$30 Per Day Google Adsense Earnings Dropped Way Low to Below 5 Bucks a Day? You're not alone...

Graphic shows daily trading of Google since 2004; 2c x 2 1/4 inches; 96.3 mm x 57.2 mmLately I've been more frustrated over Google Adsense pay-per-click earnings -- which due to a number of reasons have dropped for me from a great high of over $30 per day to around maybe 5 bucks per day -- across plenty of sites.

(I know some folks would love to see at least $5 in their Google Adsense accounts each day -- so I ain't complaining... I'm just saying...)

So it's no surprise that the make-sure-you-click-on-the-link-and-not-the-whitespace-on-ads changes that the Big G made recently played into this fact.

GOOG stock is down, and I can't help but to think it's something else.

In the meantime, folks have bandied about the philosophy that any Google improvements will in turn improve the quality and therefore pay rates of Google Adsense ads.

I hope so -- but in the meantime, I'm making like other smart probloggers like Darren Rowse and John Chow have done and forgetting more about Google Adsense monetization, and focusing on private ad investors to make the real moola.

I truly need to take some time to go through your blog and learn some of the SEO/monetizing tips that you freely share with your blog readers. I just want you to know how much your information sharing is appreciated...

peace, Villager

Its really worrying that this is happening. It has affected so many adsense users. Eventually everyone is just going to move to bidvertiser and CJ.

Wow, thats more than an 80% drop! While $5 in Adsense is good for me these days, I'm certainly going to keep my options open...

I would pass out if I had that much of a drop in my adsense earnings.

The problem is that Google is a great way to start monetizing a site. For people with little traffic, selling directly to advertisers isn't an option.
