    The earnings are just estimates and sometimes Youtube gets them completely wrong. A few weeks ago some of the users in my MCN contacted me thinking they were earning very low amounts (>75% decrease). After a week or so the estimated earnings updated and they were looking normal again. I would say wait until you actually get paid and see if the earnings are higher than the estimated ones.

    You will have to wait until 2 months after to truly know the payments. It is possible that for your niche the ad inventory was selling for a higher rate in June and then the spending stopped in July.. This is why joining a network might be a good idea for you as the ad buys are more consistent. If you want PM me your channel URL and I can take a look for you and check the bid prices, otherwise I would contact adsense support.

    Dont worry about the drop. Summer months tend to have less advertising money. What you need to do is continue and push forward and let the summer months happen and at fall time, when everyone is done their summer vacations, kids are back to school, parents are back to work, facebook and youtube traffic will rise, so will ad revenue. I dropped 40% this summer in revenue and its expected.

    People use adblock, your add does not get shown = no money for you

    It is a very popular plugin now and its seriously effecting youtube! So much so rumours are google are going to pay the people at adblock to stop blocking some adverts.

    Even my parents have it on their PC and they did that themselves... they are 60.

    Maybe the ads popping up just weren't as appealing?

    IO have had the same problem starting June. I have channel were I mainly put gameplay videos of various games. Like walkthrough and stuff. And since June/July my earnings dropped by like 50-60% and my CPM went down to 2-3$ while it was 7-12$. So I am also really confused to what is happened in the last two months that the earnings are dropping at this rate.

    And someone hear said that its summer and stuff but from which month can we expect a rise in earnings? After august or when?

    September onwards is usually much better, but in November/December you should see a HUGE rise in revenue as companies are spending more money on ads in time for christmas. After christmas there will be a huge drop for 2-3 months and then it will start to pick back up again.

    i dont understand why one of my videos has gone from earning 70+ in one month to $1 the next month this oviously had a big effect on my total earnings. but this video is still monetised with no problems?

    I don't think you realize that Adblock has come across your videos. You really think people are going to site through your video and watch the advertisements and click on interesting things? LMAO! That shit is made up by Google to get more investors. Top dog Youtubers are complaining about Adblock as well calling it unfair and blind robbery. Some cases are recorded that users turn off Adblock to support their favorite Youtuber because of their content. Combine this with low CPM months and you dig a grave making content for Youtube. Based on what you keep providing for information, your suffering mainly from lower paying advertisements and Adblock. I suggest you have people watch your videos and leave comments about whether they are worth sitting through a crap infested 30 second commercial to watch or not. Improve your content and watch your earnings go up or simply switch to PPD or subscription based models from 3rd party advertisers.

    This is totally untrue. Please link me to these top dog youtubers complaining about adblock? They make so much money from adsense it barely affects them. I have ran ad campaigns on Youtube for numerous channels and they have all done pretty well, so there are obviously people watching/clicking the adverts. If adblock had such a big influence on a partners earnings then you would see all the big Youtubers complaining about it. The only problem is a lot of the ad campaigns aren't targetted correctly eg. people end up having to watch ads about dental products when they are watching a gaming video.

    The best thing to do is stop worrying about how many of your views are monetized at the moment and instead try and focus on how you can get more views. The money will come later. In the OP's case there is obviously something wrong with his adsense reporting (unless you have been buying views?), and in 2 months time when he gets paid his earnings will probably be corrected.
