    No, adsense and adwords queries are almost always answered within a day in my experience (although the answer is not always very helpful) - see below:-

    (NB - Does anyone have any objections to me pointing them in the direction of this thread?)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello Jordan,

    Thank you for your email.

    I understand that you are concerned about a decline in your earnings and I
    know that this can be frustrating.

    It is common for earnings to fluctuate significantly over time. Since a
    number of factors influence earnings, it is difficult for me to pinpoint
    exactly why your earnings might have declined. These factors include, for
    instance, changes in ad inventory, fluctuations in the cost-per-click or
    cost-per-thousand-impressions of the ads appearing on your site and your
    users' click-through selections.

    We are always working to improve monetisation for our publishers. In order
    to help our engineering team achieve this goal, I will be happy to pass
    along any suggestions or feedback that you have.
    SEMrush
    We hope that over time you find that your earnings increase to levels that
    you are happy with. In the short term, you may wish to look at our
    Optimisation Tips page at https://www.google.com/adsense/tips. By
    experimenting with a few simple changes, you may find that you are able to
    significantly improve the performance of your ads.

    For additional questions, I'd encourage you to visit the AdSense Help
    Centre ( http://www.google.com/adsense_help ), our complete resource
    centre for all AdSense topics. Alternatively, feel free to post your
    question on the forum just for AdSense publishers: the AdSense Help Group
    ( http://groups.google.com/group/adsense-help ).

    Sincerely,

    John
    The Google AdSense Team

    Subject: Adsense Earnings...
    Date: Wed, 10 Oct 2007 15:35:59 +0100

    Can you shed any light on why earnings are approx 40% of what they
    used to (over the last 3 weeks) even though I have more or less the same
    number of page views / clicks?

    Thanks.

    The reason I asked if you were kidding is due to the fact that I knew you, or anyone else who would think to write, was going to receive the very form reply letter, you have received.

    ;)

    Peace!

    Interesting ... I have exactly the opposite, my earnings went to double from July to September. Well I optimized a lot on my page last 2 month and getting like 50% more clicks and impressions then in juli, and my overall eCPM was little above 1$.

    Maybe it is the kind of ads which make the difference, my site is mainly interesting for video games, games and german language.

    I've seen revenue decrease by about 30% in the past couple of weeks, but I've seen a similar drop in traffic, so no smart-pricing yet for me (knock on wood).

    I'm having another good day. Three in a row. :D
    again, not what I normally made but not 7 bucks either.

    Something has definitely changed.

    has anyone tried the new upgraded 2.0 ads? I noticed that MFA sites that generate traffic from adwords are not allowed. I think that may be google's way of saying publishers and advertisers have had enough.

    Is this just a case of most advertisers tightening their belts a bit before the big Xmas push?

    I think Ive been hit with smart pricing also!!
    I got 8-28 cents a click up until yesterday, and today Im getting 2-3 cents after I started my adword campaigns.

    Where is a good place to get a explanation of smart pricing?
