poll: adsense earnings 0709Every now and then we reach out to our Google AdSense publisher readership and poll them on how their earnings are doing month to month. Recently, I have been hearing buzz around the community that earnings are down, so I decided to run an anonymous poll asking if that was true.

56% of the responses said their earnings were down, while only 25% said their earnings were up and 20% said earnings were about the same. Here are the results:

Question: July 2009 AdSense Earnings: Up Or Down?

:: Way Down said 36 respondents or 35% :: Down said 21 respondents or 21% :: No Real Change said 20 respondents or 20% :: Up said 18 respondents or 18% :: Way Up said 7 respondents or 7%

I hope you are on the up side of this poll.

My earning seems to on their way to match up last month's earnings. I notice that CPC for most of time is now $0.01, something I thought won't happen again.

Great idea to poll...the results I think provide more illustration of the benefits organic search/SEO has over things like AdSense and PPC. If people are looking to make an impact online, they need to consider things more long-term rather than going after the quick buck

Great topic to poll...I think the results provide more ammo to the argument of SEO and organic search over PPC. People need to think long-term if they're looking to make an impact online. Content and SEO will bring far more benefits in the long-term than simply going after the quick buck
