    This is weird, last couple of weeks I had a boost in earnings from Adsense (by about 60%), even in a day when traffic dropped to the half, now last 2 days earnings dropped by like 70%, I checked Analytics/Webmasters tools and everything looked normal (traffic, pageviews, clicks from Google...)

    Anyone had a clue why? my website is related to the gaming niche.

    So basically you are earning now the same as before your two week revenue boost?
    Maybe the boost was a targeted campaign towards your site and now its over, so things are back to normal.

    Thanks you :), a very interesting tool, yesterday and today's earnings they returned even better, it's definitely related to Halloween.

    Yes, the Google jackel lantern algorithm can be a real cunt.
