Yesterday was my lowest HP earnings in 2 months.
That alone would not elicit me to post in this forum.
But at the same time it appears that AdSense just dropped HP's website revenue optimization formatting ranking from 4 out of 5 to 3 out of 5.
Only HP can figure out what, if anything, is awry.
I wonder if the time of year has anything to do with it. March is Spring Break month in the U.S. and many families take vacations during that time (and the spring break varies by state and school so different schools have spring break on different weeks.) Just a thought.
It's the AdSense "demotion" that's got me concerned, as for the rest of it,
March to date, I'm seeing ad earnings activity nearly identical to the exact same time period last year. I'll have to see how the rest of the month shakes out.
Also remember, US tax season is approaching. No matter what you think or who you talk to, more people don't pay their taxes until the last minute, so extra expenditures tend to dry up in the month ahead of April 15. Retail is some of the slimmest about this time of year.
Just curious to know where do you see that adsense has dropped HP's website revenue optimization?
Slacker that I am, 99% of my AdSense account is HP.
Thus, as HP goes, so go I.
Interesting side note. When on HP ads, the ranking is usually 4. Awhile back when I switched to straight AdSense for 2 weeks to get my AdSense balance to payout, the ranking dropped to 3. When I switched back to HP ads, the ranking went back to 4. I shall not speculate as to why.
Thanks! I thought I was missing out on some great esoteric information.

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP. Recently though, since my earnings have dropped so much, I figured I didn't have much...

I'm so confused right now. So I finally got my AdSense set up correctly (yet it's still wrong), and I am seeing numbers recorded in my reports. But why is the referring website only Hubpages.com? I have 18 articles and all but 3 are published on niche sites. I thought, surely views from these...

My Adsense earnings (not the ad program earnings) dropped by two-thirds yesterday yet I have the same amount of traffic as always. This has never happened before. Did I miss some kind of FYI that the page restructuring was going to affect Adsense earnings? This is bunk.

Welcome to Hubpages.I received my first ad click in the first few weeks I was here.The more content I post the more the amount of clicks have increased. I did not start seeing any clicks until I started receiving traffic from search engines.
