Hi,

Is there any evidence that Google places people in earnings categories for Adsense?

On my way up, I seemed to notice 'resistance' at $5, $10 and $15 a day. I got to $30 and I really felt like it was 'chocks away!'.

Then Google started messing with its algorythms and I'm stuck under a glass ceiling gain or it feels like it.

    The more targeted traffic you get the more potential you have to earn. There is no limit. Just get more traffic. There is tons of proof that others are making much more than that per day. Its not my cup of tea but I understand why people do adsense.

      I am not suggesting that there is an ultimate limit.

      I am suggesting that Google puts temporary limits on an account's earnings.

      For example, if I had an affiliate selling my goods and one day I woke up to find that his sales had rocketed from an av of $5 a day to $500, I would be suspicious and check to see that the sales (or clicks) were legitimate before paying out.

      Having glass ceilings would provide triggers to check patterns of unusual behaviour.

        Believe it or not, yes.

        And there are no glass ceilings in the Google Adsense program, except in your own imagination.

          Maybe, but I'm not convinced.

            If there are any limits imposed by Google they have not been made public.

            It is not that such things are impossible. However, Google is a publicly traded company and is subject to some degree of oversight.

            And if they were found to be doing things that were a violation of their stated policy it would have legal and public relations ramifications.

            This is how Google says it works: "AdSense for content publishers, who make up the vast majority of our AdSense publishers, earn a 68% revenue share worldwide. This means we pay 68% of the revenue that we collect from advertisers for AdSense for content ads that appear on your sites."

            It is hard to imagine that they would operate differently from this when there is so little for them to gain and so much to lose.

              yes, I take your point, but it does not have to be illegal. Once a ceiling is being approached they could switch you over to very low-paying ads or public service announcements and you might never know.
