    Im not in a good mood, i mean this site that i have used to give me 1-2 dollars a day which was ok, but now it gives me maximum 0.5 euro .

    Clicks and visits stayed the same and im sure its smart pricing cause thats the only explanation to this low cost clicks.

    I used the competitive ad filter to block some low cost click websites , that helped but not much. What to do here? :confused:

    I guess the price is defined by who wants to advertise on your site.

    Have you tried alternative approach - optimise your ad placements and increase ctr?

    Hi, like davids355 said try optimising your ad placements to increase your ctr and concentrate your efforts in getting more traffic to your site to compensate the decrease of cpc.

    Smart Pricing is one of those elfin magic things that Google does and refuses to disclose the details of to their customers, their partners, and the public.

    Here's what we think we know:

    It's based upon the RoI received by the advertisers (How in the heck is that calculated?)
    It's recalibrated once a week

    Two weeks ago I was seeing eCPM's higher than I had seen in years. This last week was the exact opposite. I saw a 40% eCPM drop overnight with no change in CTR.

    I deactivated those domains and deleted all files from hosting, now im only on "good" websites . And only on them i have adsense ads.



    So actually you cant fix smart pricing , but just deal with it ?
