LOL, Google won't ban you from Adsense for the figures below since it
doesn't include CTR etc...

Wow, that isn't very good for that number of visitors even if you have
the sort of content/traffic that doesn't convert well.

I have sites with far less traffic making more than the above. My main
literature site (the main domain only) doesn't have the best placement
of ads (been meaning to fix that for ages), has the sort of content
that results in very low eCPM (which means each click doesn't make
much) has about the lowest CTR of all my sites, yet makes more per day
than your site make per month!! Oh, and it receives around double the
hits your site gets, though hits isn't the best indicator of traffic
especially as that site of mine is over 99% text based content, so the
number of hits generated per page loaded is probably lower than most

I would have been happy to help you out with a few tips Roy, looking
at your site you haven't a clue about how to use Adsense so you need
them, but last time I tried to help with this, you called me a liar,
so don't think I'll bother trying this time. I'll leave it at I guess
your site could make at least $5 a day, probably a lot more :-))

Paul, my Adsense income dropped in Feb because of various factors
including the registrar of my main sites messed up big time, deleted
one site (they didn't pay the fees) and almost transferred another to
someone else!! This meant the sites was offline for about 5 days or so
(they were totally incompetent).

Adsense income dropped considerably because the ads shown after the
sites went live again was reset, over time the program tends to
'learn' which ads to show/not show so you make reasonable amount of
money. It's still not fully recovered to where it was before they
messed up!

When it resets or you add the ads to another site they aren't the best
ads for the site and so you don't make as much money. You mentioned
starting a new Adsense registration, that might be the problem (or
part of it).

There was a few other problems as well, so I went from breaking above
$150 a day (best day USD192.01) to now below $100 a day, but I'll be
able to push it back up in the next 6 months or so with new content.

You also said you are using the Adsense for search, I've found the
amount of money you make from that is negligible compared to the
Adsense for content revenue. So concentrate on Adsense for content and
you'll make more money.
