Wow. Good start of the first business day after Christmas, as thought. It's only 7:04 am. High CTR and eCPM. Days leading to Christmas thru the 26th were disastrous but still December has definitely been the best month EVA!

Heck, yesterday ended up double Xmas day and today has already beaten yesterday...unfortunately my EPC is still very low but at least the numbers are going in the right direction.

Yesterday for me was only half of Xmas day and today looks like ending half of yesterdays earnings. Oh well, I knew it up front. At least this was my best Adsense month ever.

For me, visits and earnings are way low. Way way low.
| 8:08 pm on Dec 28, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Looks dead today. Impressions increasing gradually but no clicks.
| 8:52 pm on Dec 28, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Oh, just saw this and went and had a look. I must admit that considering I've had more traffic than yesterday the numbers do look well behind...back to normal eh G?

Guess the hamsters are still drunk from Christmas. Not sure if it is a post-Christmas sales effect when most of the punters are out at the shops but the figures have been absolutely dire for the last week or so. I had plans to launch a very large UK web directory with Google as the main monetisation but I've been looking at affiliate advertising as a viable alternative. Today's earnings are currently at a tenth of yesterday's so it is either lagged or the curse of Goofle has struck again.

Kinda average today, but slightly better than yesterday.
| 10:19 pm on Dec 28, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Pretty slow day. Low traffic, low EPC, low CTR. As if the world were asleep..
| 1:28 am on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Low here too.
| 1:40 pm on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0)|
28th good traffic and impressions, absolutely crap CTR and EPC again...bleh!
| 7:42 pm on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Earnings have tanked :-(
| 8:14 pm on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0)|
I can't wait for the new year...

Me too. Hoping 2011 brings back AdSense 2008.
| 9:45 pm on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Yesterday I had a pretty awesome day, but today my traffic is good (as is the CTR) but the EPC is much, much lower than usual. It's a fifth of what it usually is, it seems.
The rollercoaster continues :)
| 10:21 pm on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0)|
My stats haven't moved for hours...very low adsense impressions and 2 clicks (0.17)? Stuck again! Now I wait for the stats "dump".
| 11:49 pm on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Dead today. It would be great for Adsense to return to 2008 levels but that's unlikely. Did Google banjax its algorithm for Christmas or something?
| 12:38 am on Dec 30, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Earnings down to about 1/5th of what they once were. :-(
| 1:53 am on Dec 30, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Very, very unimpressed with G right now...I bet their financials will be ok though.
| 3:49 am on Dec 30, 2010 (gmt 0)|
I see real good numbers, 15%-20% more than usual.
| 3:08 pm on Dec 30, 2010 (gmt 0)|
OK, yesterday was the absolute worst, and today (only 10am US EST) is way up! My eCPM is twice as high as a good day, as well as CTR, yet low traffic. A stats dump from yesterday maybe?

|A stats dump from yesterday maybe? |
Lucky you, I'm still flatlining even though I have first two weeks of December traffic numbers.
My earnings for the past two weeks have literally been 50% of the first two weeks of the month...an absolute AdSense mess and I guess I'm going to have to tolerate this for another 12 days to ascertain whether AdSense is ever going to recover.
If it continues at these levels into mid January then it will be removal time, I have plenty of my own new stuff to promote:-)

Last two days have ended up being normal earning days even though traffic was way down. I seriously doubt the new year will bring anything good this way. Pages are dropping like flies from G.'s engines. Just like it did before Mayday. Actually "MarchDay" which I think it was when the mayday thread was started. That's a battle I can't win.
| 5:00 pm on Dec 30, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Yesterday was the second best day of the YEAR, $9 short of beating the top earning day. December, unlike last year, happened to be the BEST and profitable month. Me is happy? Undoubtedly yes.
With that, I wish y'all folks a good 2011. :)
| 5:27 pm on Dec 31, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Great day yesterday. Got a clickdump around 8pm. December is up 25% from November even dough pages keep dropping like flies from Google. December goes on records as the best adsense month ever. Happy 2011 everyone.
| 6:56 pm on Dec 31, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Yesterday was good, today isn't, although CTR is up (eCPM is down). I'm hoping it turns around, and 2011 becomes a "Happy New Year!"
| 10:03 pm on Dec 31, 2010 (gmt 0)|
For me it is stuck. Stuck stuck stuck. Less than 40% earnings today.
| 11:06 pm on Dec 31, 2010 (gmt 0)|
More than stuck

Hello, earth to AdSensers, today is New Years Eve, people are out partying, not sitting around clicking your ads.
They aren't stuck, they just suck, and those same people will be nursing hangovers tomorrow so don't expect ads to be clicked then unless you run a site about hangover cures.
See you all back here on Jan 2nd when the internet returns to normal :)

I'm thinking January 3rd.

Not to labour the point however those nice stats AdSense gives us show for me that the 31st December has remained unaffected for several years...now January 1st is completely different and I'll bet that Sunday 2nd January will be a continuation of the Xmas debacle for me.
A straight comparison with 31.12.2009 shows my EPC at nearly 50%, it's been an absolutely abysmal and ABNORMAL end to the year for me.
