Really I am earning more per click now.

An average increase of 150% per click.

I am so stoked I have moved to the 10 cent per click range. I'm a playa now.

I just came here to look to see if anyone else saw the same thing. I would love it if this is a pernament thing, and not just a dump of previously held back clicks. Let's hope our epc doesn't go down throughout the day!

Mine is based on a few days data and I am being a bit sarcastic ;-)

Same here , yesterday epc was way up, ending inn a record day for me. Still waiting for the channel data to see what is going on. Is it possible that we could have moved one level up in the smart pricing ranking?

Friday highest ever day.

But I overworked Thursday the ad distribution system completely.

So as usual, I could not say what caused the change.

For every ying in the AdSense forum, there is always a yang... and unfortunately the yang is me. I have seen a horrible drop in EPC and came to WW to see if anyone noticed the same thing!

I was averaging over 10 cents for a long time, then it just dropped off last Thursday and has not recovered since. Now am more like 6-8 cents, yuck.

It's a bummer because my CTR is up and I would be doing well otherwise.

Just clarification.
I believe "ying" is "-"(minus) and "yang" is "+"(plus) in chinese. Maybe chinese members here can confirm this. Anyone?

I only joined AdSense a couple of weeks ago with a sports-related site (first post here, g'day!). The value of my clicks today jumped 1000% - yes, ten times as much. I'm guessing that the general category I'm in isn't so lucrative from a keyword point of view, but because I just recently created a subsection dealing specifically with sports injuries, my theory is that that must be why the numbers spiked. I'm eagerly waiting for the channel data to catch up to see if my guess is right. Other possible reasons include: (a) that my clicks today were four times higher than normal, or (b) I just added Adlinks to a few selected pages.

Holiday weekend beginning, and will probably have some impact....

Also, students returning from Spring Break.

Or simply a very messy system.

I have seen a further drop of 60% in EPC today. 2 cent clicks all over the place (down from an avrage of 13 cents p/c pre 1st March).

This is not a joke and Iím not laughing. :(

I too am seeing a big drop in earnings! Down 40% over the last 15 days and can't find a reason for it. I think last year this time it was also chaotic, so I'll just keep my fingers crossed!

I have lows at the weekend but usually scrape through- my visitors are nine to fivers so they seemingly have no interest in my site at the weekend. However, this weekend I've notice quite a large reduction on usual, which to be honest is quite disappointing- not the best way to start a month!

What I've mentioned is 1 or 2 weeks cycle in earnings.
It really looks like that G changing filters on clicks.
Last step was interesting - clicks dropped 2 times
but EPC rises 2 times as well.
but after 3 days EPC dropped back but not number of clicks.
Traffic stays absolutely the same.

without a doubt, this smart pricing thing is chaotic and unreliable. personally, while i know that advertisers bids fluctuate, I'm also quite sure that they don't account for such huge percentage swings. If Y can treat it's publishers better, smart pricing will be a coffin nail for adsense.
