    Hi,

    In the last 2 weeks, my earning have gone rock bottom (worse for over 1 year) - traffic is steady and I've actually added many sites to my account.

    Averaging about 50% less that it was prior to 2 weeks ago.

    Anyone else seing this, or have I just been hit with smartpricing?

    I got an email this morning from a friend who makes much more than I do talking about the same thing... 50% dip on a $1 earning is not that bad... But 50% dip on several hundred or more can hurt...

    Hmm, not sure..I've actually had an increase earnings on some of my sites. It may just depend on the niche?

    Big drop today after a big increase yesterday. Same ads since yesterday. It makes no sense. :(

    Down about 50% as well.

    Thought I was being penalised there for awhile, because we went very well in March and early April, then took nose dive.

    But, probably more related to a drop in traffic.

    Big drop, which always happens to me around the end of the first week of the month. No major concern, the time you spent worrying (and refreshing and checking stats) could have been better spent building more traffic and adding fresh content.
