Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
For example, one page so far today has had 5 clicks on it - and that has returned a total significantly less than what it usually does.
Anyone else noticed anything "odd" - or am I just as paranoid as the other people who post who about "lost earnings due to low click return"?
My guess is that some advertizers take this into account and cut back on bids, if not cancel there ad runs for the weekend.
We just now came back into town from a shopping trip out on the edges of the metroplex and the outbound freeway was about as full and slow as it could get. Of course here in Minnesota, that means folks were heading for the lake cabin and a weekend of fishing, water sports etc.
(Not that this applies to me, but..) What about websites whose content is very much geographically orientated, i.e. whose ads would produce the "best" revenue ads for the country they were designed, (regardless of the fact that diferent ads would appear on that web page when viewed in another part of the world)?
Although US advertisers may take up the bulk of advertising - this "long weekend" principal may not apply?
I tried Adlinks on Day One when they first came out - above the fold, in a nice prominent position - and didn't have any impact whatsoever - I may revisit them again.
Anyway, clicks did improve by the end of yesterday, although the overall revenue was still below average. We'll see whwt the rest of the weekend brings.
(It's also a Bank Holiday weekend - Monday - here in the UK, so the whole Adsense scene may be completely dire! ;) )
It's probably going to remain "bad" all weekend Ann. According to other Adsense gurus I've talked to recently over the last few hours, this is not unusual for a weekend - and even more commonplace for the USA Memorial Weekend and a UK Bank Holiday Weekend combined.
I'm guessing it'll start to pick up again next Monday/Tuesday.
I'm glad I didn't Give Up My Day Job For Adsense quite yet ;)
