    Am I crazy? Ever since I changed my Google ads to responsive beta "type" my Adsense money has dropped significantly. Anyone else?

    Again - another day of lost revenues, wondering if i should change my ads back to the old responsive code...

    I am seeing the opposite. Doing really well with the new responsive beta ads.

    Which sizes and ad locations are you using BamaStangGuy? It looks like your website is down.

    Perhaps the advertisers I normally see (cat stuff/ I have a cat site) aren't big fans of the responsive design? All ads are non subject related to my site I am seeing after the change.

    It's also after Jan 1. Campaigns typically run out on Dec 31 and don't really pick back up until Feb and Mar. January has never been a strong month for us from an ad revenue perspective.

    Just for reference, today we've only made 55% of the revenue for the month that we made by this time in December. We made 25% less yesterday (Jan 7) than we did the previous Tuesday.

    And I have made no changes to the ads we're serving.

    Was just going to mention this. @tommydamic68 when did this decrease happen? My January daily average is a 3rd of what my December daily average was. It literally happened on Jan 1st.

    I could see this being a combination of the changing to responsive ads and it being the first of the year. I'd suggest sticking it out for a month or two to see if it comes back.

    I'm getting killed with the responsive adsense ad's myself. Revenue is down 50% since changing over to xenforo from vbulletin. This is brutal.

    I've given up on adsense altogether. The glory days are gone.

    Using Google DFP to have other networks compete with Adsense is really the only way to go now.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what is Google DFP? You can p.m me if this is getting off topic....

    I wrote a guide on integrating DFP into xf.

    Does DfP offer responsive Adsense inventory fall-back yet?

    If you view my guide, you can see how I have it set up. It's not a dynamic responsive use, as it is unlikely that a user will be resizing the page after they load it so it is based on their browser width and will display the size ad I have designated for that size.
