Choosing to withhold AdSense earnings? Are there Benefits?
There are conflicting reports of some Google AdSense earners claiming their Cost Per Clock (CPC) increases by choosing to withhold payments at higher dollar thresholds. Additionally, reports of receiving more clicks from better serving ads from advertisers by choosing to withhold earnings.
There is no evidence to really support these theories. We pushed our payment threshold to higher dollar amount in the beginning of this year and we are coming onto our 6th month of Google AdSense withhold payments. Coincidently, we noticed our last 2-3 months of AdSense earnings increase dramatically from a + %65 and + %58 months in AdSense revenue earnings. Our AdSense account lifespan never say such a dramatic increase in earnings in this time span. The properties we saw the earnings increase was evenly divided. It is important to note there was no increase or decrease in monetized traffic to these properties.
These observations are worth noting but probably more of a coincidence than anything else. Additionally, we don’t consider our Google AdSense account a top earner and in such case we believe Google isn’t giving us any special attention.
