Direction: DOWN 400% average vs. March

So each day you owe Google three times as much as what Google used to owe you each day last month on average? Here we thought Google was making money off of charging advertisers when their evil plan was really to get publishers in debt.

Either that's a typo or someone who just doesn't get math. Down 100% means you make no money at all anymore.

For the rest of you, are these numbers just plain earnings, earnings per click, earnings per ad impression, or earnings per page view (on pages with AdSense ads that you haven't modified since last month)? That can make a huge difference.

I assume, as I think do the others, that these numbers represent changes to the bottom line take-home revenue from sites that otherwise have not changed. Also, I think we can assume the 400% is an error of some sort.

Thank you all for posting, keep it up!. Hopefully with the small info disclosure we may see a pattern. Someone had a good suggestion for a graph or spreadsheet.

* Revealing Google "impressions" would be a violation of the AdSense TOS, I believe.

Actually, if you have Adsense on all your pages, your page views should more or less equal Adsense impressions. Disclosing your page views is none of Google's business I believe.

Of course, not everyone has Adsense on all their pages...

Revenue down by 2/3rd's from March, starting last Friday, for some reason. And March was our best month yet, the one that made me say, "hey, we can go somewhere with this". Thanks for nothing, Google.

The ads are targetting well. The site is informational.
