    Hello,

    I have a gaming site and my average CPC (cost per click) in august was 0.13$
    That is average for gaming site as I know.

    But this month (september) average CPC has fallen to 0.08.
    Now I am getting ~70 clicks but only ~5$, last month was better...

    Is this only in my site or all gaming site?
    SEMrush
    Please gaming site webmansters answer, thx.

    Oh ye, I have a site with game niche too. The whole summer my average CPC was lying around 0.40 - 0.70 cents.
    Now, it's like 0.25! Still good, but it did decrease for sure.

    Yeah, adsense sucks for gaming though Adwords charges quite a bit for advertising this same niche.
    Adsense pays much better for gaming hardware it seems.

    I have been considering pulling all Adsense from my Arcade and just pushing products.
    Gamefly pays pretty good if they would learn how to convert the people you send them. I pulled most of their ads after 250 clicks with no conversions.
