    9 clicks 49 cents?

    Well I did that ad blocked I forget the site, but I was reffered to it before.

    But my site www.gotbanned.info Had 9 clicks worth 49 cents.. That is an all time LOW Usually I make 1 dollar off 2-3 clicks, I made 7 dollars with 10 clicks. What the hell happened?

    Different content calls different keywords, different keywords provide different click earnings.

    Have a cry maybe? What can you do? For different ads you'll get different amounts.

    well at least you are getting some clicks... cents per click better than no clicks.

    I have days when I average over a dollar per click, I have days when I'm lucky to get 3 cents per click. All depends on what keywords are showing

    on a side note, your site www.gotbanned.info I can't even read. Dark blue writing on black background is almost impossible to see. and further down the page with the check boxes it's black writing on a black background so nothing shows up. AND 5 out of the 7 images are broken

    What if the advertisers you blocked were paying more per click than the ones showing up now? Google does automatically show what should be the highest clicking ads -- ordered by their quality score, which is a mix of relevancy, CPC and CTR.

    One or two advertisers were probably paying a lot for your keywords and supporting your previously high CPC. When advertisers like this pull out, it can have a big effect on your short term earnings.
