Yesterday never got off the ground. Odd thing though, the few clicks that came in were split between IBAs and Contextual with IBAs blowing away Contextual by nearly 3-1! And to think I once had a problem with IBAs? Well, not anymore.

Each day lower eCPM! This seems to be the rul this month!

we are halfway through the month and my earnings are already more than half of my best ever month. So if earnings continue as they are in June, I am going to completely obliterate my record earnings for one month. My advice to anyone who is experiencing lower earnings would be to make a few subtle changes to the layout. Start off by concentrating on one ad unit and see what happens. I simply put a skyscraper in the left-hand column above the menu on a lot of my articles and it has made the world of difference. I made sure that I was showing both images and text. I have also come to realise that even though a lot of articles state that block units between the heading and the content are high-performance, this is certainly not the case with me. I think the fact that many of my articles I'm now more uncluttered has made a difference. Sometimes a big ad unit between the heading and the content doesn't really look that good

7:00am and earnings have nearly met all day yesterday, yay. Hope there's more still to come, and they stick!

Sorry Mentat, I'm as baffled as anybody to see numbers like yesterday. Same as on Jun 3, I had to go back two years to see earnings as high! Crazy. Hope it lasts!

Would have had a good day if my hosting company wasn't being attacked by outside forces, laying all websites to waste for a good 7 or 8 hours.
If it wasn't bad enough two of my websites are hit by DOS attacks - same files being hit every second of the day by unique IPs, relentlessly. I just rename or remove the targets, so they just hit upon 404 errors.
Here's to hoping for a good day!

Barely any update this morning - some of the lowest page views and clicks I've ever had, yet the highest EPC meant it was a better than average day. I don't trust the stats anymore.

I don't either. It's been a long time since they seemed to bare any semblance to reality. Following yesterday and it's best earnings in nearly two years with today and it's frozen stats makes it very difficult to take AdSense reports too seriously. Too bad there's a financial component that keeps rearing it's ugly head!

Extraordinary... MY BEST TIME OF ALL TIME... lower total pageloads than last week.

Went all-text ads. Blocked some poor performing categories.

I just go by the actual payments I'm given now, not the stats Play_Bach. The latter is designed to mess with your mind.

Littlecubpanda - how long ago did you change to text? Normally it takes a few days to see results? I tried text only once - resulted in a lot more clicks, but much lower EPC.

Me neither, they don't correlate whatsoever with Statcounter, Awstats, Webalizer nor my raw logs ... Average earnings now half of only a month ago, well, I suppose that could be correct since PVs are now down 60% since the "new image" debacle intorduced at the end of January ... I've got some fantastic graph images of that fall, even a downhill skier would be scared!

When I started reaching 10 earnings in one day I consider that to be reasonably good. I don't bother looking at stats or anything, if I don't reach 10 that I don't consider it to be particularly good, anything over 10 in one day is a good day as far as I'm concerned. Thankfully, every single day this month has been well over so I'm quite happy. However, my #*$! server is down at the moment, time is money as far as I'm concerned.

@ zarathustra2011

I changed over to all text about four or five days ago. It does take some time to "kick in", but it's definitely helped.

There were days with image-only or image-text (on all my sites) where it felt like getting a click might never happen again. The CPC has also been really high for some reason on these text ads.

Ironside, I went from over that a day to being lucky to make 50% of what I was making since March. Traffic hasn't changed much, in-fact a slight increase, so I don't understand why.

I haven't noticed a massive increase in traffic to my website, so I can only put it down to getting the positioning of the ads right. I've also noticed that I've been earning more money from individual clicks, mainly from units that are above the fold, i.e. my skyscraper units on the left-hand side. My advice to anyone would be to work out which pages on your website received the most traffic, make sure that you get the AdSense right on these pages and you may well reap the benefit.

Been a weird last 7 days; reporting has been really delayed. For example, last night with only 3 hours left in the day it said I had X clicks and checking this morning the final total was 3 times higher. And I can tell some of yesterday's clicks have spilled into today's intra day reporting. The days when reporting was really delayed Sunday/Monday also had CPC prices only a 1/4 of what is normal. And of course this morning CPC back to normal.

The past two days have been two of the worst ever. Lowest CTR in a long time - it was so bad yesterday I felt surely there must be problems with the reporting of the stats, but hardly any improvement at the end of the day. I had a reasonable first half to June, so just hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

Strange stats lately here too. Last few days have been stuck most of the time with very little click count and earnings movement all day.

It's like playing slot machines. Sometimes I awake and hit jackpot, and other times those stats barely move. Very odd. Still waiting for some huge clickdumps or superclicks to make up for it!
Today is another odd reporting day. EPC is reading extraordinarily low - 95% of the time, it leaps up 2 or 300% by the end of the day.
