Can someone steal my ad revenue?

    Hi,
    This may be a silly question, I don't know if its possible to somehow hijack or steal clicks or revenue but I have no other explanation.

    My traffic volume is unchanged, but my adsense revenue has dropped from an avg of $4 - 5 dollars a day, to pennies.
    It happened suddenly about 2 months ago.

    The only thing that changed is my host.

    Thanks for any input

    sure is... they could have hacked your ftp account..and changed your ad client ID from your own to theirs.

    or they could have copied your site completely and are taking most of your traffic completely.

    change your passwords and google for clone sites.

    Ok 8Everything, will do.
    Thanks

    This seems to have occured around the same time, I switched my DNS setting to point at a new host, could that have anythig to do with adsense drop? (Traffic hasn't changed)

    I still get reports from my old host server, with the occasional hit. (1 hit every 4-5 days) I don't know why any traffic is going to the old host server
