...
