    Is your Revenue decreased after the new rule?

    Hello,

    Google new rule is:-
    http://adsense.blogspot.com/2006/12/...nt-policy.html

    A lot of my friends revenue is decreased. They were earning like $15/$20 perday but now they earn $1/$5 per day. And some of my friends have lost all of their revenue. They were earning from the "THUMBLIANED-ADS" but now theres no other way to attract user to click the ad. The CTR is decreased from 90% to 5%

    I felt very sad when i saw this new rule .

    What about you?

    Thanks

    This isn't a new rule. It was just often ignored either through misunderstanding or just plain trying to cheat.

    Good content should display ads that will encourage clicks. That's what Google is betting on.

    Sorry, I used proxy because all the ".blogspot.com" blogs are blocked in Pakistan. (Editing the post).

    Its good and bad, both. Its Good because now people will click on Ads really, and the advertiser will get real visitors.

    Its bad, because lots of people were earning from putting Thumbnails near ads and through that way people clicks the Ad mistakely

    That is what the problem is. Imagine if you're paying to drive traffic to your site for each person that clicks to your site. I'd be mighty pissed if I was spending money for traffic which would leave my site once they found out they clicked on an ad while having no intentions doing so.

    I never did it to begin with, so I don't care.

    But I do like the idea. So many advertisers were getting screwed out of money from people clicking things they were basically tricked into.

    I would be willing to bet my shoes, that the vast majority people who get kciked out of adsense and say "There can't be invalid clicks, I never clicked my own ad" THIS is why they were kicked out

    Followed by said advertiser unchecking the content network box in their AdWords account, decreasing revenue for AdSense publishers. I for one bid less for AdSense clicks than search clicks on the campaigns I allow to show on content sites at all.

    I think it was pretty inevitably that Google would have to put a stop to this. It's quite a clear case of publishers exploiting the carelessness of their visitors, which will ultimately have a negative effect on network wide click through rates.

    Although I never used it, I'm sure the image thing was a great strategy for publishers while it lasted. Now that everyone does it, however, it's lost most of its initial effect, and isn't a decent solution for long-term revenue.
