I've been reading this forum since 2006 and actually just registered now, as I really wanted to reply to this thread. I have been following the Adsense Reporting delays and decrease in ecpm threads daily.
I've been focusing on better Ad placement and best color combination for CTR and ecpm on my blog as I did not want to accept these changes in earnings. Ever since November it has been a roller coaster.
During November I experienced a drop in my average ecpm, ever since then it bounces from day to day.
I know fluctuation is normal, but there where such bad days with ecpm below $1 that made me think to take Adsense off all togther.
Then comes a day, when I think, YES..now you got it right.. Nice CTR and ecpm. But what do you think happens the next day? I will have one of the worst days ever.
I tried the channel reset that I had from a thread here somewhere, I turned off Google Certified Ad Networks which seemed to help for a couple of days.
Everytime when I seem to have improved my Ads and things go well, the following day I get smacked on my forehead by Google: "Duhhhhh"
That's what you thought, here is your sucky ecpm for the day.
Yesterday was the worst day since I started this blog.
So I don't know what is going on, but this needs to change.
