So far this month my Adsense income has dropped almost in half. Is this happening to anybody else? Don't know why this would happen. Although it's a secondary income source, it was doing really well until now. Can't figure out what the problem might be.
Plenty of AdSense clicks, but they're paying very little for this time of year. Down about 50% from this time last year.
yes, but mine are down 50% from last month!
I think comparing to last year is a better way to look at things. CPC or CPM and not total values.
I'm not sure if it'll make you feel any better, but, as a new hubber, my earnings are zero. It looks like they'll be this way for quite a while. I would be grateful for any tips on how to improve this situation.
Eurofile, the only way to earn money is to write several stellar quality articles. Some will start getting lots of views, others will always be kind of dormant, depending on content and competition - it's hard to predict.
Keep up the good work and things will happen for you.
Well researched articles. Pick any topic you want, just make it the most detailed and helpful article on the internet for that topic. That's it.
If you read the comments about this post you'll see that a good number of people are saying this is not the case. What bothers me, if this IS the case, is why Google would slit it's own financial throat by doing something like this.
"So if you see your AdSense earnings drop due to ads not showing up, you can probably associate the issue to this." This is not us.
Also, they are doing this to make sure that ads only show on the right pages. Because if I were to write a page on terror on my website ads would show for a while, until the crawlers came and realized this. I would not want my business ads next to a page talking about terror.
It's not a considerable amount I make on Adsense as I use the HP Ad program, but this month has been really good in terms of income. I have not checked the average CPC or stuff like that. The income is already 90% of last months final amount.
EDIT: Do not forget that this is a new quarter and slight drops are expected as someone pointed out in another thread related to HP CPMs.
Just noticed this was updated last November. It shows detailed layout of placement of ads on different platforms and for either Adsense or Hubpages ad programs.

My income is showing a solid uptick in fact. Just the opposite.
My Adsense earnings are up in comparison with last month and last year.
However, I am on the HP ad program here, so my Adsense income from HP sites only represents a fraction of my total earnings there.
It may be a niche specific issue possibly? As Brandon has already suggested, you really need to evaluate the CPC and CPM figures to begin with.
Since we are anyways talking articles, the other day I was editing few of my older articles and there was a poll at the end on one of them. I changed a word in the poll without changing the meaning, there was a pop-up which warned me that all the poll results will be lost. I did not get it, so I went ahead anyway. Guess what? All the poll result of readers who had voted over so many years was wiped-off... Ahhhh, the pain... Did anyone witness this before or was it me the only dumb- fella? ....
I think most people here see that warning and realise what it means. But sometimes it's better to word things better. I deleted old polls a few times.
This is common across the board for everybody. If you change wording at all in a poll, and they warn you about this, you lose the whole thing. Warnings are there for a reason!!
I have noticed quite the opposite. Maybe niche has something to do with it. I write almost exclusively on travel - trip ideas, activities etc- and have noticed that my cpms have been much higher for the past few months and this month is no exception!
Hope it rises again soon for you.
This has nothing to do with CPMs...I'm talking about Adsense here, which does not use CPMs as a basis for paying earnings. I also, as you probably know, write about travel, etc. Last month was the best month I've ever had on HP, and this month, while very good also, still has shown a major drop in Adsense income, which has surprised me. I might not even make payout this time!
Adsense does pay with CPMs and CPC, not just CPC. Take a look at this image from my Adsense dashboard for last month. I get a little more than 50% of my Adsense earnings from CPM ads.

I really was unaware of that. If that's the case, then I don't understand the drop because my views are doing well although CPMs have dropped about 30%.
I'm not sure why. Do you have questions? Maybe people are not reaching that one ad that is Adsense now because of that.
I don't quite understand your statement...what do you mean by "Do you have questions"
The new QnA feature. From what I know, when we have the HP program active, the only Adsesne ad is below the comments. If you have QnA it is possible that people are not going through the comments as much as before. Hence the less views in case of CPM ads and less clicks too.
If this is true, then everybody should be seeing lower Adsense income, yet some are reporting that it is still holding or going higher. Nonetheless, if this is true, then those ads need to be moved!
Yes. I see now that you were indeed talking asking about AdSense. I don't know enough about that to even venture to have an opinion. I sincerely hope it all gets on the up and up soon!
I hate to say it, but mine have increased the past few months. I made my highest amount ever last month, this month is on track to match it. I tend to do best on weekends as well.

My HP traffic down since last three to four days and it's a matter of great concern for me. I have already written 50 hubs for the contest but still I am not seeing the traffic that I was seeing post google algorithm change. Is there anyone else who is facing the same problems. I have started...

Can I?I have a couple of smaller accounts. As Amazon currently operates, my earnings go into one pot. From what I can understand, that won't happen once HP take over my Amazon. Or am I wrong?If I'm not, why not? I am going to lose out as it is, and I can't see the separation of my HP accounts being...

I am really happy with the performance of my hubs so far. I am making incremental Adsense income every day now, as well as occasional purchases from Amazon. Making a believer out of me.

I have worked out that my adsense earnings seem to be growing by a dollar a month. Now by my reckoning that means I can retire in about 300 years, I wonder how ancient I shall look then, " as ancient as now methinks " " yeah but so are you ". " Yeah but I am a dollar better...

After 3 months of active work my earnings through Amazon was only 3.70$. Although the conversion was 20% - 13 sales, with 64 clicks (goods is very cheap - the cost of 1, 99$).Me interests, whether there are people who earn here by means of Amazon (at least 100 dollars a month)?

I just had a look at my Google Adsense earnings and found that instead of going up I have a depressing €3.66 made this month. Yes, this month!
