You have no revenue because you have zero clicks. Like many ad networks, Chitika pays only for valid clicks. They don't pay per impression. To get revenue, a user that sees the ad has to click on it.

Stephen Ostermiller is correct. But I would like to add this for your understanding. Clicks on ads depend highly upon the relevance of the ad to the interest of the user. This is a difficult thing to do and has little to do with your site at times but rather the ad network. I do not know Chitika, but it is their job for their advertisers to deliver ads that ...

Your click through rate lines up with CTRs that other sites experience from organic rankings (via Advanced Web Ranking): There are several reasons why the CTR for ranking #1 may only be 20-30%: While #1 position has the highest CTR of any position, positions 2+ do get a significant share of the clicks. From the above graph, it looks like they get a ...

The Google Search Console site you are looking at is specific to http. You need to also verify your new https site with the Google Search Console to see how it is performing. That drop for http is standard when you move to https. You should see the other property shows a sudden increase.


3

When moving from http to https you will see http drop and https rise until all the 301 and 410 are integrated into https (google webmaster tools treats each protocol as different sites) As how to proceed, in my experience you just add the https version as a new property, set up the redirects in your server: use 302 (found) until you are sure the urls are ...

According to Google, "Impressions - How many links to your site a user saw on Google search results, even if the link was not scrolled into view. However, if a user views only page 1 and the link is on page 2, the impression is not counted." (source)

In short, yes. But, good HTML does not automatically mean you will get more traffic, so the fact that you have not seen an increase may not have anything to do with your HTML. To your questions about HTML, some ways that bad HTML can affect your search engine indexing and traffic. Sign-up for Google Webmaster tools, go to Search Appearance, then to HTML ...

Joe, if you only can detect a drop in impressions in hits originating from Google and no decrease in hits from other sources, then you can safely assume there is no problem with your site. I'm sure you know that the Google algorithm changes frequently, and that sites are crawled and re indexed re ranked frequently. One thing that you can do that will ...

I would no bet on that! Traffic for all sites drop during certain times especially over the Christmas and New Year holidays. For example, my site traffic drops over the week end and for most major holidays. Because this time of year is shared by people of three major faiths throughout the world, I would say you are just like the rest of us. But I would try ...

Yes. But I doubt you'll notice a rapid decline for that. Don't forget that these days a lot of people take some free days, maybe go on vacation during New Years Eve, etc. I suggest you wait a week or two. Fresh content helps a lot, or updating old content with new information. This is because your site has new content, thus could be more appealing for ...

You actually have good click through rates (CTR)! Impressions can be more than one per page and people often confuse these numbers when looking at them. I look at Queries vs. Clicks. If your ratio is something like 1:1 (1 to 1) or approaching it, then you are doing rather well. A click through rate of 1% can be considered good by some. More than that, then ...

Mystery possibly solved? Google pushed out Panda 4.2 on July 18 2015, however, prior to that there was a Quality Update (also called Phantom 2) that some say is related to the Panda roll-out. Clues to hits are fluctuations as some call them tremors and spikes. Here is a quote from: http://www.thesempost.com/google-panda-update-everything-we-know-about-...

Google defines things here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7042828?hl=en So you can't really add up rows to get a true total if you are grouping by page. To add to that, Google does not report all queries. So adding up the rows will typically be a lot less than doing a request for the totals: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/...

You can and should set goals for each website. These vary widely - for an ecommerce site, obviously a purchase is one goal; for a content site, perhaps time on page is a better indicator of whether visitors are really taking the time to read content, or email signup could be a big conversion. Only you know what your goal is with each site you own. It's free ...

You can exclude site operator queries in the performance report with filters in GSC. Navigate to GSC > Performance > Queries Add new query filter Exclude queries containing "site:" You can see clicks, impressions, CTR, and average position of an individual page by adding a page filter for "URL is exactly". The results show only that page's performance ...

It seems to reflect a real pattern in user behaviour in your market. If you look at Google Trends for your search terms, you'll see similar weekly spikes. It's even early, and extended, over the US Thanksgiving weekend. Presumably you either work for this company or they're your client; you should be better placed to have some insight that would explain ...

Yes, Google Analytics can do what you want, but not alone. If the ads you're looking to track immediately leave your website, then you're going to have to use another way of tracking the user interaction. Either manually send event data to Analytics or using Google Tag Manager to log an event every time an ad is clicked (picking up on a unique class or ...

Without fully understanding of your website semantic, there can't be useful answer for this question. It is possible, that you can see potential for some of this keywords, if you try to make analysis of keyword ranking and CTR. But from impressions and click there is no useful conclusion can be made.

When you switch to https all your URLs change from http to https. Google Search Console considers that a different site, it also considers the inclusion of www makes it a different site. You need to verify that other site with the Google Search Console and look at its data.

Not found page blocked via robots.txt still gets click/impression Your graph shows 0 clicks - so it's not getting any clicks. An "impression" on the other hand is simply when this URL has appeared somewhere in the search results, regardless of whether anyone has clicked on it. So it would appear this URL is still indexed. From the Google Help docs: What ...

Under Facebook's optimize for post engagement option the pricing section should have said Your bid will be optimized to get more engagement on your page post. You'll be charged each time your advert is served. Additionally below that section there is a choice between getting the most engagement for your post at the best price which states that it will be ...

You want to deliver the impressions "as fast as possible" from under the "Adjust delivery", "Deliver impressions" drop down. "As fast as possible" delivers the impressions first (before AdSense) where as evenly will intermix them and frontloaded will show mostly your banner. Here is the Google support page about delivery speed where this is documented.

I had this scenario not so long ago, when without me knowing, redirect from HTTPS to HTTP URLs that we had for long accidentally got removed and 2/3 of our URLs got indexed with HTTPS instead of HTTP. And we had a HTTP version of the site registered with Google Search Console. So, naturally, data was dropping on our property on GSC until I figured what the ...

Search site:xyz.com in Google. Check if the your index links are still the same in numbers or not. Probably your index links are removed by Goolge. If not make sure your page rankings and backlinks are not ceased. If you have recently added low quality external links to your sites remove it and crawl the pages again.

dont use this information in Google Webmaster Tools. It isn't going to give you accurate numbers. Just use it as an indication of what Google finds you relevant for. To answer your question, think of this as resource management. They aren't going to report the long tail of keywords that they measure at 1 impression.

This data comes from Google Webmaster Tools. I see the same problem when I view the data through Google Analytics: Nothing is reported having fewer than five impressions. When I look at the data in Google Webmaster Tools directly, I do see items with fewer than five impressions or clicks: When I look at the "same" data in Google Analytics, I see that ...

This thread on WebmasterWorld keeps track of day to day changes in the Google SERPs. There are several reports of a "Panda algorithm data refresh" around that time, especially around sites targeting the UK. It seems very unfortunate that you would be hit by Panda a month after making changes to try to make your site higher quality. It is unclear how much ...

If you're looking for complete Apache referer_log analysis, you will have to use your tools rather than what Google provides you. I think they are trying to provide you a distilled version of referrals which will provide a good but incomplete picture. The answer to your question is in a blog post from Google: The relevant passage is: we're showing a "...

Google Analytics has a cost data upload feature that is designed so that you can have cost and impression data for your campaigns in Google Analytics. The input must be in a properly formatted CSV file with at least the following columns (there are also optional columns listed): ga:source (matching the campaign source (utm_source)) ga:medium (matching the ...
