Stats stuck.

Weblog shows things as normal. Adsense is way behind.

Btw, the shorter the month, the more I earn. Leap year isn't helping.

Leap year episode from the show Frasier comes to mind.

Strange. Yesterday's earnings were OK, considering it was a Sunday. Today they are awful.

I have one ad block that's intermittently tossing up nothing but blank white space plus a blue arrow. Pretty sure it's a bad image or flash ad. Aggravating.

Strange day. CTR is up, but there all low paying countries. 90% of the impressions are from the US with 0 CTR.

Today so far has the highest ad requests in months matched with the lowest CTR in months. :-|

Big time CPM tank! This is terrible. Hope it improves.

Big time click dump. This is great. Hasn't happened in a-a-a-g-e-s. Makes up for the many crappy days this month. Hope it improves.

Click count unchanged for most of the day, but impressions have been moving right along. Crazy.

Ever since they integrated that bozo IBA thing, earnings have declined. But the last few weeks have been utterly weird - like some room temperature IQed hamster has been left loose to play with the controls.

One of my sites got some good press and had a nice increase in traffic, results CTR went to an all time low, about an 80% drop from the already miserable CTR. Today traffic returning to normal but CTR is still in the cellar.

WHERE'S THE CLICK DUMP! How can I have so many impressions with 0% CTR?

CTR is awfully low today yet impressions increase at a reasonable rate, leading to an abominably low RPM. Does Google segregate and verify each and every click before reporting them, and do they then report them in a series of click dumps which may or may not come? If it's the latter, then I'm looking at another lousy day in a sub-par month.

Had to remove ads from one of my sites because of some kind of bot attack. So that happened.

Finally 3 clicks :( 0.01% CTR, average CPC 0.14, eCPM 0.25

Something is seriously wrong.

Looks fine here - lower than yesterday, but generally higher than daily average.

Bad today here too. Something just does not seem right lately because one day its OK then the next its bad and so on. Impressions are OK its just that ctr is unpredictable.

At this point I need to merge one of my sites or sell one of them.

Is there a place in this forum where we can talk freely and more privately on this subject. I would not mind merging with one of my competitors that use adsense in my niche. It just might make sense and why compete all day long with each other.

Taking two sites in a niche and combining them could make a difference.

Extremely low ctr for the last week or so. Hoping for better in March.

APE ... AdSense Pathetical Earnings!

UK CTR 27% of February average

Something is seriously wrong.


Not when they keep most of it for themselves and shareholders...no other explanation required.

Google has turned into Gonron:-)

I can't believe how bad yesterdays earnings were. 0.11% CTR, earning 0.54? And impressions were almost twice the norm? Again, unbelievable.

You bet they do! I've noticed that they have made it useless to check stats several times a day. It was certainly something I use to do more of until I noticed the sloooowness of their intra-day reporting a year or more ago. Although I always wake up to a higher earnings day the next morning! While a love the discussions of this thread it does seem to be futile to look at intra-day stats and put any trend of value on it. Of course as most of you would agree, longer term trends matter more.

This month started out gangbusters, but continues to deteriorate. I blame Greece. Or the Mayan Calendar. Or Charlie Sheen. That's it! It's all Sheen's fault.

I just got a $100 click. Average is about twelve cents. I expect a revision shortly.

@marcus11

I started up with AdSense in 2004 and while their reporting was never in real time, updates were frequent enough that checking stats gave you a pretty good idea about how things were going. Nowadays it's more like unreal time - no idea what's going on at all anymore. Very frustrating for those of us habituated to checking stats (and not nearly as fun as in the old days either!)

It stinks when you expect a click dump while you're sleeping and check "yesterdays" stats the following morning and no change. This is how it's been the last two days. DIRE!

Totally agree Play Bach, it was actually fun to watch the money roll in back in those days!
