Money Per Click At A Lower Rate Today?
Clicks don't appear to be paying out the same

 7:48 pm on May 27, 2005 (gmt 0)

It may be me, (and I know I see a thread like this pop up from time to time), but on my laser eye surgery webpages, (which should create a reasonable return per click and usually does), I've had particularly low returns per click.

For example, one page so far today has had 5 clicks on it - and that has returned a total significantly less than what it usually does.

Anyone else noticed anything "odd" - or am I just as paranoid as the other people who post who about "lost earnings due to low click return"?

It's all speculation, but could it be that the major advertisers have paused their on-line campaigns since more people will be on this highway than on the internet this weekend. That's would leave Mom & Pop in a better position to be seen.

I've been getting low rates the past 2 days (Today & Yesterday). It's in fact almost 50% lower! with the same amount of impressions....

Keep in mind that here in the USA it is Memorial Day Weekend. Many folks will be travelling, or at least doing things thatdraw them away from the computer.

My guess is that some advertizers take this into account and cut back on bids, if not cancel there ad runs for the weekend.

We just now came back into town from a shopping trip out on the edges of the metroplex and the outbound freeway was about as full and slow as it could get. Of course here in Minnesota, that means folks were heading for the lake cabin and a weekend of fishing, water sports etc.

It's a Friday before a long-weekend in the U.S.

I am guessing the advertisers have headed out to the cottage already.

BTW, my earnings are down 50% today so far

Good - I mean - "Good that someone agrees with me" - I thought I was going mad!

Yes - my tale-off in Ad revenue return started to happen from last night......

I am getting lower CTRs today too.


 8:22 pm on May 27, 2005 (gmt 0)

CTR would be something on your part; not Google. We're talking about CPC or CPM

That's interesting about the "long weekend" principal.

(Not that this applies to me, but..) What about websites whose content is very much geographically orientated, i.e. whose ads would produce the "best" revenue ads for the country they were designed, (regardless of the fact that diferent ads would appear on that web page when viewed in another part of the world)?

Although US advertisers may take up the bulk of advertising - this "long weekend" principal may not apply?

ShunT, my CTR is up again, picking up the speed, currently my CTR is at 13% for today.

Made around $50.

hi guys, i am also getting a low CTR this friday ( to-day), which is compartively less than previous fridays.


 3:20 am on May 28, 2005 (gmt 0)

I'm seeing the highest CTR of the month today. But I've been putting Ad Links on big traffic pages, so that's probably why.


 7:26 am on May 28, 2005 (gmt 0)

Yes - I did see another thread about Adlinks.

I tried Adlinks on Day One when they first came out - above the fold, in a nice prominent position - and didn't have any impact whatsoever - I may revisit them again.

Anyway, clicks did improve by the end of yesterday, although the overall revenue was still below average. We'll see whwt the rest of the weekend brings.

(It's also a Bank Holiday weekend - Monday - here in the UK, so the whole Adsense scene may be completely dire! ;) )


 7:44 am on May 28, 2005 (gmt 0)

2and 1/2 hours into today and only 12 impressions, no clicks...this is unreal.


 8:05 am on May 28, 2005 (gmt 0)

(as above......)

It's probably going to remain "bad" all weekend Ann. According to other Adsense gurus I've talked to recently over the last few hours, this is not unusual for a weekend - and even more commonplace for the USA Memorial Weekend and a UK Bank Holiday Weekend combined.

I'm guessing it'll start to pick up again next Monday/Tuesday.

I'm glad I didn't Give Up My Day Job For Adsense quite yet ;)
