Low day yesterday here too, and today clicks haven't moved ALL DAY.

This is shaping up to be the best week ever. I removed an ad from a page, now two instead of three, that boosted CPC. Another site I added vertical ads to and that boosted CTR massively. Vertical centered ads look ugly, but it forces the visitor to pay attention to them.
Traffic is up a bit, better SE rankings, but not by much. Mostly I think better and correct ads are being served. Maybe it takes a month or two for things to "settle in", I don't know.

Whilst I need the money, not sure I could face the prospect of making my site look cluttered for the sake of ads. It's always been a big turn off for me when I visit other sites.
Past two days, CPC has diminished.

Interesting, decent week breaking the low trend that was becoming the rule... Until yesterday! I updated some sites with new info and yesterday not so good numbers, funny. It worked nice all the days without updates.

Had a 8/10 day yesterday which is about the best day of July. A step in the right direction.
| 10:11 pm on Jul 19, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Two consecutive days of improvement. I wonder if this has anything to do with it?
|A Good Panda... Google confirms a softer, better targeted update... |

Is your traffic better?

Best Friday of all time.
| 10:35 am on Jul 20, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Another horrid Friday here. So far, July is down nearly 50% from June. Things do not look good.
| 11:11 am on Jul 20, 2013 (gmt 0)|
EPC three times higher than normal at the moment. Already made 50% of what I made for the whole of yesterday. I suspect they will either halt earnings for the rest of the day so I end up with something mediocre, or they're simply making adjustments for a few of the very poor days I had in the past week.

Friday was a 10/10 for me! W00t! Today however, I can only hope it's stuck because I'm looking at about 4/10 right now.

Best Saturday EVER, BUT...
According to StatCounter AND Hitstats, I had about 600 pageviews MORE than what Adsense indicated for the end of the day. I noticed around 9pm everything just FROZE, and I figured it would get updated...
It didn't update. Nothing updated for three hours, then the day ended. I'll check tomorrow, but this is pretty disturbing.
| 7:36 am on Jul 21, 2013 (gmt 0)|
I checked again -- it is WAY off compared to my historical records, nothing like this has ever happened (where the money earned line passes so far through the total pageviews, which are so abnormally low).
| 8:14 am on Jul 21, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Yesterday was a brilliant day for me, but then I can't help thinking it's just Google catching up after some poor days.
| 12:43 pm on Jul 22, 2013 (gmt 0)|
The lousiness continues. Yesterday was another terrible AdSense day with a really low click count and earnings. Looking at the monthly report, July 5 and July 16 stand out with much higher RPM and click count numbers than the rest of the month. Anybody else see spikes on these two days? If so, that could help support the theory that AdSense periodically combines several daily totals into a single day.

Two great days, and now today sucks. I reckon they must have figured I was doing too well, so rather than take it back, they just "freeze" my clicks and reduce my EPC for a few hours.
| 4:44 pm on Jul 22, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Weird, I removed all the ads from mobile version of my sites temporarily and it was a great yesterday despite of it (I'm getting good clicks on mobile) so I wonder how the numbers would have been with the ads.

Approaching gold old days revenue. Got a huge boost in traffic after Google update last week. Seeing revenue numbers that I thought were long gone.
Will enjoy while it lasts.
| 10:41 pm on Jul 22, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Last eight days have been a 30-40% increase in revenue.
| 5:43 am on Jul 23, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Another successful day... but I have this weird suspicion Google is dispensing "clicks" in 30 minute intervals... maybe I'm just paranoid.

OK WTF does someone keep killing off the PIP threads? They may be silly, but they're harmless. I object.
| 1:04 pm on Jul 23, 2013 (gmt 0)|
I'm of the same mind, Netmeg. I suppose it's all part of this brave new world of ours, wherein everything we do can be tracked, traced, archived, assimilated and dispensed to whatever governmental or corporate body wishes to manipulate it, but WE CAN"T TALK ABOUT IT.
Enough is enough. Down with the tyranny of the data masters! PIP, PIP, hooray!

Shhhh.... we aren't allowed to talk about mod actions either! :)

It was a good week, almost 10 days of almost decent income but yesterday... again low, really low.
| 3:30 pm on Jul 24, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Only halfway through the day, but having an absolute train wreck of a CTR today. Second lowest of the year at this point. Traffic itself is great and I know this is Google's fault, since the CTR is poor across approaching 50 sites.
| 5:14 pm on Jul 24, 2013 (gmt 0)|
For the same click, my earnings are low.. it's about 60% of what it used to be. Is it because of advertiser's bidding change during this summer time? Quite don't understand why.
| 5:21 pm on Jul 24, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Click reporting is way off (frozen for about 4 hours this morning), and EPC is reporting extremely low. Something's changed, or the stats are due an update.

| 7:19 am on Jul 25, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Ad requests yesterday were the second highest all month, but click count and earnings came to a grinding halt six hours ago and haven't budged since. Hopefully there's just some validating going on and the "big bucks" are on their way! (yeah, right...)
| 8:23 am on Jul 25, 2013 (gmt 0)|
My impressions were fine. CPC okayish, but CTR bottomed out completely. Hours with no clicks at all, and this morning is starting the same. Hopefully it is just validating, because I've just had my worst day in years.
