A trick. If you are using the old interface, access the new one and then click back to the old interface. You'll see the more recent stats.

Today CTR & IMPs are darn low for me. Pathetic day so far.

Worst day of the month. Earnings down 60%. No hope left for a click dump.

Oh heck...just broke my second worst day of the year with a new worst day of the year for click volume.

EPC also collapsed resulting in my worst earning's day since February and way below my acceptable daily average...and so far today 2 clicks and that's it.

Needless to say that's hardly registering either a CTR or eCPM.

So, do I change data loss day descriptions into data delay days?

Since quite a few have experienced the same extremely low CTR Friday it will be interesting to see if any of us have an unexpectedly good day soon or if this is a precursor to another excellent Google earnings' performance?

Yesterday was the worst day in 7 years, traffic stable, CTR down 80% across our network, revenue down by as much.

Hitting new low & new high is common now. I already hitted both in this month. yesterday was fairly decent day, One of the best earning day in this month.

Another victim of Google's Panda update here. Starting April 11th, saw page views plunge from over 33,000/day average to 22,000 views/day (1/3 drop). Worse yet, Adsense clicks and revenue took a nose dive and are down 58%! Yet the website's main index page and most of the 450+ article pages are still in the top search results positions. WTF?

Is Google playing games with its "partners"?

Since Google has no accountability whatsoever to its publisher partners, and there is apparently no independent means of verifying clicks, an no way to know what percentage Google is paying its Adsense publishers, I guess we're essentially screwed.

I think it's time for the Federal Trade Commission or Congress or somebody to come up with regulations requiring Google to account for what it does with its search engine games and ad click accounting. We also need a Bill of Rights to protect web publishers against abuse my monopolistic giants like Google.

This is on your Account Settings page:

https://www.google.com/adsense/account-settings

For me supposedly:

AdSense for Content: 68 % publisher revenue share
AdSense for Search: 51 % publisher revenue share

After loosing some traffic (maybe a little more than some), I have noticed that after the last Panda update that my ecpm has gone up significantly this week. My theory is that the Panda update must of really wiped out some scraper sites running adsense in my niche resulting in advertisers bidding higher to get the same amount of traffic. Anyone else seeing this and/or agree?

P.S. Overall earnings are still down compared to last month.

In my niche, the ecpm has dropped way down, but the number of clicks has is slightly more than double the last few days. The overall average daily earnings are holding steady if not a little bit higher.

Unless there's a miracle, April is going to be the lowest earnings month in years. :-(

If my earnings per click wasnt way up, I would be in big trouble. Hope it holds. Off 12% from revenue from all time highs in November.

Have you guys tried using the large square block ads at the top and bottom of your pages? I changed to these 2 months ago and they are performing much better than the 468x60's.

It's nothing to do with that, AdSense seems to be in a state of flux, high then low CTR, high then low EPC, absolutely no consistency other than inconsistency at the moment.

Something's affecting some of us on a daily basis but quite why I doubt we'll ever know.

Hmmm...a precisely average April day in the end across the board, clicks, ctr, ecpm, epc and earnings...hmmm!

Yep, post-panda disaster. The CTR is terrible with the traffic I have left. Hoping a site redesign will help fix things.

Complete collapse of CTR and earnings as a result, traffic levels and sources the same, ads seem the same across all sites.

Earnings now down to 10% of the two year average, lowest earnings since we started in 2003. Starting to swap out AdSense now across all sites that still have inventory running with them.

I know Google could care less but there goes the last million pvs a month we had been sending you G. I would email support but after the last few broken english useless boilerplate responses what is the point?

Was a good run Google, we made lots of money with you over the years. Your greed, lack of communication and poor customer service has brought us here. Enjoy that last bit you can squeeze out of smaller publishers to bring those numbers up to street expectations:)

This is my last AdSense related post.

Goodbye Google!

My earnings started getting weird around April 7th. Pretty much down to less than half now - and lower than they have been in years. I also noticed my ads look different. Urls in the ads now right after the title, and some are underlined, some aren't.....a lot of off topic ads....it really jakes up my site. I use the large rectangle exclusively.....and it just looks bad the way they have changed it. I think that's hurt earnings for sure....but my pages views are WAY down too. They have been cut by 2/3. OUCH!

@drall i strongly advice don't go by day to day stats, If by the end of month your earning don't improve then throw adsense out, Have patience i can understand your suffering.

Average weekend earnings, not average weekday earnings, however neither Tuesday's nor Friday's data losses have appeared...added to Google's bottom line no doubt!
