I'm hoping April brings more than flowers, as March ended pretty poorly on my end. What's to come...

My earnings today are jumping around all over the place! Anybody else?

Not here, just dead. I can't understand why AdSense is no longer showing AdSense earnings from YouTube in the AdSense control panel. It makes no sense, epecially when they continue to show the clicks, yet have 0 as earnings. It just makes it more disheartening...and using Youtube analytics is a waste of time when I have three different channel logins...

I'm showing clicks. Earlier today a bunch of them showed 0 for earnings, then a little while ago, they all showed amounts, now they're zeroed out again. Weird.

@Play_Bach, that is weird. My earnings for "Adsense for hosted content" shows 19 clicks, zero earnings, but I received a notice yesterday when reveiwing stats, that as of today, adsense for youtube stats would only be available in youtube analytics (which won't load for me). Contenet stats haven't moved, but still show meager earnings...hmmm.

Earnings still jumping around. Never seen such erratic reporting behavior like this ever before.

Numbers are way down. Yesterday was a disaster, today is worse. Rankings however, seem to be stable. Don't get it.

April 2013 AdSense Earnings


Based on all the bitching I assumed the thread title was an April Fool's Joke :)

So far today, click count is the highest it's been since 2011. Meanwhile earnings are up and down like a yo yo. Crazy!

Yesterday click count continued to soar past all others. Highest since 2011. Unfortunately, about 50% of those clicks were worthless, so not sure what to make of it. Earnings up over the day before by about 5x (doesn't mean much since that day was a bust). All in all, a very strange AdSense reporting day.

What a bizarre holiday weekend.

In past years Easter has been one of my worst periods often being lower than Xmas. PVs were down however CTR was well up, like 150-180%, EPC was in its usual range with an eCPM 135-186% and Monday saw my highest day since February at 125.9% v 2013 average.

Confused? You bet I am after this weekend!

CPC just went off a cliff monday, 45% lower that saturday. Went straight down from saturday to monday.

Now whats the excuse google? Oh right.... just straight up stealing at this point.

Based on the new month, I'd have thought the moderator would unpin March from the top of the forum (ork ork)

so many webmasters around the globe discussing first quarter adsense earnings issues - i am really looking forward to see google revenue (adsense) for Q1.

It must be way lower than 2012 Q1 - if not - something really fishy is gong on.

Why?

Do you think only websites carry adsense?
Ever looked at Google.com and seen adverts? I have. I know a lot of "Adworders" who do not advertise on websites, but on the search engine only.

Percentage wise, Google also makes far more money from the adverts from the search engine than they do from sites.

so you're saying that all of sudden thousands of adworders have decided to advertise on google home page only? doesn't make any sense.
this is valid idea in a long term (as google is pushing more and more ads in their home page and that lowers publishers revenue. (above THE fold by all means))

yet, such a huge dive CTR/CPC happened recently (this year - since January).

i used to have 3x cpc i have now. My ctr is pretty much the same, as i am tweaking my ads all the time to maintain it.

i still make killing with adsense with XXX EU/daily, yet i do have so many questions about the #*$! they are pulling lately, yet so few answers.

sorry for my poor english

Sorry for your poor understanding how Adsense works, and where Google gets its money from.

I'd have to look at the numbers to be sure but it seems that when the month starts on a Saturday, Sunday, or Monday the first few days of the month are particularly bad. I suspect that a large number of advertisers set their campaigns to end on the last day of the month and they don't extend them till one or two business days into the next month.

My opinion (and previous statements on this subject) is based on facts. Yours?...

R0meo, I am not going to argue with you. I will wait for your theory on the "fishy" business and leave you open for libel.

And if you think Google only receives income from advertising, then you are on a different planet.

it's getting a little hot in here...

Something strange is happening thus far, and hopefully it will get straightened out. Is it a coincidence that the strange stats began when the YouTube earnings were removed from AdSense? Coding SNAFU perhaps? Hmmm...
