Last year I witnessed my first major drop in Adsense earnings in January, Obviously Panda killed a lot of earnings for people. In December last year I had high hopes because my earnings kept rising and I was getting a a few hundred bucks, but January is apparently a bad time where advertisers don't pay after Christmas.
However, my earnings returned after the sub doamin switch and I'm back to Prepanda..however, I still want to brace for impact in January.
I'm currently concentrating on some private domains like Waynet..but I haven't got as many domains as him, I have bought dozens since I started this stuff though.
I'm just interested to know what other earners will be doing?
I've been a bit vacant from Hubpages due to my web design work but I will publish a hub within the next few days!
missed you guys!
I guess it does not matter to me. It is just something that happens. The internet is not my main job.
I wonder if there is somewhere to go to find out what kind of advertisements are going out in January and create a few Hubs to cater to that niche in order to "weather the storm."
I had a slight loss after Christmas, but January and February were still big earners for me.
It wasn't till the panda slap in the last week of February that I saw a huge loss in traffic and earnings.
Like everything, it depends on what topics you write about.

Is it just me or has anyone else had a significant decrease in earnings this month? Every hub is featured. Traffic actually increased. Any thoughts anyone?

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April 1st Conflicker Virus? I was thinking these two things can't be so harmful to my...
