Come on G, shake things up a bit, you're becoming far too predictable!

I've decided to experiment with ads that "clash",

Does this fit into an overall strategy for long-term traffic growth, site usability, and user trust?

netmeg, are you seeing any large discrepancy in your click counts from Crazy Egg with those of AdSense?


Not running any crazy egg tests at the moment; but I see large discrepancies between StatCounter and AdSense.

Mine's now stuck for 3 or 4 hours. Going to hit the pillow and see what the damage is come morning.

Well I woke up to nothing spectacular at all - Google just wanted to mess with my head last night. I'm back to checking stats once a day from now on.

Hmmm...I woke up to my best day since 27th June mostly due, at some point during the night, to some excellent click values from two specific sites with quite a few $1.00+ clicks several of which were obviously from the UK...yet another bizarre AdSense day.

I see those variations too and decided to step back a bit and try to see things on a weekly or even monthly basis. Doesn't make sense to go nuts on one (or two) not so good day if the weekly results (or monthly) are on the way up.

I just changed some Adsense units with Chitika. They used to be lower earners than Adsense, but with these low numbers lately they might be better performing than Adsense...

I had 1 O.K day this month, and the rest have been really bad. If this continues, I'll be making some changes to alternatives. They can't pay much worse the AdSense has been lately.

I've had one average day, and eight below average days in July - same ads, same visitor numbers, same number of clicks, but not close to some of the payouts I was getting on good days in May and June. Not looking promising at all, and I really don't understand why.

I've had only one average day since mid May. Everything else has been under. That's a very long stretch for my account to not see average earnings. Been running AdSense since November 2004, never seen it this bad. Hope it gets better.

Saturday was the worst day. Its like my servers were offline. Making things worst, my Amazon stats took a dive.

Well it *feels* like it's really low, but if I look at the stats, even after my huge traffic peaked, it's still way up over last year this time. I guess that's good.

Yesterday closed at 90%. So far, today is off to a slow start.

Slow as molasses here too and targeting is way off.

Sometimes I wonder about how these people in Adsense decide that their targeting algorithms are "good enough". Targeting seems a bit flakey and stats are slow but it is a weekend.

Don't know jmccormac. Targeting on my site has been pretty good year after year, then all of a sudden, it's not? Poor targeting and poor ad block designs - no wonder my earnings have tanked. :-(

Disgustingly horrible. If it is not their targeting, they are losing advertisers by the 1,000s.

I think they micro-managed this thing where we are headed back to 2002 and there wasn't a way to make money with ads on your websites anymore unless it was an affiliate program.

My thinking is that we are at the end of an era for webmasters. It really looks like the days of the hard working independent webmaster earning income through third party ads is on it's way out. GoogleSoft's Algo favors back door buddy deals with big name websites, and the adsense department is punishing webmasters with a nose-diving eCPM for various reasons.

It really looks like the end of an era, or one that is pale reflection of what it once was.

We might have to face the facts that the "Wal-Marting" of the web means that our field of producing independent websites is obsolete. When you are getting hit from both sides, I think they are trying to tell you something.

My earnings are going to absolutely soar with ads like this one on my home page:

Yesterday (Saturday) & today are my worst days in a long long time. 50% less than average for the weekend.

@azlinda I have the same horrible ads, but a different garbage title and description.

AdSense is busy taking money back from me right now. Every time I look, my earnings have gone down.

Looks like I've found myself onboard the Adsense Titanic too this month. Traffic, impressions normal. EPC lower but CTR, eCPM off the cliff on a death plunge.

Sunday's earnings were at the lower end of my usual spread equalling my second lowest click volume since Xmas Day 2008 but with an EPC average at the top end of my usual spread!

I'm off to do some real work today with real customers, back in 12 hours or so with real orders and real profits!

azlinda - if I were seeing ads like that, I'd be all over the Google forums like white on rice complaining about it - not just AdSense, but AdWords too. That's just wrong. And if your site somehow is being targeted by some weird scam/spam click fraud network (of which there are plenty) you at least want to get someone's attention. Next time you see ads like that, you take screenshots.

Okay, thanks, netmeg. I will screen shot it the next time. I'm off to the forums!
