    Has anyone else had a dramatic drop in revenues in the last 2wks on Sedo parking?

    I'm looking at my statistics now and my views have been constant over the last 2/3 months, if anything I have had an increase since new domains added.

    But the avg number of clicks has hs dropped in the last month from avg 20 a day to about 10. and of course revenue has dropped accordingly.

    I can’t for the life of me think why this would happen? Has Sedo tightened what it calls clicks from non quality sources? All I can imagine is that they have restricted the possibilities of click sources?

    Do they refund the companies who pay for the advertiser or google??

    Apparently this sudden drop is across a lot of PPC systems and is related to adsense. I hope it recovers - with no sales the sedo income has to cover my overheads - suddenly my planned break even point has moved years ahead!

    begining of a new month with sedo which normally means a new round of possible income - PPC seem to be a lot higher at the begining.

    What i was wondering - its now october but my sedo control panel is still reading september - anyone else got this?

    Its seems they have been having real problems at sedo for the last month??

    I was getting messages all day yesterday saying their server was down for maintenance.

    Mine says "revenue in October.." but is actually showing Sept figures.

    Strange - had one of my better days recently (nothing compared to last month)

    Obviously the maintenance is urgently needed work and not sorted all the problems out yet.
