Maybe this is why my traffic is down so much!

...65% of traffic to India was down, while services to Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Taiwan and Pakistan...

This does account for a lot of my traffic, but I haven't had Analytics hooked up long enough to know if they click much over there. I know that non-English ads tend to be low eCPM, less competition. I still get a lot of searches for the letter "t" today which is how Google translation search records on my logs.

Weather may have had an impact in the U.S. today. I called PayPal and their recording indicated they were short on staff because of the weather today.

There has also been massive power outages in the Northeast US this past week due to ice storms, I'm sure that has cut into internet traffic.
