For those of you who run forum ads, I'm curious if COVID-19 hurt your ad revenue at all?

Is the revenue getting better now that the pandemic isn't as "uncontrolled" as it once was?
Before Covid, I was earning 20 cents per click on average on my adsense ads, I was making $20 per day on average. However, after covid, my adsense revenue has substantially dropped. My average earning per click is around 7 cents.
I never put ads up until after COVID on my blog.

I only put it up because I hit a certain amount of avg monthly views.

So, I'm not sure. But I'm sure I'd had took a hit.
