I feel that rj87uk is right.
I usually see this kind of behavior on February, when Google tests new changes, new policies, and screws most of the reports and earnings.
But this year, it had 2 testing months. May feels totally out of character. My bet is that mid May, it is going to get better; yet, this month's earning projections seem terrible.
