    My traffic is back to almost 90% of pre Panda levels. I am happy but would be ecstatic if my earning too improves.

    I'm sure Google is paying less per click, try targeting higher paying keywords, I may switch to the sub-domain next Monday..waiting for this months balance and fresh month to try this.

    My traffic is back ,but honestly Im beginning to think its just pictures of triangles, to give me a false sense of security.

    Its not pointing to an increase in Adsense.

    4 red triangles (all day) and 2c..lol funny (not)

    IzzyM did the best I heard of there - it took me nearly a week after traffic returned to gain much in income.

    I've wondered if it was because advertisers need some time to see an increase in the value of a hub before they will pay more.  If that makes sense.  I just know that traffic went up, followed shortly by CTR and finally by CPC. 

    HPads went up just shortly after traffic did, but not by the percentage that traffic did.  Which makes me wonder if adsense began to outbid them and thus got more ads placed, which was what made the CTR go up.

    For me at least, it's all very confusing.  Too many variables (and probably dozens I don't even know of!) all coming together in the same time frame.

    I think that there is also a wider issue here, in that times are pretty tough out there and I think that a lot of advertisers may have cut back on their adwords campaigns to save money.

    I know that I have reduced my Adwords budget for my hypnotherapy site, so I am probably not the only one?  And if the advertisers aren't paying, we won't get paid so much for clicks either.
