I have been looking to do ad sense but have discovered that earnings in the future will possibly plummet due to the advertisers cut on spending.

All have stated big drops starting 2012!
Searching forums on google for instance I have read posts relating to adsense earners being very worried about this topic.
Are there any warriors experiencing this?

    It may not be I think, everyday new advertisers are coming so they would experiment any product and if they get benefit they would continue with Adwords...

    Your biggest concern should be to increase traffic, not if the advertising rates will decreases, which you cant do anything about.

    I suggest that you should read the analytics and get information on what's happening there.

    Which keywords are most of the traffic coming from? How relevant is your content to that keyword?

    Here's a little trick for you:

    1.If you're not getting the clicks but you're getting a lot of traffic, look at the keyword that brings the most traffic. Write an article full of value that's dedicated to that keyword. Think: "If I'm searching for this keyword on google, why am I typing this?". Put yourself in the shoes of your visitors

    2. Write on top of the article in which the CTR bombs something like: If your looking for the Top 10 Ways to blah blah.. Click here

    3. Watch your earnings increase

    Hope this helps.

    It's the beginning of the year (and end of the first quarter). This happens every year.

    Also, look into adsense smartpricing.

    Ok so what I am getting from some on here is that adsense payout dropping is natural and will move in peaks and valleys depending on visitor activity and what advertisers will pay and time of year (end of quarter)?! I have taken a lot of advice from folks here and my traffic has spiked from averaging a few hundred to today being over 5000!! BUT my adsense pay has drastically dropped over the last few days. I had a few days where I was making over $10-$14 with only 1200-4000 impressions and 15-25 clicks.
    Today 5,665, 8, 0.14%, $0.41, $0.58, $3.31

    So I should do what?

    AdSense is overused. You see the same ad based on your previous Google searches. It is not niched or related to the website all the time.

    It sucks, as much as Content Marketing on Adwords sucks. (crappy traffic).

    I noticed a huge drop in Adsense earnings as well, especially on my dutch sites, thing is that the Spring just popped in and its like 18 degrees here with the sun shining all day long, and summertime just started so people don't waste their time behind the computer that much anymore.

    In my opinion I'd focus more on driving targeted traffic to your AdSense sites (however you may choose) and get that traffic to convert than worrying about advertisers running out of money to advertise.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I've been noticing a drop in earnings almost every month even though my traffic is the same or a bit higher. My Feb earnings dropped almost $500 from January even though Feb had more traffic and many of my sites had moved up the SERPs. I don't know why this is happening now. Last year I was making 3 times as much at he same time with the same sites, but only 1/3 of it this year.

      Adsense is going down ... i put adsense to one of my site and after few day i take it down and i put media.net

      Earnings from media.net is bigger then adsense

      I think Google should focus on their search engine not to make advertising with our sites.
