Lately 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.
