Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
CTR awful, number of visitors / page views unchanged really, price per click down loads across all sites... Yet again. 2 years ago I had 2 sites. Price paid per click was about 1 dollar. Now the average is about 10 cents... Just too many (bad?) sites displaying adsense.
There is already a thread about this further down the list!
Arming myself to the teeth as there is no room for failure with this month's start, sheesh.
So while my competitors are all out playing this weekend, Mr Bill is gearing up for war :)
Not going to worry until next week to see if the trend reverses.
A small sample I know, but if fewer Adwords accounts are functioning propery, it would explain the drop in Adsense earnings - there aren't the ads there for anyone to click!
Of the Adsense accounts I get to see the stats for (two UK based, one US based), earnings are down around 80% on two of them and 90% on one since the beginning of the month.
None of us can get any acknowledgement from Google something might be wrong.
The site always suffers on weekends and summers at any rate. I always experience a large bump upwards in September.
I have noticed, however, that the quality and depth of the ad inventory has suffered somewhat over the last 2 days. This probably explains why the CTR on the site is fairly weak today.
