I am sure that many of you have experienced with significant adsense earning down recently either your low-paying niche keywords or advertisers are making low bid due to economic crisis. The answer is unclear as the Q4 Google Revenue was quite positive. However, the revenue share was down from 75% to 72% as reported by Digital Inspiration.

Many of you have tried to use high paying keywords in the hope to drive highly profitable click but it seems Google is smart enough to validate this and most of you still face with low revenue from your Adsense. There are a lot of tutorials that can help your boost your adsense earning by using adsense multiple palettes or replacing PSAs with your own ads or even using larger ad content units. However, the important factor is that advertisers do not make high bid and Google decrease the revenue share rate.

As reported by SERoundtable blog, AdSense publishers were complaining about lower earnings. So, this blog has run quick poll to get opinions how many percents of publishers who had the same problem with adsense earning and here is the result.

I asked, Have Your AdSense Earnings Dropped in February, from January? is the question raised for the poll.

51 people or 59.3% said Yes, 31 people or 36% said No and 4 people had other things to say. Here is the chart:

The rate drop is because of the number of blogs and websites evolving each day, that the prices have gone down to this extent, Now the scenario has become like Direct advertising is the only solution to the problem . As they return way more money than adsense

Why do people say to join adsense to those who are under 18 yrs old ? Also YOU cannot GET ads added to a website instantly anymore ! YOUR site must be up on the net for 6 months BEFORE you can put in ad scripts ! Also adsense has changed to smart pricing for advertisers that cut the cost per click down drastically ! IN other words it will take you 2 years to create 100 websites and blogs and get mucho traffic to each per day to start earning good money with any ad program !

SEO – wait a sec here. Google has imposed a 6 month wait period for Adsense? When did this happen?

Long time ago men, check the policy and you will get it.

@SEO: you are right! However, many bloggers are creating a lot of MFA by autoblog scripts. What do you think?

Many people have seen their Adsense income gone down, but I think it has something to do with the bad economy at the moment.Advertisers are spending less money on Adwords right now, and this means less income for Adsense publishers.
