    Is anyone else's Adsense CPC up and down all the time

    Just a thought, my CPC for ads served by adsense varies by about 10,000%...lowest click <2cents> highest <$2>

    obviously its slightly different for more/less profitable sections on the site...but given that its roughly the same content has anyone else experienced these kinds of google-swings across the same site?

    mmm mine has fallen, even in the 1mnth term...page views up, clicks up..total revenues...down...looking at my site google appears to have boxed our front page in a cheaper clicks box somehow...can up the same page under a diff name to our server (eg index-2.htm) and goog displays the higher paying ads we want on there, but our index.htm page is displaying cheaper ads..so I think that might explain our lower cpc...

    am prob gonna try searchfeed...sure they prob make less per click...but thats like for like and I dont see how we can do worse than 3c/click with them...but will see..

    In the short term, CPC will go up and down dramatically all the time. It has to do with the constantly increasing and decreasing supply and demand for different keywords.

    thanks wealthstream, that makes perfect sense

    that said, how would you explain google putting my index.htm in a category `box` that happens to display lower keywords? make sense or not?
