I've been griping all day that my CPC is much lower then the past few days. Is anybody else experiencing lower traffic and sales due to the celebrations in the states?

It's always like that on holidays. The same thing on the advertisers' end.

Hmmm... I've been in Adsense for about 10 days now, and today is on pace to be my best day - by far! I've also done some changes with ad location and stuff, so maybe that's the reason. I'm hoping it is, because that will mean even bigger numbers come next week!

My numbers are about the same as last Friday's so far. I assume that I'm losing traffic and clickthroughs here in the U.S., but readers overseas may be picking up the slack.

Hmm, higher impressions, but lowest CTR and CPC so far... Perhaps americans click better...

Well, turns out there was a massive outage at my host, and late enough that nobody was there o fix it. It's back on now, 5hours later. Doesn't seem to be a power cut as the server wasn't down. Since none of hte machines at my hosts were available, it must'Ve been a network outage. Oh well :(
