I've had a bad week as far as CPC. Really bad. Hope it's just due to advertisers being on vacation.

Horrible EPC here on all my major sites since June 28th. Went from $0.60+ to $0.07.

The usual suspects are probably the cause. (ie; smartpriced, MFAs, Advertisers running out of $ - that time of the month, the boogyman, etc.)

My friend's account is doing $0.15.

How is everyone else doing?

Yes the last three days have been the worst I have seen for eCPM. About half of what it is normally.

With half of the traffic lost from Google Search and the eCPM way down, I will be lucky if I can earn about a dollar an hour this weekend!

it's good to hear that i'm not the only one with lousy epc the last few days! it's been a disaster.

i signed up for some affiliate marketing, hoping to take up some of the slack from ypn and adsense.

i've been seeing too many advertisers complaining about how advertising on the content side of the fence with adwords is a ripoff, so they stopped doing it... they put their adwords money on search instead?

there has also been a decline in keyword prices over the last few months, so the writing is on the wall... publishers need to diversify to protect themselves.

the last 3 days is a disaster for me. Less traffic and low click value. Eventhough I have less traffic but the # of clicks is normal, but nahh very low click value.

My EPC for the last three days has been slightly higher than the average for the month to date, or about the same as for May. Overall earnings are down a bit, though, probably because of a traffic hit from the World Cup.

LastMinute.com is predicting that "the travel market will be up 60 to 70% once England are out of the World Cup," according to an e-mail that I received today. That percentage sounds high to me, but I have no doubt that the World Cup has had an effect on European and especially on British Web browsing and travel booking.

I am sure it has nothing to do with the latest update (June 27) by Google:-)

I know it's been said a bunch already, but I too have been experiencing a lull in the adsense CPC roller.

Seemed to get pretty strong about a week ago, but then the last three days have been miserable.

I agree with the consensus, we should see a rise when advertiser's budgets increase.

However... depending on your niche, your CPC may not increase until the summer is over. One of our niche's CPC is always low between now and labor day.

On the other hand, the low CPC could be an effect of not getting outside enough during the summer.

Thank Goodness its over. A lousy ending to a lousy month (bad drought here) of low earnings. Earnings, like the rain, was hard to come by, LOL.

I guess it is just the season, I can only hope it continues to rise as it has the last 3 or 4 days.....Oh well.
