    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.

    Is it the same content? Could be getting saturated.

    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.
