My CTR dropped by an absurd percentage in the last half day, and when I went to have a look at this week's ad layout testing, I couldn't help but notice those in the hubbers shares are screwed up in some cases. IMG below.
I doubt this is the full cause for my drop in CTR, given the awful green I see being used in hubbers shares for backgrounds, but it certainly doesnt help. It would be nice if someone could fix it.
Comparing AdSense activity on my HubPages for the first half of February to the second half of the month, I had a very small increase in impressions but my click-through rates and earnings doubled.
I think whatever HubPages is doing to experiment with AdSense and testing new ad deployments is actually working rather successfully.
That's precisely why people need to speak up when there is a sudden and significant drop. I dont see the green anymore, and my CTR has doubled from when I last posted. And yeah -- it really does happen/work that fast.
However, my CTR is still only 2/3 what it was all last week or the week before and Im sure its something to do with the awful gray link boxes that are also being tested in hubbers shares. Those link boxes were actually looking pretty good with the size increase until they changed the colors.

Over night I went from a 73, which I admit isn't very high, to a 49. Also, I have 80 hubs. All but 3 where featured. Today 63 of my hubs have been unfeatured. What's wrong with this picture?

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

Jennifer - first of all ... don't ask for readership. Let it come. And it will come if you do the following:1. Read others work and comment/ rate it2. Take part in the forum, even if it's just asking for help or offering help to others3. Publish hubs of interest to your fellow hubbers4. Rate up...

First, ask yourself this: Are you an "expert" in something specific, a certain "niche" perhaps? If you are, then GREAT! Keep reading...I'm creating a new series of hubs and I will need a few "experts" on a "niche" topic. "Which 'niche'," you ask?...
