    I had a video up that for over a year made between $4 and $20 a day. it has dwindled and dwindled to where this month it has made 1 cent on over 8k views. what could have happened and is there an adjustment i can make to fix it? i have included a couple analytics pages if it helps

    Adblock has affected earnings a lot, especially computer related niches.

    Maybe you have too much competitors in this niche.

    it isnt a computer related niche. it's basically just a top 10 list kind of thing. and i have multiple channels and they all still make decent money comparatively. and even if it is competitive, isnt that good? i mean i have the views. basically, i would expect to at least make $1 per 1000 views. its really this entire channel that has died. all my other channels are doing about the same.

    it has 655k views and has made $1372 during its lifetime. now nothing

    I have a few channels that get a fair amount of views. One video has 700k views and around $2000 lifetime earnings that also basically died $1-2 a day now. When a video still get high views but no one is watching the ads link in the description to sales page. They can drive a lot of traffic to a well written page on the topic with some affiliate links.

    Everyone hits that view cap, and its not really explained why it is. If you still have ads that are relevant on that video, see if people are skipping them or not. You'll need to analyze piece by piece until you find the problem and try to fix it. Th quick fix is already suggested above, use some osrt of conversion where you get paid until you can fix the ads.

    Maybe Gooogle's DoubleClick changed their algorithm or advertisers changed settings. It's like a CPA network not PPC like in Adwords.

    Go with another ad network. They will definitely pay you for these views by putting their own ads. This will surely fix the situation. :)
    Let me know what you think about this.
