March was one heck of a roller coaster ride for me and many others, let's hope they've ironed out whatever it is they've been attempting to do!

I don't know what is your niche guys but in my pages all google adds are very well related and targeted.

Thanks to blocking, my ads have never been more targeted than they are now.

Wow.. Having one of the worst week ever! Lowest ever recorded CPC and CTRs.. Amongst all that, my traffic continues to grow; and I'm still ranking on page one for all those keywords. Does anyone here knows any ad network that might be giving better returns?

And that is, flood the visitors with the same ads everywhere they go.


And that might well explain the occasional high paying click from a visitor "pinned by google" with high value ads. It could happen on a page that never had such a high payout in its entire existence. I got several examples of those now.

But still - it seems there are still times where site content & ads match, reverting to the old style Adsense pattern.

I have a few pages where the ads always match - whatever trick i play. Even upto public computers at banks, libraries or using anonymous VPN lines that get me into another country.

Yesterday earnings down again to just 30% of average. So far, April has been a bust.

Google doesn't gave you bread for all those years for free?


That's a very strange way at looking at things!

I do my work for free for Google to scrape it and then earn money from it?

Wow, no wonder I can't make anything from AdSense, I'd forgotten that I'm slave labour and they're the master.

Thanks George_1, I know where I stand in the pecking order now.

HuskyPup, who are these people? I can understand English as your second or third language can be tough to put together (heck, I don't speak anything else but English!), but the arrogance of some here really blows.

Consider yourself reminded then, Husky. This is the new Google order. OMMMMMMMM... el-gooG.. el-gooG... OMMMMMM.. el-gooG... el-gooG...

Clicks appear to be frozen - I'm about 75% down on my usual number of clicks (which is pretty consistent on a daily basis) - page impressions are moving though. Anyone else in the same boat? Fingers crossed for a click dump!

You've got clicks? You've got impressions?

Ok, I've 2 clicks!

My stats are way out compared to my logs, maybe they're waiting to upload my weekend click dump?

Just a few Huskypup - I think Adsense is keeping the rest for themselves.

I need a click dump.
I’m holding on for a click dump ‘till the morning light
It's gotta be big
It’s gotta pay well
Cos I'm stuck inside Adsense hell.

:-) Merci.

I was waiting in the car earlier, and had a quick browse on the mobile, and noticed next too all my ads (no matter who the advertiser), a big arrow appears on the left of the ad pointing towards it. I checked my other sites, and this doesn't happen. Is it a mobile thing, and is it restricted to certain sites only?

Yea; personally I only see those on my iPad. They don't seem to render that way on the iPhone.

I see them on iPad and iPhone, but it depends on the size of the adblock. Only the bigger ad sizes seem to use the arrows. Now if only the ads were relevant, those big blue arrows might be clicked much, much more!

Thanks guys - not just me then. :) Strange how they appear on some sites and not others, despite being the same size ads.

Not exactly had my click dump, but had a small improvement. Still down about 50% on clicks today, despite page views are up. I'm losing the will to continue updating my site!

Holy moly! Day's almost half over and though impressions are normal, earnings are less than 5% of yesterday's total.

Clicks at 25% of usual yet impressions look normal.

Looks like some others are noticing the same. Either ads are way mistargetted today or more likely click stats are delayed for certain accounts (my guess and hope).

Absolute wipeout.

Have the people in Google (Adsense or Adwords) even posted anything about this mess-up or are they all out looking for love as per Larry Page's CEO note?

On the Adsense forum there are several discussions going now about "Traffic Quality" with Google Engineer Guillaume at the microphone.

Although the cases discussed are quite sad in terms of loss of revenue, it sheds some light on the new Adsense.
