For 2 months I have been watching google totally mess around with my earnings. I was approaching $500 a month in January and advancing nicely, but then panada hit and knocked that back to $200.
Now on the advice of some people here on hubpages, I spread my work around to other sites. Never put your eggs in one basket. Well every site I write for got slammed so it didn't matter, except for one - spammy litte bukisa.com
If you don't know about buiksa, they are the poor brother to article sites. They allow a lot of poor articles and they allow you to put your content there if you own it and its on other sites too. Proportionally, I get a lot of views out of bukisa and eventually they do translate to clicks, somedays its a couple bucks, sometimes its $5. Frankly, it saved my business and now I am concentrating more effort there with improving results.
I joined Bukisa a couple of years ago and never got a penny out of it. Deleted off my account as a waste of time.

Well, I would have made it sooner if it hadn't been for stupid Panda. But after a year, I finally got to the place where I've achieved payout in one month! Now if I could actually get a payout every month from now on, I'd be happy! I think I quite like HP new advertising plan after all.

All my views are way down, how is everyone else doing?
