anyone else notice this? Yesterday and today i have seen insanely low numbers on both fronts. In fact today i have 0 clicks, i average about 12 clicks for 2 dollars a day. Not much, but sitll, i odnt have one click. Impressions are down 75% and my webstats say they shouldnt be. Is it just me?

Not sure if it's just you... but all seems normal on my end.

Perhaps just an unusually slow day(s)?

Read through some of the other threads...everyone so far has had similar complaints.

No one seems to know what on earth is happening and Google's staying very quiet...a very ominous sign when a business will not, or cannot, answer any questions.

If you e-mail them all you will get is a canned response...try it if you like, it's the same one the rest of us keep receiving:-((

I know of no other open business sector in the world where there is not a competitor ready and able to jump into someone else's shoes when they make a mistake, just what is going on?

I can't believe that it's not worth their while or they have not looked at the technology after two years in existence!

I haven't... guess I must be the only exception?

That would be odd... but guess I'm glad that whatever 'problem' is occuring isn't reflected in my stats... and sorry to hear there's been trouble for others.

Think so BoBo...many have reported 25-30% reductions across the board for some reason. The day started off looking as though we may have been getting it back but it's crashed again:-((

Definately something wrong. Although I would hate to take a beating in AdSense earnings today, an full-fledged Ad outage could do wonders for non-GOOG stocks the day before the 'plex announces earnings! ;-)

That's a pretty broad (and untrue) statement...not everyone has had similar complaints.

I am finding a weird trend on my stats too...All day the stats have been increasing steadily and between 10 pm - 1 am (GMT) are peak times but the stats seem to curve off with less earnings and the CPM drops...

Not sure why this is..I wouldn't mind getting some software to track the clicks and see if what I see in the stats is correct.

I have had my best day in over a year. That may be to the fact that the topic I blog about is a sport which is about to make an official comeback in less than 48 hours. Ads have changed, prices have gone up, regular and die hard fans of that sport are happy. Me too!
It has been a long time coming.

All is well with my site. Impressions, clicks, CTR, eCPM all pretty much in line. In fact, the last 5 weekdays have been my best ever. Adsense always seems to hit points during the day where stats seem to lag behind. You can't really judge a day until the next morning when the figures seem to "finalize"

Hmmm......

Rodney, until the various posts within this thread, I feel fairly sure if you check several of the other postings in the past 24-36 hrs, that all were complaining about huge reductions.

If you're doing fine, great, however there are some very experienced, seasoned webmasters who have seen unbelievable turnarounds on Tuesday this week.

Yes, today may be great for one, but what is the statement which has been repeated so many times?

Do not put all your eggs in one basket.

For those of you with "down" statistics today, do you rely on a lot of Yahoo SE traffic? Their recent index updating is wreaking havoc for some. Check your page counts and keywords in Yahoo and see what is up.

My stats and earnings are normal, maybe slightly above average. 90% of my SE referrals are from Google. My Yahoo traffic, while always low compared to Google, seems average today.

I am sorry to hear others are having problems, this always worries me.

Sooh ... Yesterday is my biggest day ever. Today I'm at the bottom.

CTR down, eCPM down and so did the earnings. I can't believe that Adsense's earning is so fluctuate. One day you may feel on top, the next day you are at the bottom again.

Yahoo effect me some way but not much.

Yesterday was another terrible day, today is following in suit. The yahoo thing doesnt make sense for me either, my SERPs increased dramatically and my yahoo traffic has increased in the last 2 days.. i dun know whats goin on.
