Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Huge drop in traffic = huge drop in Adsense income!
BTW, Go England Go.... :)
Perhaps everyone is doing their surfing before the next match in half an hour...
Yep, that's me and I'm chasing off to get some ice cream now:-))
Today's earnings have more than doubled during the two matches in the last five hours and my metrics now look like an absolutely "normal" Friday.
I give up, I'm off out for a beer to see what the full 24 hours shows me in the morning.
Not bad, 8 goals in the first two matches:-)
Yesterday ended up with what I can only descirbe as a "normal" day. Has the recent turmoil begun to settle? Let's hope so.
The best offer I've seen today is one of my local bars offering good beer at £1.25 pint until the first goal is scored!
fun for six minutes, hehe.. :D
I'm in Germany and I hope Germany won't make it to finales.
sorry huhufrufru, but as german fan i certainly welcome if they make it as far as possible.
but only if they win the cup i would generously waive a substantial amount of my adsense earnings ;)
I made yesterday a comparsion statistic with
The comparsion statistic shows me, that my distance to webhits.de remains nearly the same, even I come some % closer to the webhits statistic.
It's a cubicle effect
In total 45% less than the average Saturday
30% less than the worst Saturday in the last 3 month
The World Cup is as broad as it is long.
Absolutely therefore do I surmise that my visitors are not the least bit interested in football?
Saturday saw a completely "normal" day's earnings for me. Apart from the Rodeo on Saturday 13th May followed immediately by my highest-ever Sunday, it would be impossible to tell from my metircs that anything was happening.
Today, Sunday, already there has been the British Grand Prix, Athletics Grand Prix, TT Races, Holland v Serbia, French Open Tennis final and guess what?
My metrics are "normal"!
Ok, so I'm not a multi million pages a day web site however, fingers crossed, I do not see any impact of any of the above.
Markus007's statistics would make interesting comparisons since he has so many page views and would notice any significant movement.
Would it be fair to say that on any one given day in the world that a major sporting or news event is, or could be taking place, and that we all derive a little bit of comfort when we see other sites reporting downward trends that just happen to fit in with our own results during that newsworthy occurrence?
in fact what am I doing online.
It's nearly too hot to be outside...plus you're counting the shekels:-)
The stats show 3 Saturday in a raw.
Firday and Sunday had so low traffic, some other Saturdays in the last 30 days had more traffic.
This was combined wiht low CTR, EPC
and since long time not seen low eCPM.
