Yeah, right now (2:30 pm 7/10), it shows the CTR for the 8th was 1/3 to 1/2 that of the earlier days of July.
However, my earnings on the 7th were the highest for one day since I joined back in Oct. My 2nd highest ever was the 6th, 3rd highest is July 5.
If that's the new pattern, 3 days of record earnings followed by 1 below average day, sign me up!
Or even more dramatic, so far in July I've already made almost as much (within cents, literally) as all of June, & June was my best full month ever. If that rate continues July will triple June's earnings.
What I think is happening on the reports is the earnings are taking longer to show up. So I bet right now some of the earnings for the 8th aren't included in the totals. I'm thinking the numbers aren't final for 3-4 days.
This definitely disproves the theory that earnings & CTR are down across the board. And yes, I've been adding pages to my site, but no new ones have been indexed recently.
