Apr 23, 2006 - How's your day?
This is the Adsense Forum 'Feel Good' Thread

Picking up on EFV's excellent idea (if I've understood it correctly) how's your day been (especially after maintenance last night)?

For me, Saturday was storming until the control panel went down. But then CTR had dropped when it came back up, and stayed down until about midday today BST. Now it has recovered to a more normal position at this time of day.

Actually, my "feel good factor" comes from an excel spreadsheet I produced last year that plots the average progress through a day (time on the X axis, cumulative earnings on the Y axis). I have tramlines over the graph, the bottom one for a "bad day" and the top one for a "good day" (and two sets of tramlines, one for weekdays and one for weekends).

Whenever I look at my stats, I insert the current time and earnings to reassure myself that the world hasn't come to an end. Eg:

Earnings
....................a.
...............a......
...........a.......O..
.......a.............b
.....a.........b......
....a.....b...........
...a...b..............
..a.b.................
.ab...................
a.....................

Time-->

a = good day, maximum tramline
b = bad day, minimum tramline
O = current "adsense earnings" over "time"

May want to add F for fantastic days and T for terrible days. Just a thought:)

no, you didn't understand it correctly ;)
regarding our valued chat faction, i'd recommend to leave off the date stamp in the thread title, so there is a chance that the thread is anticipated as ongoing beyond the day.
to meet the desired intention of an endless thread, there's not even a chance to imitate the "data centers watch" date format like:
"How's your day? 2006-04-23", because with mention of "day" in the title there is an unwanted automatic reference to the date stamp.

The date magically appeared after I posted, moTi. I used EFV's suggested title verbatim. I guess the mods either plan on changing the date or someone starting a new thread each bay.

If the latter, this type of thread will also meet the needs of those who compete to start regular threads. At the moment "PIP in progress" allows only one winner per month, but "how's your day" will allow one winner per day! However, the competitive nature of some will inevitably lead to them posting early and asking people how they think their day will be tomorrow :-)

Insofar as Monday 24th is concerned...PHENOMENAL so far!

I've never seen such a consistently high EPC. Sure sometimes in the mornings I may get 10-20 clicks of USD 0.50-0.80 however today I'm already 100+ clicks at this value...and this is before it even gets busy.

GO GOOGLE, GO...

Postscript: moTI, what about changing the title of the thread to: "Stats watch".

Then the date stamp can be used as you originally thought, without any confusion? It'll also assimilate the "stats stuck" threads that Optirex loves :-)

Hehehe...I haven't started one for ages since they've obviously, more or less, sorted the Urchin server problems...well, I hope so!

Do you want to know a strange thing? The more one earns with Adsense the less one notices the stats are actually stuck!

I'm not sure what this means psychologically? Is it because I am consistently earning more that I worry less about it? Is it because of these higher earnings that I "know" it will correct itself?

Has it at long last, after 2.5 years, lost the novelty factor for me and I just get on with doing what I'm supposed to be doing?

Subliminally the more you earn the more you hear the coins clinking like a slot machine in your head.

21_blue, let me compliment you on your graph--it brings back memories of the days when ASCII drawings were a popular art form. :-)

The 24th was a record high for me ($8.05), and today is even better- already at $8.92.

I know that's small potatoes for most of you guys, but you gotta start somewhere, and things keep getting better and better.

but my stats are only half finished by now. you live in australia then? hmm, starts to get a bit confusing about which day is meant. i hope we don't lose the thread so early on here..

what about changing the title of the thread to: "Stats watch"

i like your suggestion. it's a cool name for a thread.
but meanwhile i'm not sure about the temporal aspect any longer. maybe it doesn't matter if yesterday, this day so far or tomorrow is referred to? maybe it's simply all the same, just a little chat here and there, who cares :)

by the way: my earnings are way down today. wheather is too good - no one visits my sites. i think i don't continue to work today. it does not pay.

My ASCII drawing skill (ASCILL?), such as there is, was honed playing lunar lander using a dial-up printer-terminal. One adjusted the thrust to get the optimum landing speed. Ah, those were the days.

Nowadays, I use a broadband PC to adjust ad positions to get the optimum smartprice. How things have moved on, eh?

Yes, this is an excellent idea for a daily thread. A graph of the length (or views if that number were available) of the threads over time would be an interesting measure of the overall health of the system because traffic would be in inverse proportion to earnings or stat slowdowns.

I've noticed the stats stuck mostly at midday PDT--mornings are great, the afternoon when things should be cooking is flat, but by evening the numbers catch up.

Today is a good to average Monday for me so far.

Is it because of these higher earnings that I "know" it will correct itself?

I think the psychological effect has to do with what the economists call marginal utility.

As a hypothetical, say $XX./day pays the bills and gives you some walking around money. While it looks like the current reading will yield an $XX day there is no need to worry about much. As it becomes XX + y you start dreaming about what you will do with y and not worring about whether you will reach XX.

Hmmm... that suggests that all us publishers using Adsense are quiet when things are going really well, and only get noisy when things go pear-shaped.
