I mainly target the Content network. Since Friday conversions have been DISMAL. After the update I was getting 1.58% which is good for my product.... Since Friday it has been like 0.25% to 0.50%

Just curious to see if anyone else is seeing something similar?

Have you checked your logs to see if visitors are coming from different sites since friday?

My conversion rate is higher for Content vs. Search.

I have been tracking the refers - and watching which Content sites aren't converting

(Note: I am both a publisher and advertiser)

Can anyone recomend a good way to parse your logs to see what sites you getting shown on in the Content network.

Urchin just says the referer is [pagead2.googlesyndication.com...]

But in the logs I can see the actual page although it is is pretty garbeled up.

I need to know exactly where my traffic is comming from including conversion data.
