Searched for the last topic on this, I wanted to try and maintain the same format
1st - 8th - Same as Average
9th - 17th - 50% higher than average
18th - 21st - 100% of average
Average means the Adsense revenues of the last 3 months

August has been the month that began with a whimper and is going out with a howl for me, too.
Aug 1-10 30% below average
Aug 11-now 40% above average
Having my best day (possibly ever) today. Unless it dries up tonight, should be a new record. Days like this keep me motivated to get the drudge work done. GO GOOGLE!

complete opposite for me..highest days ever 1-10 about average after that.
it all levels out in the end!

Is this perhaps attributed to "Back To School" advertising budgets?

Last month was a good month, especially the last week or so. This month continued on, then the bottom started to droop, then fell out completely just before the weekend.
With fewer visitors, lower CTR and lower EPC. Just across the board worse stats. If I had any hair left, I might be pulling it out.
I'm hoping for a resurgence as folks get back to work and school over the next few weeks. Hope springs eternal.
On another note, I am seeing a number of 2cent clicks. Last week I saw a 1 cent click. 1 Cent! It just so happens that particular page is in my URL tracking and I have tracking software installed on the page. It usually gets 3 or 4 clicks in the 60-80-100 cent range. This was not a CPM ad. This was a click.
Immediately I suspected that the click was from a foreign (non-US) country, and a trace of the IP addy confirmed this. The url the visitor went to is one of the biggest names in the niche, and is a regular payer of the 60 and 80 cent clicks.
I really want the ability to set a minimum acceptable payout for my site. If G doesn't have the inventory, then show my alternate URL or my background color. I can continue to guide my visitors to pages that may better suit their needs, and land them on a page with a higher CPC, or convert them myself into an opt-in list or other affiliate sale.
If AdSense can't give publishers minimum bid ability, I'm afraid that I'll have to look elsewhere for my measly 8 million yearly impressions, even if the payout is somewhat lower. Nothing drives me up a wall more than seeing a visitor of mine leave for such a pittance.

August has been outstanding for me. It will easily be my best month yet.
Why? I wish I could say for sure.
In May and June I installed Adlinks on most of my pages (thanks for the motivation Incredibill and others). Income took an immediate and very noticible upward jump.
In late July I turned on image ads to allow CPM ads to run on my site. I haven't see much of this in real time, but I suspect there have been some, it's just hard to tell. But my income went up.
Now in August the Adwords pricing system has been changed, and my income went up again, a lot.
On top of that, my traffic has been increasing nicely.
So for whatever reason, this has been a very good month so far. I'm hoping it holds because, well, I like the money :)

Slowly its rising :-)

Saturday: Best Adsense Day ever
Monday: Worst Day ever (50% of average)
Tuesday: New Best Day ever
I give up trying to figure this stuff out.

August Is awesome

The first couple of weeks on my site were very much a continuation of July, which was a great month. Some drop-off since then.
I went back to look at August 2004. I was earning much less overall then, but there was a decline then too in the second half of the month, about 20% down from the first half.
For my site--and as is already obvious, it's going to vary greatly depending on site demographics--I don't expect things to pick up until the 2nd week of September.

Whole August is my record high in AdSense (all time). Especially last 5 days.
Thank you Google!

This month is looking to bring me twice the earnings last month did and last month was a record month. My chart looks like the NASDAQ circa 1999.
