Yes, definitely, less impressions, less clicks.

Nope- up a bit higher than average.

But of course, we all know not to worry about mid-day stats. :)

My CTR is way down last few days, but I have noticed someone or something from "Limelight Networks" going thru lots of pages.

Anyone know what "Limelight Networks" is? Traces back to Tempe, Arizona for me.

Yeah, CTR and earnings way down today so far. Certainly hoping for some kind of 'click dump'.

Just another typical day for me, too, although I certainly would appreciate a click dump, anyway :)

It's down for maintenance, so let's wait for the click dump when it comes back :)

Just a normal shaky Google day, half of the AdSense features are working in a unstable way.

Filter list changes takes forever to have any effect.

i am getting a "temporarily unavailable" message too, but its on the main adsense page, before logging in... don't we normally get the maintenance message after trying to login?

elsewhen, No, it is usually in place of the login page. So this is the usual down for maintenance message

Still not up for me. If I can't check my stats every five minutes, I'm gonna start going through withdrawals. :) J/K

I saw a extreamily low Ecpm and CTR yesterday.There was no click dump as I hoped. I hope this rights itself today...

The sky is still falling.

eCPM down the drain here too!

Caught a ton of fleas (parked domains) all leading to meanwhile.com parked pages
(We do mention godaddy here so I think mentioning meanwhile.com is no different)

Why the hell is this sudden outburst of fleas?

Both Analytics and Adsense under-reported our traffic yesterday, as confirmed by our server stats package. Not expecting a click dump or traffic dump to make it up.

Analytics (and similar programs) and AdSense work differently than server-based traffic analyzers do. For example, they don't count bot hits as page views or unique visitors, and users who have disabled JavaScript won't have their page views/impressions counted.

For that matter, different server-based traffic analyzers often give different numbers. In the past, I used Sawmill and Mach5 Analyzer at the same time, and the reported numbers were never identical.

And if I were an idiot, I wouldn't know that, but obviously I'm comparing apples to apples as I always do.

I'm not going to get into any produce comparisons, but I will say that the discrepancy between my server page-view numbers and AdSense impressions has been greater than usual.

In the last two days, page views have been way up according to my log-analysis software, and server bandwidth usage has been up about 60%. At first, I thought somebody might be sucking up a lot of bandwith with inline image linking from a popular forum, but my logfile analyzer shows no evidence of that. The increase in PVs appears to be across a large number of pages and search terms: mostly the usual suspects, but more traffic for each.

AdSense, on the other hand, is showing normal numbers, which leads me to wonder if impressions (not earnings per se) get capped, at least temporarily, when spikes or sudden increases occur.

europeforvisitors : exactly same thing happend to me for the last 2 days, but today seems to be normal, i think google has verfied our sites, usually they do it in jan . may be the reason

Well let's hope that verification thingy stays.... I suddenly had today 25% more, continuing the expected trend that it kinda headed towards a couple of weeks ago. My ecpm kinda increased by 40% although CTR stayed within limits..

Maybe a counter regression tactic. Makes less people participate.

EFV,

AdSense, on the other hand, is showing normal numbers, which leads me to wonder if impressions (not earnings per se) get capped, at least temporarily, when spikes or sudden increases occur.

Personally, I think the phenomenon you are experiencing is caused just by supply and demand, which would be the logical cause. Alas much more logical than "capping" impressions. Maybe your niche was running short of ads?

Buy hey, anyone who is not satisfied with the way Google reports the numbers should seriously consider to leave the program. After all, we all know that Google can't do wrong. ;-)

Zett, I'm not disputing Google's reporting of the numbers. Page views aren't the same as AdSense impressions, after all: some come from bots, some come from users who have JavaScript come off, and some probably come from countries that get few (if any) AdSense ads. For all I know, I might have had an unusually large Elbonian audience for the last two days. :-)

As for the question of whether Google caps or otherwise controls allocation of ads to spread a given advertiser's ads around, that's something I've suggested as a possibility for quite a while--not to protect publishers from competition, and not to prevent publishers from getting rich, but to protect advertisers.

I'm seeing a very strange metric for Wednesday's report.

My clicks are up almost 65% to where they were Pre-Glitch HOWEVER I cannot see these clicks anywhere in my channels nor in my earnings!

Everything is at my new 2008 norm. If the clicks were not showing I would have thought it just a normal day however 65% extra and no earnings?

If they remain after the end of the day I'll be querying from where they came.
