Hi all, Auto Ads continues to be dismal on my site. I have all the options on except 'text and image' ads. Which means mobile views are the only place ads are showing. I'm getting the bottom banner and the interstitial (between page views) but no clicks.
Pretty sure I know why my bounce rate went up so fast. Blame it on SBI servers being really, really slow. Have you noticed it takes SBI around 20 minutes to propagate new pages? It is that way for me anyhow. Seems it is the same for XML-It as well.
Most of my traffic comes in through my blog. So, when I ping my RSS feeds (XML-It) too soon, the RSS feeds don't see any changes, so they don't update my feeds.
Yesterday for instance I blogged about a new project and went off to have lunch. Being Saturday that was the end of my workday. Today I noticed my feeds weren't showing the new blog. Consequently pageviews were down and bounce rate is still way up there.
Getting back on track here. I think my site just isn't conducive to getting AdSense clicks. 99% of my revenue from AdSense actually comes from AdMob, which is the mobile version of AdSense. Example last month I had 886 pageviews on Adsense 'Responsive' ad type. I got 0 clicks. Meanwhile AdMob reports 8.55k impressions with 63 clicks. Now I'm thinking about redesigning my site just for AdSense. To me that seems really dumb.
It doesn't make sense. I had over 60k pageviews on my site last month but only 886 pageviews with AdSense showing. I use 'Responsive ads' extensively and expected to see several thousands of pageviews. Don't know why that is. Any ideas would be appreciated.
