On my network of ten sites the AdSense CTR is very consistent. Say X% on weekends over the last 10 months. Now this weekend the CTR is down by 15% to 0.85X. Does any body see similar drop over this weekend?

I have seen strange figures all weekend however will reserve any further comment for the moment for three reasons:

1. International widget trade show in China
2. International widget trade show in Turkey
3. National widget trade show in USA

Plus this week another two reasons:

4. International widget trade show in Jordan
5. National widget trade show in UK

I can't imagine why my figures have gone haywire!

Roller Coaster ride for me. Revenues shot up the last 4 days of March, then bottomed out first few days of April.

Don't forget that if any of you are in the tourism business that Easter week marks the end of the southern "high season" with a similar drop in visitors.

Last year Easter was late April while this year it was March 27. If you compare last year to this year that may be the difference.

Our sites are holding firm in the serps but overall traffic is down about 20%.

The good news - next year Easter Sunday is April 16 so we will gain 3 weeks of 'high season'.

30% drop in net revenue over the weekend due to lower CPC.

I attribute it to the new quarter starting on Friday, and some advertisers haven't renewed their campaigns yet. With fewer advertisers over the weekend, average bid was lower.

Saw this a lot with banner ads through standard advertising networks.

Monday picked up a lot in traffic, but CPC was still low. I hope things will improve in the next couple of days.

My impressions are seriously down , CTR is down too.
It look like my site was down or something, that the Ads didnt show up on the pages. Because the past 2 days the stats were updated very slowly or not updated at all.
Fo instance I will have 50 impressions for the day and X clicks....and that's it.
I checked my traffic things are O.K.
