Ah one thing I think I am getting more foreign traffic that could be it too, that they pay less for foreigh traffic
Hard to make a pattern out of that. Could be weather, could be niche, could be Olympics, could be almost anything.
Since I have always considered adsense to be "free" money (that is, I don't live off of it, and I only budget it in the most conservative way) I am not particularly worried. Your mileage may vary.
I get a good earning day and that is followed by some dismal ones....oh well maybe next month.
my numbers being terrible am I the only one?
Define the ONLY ONE ;)
I'm having my best month ever.
Complainers tend to post more than people that are content, same with software and tech support as you never hear from happy customers. Hopefully AdSense will turn back around and you'll be content soon too :)

yes, that is normally the case. but in the last weeks i only see one record breaking high-earner after another in the posts. that is very significant and uncommon.
am I the only one?
no, you're not. my earnings are way down. still decent but since the middle of last year about -50%. steady traffic but slightly lower ctr and much lower epc, barely recovered in all the time. so i am supposed to be the only one whose top-earning month dates half a year ago :(
and i thought advertising spendings increase. dunno, maybe grow with the market visitor-count-wise..
I don't think demand is down, unless Google's advertisers are all watching the Olympics, because this is my busy season and affiliate bookings are running even stronger in February than they were in January (which was a record month).
