Well, my February was all over the place, very similar to The Himalayas in profile!

Overall the first 15 seconds of March were terrible, the second 15 seconds were exceptionally good.

Probably the pattern for the whole month.

More later.

Because I'm Irish - I am hoping March brings me some luck. January and February were sucky - just like every month has been since my site got Pancer on April 11th.

What? Google AdSense sometimes takes 15 seconds or so to load for me - Are we down to checking revenue every few seconds now?

So far March earnings can be summed up with one word 'sucks"

February was my best month ever, and followed a January which was my best month ever. Income for Feb 2012 was 157% of Feb. 2011, and Feb. 2011 was higher than average for all the months of 2011. Feb. 2012 had my first triple digit dollar days (2 of them).

February was FANTASTIC. Always wanted to do that here. Feel I am being self righteous, pompus, rubbing everyones faces in it. But hey, its my turn. And of course because no doubt March will tank ......

I agree. Something is seriously wrong.

2 hours 20 minutes with no clicks. Given all my sites historys, impossible. Pageviews/Traffic reporting as normal.

They might be scrubbing random IPs that click now. "Let's see, it's Thursday! All IPs that start with a 1 are invalid today! Return the revenue to the advertiser it was no good!".

Nothing for most of the evening. The impressions have been going up though.

If any of you are using link units, they may not be displaying on your sites (or at least not consistently for all users) today. On my site, impressions are normal but link unit clicks are down from hundreds/day to near-zero.

I haven't seen any official word on the issue but there's a discussion at [google.com...]

Yep, no link units being displayed on my site. Checked it in IE and firefox.

Makes me wonder, Does Google just let a bunch of yokels push buttons freely (or insert random code freely) without testing its effects? This is costing us a bunch of $$$ - think what its costing Google. Apparently some of the supposed genius folks at G just are not up to snuff.

Bad here too.

Thanks Netmeg, I will try that (Note:from Febuary 2012 earnings topic)

Also I have noticed today that all websites I have listed in Google webmaster tools now show up under site reports in adsense even though some of them never had adsense on them. This could make things confusing. Anyone else notice this?

First day of March continued the February doldrums. Earnings 45% of average :-(

I can raise and see you.

My site search yesterday yielded:

6 clicks for $A 0.01 total

I just wish we could have consistent CTR.

Rubbish ads = rubbish CTR = rubbish EPC.

Other days, the complete opposite occurs. A lucky dip I have no control over.

Good grief, what have they fubard now?

So far today a grand total of USD 0.45 with almost 0% CTR!

Needless to say yesterday was utter garbage.

300% less then ever terrible day march 1 traffic the same.

Feb was a very good month but>>>>

I have to wonder is all this negative press over Google's privacy policy having a direct impact on our earnings? Our single day earnings have never been this low for a day since adsense was launched what 7-8 years ago.

300% less

OK, I admit to a bit of ignorance when it comes to math, but I don't understand this kind of statement at all. We see this kind of statement here fairly often, so I must have just missed out on the math lesson somehow.

Help me out.

If the best day was $100.00 and the worst day was "300% less" how much did the worst day total?

They're probably doing it in reverse. They earned $33.33 which is 300% less than their best day.

That would be 200% less, I guess.

How exactly would that work?

A significant number of people who visit the sites of some publishers don't click on the AdSense ads because of Privacy Policy news while people who visit the sites of other publishers don't follow that approach and click away as usual if not more?

If I believed that were happening, I'd want to know the topics of sites that attract the non-clickers and avoid those topics.

ken_b what's 300% of 30? Let me help ya it is 90. So if I averaged 90 a day and March 1 did 30 what percent difference it that?

HuskyPup




msg:4424173

33.33%

33% of 100, minus what is left, is 10% of 100 which is 200 (plus or minus the difference). so he has earnt ten times what he earnt the first time
