For me (in the UK) it's extremely slow. Things have been going up and up over the last six months but today is down around 50% of what I would expect. Roller coaster maybe, but our site is extremely predictable and has been for two years. Today is different so far.

Half what it should be for me too.

A few hours ago it was looking like it was going to be a decidedly "meh" day, but then I suddenly had a click dump, and while it's too soon to tell how good a day it'll ultimately be, it appears that it'll at least be decent.
In the last week or so, things have definitely slowed down. Last month was much better, as was the month before. But still, there has been a big jump from the less-than-impressive earnings I suffered with for quite a while.

Well, it's now officially a pretty good day! Huh!
My theory is that we all take turns having good days and crap days. Up and down, up and down . . .

I agree with you, mhale.
maybe we can call it as adsense dance :)

Bad, bad day so far....

I think, in 1-3 days it will be good for you too, Cien.
Today is ours
tomorrow is somebodyelse's
maybe the day after will be your day ;)

Tend not to be too bothered about the days, the months are important though.

I think I may have found out why my revenues are down. The 728x90 ad unit started showing 4 ads instead of 3 ads the last few days. This in turn causes the font size of the ads to be quite small and not very readable. All my other ad units are on par, it is just this size on certain pages that is down the last 2 days.

I can say that;
300x250 Medium Rectangle shows wrong size ( even if I set it large, it shows small size most of the time )

Thursday and Friday CTR was down with same traffic. Daily earnings were below the previous daily average. Today it seems a bit better, even with low CTR due some crazy high clicks I'm getting. Talking $5, $10, $12. Trying to figure out what's up! I'm afraid the answer is "your number buddy!" :-)
What do you think as a big Adwords advertiser you would be doing these days? Stopping your campaigns due to most people being in Thanksgiving mood and not thinking about buying anything other than turkey? :-) Maybe waiting for the 26th? I don't know... what do you think?
Regarding some comments above about Google displaying ads differently, I found that if you clear your cookies, they display them as intended.

Great day yesterday (record day of the month), rubbish so far today.
Oh how I love/hate the AdSense rollercoaster..

Do you think adsense will be stable again in future?
| 12:05 am on Nov 21, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Only if they drop interest based advertising or make it optional.

we can disable interest based ads in adsense account. this is already optional.

Partially disables it. Doesn't disable the ad stalking which is what many people think "interest based advertising" is.

Blimey...I've fallen off a cliff today, horrible so far. I hope this is not the start of the Thanksgiving meltdown!

Same here Huskypup - in fact last few days have been a tad low. Hopefully it's all just a blip or a seasonal trend.

| 5:14 pm on Nov 22, 2010 (gmt 0)|
extremely low here too
| 5:42 pm on Nov 22, 2010 (gmt 0)|
good ctr, but very very low $ per click
| 5:45 pm on Nov 22, 2010 (gmt 0)|
best day yesterday for a while for me :/
| 6:09 pm on Nov 22, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Not the best start to a Monday for me...would like to think it's a reporting lag. Would also like to believe in Santa Claus...

Thursday thru Sunday were "ok" days. Today we are back on track. Lots of traffic from search.aol.com and search.yahoo.com today! I guess the Aol dial-upers and Yahoo old schoolers are out in full force! :-)

Wait, I just checked Google Analytics. There is a slight reporting lag, at least over thisaway.
| 6:58 pm on Nov 22, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Not super great so far, but I've had much worse. I just hope the rest of the day picks up a bit.

Anyone see extremely low CPM on 23 November? Up until today, Novembers earnings were more than October, today the CPM level went back to the lowest levels last seen in May/june months.

Today, in the words of jmcc...it's borked...the hamsters are no longer, they're deceased! My metrics have not moved since the first hour with a grand total of USD 1.00
| 12:54 pm on Nov 23, 2010 (gmt 0)|
|Anyone see extremely low CPM on 23 November? |
Yes, pretty low. These next three days could be horrible with people traveling and spending time with family.
| 2:33 pm on Nov 23, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Not extremely low, extremely not there, never seen that before this time of day (cough) helloOOoo GooOOogle ? Maybe they really are using hamsters.
