Perhaps a little early, but it's now into the 2nd day of March here in the UK soo... the March 2011 AdSense thread.

Yesterday I had a pretty good day. The rebound I seen at the end of Feb thankfully continued. Long may it continue!

I don't think that many users clear their coockies.


No they don't clear their cookies, but if the users are new visitors to that specific page where you saw the ads repeated on, the users most likely won't see the same repeated ads across all units you've seen as Google hasn't cookied those users yet. They'll probably see different ads too due to IBA.

I said to clear your cookies for you to see new ads. It appears you have visited that specific page more than once. "Clearing cookies" is the same as "new visitor to that specific page" in this case. Try using a proxy to see if you see the same ads.

Man, traffic is down today (or major reporting lag), and I don't think it's the Panda algo change, as I only have two ads per page tops. I'm at half my trafic volume even though CTR is at a high?

My earnings are up on the sites that gained traffic in Panda. If it is true that Google knocked down the sites with over zealous ad usage, does less ad inventory space = higher prices per click? Sorry for you Adwords folks, but I hope so.

Fewer clicks today, but high CPC, so I cannot complain.

Great day here too along with yesterday. Very predictable earnings and traffic too during the week after the Panda update.

Been having good luck for almost a month now. CTR reporting seem to be stuck today for me. It's been for hours. Maybe CTR is just low today. EPC is high though.

Have they started the G-Machine today?

Nearly 3 hours into a Friday and I have 500 impression and less than a Dollar!

Quick, resucitate the hamsters...they've fallen off the wheel.

Yesterday impressions where way up and CTR was at an all time low. Today seems the same so far. Oh well.

Today I'm seeing many AdSense page impressions (all time high) and NOT ONE CLICK is showing? Stats delay perhaps?

Excellent data loss day Friday!

My biggest site had its lowest-ever click day, apart from Xmas, by a considerable margin down almost 33% on average, even more if compared to a normal weekday, CTR just over -30%, eCPM -28%, actual earnings -26.7%, easily my worst earnings' day since the first week of February!

Unless there is a HUGE click dump at some point today, I am looking at my worst Adsense day since back in 2007 when I started.
Traffic down, eCPM down...well everything down.

My natural search results from Google are four times higher than a year ago, but my AdSense earnings have deteriorated since the beginning of the year. So far March is the worst yet.

Odd that Google search values my site more, while AdSense values my site less.

Things are definately NOT RIGHT. Today is as "strange" as yesterday. How can everything be so low, with "human" traffic so high? I was expecting a click dump from yesterday that never came for two days now? It's as if Google isn't counting any clicks, just impressions. I received only FOUR of the lowest paying clicks in TWO DAYS, and impressions are almost double the usual amount!

Confused...

CTR has been on the low side for 2 1/2 days now while traffic keeps increasing. Been getting a lot of 1 cent clicks too since Thursday.

yep, quite bad. Haven't seen single digit earnings in quite a while!

HuskyPup



 
Msg#: 4275127 posted 12:12 pm on Mar 13, 2011 (gmt 0)

This is bizarre, I ended up with an excellent Saturday's earnings.

Actual clicks were -22% however my EPC was +31% giving me +10% on the day.

Did I get some unaccounted for credits on my biggest site that were lost on Friday going from its worst day of the month to its best? Combining the two days metrics show clicks -15% yet earnings are are within USD 0.25 of the daily average!

Interestingly last Saturday is now its second best day of the month so far.

Something is very screwed-up somewhere.

Ended the day 70% down! Hope it's just a lag in reporting and there's a click dump on the way... otherwise... sigh...

Sunday wasn't the best of days. Standard (or a bit above average) views or CPC, but CTR was 1-2% absolute points lower.

Ah well, my Saturday was above average with above-average CTR and CPC so it cancels out I guess.
