Adsense for Search revenue is zero since Aug 1, why?
1
Starting July 28th our Adsense for Search revenue started declining significantly. Then on Aug 1 it dropped to zero and has stayed there. What would cause this? We still see ads when using our Google Custom Search Engine.

Hi,

Can you please let me know whether you are using the "adclient" parameter in your search engine HTML, and whether you have linked their Adsense account to their search engine in the control panel.

Thanks

Hey Deepak, 
This is our site: https://refdesk.com/
This is an example of the search result when you search for 'computer' on the site. The search bar is on the left rail toward the top.

I am not sure, I will find out. But we have been generating revenue through Adsense search for many years, then all of a sudden as of Aug 1 it stopped. Nothing was changed on the site.

Thanks for that. We have updated the search so it is not hosted. If you do a search on www.refdesk.com (left rail) you will see that we are not using the hosted results any more. However, no search ads are being displayed now.

Hi,

Accessed your site "https://www.refdesk.com/" and looked into the source code and found you are still using the deprecated PSE implementation code.

Please update you PSE implementation code. Please review the different layouts. Select a layout as per your need from control panel > Look and Feel > Layout section. Click on Get Code and implement the same on your website.

Please review the documents below for guidance:

Thanks
