Default Admob - sudden drop

I don'0t know if I am the only one but Admob
is giving me a lot of headache last days.

First, my apps were never transferred to the new admob so I have old Admob showing 7 apps while new one has only 1..
Has anyone has noticed similar in his account?

Second, in past two days my app installs, and profit (all realted to very low eCPM) drop about 5 times.
My eCPM from from 5$ (I know it was very high already) to 0,5$

I see many of you have some kind of problems with Admob but has anyone find solutions for them ?

Seeing the same thing on my end. A massive drop from at least $5 per day to now doing around $0.15 per day. This started on May 6th 2014, no idea what's going on.

Hmm? I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary, but if apps are disappearing from your dashboard, try using the contact form at the upgrade guide. I'd link it here if I could, but XDA's spam filter kills my links to Google support.
  1. Google for the keywords: "admob upgrade guide", the link you need is on support dot google dot com, answer id 3077517
  2. Ctrl-F for Troubleshoot upgrade issue
  3. Click a few answers, then you'll get a link with the text: "Please complete this form and provide details regarding the upgrade issues you're experiencing."

Good luck. Google is kinda hard to contact but they do reply when you fill in a form properly.

Did you see the same drop in other AdNetworks as well?

You should keep an eye on how well your ads network are doing.
Some might do better for you than others.

This can be done manually or using AdBoost that shows you comparative performance graphs.
Just google revenue adboost, second result.
That piece of art is what we're working on in my working place

Have you upgraded to new Admob? New admob gives better income. My admob earnings increase a bit after upgraded.

It is safe to put admob in a new app if there are such problem with it?
