I have a business related site and get about 50-60% of weekday visitors on the weekend. My CPM is usually 30-40% higher on the weekends with no other noticeable changes other than # of visitors.
I ended up trimming some of my ppc advertising including filtering out sites from Adwords. After doing so I saw a return to normal eCPM levels, although my traffic volume was lower.
This lasted for about a week and then again eCPM dropped by about half, literally overnight from one day to another. It happened around the first of July.
I have recently recovered in the SERPs from Bourbon, and so my traffic levels are back to normal. Because of this I am seeing a recovery in earnings although my eCPM still remains significantly lower than normal.
Not sure what the reason is, but like I said, it literally happend overnight from one day to another. It's hard to imagine that something like this would happen as a result of market dynamics alone.
This month has actually been a spike for me. For roughly two months I was averaging out about $40 to $60 a day. This month has been averaging out $70 to $95 a day.

bad move cowboy.
It's getting old, but there's no other option but to forge ahead. Some day, maybe, just maybe, my earnings will go up and stay up instead of crashing after a long steady rise.
I wonder if possibly the advertisers have banned my site because it's costing them too much money? Or I've just worn them all dry?
It's certainly making me wish I was in the US so I could use YPN :P
