    Are you guys noticing any change in CTR of Adsense in the last two weeks - last two weeks of April?  As it is, the CTR on hubs is a bit low, and now I am noticing that the CTR on my hubs is getting even lower. What's your experience, Hubbers?
    Have you noticed any change in the click through rate on your Adsense ads?

    I wondered what could be the possible reason. First I thought it might be the new "related hubs" box at the end of the article. But that doesn't make sense because the two most popular Adsense ad spots are right at the beginning of the hub. So I am perplexed. Is Google doing something that is extraordinary? My CTR is as low as 1.36% on Hubpages in these two weeks whereas I get a decent CTR on my other websites. I hope this is short term, because my earnings have fallen because of low CTR, despite pageviews on the rise.

    I don't know. It's a mystery.

    I've noticed some drops as well but I try to worry about them too much because it always goes back up soon after.

      You're right. It keeps fluctuating. However, these days, the drop has been significant. The best solution is not to put all eggs in one basket - Adsense.
