Why over 90% Drop in Adsense Earnings?

    I have noted a huge drop in Google Adsense earnings starting from today. Traffic has been way up. However, no clicks, CTR zero, and CPC nil. Is the HP Exchange Bidding Dynamic Allocation (EBDA) responsible for this glitch or is it Google Adsense bug?

      Perhaps it will take time to find its level.  Or, perhaps it's not all we'd hoped for after all.

      There is another post about this issue towards the end of which Paul explains what happened.  To date, the issue has not been fixed, but he did say that any earnings from Adsense will not be retroactive, meaning, they're gone.  If you have not done so already, switch back to the HP program or you'll earn nothing until the problem has been handled.

        I just checked my Adsense account and did earn some more this morning.  But I received a warning about adding my publishers Id to an ad txt file to one the niche sites?

        Anyone else get this warning? Any help would be much appreciated!

          Yes, I have this too. Strange, the warning came just as the earnings seem to return? Difficult to know what to do especially if you're a tech ignoramus like me. I'm going to wait for an official post from the HP staff to act, or not - and hope that in the meantime the earnings remain stable.
          As if to compensate, CPM on HP ads are rocketing.

            Looks like the problem has been resolved.  Hope yours is fixed too, Andrew. CPM for Hub ads has been consistently great, let us hope it goes above and beyond our expectations.

    That's right theraggededge. There are no Adsense earnings coming via Hubpages. Hope someone from Hubpages' team will fix it.

    It would be good to her from someone at HP what's happening? I had a big drop too!

      I just checked my Adsense account and made a few cents from a niche site, after a week of nothing. I think they might have fixed the problem? Can anyone confirm?

        Nothing much has changed from my end. Made a few pennies, but it was from my blogs.

      From my own end, I think they have resolved the issue. I made some few cents too.
