It was my biggest in terms of clicks but nowhere near by biggest in terms of $. My clicks have been steadily increasing (along with traffic) but my CPM has been decreasing. Working harder for less money.
Hopefully it will turn around.
sunzfanz, there are so many webmasters from so many industries on this board, thus i don't think it realistic to expect that a blip on one radar means a blip on all others.
christmas shopping could be starting up so people with christmas-related sites may increase growth at this time ... conversely there is no hockey season right now so maybe it might be fair to expect that those with hockey-related sites are seeing a decline.
i'm just saying ... you may want to state your industry if you expect serious feedback since there are hundreds of industry webmasters that use adsense.
The 15th wasnt very good for me, but the 14th was.
for me there was big drop in epc on nov 12. actually it got halved. it was steady for all october and part of november ... let's say it was X, since 12th it is X/2 and not changing ... apparently it must have been some smart pricing related site revaluation ...
Well something weird happened on my account. Until around 10 pm pacific it was a slightly lower than average day, and then over the next hour the revenue doubled with only a few more clicks. Maybe some poor advertiser shifted a decimal to the right without realizing it..
We also had our biggest day ever yesterday in terms of revenues -- and hopefully it will continue :o)
Yesterday was a good day for us as well, infact we have seen a steady increase over the past 3 days.
Can't complaign about that.
Well - enjoy it while it lasts. Next week is Thanksgiving week, so those with heavy US traffic can expect significant declines. Oh, I hate what holidays do to my Adsense income!

I'm expecting my heaviest traffic during the coming week due to Thanksgiving, and again in December. Traffic to one of my sites normally skyrockets during this time of year. That doesn't mean that anything else will go up at all, but I can hope.
Best day so far was back on the 5th.
Yesterday was best day ever. Largest CTR with average traffic. It looks that today will be even better.
Its wierd even though I have less visitors on the weekends my earnings are higher, the same goes on Holidays.
So bring on Thanksgiving I am ready for it. :)
Last week has been a waste of time.
I wasn't "expecting" everyone to have the best day ever, just simply comparing to see if for some reason it was for others.
Additionally, i have seen major increase the days prior as well...and grateful for it. In regards to T-Giving, i would expect it to be a big traffic (maybe not on the day, but the weekend). Is that a wrong assumption? Is it just brick and mortar that benefits from day after T-giving?
I think you are trying to see if there is a change in their system to explain the sudden surge.
It was a typical day for me, so this is likely good news, since most of the other replies seem to say there is no change at google as well.
Good news for you because it may mean you are being targeted better, or you are getting more traffic.
|Is it just brick and mortar that benefits from day after T-giving? |
In my case given that I do not have a shopping or holiday-themed site, my traffic goes down because my visitors are busy eating on Thursday, busy shopping on Friday, and busy traveling back to where they came from on Saturdays and Sundays. My visitors are just not in front of their computers on holidays (sigh!)
Pick anyday, there will be someone having the biggest day ever while some others with the worst day ever. I will bet you on that.
I had a huge deal of clicks the 14th and yesterday, the 16th, but the 15th was a normal day.
"Pick anyday, there will be someone having the biggest day ever while some others with the worst day ever. I will bet you on that."
ANY day? I bet you'd take that back :) not that there's any way to prove it.
well it is a statistical likelihood that on ANY day, 30% of people have a "bad" day, 30% have a "good" day and the other 40% have an "average" day. (percentages will change depending on your definition of each category)
so anyone starting a "wow, was yesterday a good day for you?" thread will get enough of the 30% good-dayers agreeing and people suddenly think a pattern has been spotted.
and so on....
sorry to be a misery but these threads follow very closely behind the "OMG...has everyone's earnings fallen by 4% since yesterday?" as Most Hated Threads on WebmasterWorld.
I'll get my coat!
