April has been great so far. Breaking my personal records revenue records already.

It's not just you, but for me April has been terrible. I actually can't believe it've dropped so much so quickly

This first April weekend was awfull for me too.
After having a great March.
Monday is looking good, but my eCPM is down by 25% if March's average.

The best weekend in over 2 years. My traffic is up as well as eCPM.

March was disastrous for me, falling back to 10% of my december earnings. Things seem to lighten up a bit now. Google is moving the money bucket again...

April has not started well, down CTR lower than usual

April started low for me. About average over the weekend, but down a bit so far today...

So far, April is not so good. Last month was our best yet, but this month is 15% behind so far.

I'm with StuntasticAudi, April has started very well. It may be due to selective modification/removal of low EPC pages, prompted by Chris999's thread [webmasterworld.com].

March was good for me. I grew 18% with respect to Feb. April so far ~20% (compared to March). Today looks good, too. Can't complain. :)

Poor so far but I only have a small site running AdSense and I am a bit of an AdSense newbie! ;)

I noticed this too. March was terrible, about 1/3 earnings with the same traffic. So far Aprils earnings are 50% better than March's. Maybe Advertisers are opening the pockets again.

March was a little below where I expected, but so far April has been terrible.

Traffic to my site is down about 25%, but Adsense revenue is down about 75%.

Daily traffic is up 100% since 1st April, compared to March average. New to AdSense, so no real comparison to make.

All very unremarkable here. But with 2.5 days to go on, it is way too early to say much unless you are seeing something really drastic.
If The best 2 days in march happened to be on the first two days I would have thought things would be wonderful in march, equally if the two worst days had happened to occur in the first two days I would have been grumbling the month was a disaster!
My best day was actually over twice the money of the worst day!
So please give things a week before reading weird and wonderful trends into a month.

The initial question was if April has started well, and so people have the right to offer a response. The other option is don't read the thread :-)

Yesterday was very close to my best day ever, and I think today is going to be the best day ever, so yes April is starting out good to me :-)

My smile is very natural if you know what I mean...

The return of the weak weekends.

But this a phenomena, I experienced also last year.

Less difference between workdays and Sauturday Sunday in the winter, bigger differences in summer.

I think because of more outdoor activities.

The weekend was bad but today is great.

I have a very business orientated site so weekends are 70% of a weekday but this weekend was uber horrible.

I actually started to turn my Adwords campaign totally off on the weekends, it just isn't worth it.

I've been with adsense for couple months now and 2 days in April have been great. The most i have ever made in one day out of any month in the past.

I want to see the statistics for something like an average with only 2 days worth of information.

Seriously, I need a good laugh today.

Let's all bookmark this thread and come back and post in it two weeks from now, when we can draw some real conclusions.

April up by about 15 percent per day (20 dollars) due to improved epc. EPC improved because I refreshed my banned site list. EVERY site that has adverts or aff links goes straight in the filter.

April is starting off much better than March did, with record or near-record eCPMs. (eCPM is also about 50% higher than for April 1-3, 2005.)

Still, I know better than to draw conclusions from 2-1/2 days of AdSense reports.

I am not making conclusions for the whole month. I said that the month of April has started out good. Both days i made more money then any other day in the past of any month.

First weekend was way down from March, but today is looking pretty good. Maybe just a slow weekend.

Someone's always up, and someone's always down. It just seems to work that way.
