    I have found traffic and earnings much improved over the past three months.  I would like to say thank you to staff for all the hard work you have put in.  I know it can't have been easy, especially during a Pandemic.  You are appreciated.

      Good to hear. I hope you continue to prosper. The migration has been without doubt a bumpy ride and a steep learning curve for all involved. Time will tell if the move finally pays off - I suspect there'll be a mix of outcomes, some niches gaining, others losing. Things might be settling down a bit now. From my side, CPM is up and traffic steady, despite the wobbles due to the pandemic.

        My experience is the same as yours, CPM higher than it has ever been and traffic doing really well.

        Seems like a lot more is at play here than just the migration. The video thing was definitely a big deal, so hopefully our friends from across the pond see a bump.

        When I first started working here, I saw several major fluctuations just because of Google updates. The internet is hard.

      Mine are not quite that low, but I'm definitely seeing a significant decrease compared to the last 2 years.

      This month looks like it should be better than what I've been seeing all year, but not by much. Hopefully as things get ironed out earnings and views will continue to come back for us.

      I'm in the same boat. Don't know the exact percentage, but traffic and earnings have definitely taken a drastic decline.

        I write witchcraft articles - and even though I don't do Halloween stuff, this is usually my busiest time of the year, traffic-wise, Amazon-wise and earnings-wise. Not this year - lowest monthly earnings so far sad

        Edit: My Adsense earnings via my own site, although not large, are up 54% on last year.

    Mine is better, but that soon will end once my seasonal articles lose traffic.

      Good to hear Abby, guess one cannot stress enough the importance of writing evergreen articles which stand the test of time.

    OK, for the first time I see ads on my niche articles and I see my videos performing again. Seems the problems are solved, thanks. Traffic is about the same and earnings too.

      Yes, credit to staff who have worked so hard.

    That's good news, Sally. I just checked and my traffic is up 100% compared to last year for the month of October. This is a drop compared to the peak gardening season where it was up 150%. Earnings have not been compared, but the CPMs are back up to a pretty good level, so I assume it is doing better than last year as well. A massive drop compared to gardening season, but that is expected for my niche.

    @Samantha, you keep saying the video is increasing earnings. Am I the only one not seeing ads on the video on the top? It does begin by saying loading ad and then the banner on the bottom loads. I cannot imagine the video earning on its own as it is a video commissioned by HP.

      That is good news lobobrandon, especially good to hear some positive news during these very strange times.

      @Brandon, that's weird. The ads are loading fine for me and I haven't heard any complaints recently. Anyone else having this problem?

        Just to clarify, this is an ad on the header video, so the ad on the ants' video in the case of Dengarden, right?

        I see no ads and I am testing in incognito when all my adblocks are switched off.

        EDIT: It works fine on the same browser and operating system on my work computer, I just checked. It is probably not a bug on your end.

          Yes, that is correct.

          Ok, phew. Was worried about having another video issue.

            Haha, thankfully it isn't.

    I'm noticing a significant boost in YMYL traffic and earnings which took a huge hit during the Medic Update a couple of years ago.
