    My earnings/click has dropped a lot this week. Before I was doing ok getting about 6 $/ day. If the earnings/click will get any lower I will end up needing 100 clicks for 1 $.

    Anyone else CPM dropped a lot this week?

    I've had my best ever and worst ever CPM days this week, but I'm looking at an overall increase this month. Are you sure you aren't panicking over pretty standard blips in income? Advertisers budgets come and go so its not unusual to see this happen. If you are really worried you could try diversifying into another field rather than having all your income from one website (I'm guessing its a single website from the $6 a day?).

    Cheers

    SAME HERE. Yesterday was worst day of the month (by a lot) and today is even worse. Although my CTR has remained close to the same, my page impressions have dropped significantly and payout was low yesterday but up today... but still overall page impressions falling like a shuttle without booster rockets.

    ugh! I was just getting comfortable in my previous world... this is not cool. I hope it jumps back.

    The odd thing... when I reference a day out of this month on what google said it served, page impressions wise... and matched it up to another day this for this month on what was close... by just a few hundred impressions... yesterday I had 10,000 more visitors (based on Webalizer) and 50,000 more pages served... than the previous day. I can't find any holes on Google NOT serving ads, but overall less in all categories areas.

    UGH.

    Adsense is peforming very well on my sites so far for August. Plus, it's been much more stable than any other month since I started using them, even not seeing the decrease on the weekends anymore.

    I have seen the same thing, really steady until yesterday. In fact, I had my biggest day ever this month... Ill be lucky today if I break half of my best day for today.

    ugh

    Well, I'm also in. It started last Monday. :(
    Not only that my adblocks aren't filled up with ads anymore, leaving some even blank, the revenue per click is going down like hell for me.

    I have a lot of clicks worth only 1 Cent ! :eek:
    Must have to do with that "smart pricing" thing, don't know.

    I hope It'll change again.

    That is what the new google algorithim is supposed to do, it's not going to change unless google changes it, but according to them it's helping us all earn more, strange since they started it, my earnings have dropped roughly 40%
