    Back to the drawing board... But how come I got less impressions and made more money with the same content and ad placement the only thing that changed was the amount of visitors No I got double the amount of clicks and impressions.

    Your getting a REALLY low click through rate. I feel your pain, most of my million + pageview a month sites earn really low per click.

    Since your traffic doubled, I'm guessing a majority of the traffic is outside of the US? Non-US traffic will affect your PPC.

    Do you mind me asking what site this is? You can contact me by private message if you like, I can take a look at it and provide some feedback.

    I have had similar problems in the past, improving a website adding more content can lead to more impressions & less clicks & money, cause people are finding what they need

    .'. no need to click on ads........

    here is the website nowaygirl.com guys please check it for me and let me know what I am doing wrong. I made 30,000 Impressions yesterday and only cashed out on 7 dollars. I had text and image ads but I have just changed them all to image to see if that will help.

    Your site topic is not a good niche for adsense, so the CPC is low. Also you will get a lot of public ads which don't pay anything.

    It was good before... there were days when I made about 30 bucks. with lower impressions. I was just wondering why it went lower when I got more impressions... I have made all the ads image ads. I got a 15% increase in CTR so far. If adsense is not good for this niche what kind of advertising do you guys recommend.

    It depends on the ads, different ads pay different cost

    Seconded. You also need to try to commercialize your content a little more. Try looking into a friendfinder.com affiliate ad or see about
    getting affiliate accounts relating to app developers or myspace layouts etc... By supplementing your adsense revenue with programs
    that perform well in the social network / community type niche you will see a much higher return. Most people will click, laugh at a couple
    of funny photos and leave. You need to capitalize on their visit by offering what they want = social networking + humor.

    Guys, he said it was good before so nothing to do with his niche or layout as he didnt change it.

    Maybe your ads are not related now? have a look at the old post that do have high CTR, see whats different

    It's not about the traffic, it's about the CTR. If you get more traffic / less clicks your price (earnings) goes down. The key point is that you need to do two things:

    1) improve your CTR to generate optimal PPC
    2) subsidize your adsense account with other revenue streams.

    I believe that pretty much all of us have faced this situation before and unfortunately quick growth and fast traffic also means less clicks.
    In my personal experience doing the two things above have proven fruitful to our network and converting clicks is not easy. You may want
    to reconsider your placement or at the very least consider adding more glue to your site (things that will keep visitors on longer) in order to
    get more exposure for your adsense links and hopefully generate more clicks. I'm not saying I'm right or wrong I'm simply saying it worked for
    me and I'm giving you a perspective on my own personal experiences with adsense. I hope that helps. Good luck mate! XD

    I have practically given up on CTR, whatever I get I get. Only huge traffic makes sense now.

    ok I have made a few changes ... Looked over my keywords and changed some ads settings like only run image ads. Image ads are best for entertainment websites and image ads only. CTR went up by 12% and now things are clicking... even though I got 71 clicks and only 10 bucks. 30,000 impressions.
