Yes they do seem a little slow today. First thing they were painfully slow....
I must stop watching................
Holiday weekend. People leaving work early to start their travel. It's vacation time, baby!
We are having a low day altogether. I am wondering if it could be just because it is Labor Day weekend. That and the end of the month could be affecting stats.
I see a bunch of net congestion in the last 2 hours.
Had a super low day yesterday too, and it just added a click now, to yesterdays stats. Todays imps are so and so, but clicks are down 70% or more.
I believe there is some lag and perhaps some backlog of click checking happening.
What really irks me is that they'd never admit if they really lost stats, cos it'd cause a riot.
Impressions a little low, but clicks very, very low. :(
Mine are low too.. I think for me it's because of an increased presence of PSAs on my site.
Anyone else notice pages formerly serving ads that now serve only PSAs?
Also, month end approaches.
Wonder if budgets are expiring - seem to recall something similar last month.
Same here, CTR about half of what it normally is. Impressions down, too. Probably due to the holiday weekend.
Sorry to break the pattern, but my CTR is the same today as it was yesterday and the day before. But I agree that for those who have a low CTR, it's likely due to the holiday. Don't expect it to get better until Tuesday.
I'm not sure I buy the argument that advertisers budgets are "drying" out because it is the end of the month. I haven't changed a thing on my site (in terms of ad size, type, location, colour) and I have been seeing over the past week the same number of impressions, but my EPC is up almost 40% AND my revenue. So, what gives? :)
My CTR is way up today, after being low yesterday.
Good impressions, CTR's and EPC's today. Better than last Friday. Fri/Sat/Sun are always a little slower than the rest of the week.
I've also noticed EPC's not dropping significantly towards the end of the month. Good news!
Our impressions are absolutely average. Our click-through is nearly 50% lower than normal.
This can't be attributed to a slowdown or the holiday weekend, since people are going to the sites. They're just not clicking on ads.
Traffic normal, CTR normal....I was expecting a bad day and weekend....but it looks at this point in time as business as usual :)
Bet I won't be saying that on Monday night:(
My impressions are way up on last week, but my number of clicks is about the same (so my ctr is lower) but i figure this is because I have picked up a bunch of non-relevant traffic from somewhere rather than anything else.
