More of the same yo-yoing?

What crazy things have they planned for us this month?

Yesterday earnings ended up as the second highest day all month, go figure.

I agree netmeg, something is definitely wrong. Unfortunately, I have no idea what it is.
I would look at origins of traffic, and your placements.

If you are satisfied that your traffic is okay, then look at your placements. Make sure each one has its own custom channel, and see if there are any patterns to the take-backs - if you find it's usually one ad unit, maybe you need to make some changes there; make it more or less blended, or move it over a few pixels. But having that much lopped off every day is a signal something is really wrong.

Yesterday earnings ended up as being the lowest day of all times for me. XD

Yesterday was highest day of the month after a rough start. Today is outstanding so far. Still very low CTR but CPC is way up so its balancing out.

I doubt I'll be able to post here soon since whatever Google has denied it is rolling out has ripped three of my sites apart in the last few days.

Traffic levels are now at 20% of just two years ago and it's been made worse this year firstly by the new image search and then by all the utter fictitious garbage I see when checking their SERPs ... No wonder I use Bing to get answers.

My traffic is way down as well HuskyPup. Feels like Google is turning off the traffic spout more and more every day. The gloves are definitely off!

Yesterday was my worst day in history. Mother's Day eve? And today is slow as expected...praying for a Monday pick-up.

Today earnings are running about 3x yesterday (which is to say still lousy). Yesterday never got off the ground and might explain why today seems above average. Here's to hoping there's more still to come.

Today:
UP compared to the new low days of the present
but low compared to the usual daily earnings
checked an hour ago but right now can't see the reports
it stays on trying to load the page... nothing, blank

I'm beginning to think something major changed at Google starting on May 1, and not just for sites running AdSense. I say this because one of the sites I manage is an established brand that has had very stable traffic levels since 2007. On May 1, there was a significant drop and it has stayed there. Whatever is going on, it seems to be on Google's end.

It's true. Same situation in my case: big site from 2002 - hited on 1st of May and never recovered.

Trying to understand what's going on with AdSense is a pointless task right now. My UK earnings almost beat the USA Sunday with a CTR I haven't seen since the early days, even my CMS gallery had a good earning's day even though Page Views were at 50%.

Overall I ended up with my second best day of May and 8th best of 2013 ... Did someone mention Mother's Day?

Yesterday earnings were the second highest for May, while "ad requests" were the third lowest. Crazy.

Lotsa pageviews today, not many clicks so far. But I'm still way ahead of last year.

Lowest page views yesterday since June, 2003. Very low CTR, and well below average EPC.

Them's the breaks.

So far having my best earnings day in nearly three months, go figure.

Yesterday looked set to be complete rubbish, but turned out well. I'm back to only checking stats once the day is over.

Yesterday's earnings still there, yay. Whatever was going on with clicks being zeroed out over the course of the day earlier this month seems to have subsided somewhat. I'm still averaging only 1/4 of the daily click count I was getting in April, but the CPC is double, so earnings are about the same. Hope the upward earnings trend continues!

Glad I don't have any slide shows on my AdSense sites, cause THAT wouldn't confuse people... much.

I/m tired of certified ad networks taking up 30% of my ad space, with little to no clicks. And when clicked, the CPC is a joke! When G says they're bidding for ad space that may increase revenue, they don't mean on my sites. BLOCKED

Back on subject, garbage yesterday, today...who knows.

Good grief, my biggest channel is steaming along with a CTR of 0.00% .!.!.!

Clicks are non-existent, the USA is dead and being outgunned by Canada, WTF?

Lowest page views yesterday since June, 2003. Very low CTR, and well below average EPC.

Them's the breaks.

Even lower page views yesterday since June, 2003. Far out.

However CTR = GOOD, EPC = GOOD.

Panda Zoo still reigns supreme, them's still the breaks.

My Tuesday would have been awful without tablets/mobiles, they produced 31.4% of overall earnings.

Once again supposed US Page Views were way down, something's going on with those P twins and it ain't doing me any good whatsoever.
