Google Disaster: Comscore Reports Awful January

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by danimal, Feb 26, 2008.

    have your adsense earnings have dropped like a rock lately? you are not alone:

    "Comscore reported shockingly bad US paid click performance for Google in January: flat growth year-over-year versus a 25% increase in Q4. Even if Comscore is only half right, this is a disaster...
    SEMrush
    UPDATE 2: Jeffries adds Comscore's monthly data on Google click growth for October through January. This adds more fuel to the theory that Google's click growth has ground to a halt:

    October: 37%
    November: 27%
    December: 12%
    January: Flat

    It is hard to see how this deceleration could possibly be explained by "accidental click reduction" and other quality programs (An explanation that never made sense for the Q4 shortfall anyway). The steady deceleration also makes it hard to argue that the January report is just a wacky one-month Comscore aberration."

    This is causing Google stock prices to fall drastically, thanks to IBM share buyback or I expect the fall to be worse. But I am thinking Google might be stricter with Adsense and the quaility of the Adsense Publishers in order to increase click thrus, that may in turn be bad for some of us who may not have met Adsense benchmark and hence take the risk of being axed :(

    Congrats! You are running direct in contrast to most other Adsense publishers, at least judging from the comscore report :)

    Yep, that´s what i´m afraid, that google becomes much more stricter with adsense...baning lots of people. I don´t do invalid clicks and stuff but let´s see what will they do.

    For start they reserve the right to ban people if they dont make enough clicks...
