A snail passed me many hours back while I am stuck here waiting for a click dump.

All other stats normal, actually other non Google ads the same site are doing fine..

How's your Friday?

I hear ya - running about 50% below normal across all statistical categories - that is compared to yesterday. I'm glad to see someone else post on this.

Nothing out of the ordinary. A low amount of traffic as usual for me.

Average for how July has been so far which is not that great. My first full month was in May, it was awesome. June was down about 25% revenue and so far July is about 10% lower than that.

Of course the long holiday weekend was a large part of this month.

As far as today, the eCPM is quite a bit lower than two days ago (that was the really slow messed up day but click dump near end of day made up for it.)

I'm always unsure why eCPM takes a nosedive. I am lucky and do not get that many MFA's on my site, my ads are mainly competitors selling the same thing that I do (different brands, etc. but same basic stuff).

One day eCPM is good, the next it isn't. Who knows.

i thoughy yesterday was my lowest, but that was before i looked into today's stats.
for last two days huge diff in what google is reporting and what is reported by my tracking programme. It was same story day before too, but in the end had a huge click dump, no luck for toeay or yesterday so far.

Indeed, slow stats again. I guess they will catch op again later today.

Yep I'm seeing about 1/2 as well. Interesting side point though and that is I remember taking a survey last month from google and one of the questions was how much revenue comes from Adsense as a percentage of total revenue.

off about 40% here. CTR is off about 25%. I'm getting regular updates, they're just not very big. Hopefully stats are slow today, if not it's a pretty bad day.

same here - updates are regular but about 40-50% below normal

I've never seen a day like this - usually days when stats are slow means the stats stick on a number for a few hours.
Today updates are happening but the numbers are real low

I've checked my listings in the search engines and there are no significant losses.

Hoping for a substantial click dump before end-of-day but worried

It looks pretty normal here, but it's too early to tell. I never draw any conclusions about the day until 1 or 2 a.m. the next day (Google time).

Low traffic + Low click value = Low Earnings

A snail passed me many hours back

yeah the snail's still crossing in front of me... but you know what? he brought 3 humongous clicks so that even though I should be 25% down with the slowdown, I'm OK...
thanks snail...

Everyday has been slow for me since the 27th of June. I have to thank Google for removing my sites from the main page of the search results. I just hope it comes back real soon.

Agreed, it's slow. But Friday's tend to be slow, especially in the summer. Still within my average of normal, although on the low side of normal.

Friday will be over in a couple of hours (Google Mean Time)

EPC is normal
CTR is normal
eCPM is good
Earnings little below normal but as MB said it is expected.
