I'm not usually one to complain about earnings, adsense has been pretty good to me usually. I don't have a large website, but it's growing fast. My page RPM has always been in the $4-$5 range, today, however, when i awoke, my page RPM was an ASTOUNDING $0.06. Yeah, you heard me, 6 lousy freakin cents per thousand. Anyone else seeing something similar on their end?

If nothing changed, give it some time, maybe it will recover soon.

smart pricing is on your way

How are your other stats looking? Low RPM can be the CPC, but also the CTR. Which has dropped?

Also had a red bar. CTR is very low today, CPC is normal.

CTR and CPC returned to normal a few hours after, though total page RPM was dog low all day for the rest of the day. Traffic was 150% above normal. Definitely not smart priced, or if I am, getting $1.50-$3.00 CPC while being smart priced is incredible ;)

Oh p.s. total page RPM for that day and the next day was around 0.14 for the entire day. I have no explanation for the dip. I have never had issues with RPM, CTR, or CPC. This was specific to 1 site (my primary site) only. Adsense account since like 2005 or so. Go figure...
