April has been a bust. Looking forward to May.

Yesterday ended up below average, and today's poor so far. CTR is okay (despite having badly targetted ads most of the time), but CPC is low.

Bust here too!

Today so far looks bleak. :-(

Well it is Easter in the US. Earnings down across the board naturally
| 6:47 pm on Apr 24, 2011 (gmt 0)|
First single digit days since day one in 1994. Down from triple digits days in 2005.
I'll wait a month or two but at this point it isn't worth bothering visitors with any ads on pages.
| 7:01 pm on Apr 24, 2011 (gmt 0)|
At least you're in the single digit... I'm in decimals currently. I'll have to start paying Adsense if this keeps going.

I like these new country performance reports, it looks as though the USA is closed, so far I've earned twice as much from the UK, unbelievable!
| 11:41 pm on Apr 24, 2011 (gmt 0)|
A dud Easter with earnings, but a great day with my wife and kids...so I can't complain. Good night all.

Today, my AdSense stats show the lowest Page impressions since 2004. Something is messed up.
| 1:19 am on Apr 25, 2011 (gmt 0)|
I don't think so, normal people have a life outside of the Net and especially so when it's nice weather or if they are otherwise busy!
Even I, me, yes, ME, have sublimingly switched off for a few days...I need the break, no doubt many others do...go have a beer and relax...BTW, the band we had tonight were great fun, it's a pity you missed them :-)))
| 9:59 am on Apr 25, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Off topic I know, but who was the band?
| 1:47 pm on Apr 25, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Rough Trade...Not the most technically competent but that doesn't matter since they just love playing classic rock and the crowd enjoy them for that and the place heaved all night.
Sunday's earnings were slightly better than Saturday although with less Impressions but a much better CTR. The finish to this month is going to be "interesting" insofar as the UK is concerned.
| 5:33 pm on Apr 25, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Today is off to a bad start. Impressions are way up, 2 clicks, NO earnings minus 3 cents (PPI)? Either stats are really stuck, or ads are only showing to me. :D

If stats aren't stuck today, something must be very broken at Google.

1/26th normal clicks today and 1/25 normal earnings. That's all I'm going to say about that.
| 11:12 pm on Apr 25, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Similar here. Something is terribly wrong today.
| 11:44 pm on Apr 25, 2011 (gmt 0)|
What the heck is going on?
My second biggest site's clicks are +33%, CTR +37%, eCPM +92%, earnings +87%
I'm having a normal traffic day yet earnings are easily the best in the last 10 days...bizarre.
| 1:35 am on Apr 26, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Wow, here I am at 9:32 pm EST and impressions are way up, yet CTR is at a low 0.28%. 2 clicks got 0, and 2 high paying clicks aren't showing in my channel data? Something is whacked. Someone is whacking the hamster.
| 2:42 am on Apr 26, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Impressions are good today. But the CTR reported is 0.04% and I'm finding that very hard to believe.
| 9:20 am on Apr 26, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Monday was what I would consider a completely normal day with everything back to the beginning of April metrics except that my second biggest site had its best day in 9 months and was nearly the top earner...it was 2006 revisited:-)

That's great news HuskyPup. My day was the 19th - raised my spirits big time and rekindled my optimism that things were finally turning around. Sadly, it didn't last. April will most certainly be my lowest AdSense payment in years. Yesterday closed at about 75% of what used to be my daily average and better than most of the days this month (so an upswing at least). Hopefully today will be even better!

Had a great 25th, too. And today seems like it's off to a good start too.
| 1:18 pm on Apr 26, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Yesterday ended up being a good day after CTR cought-up..today seems like yesterday as far as slow starts are concerned.

Back to that Panda thing for a second. I gather duplicate content is an issue and personally, if I get sent an article I always make sure it hasn't been published elsewhere. I wouldn't dream of just ripping off someone else's content and find it hard to believe people out there have the nerve to do that.
I've been doing a bit of checking and I've found several sites that have scraped my content - one even set up a load of categories the same as mine and didn't even bother to change it at all.
My question is, does Panda know who published first, or does it blindly penalize both parties? Thoughts anyone?
| 5:43 pm on Apr 26, 2011 (gmt 0)|
(You need to go hit up the Google SEO forum for Panda issues. There's lots of items there. And no, currently Panda does not seem to be able to ascertain who publishes first)

Good job that profanity is not allowed on this forum as today's earnings would really justify them. Saturday and Sunday were relatively good though. Perhaps they've banjaxed the targeting again.
| 9:06 pm on Apr 26, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Impressions have gradually been moving up today but click count is at a standstill for several hours.
