Smart Pricing

Hi all,

So for the past ten days or so I seem to have been smart priced. My earnings have been slashed by about 60%-70% while traffic and clicks have remained the same.

It’s never happened before and in short, I don’t have a clue what to do. I’ve searched everywhere and the general advice seems to be “build more relevant content”. The thing is, my site is completely relevant in my eyes (most traffic is from search engines etc) and has been performing well for the past two years. I understand the reasons why Adsense has smart pricing and they must protect their advertisers, but I don’t have a clue how I can make my users act any differently!

So, does anyone have any suggestions on how to come out of this?


Maybe this can help you: Is too much blending bad for business?

That sounds a really good tip, thanks. My ads are really blended in, so that could definitely be plausible.

Nice site by the way.
