Serious question - are you complaining about the drop from 37 cents to zero, or the drop from some unknown figure to 37 cents?

Either way, I am not seeing anything unusual this weekend.

It is perfectly normal, don't worry.

Maybe tomorrow you will have $0.37 extra to cover back today lost.

Look at weekly or monthly earning, don't just check day by day or even hour by hour.

Any chance that your site was down?

My sites were down for over 4 hours due to a huge outage at LiquidWeb this morning. It hurt a lot and I'm sure that I missed around half of what might have been.

That's not unusual. It's because you don't have enough visitors.

Well, your earnings dropped, but you DID manage to pull several people's legs! Good one.

the drop from $0.37 to $0.00

That's not a drop - its a barely perceptible fluctuation.

Its just $0.37, you are already worried, how much more if you are earning $8 or more a day, then one day your stats shows $0 earnings.

Concern over such a sum, it seems to me,
Is like selling an ice cream or three
By starting a business in desert lands
And setting up stall in the remote sands.

A nomad might pass and buy your produce
But the next day your sales might reduce
Cause in the desert there ain't many prospects
Just lots of irritating little insects.

To have a viable business you'll have to move
To somewhere that your nerves will sooth;
That is, a place heavily populated, with lots of sun,
Where loads of sales of ice creams will be done

A visitor here or a visitor there
Will take you stats up, down and nowhere.
Of real concern is the traffic dearth
Which shows your site is hardly beyond birth.

My earnings once dropped by over $200
But I didn't sweat in any of my collars.
The more traffic you have the bigger your swing
Though you can never be certain of a single thing.

My apologies. I just couldn't believe you were that concerned about that small an amount, or even that you really felt that it was a meaningful change.

When the amounts are that small, the numbers of clicksa are small, and changes of that order can fall within totally random fluctuations.

I thought you realized that and were winding people up. Since you didn't, I'll just say, you really don't need to worry about a change like that.

On my site, early in the day, I may see 0 earnings. I may see a few dollars. But that's not predictive of the rest of the day, or the rest of the week.

I suggest, quite seriously, that you look at the data on your site in chunks of a week or longer, which will help to smooth out the variations that are just chance.

And my reply was a serious reply, though expressed in humour. With your site volumes you are trying to read way, way too much into your data. You need to generate lots more traffic.

It is the law of small numbers. Right now you have few clicks and probably relative few impressions. It comes across as very unstable at lower levels.

Even if you increase your best days to 10 times what you have now, you will still see fluctuations that put you close to zero.

As you get more traffic though, you will see things become more stable. Your range of variation might be the same, but when seeing stats and seeing your revenue range from $100-$110 a day instead of $0 to $5 a day is a big difference mentally.

If you are concerning yourself with the difference between .37 and .00 you will have a tough time as you grow. Trust me though, if you keep working at it you will look back and laugh at having worrieed about this.

Yeah, I gotta back dibbern2 up on the collars line - just not up to WW standards. Also - where's the internationalization?

My earnings once dropped by over 200 US
But little concern did I feel I confess

Let's try and bring the prose up a bit OK people?

>> Let's try and bring the prose up a bit.

A good start would be reading WW's requirements of titles. "What happened?" gets people drawn into a thread they would normally not dream of visiting. Please take the time and trouble to title your threads appropriately and save everyone entering your thread just to find out what it's about. Thanks.

Ahem. In "international English" one asks "where's the internationalisation?".

I understand when you are starting out a drop from $00.37 to 00.00 seems like a very big drop

many webmasters here forget the first time they earned anything from thier web business and how exhilerating it was and also how bad it felt to earn nothing the next day

So here goes with the amount of traffic generated to earn 37cents as others have said the traffic is not enough to say each day you will earn the same amount statistically. Try to look at it weekly or monthly and if your overall earnings increase from 1 month to the next you are succeeding in improving your business

There are times when webmasters see a click worth $5.00 they are few and far between so you can not take it that all clicks will be worth $5.00 also there are times when 20% of your visitors may click on an add

You must try to take a longer view and the more traffic you have the less deviation should occur .

Congrats on your 37 cents and I hope it continues to grow and if you have 4 days with no earnings it does not mean anything except a standard exceptable deviation

Yeah, I think alot of people that post this stuff get like and average of 10-visitors a day and get worried when it drops down to 2 for one day. When you have samples that small you are going to have wild swings percentage wise. It's statistics baby.

I think I'd find more loose change daily on sidewalks outside grocery stores than $0.37

To all of you who are cracking jokes about 37 cents, he doesn't care about the money, he cares about his performance. I assume he was receiving 37 cents a day on average, so obviously he cares about the performance drop, not about the measly 37 cents.
