Reader Poll: How Is Your Google AdSense Performing?

It’s been exactly two weeks since we talked about Google redefining what a clickable area is in an effort to combat click fraud, so I figured that was adequate time to let the change soak in and examine some trends. At the time of the change, it made sense for Google and advertisers, but it fueled a lot of speculation that sites that depend on Google AdSense to generate income would likely lose out on some of their monthly income.

Something that a few publishers speculated on is that with lower fraud rates, publishers would likely be willing to pay more per click to get their advertisements seen. We are also approaching the holiday season, meaning that advertising budgets are going up and a lot of other businesses are launching seasonal advertising campaigns.  If this theory holds true, Google AdSense publishers should still be seeing consistent income.

In looking over my analytics and AdSense reports, it looks like my income from Google AdSense has dipped some, despite a heavy increase in traffic.   Is this due to the clickable area change?   Unfortunately, that isn’t something that I can be sure of.  As David points out, a lot of things can factor into a change in pay-per-click advertising.   Thats why I decided to poll my readers and find out how AdSense is performing for you over the past two weeks.   Has your income remained steady?  Have you noticed any trends?

  • Well,

    You did ask, so I must answer. I just released some amazing news a few hours ago on my blog. I had a record breaking Adsense day yesterday.

    On another note… man it sure is cool that you added David’s video here. He really spilled the beans in this one and its gotten quite a reaction so far. 🙂

    That is quite the paycheck for one days work! I listened to your BlogTalkRadio yesterday with David. I’ve been reading Chris Pirillo for a few years now and am a huge fan (we went to the same college and he’s from here in Des Moines, Iowa). He’s been doing the coupon thing for awhile and has had some success. Glad to see its working well for you two as well.

    I must admit, you and David make me a little dizzy with all your online adventures. I don’t know how you keep it all straight with only 24 hours in a day 8)

    I like that you and David have jumped into vlogging a bit.

    As for my above post, it was actually written Sunday morning. The last three days I’ve had significant jumps in daily earnings. Hopefully this continues through the end of the year so I can buy some extra presents!

  • Since you have already answered your question, let me just congratulate you and wish you all the best for the festive season.

    Well I have seen a definite dip in AdSense earning since past week and guess it is due to the reduction of clickable areas. Clicks have dropped by more than 15% so I am trying different things with ad placements.

    I don’t know that it has anything to do with the change of protocol but my adsense revenues are up. Not a lot, but up.

  • My clicks and impressions are pretty much the same as last month. Changing the clickable area does not seem to have effected me.

    I wish my figures were somewhere near Garry’s. Very impressive, I will keep dreaming.

    On an average it seems that it does not seem to seem to have made much difference then.

    Wow, there are a lot of positive comments on their Google Adsense Perfoming. However it is not for me. For the whole November, I can feel that there is a drop over the CTR and of course the revenues. With the same amount of traffics, I can’t generate the same amount of money like before. 🙁

  • Even my income with adsense was down this month by about 25$ due to low CTR .
