Well, publishers seem to have a lot to say the past few days about what their stats are doing and what their earnings look like. It is sometimes hard to get a true picture when there are so many complaints (classic can't see the forest for all the trees situation), although I have seen a few "best day ever" posts here and there (and probably more who don't want to admit it!)

This is a simple survey to kind of see what all publishers are seeing, please keep all commentary about what you see in one of the other (many!) threads. For this thread, just comment on the last three days, choosing one of these for each day Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday:

Record High
Higher than average
Average
Lower than Average
Record Low

And yes, I'll start :)

...
Monday: Lower than average (albiet slightly lower)
Tuesday: Lower than average
Wednesday: Lower than average (although might sneak up to Average once it finishes updating).
...

Remember, please keep commentary to another thread :) Hopefully we will see some sort of a trend emerging.

<Resists temptation to comment>

17th (Much)Higher than average
18th Lower than average
19th Higher than average

I'm using the July average, not longer term.

Monday average
tuesday below average
wednesday even worse

It seems that every time I do something to target the ads better and get a decent increase, smartpricing realises I've got one over it, and slaps me hard and removes the extra! I just don't think Google wants me to earn money:(

Comparing with the averages for the last six weeks or so and taking into account the day of the week:

Monday: average
Tuesday: slightly above average
Wednesday: way below average

Which is no real pattern. Of course, if you compare with the averages for the last six months the pattern is a lot clearer:

Monday: way below average
Tuesday: below average
Wednesday: way, way below average

:(

19th - Good (10% higher than average)
20th - Disaster (1/3rd of average)
