    I just installed the Adsense app honestly it is a lot easier to use and better than the actual website . Eveyday I have about 50 - 130 clicks . Though in the cost per click ( CPC ) cattgory of Adsense it says I only get payed 0.04 CANADIAN cents which is probably like 0.03 USD . No wonder youtube I am only making 100 - 250$ a month from youtube . Back when I had a webiste I used to get like 2$ per click .

    What is your CPC ?

    It could be due to

    1) Same users/viewers returning to the videos
    2)The niche you're in isn't a high paying niche on average
    3)The videos+ad combination isn't targeted

    In most cases #3 is the culprit

    So you are basically telling me to go to the adsense website and turn off all ad cattegories not related to my niche ?

    Last month I am having really low ctr and cpc on adsense, I dont know why.

    I think its since they changed the rules to not allow ads on top

    In this case, I will recommend you to reduce the ad blocks number (choose the best location that bring you the most number of clicks and keep the ONLY one).
    The reason for low CPC could be:
    - Your own keywords / lack of advertisers
    - Too many ads blocks in the same pages, so people may click on low CPC ads. Less number of ad blocks mean the highest rate ads will be shown first for people to click
    Just my 2 cents

    I am talking about youtube videos, not a website . I mentioned my website in the first post just for comparecent. I had a website 10 years ago and was making 100$ a day with 30 - 60 clicks , also using adsense but as of right now I am ONLY Talking about youtube videos.
