February 2011 AdSense Earnings

No problems, I'll start it:-)

Am I supposedly to accept without question that on the 1st February 2011 that global advertisers in my industry suddenly decided to increase their bids and that visitors thought it was a good time to start clicking?

It was my best day since 18th November 2010.

Page impressions normal.

My CTR returned to normal, i.e. pre-Thanksgiving Day

My eCPM returned to normal, i.e. pre-Thanksgiving Day

My EPC retuned to normal, i.e. pre-Thanksgiving Day

My earnings returned to normal, i.e. pre-Thanksgiving Day

I am expected to believe this is a "normal" advertising market?

January was up over last January, February is down compared to last February, but for me it's not apples and oranges, as #1 this is always typically my slowest month (I'd start a Valentine's Day site but the world doesn't really *need* another Valentine's Day site) and #2 I took the AdSense off for about five days while switching over some sites to WordPress. If there really is an AdSense slide, I probably won't notice it till late March, early April at the earliest.

Jan this year was slightly down over last, but Feb is on track to be the lowest since 2005 :-(

Horribly low EPC for me today, back to December and early January numbers.

I would have to agree with you guys. ECPm is bad this month. Worse than December. Traffic is great though and EPC is actually higher for me. Hopefully March will get better.

Is there a problem this Monday with President's Day in US?
It's a working day?

It's a federal holiday. No problem for the US and state and local governments, or bank, schools and others who have the day off.

Any kind of US holiday seems to be a reason for celebration for the Adsense people and a day of absolutely dire earnings for those here on Planet Earth. Let's hope it isn't too bad today.

The click counters are taking the day off too? ;)

Pathetic Sunday, normal traffic and clicks, earnings at 59% of February average with EPC at 65%.

Easily the worst day of the month by more than 10% over data loss Sunday 6th, at least that day I kept my average EPC.

Something's turned very ugly again on the Google dial in the last few days.

Traffic and clicks increased last 2 days, earnings stay low.

Halfway through a Google Day and I've already exceeded Sunday's earnings with 33% fewer clicks!

Crazy, crazy, crazy...from my lowest day of the month, Sunday, I went to my second highest day with 49.5% more Page Impressions, 45% more clicks and 114% more in earnings!

As my old mate used to say: "I know nothing and I haven't known that for very long!"

Today's yet another crappy day. Impressions up, ctr down and eCPM is down by 50%. Stats laggy today or what?

Indeed, laggy. However, I have shifted my focus towards content (and traffic!).

Yesterday and today is just horrible. It is my lowest in the past 2 years. Never it has gone so slow.

Don't know what is wrong?

Yes, accept it. We had blizzard in the U.S over half the country during the first few days of February. It rocked our online world, like never before.

The first day of the month is typically slow, with brick and mortar racking up huge sales. February 1, is the highest first day of the month I've had in ten years. It was also the most snow this nation had seen as a whole, dipping further south than usual. It was a perfect scenario for many nitches.

Still on a roll today, go figure. Unfortunately, things have been very poor for months on end here in AdSense land. Nice to see today's stats looking like a day from years gone by. Here's to hoping the numbers stick around awhile.

This month started very good, but has been poor for the last week along with a decrease in visitors for some reason. I had also been flicking some of those big red switches in account settings so that might be the problem, although I doubt it. Not going to get too excited, if it's still this dire half way through next month I'll worry though.

We're all still having fun though, right?

Yesterday closed as the highest all month, yay. Still way below what once was, but at least an upward move for a change.

Adsense daily income seems to behave like a large barrel of apples. Whilst some get more on a particular day, others get less.

Munch.. munch.. munch.

Same here, matched earnings from jan 2004 / Thats -85% of last 5 years average.

Noticed some very, very poor targeting. It really isn't as good as it once was in my opinion.

This isn't a rollercoaster any more, it's peaks and troughs one day to the next.

Tuesday I had my highest traffic day of the year, EPC average down 10% and a weekend click volume leaving a way below average earning's day.

Strong statement, but I don't see any network (contextual and CPM) competing against Adsense.

I am giving my best, but earnings are low. On the positive side, traffic has seen an increase. Now I can't wait for the Adsense to be back to normal, so I will have an increase in overall earnings (as the traffic has increased). :)

Can't wait (yes, I am being very positive today). :)
