Google AdSense Earnings Fluctuations Not Related to Algorithm Update
August 07, 2018 / Matt Southern
Google has confirmed that any fluctuations in AdSense earnings over the past several days is not related to the recent search algorithm update. This information was provided by Google’s Danny Sullivan in response to a site owner asking if the algorithm update also affects AdSense. The site owner was concerned about fluctuations in AdSense revenue following the latest core algorithm update, as well as fluctuations in page views and a reduction in click-through rate. According to Sullivan, the core algorithm update and AdSense have nothing to do with each other. While that statement is technically accurate, one must also consider how an algorithm update may end up affecting AdSense earnings indirectly. Or any other type of on-page monetization, for that matter. If the algorithm update negatively impacted a website, it’s only logical that a site receiving less traffic would end up earning less revenue from display ads.
