Just checking to make sure it's not just me. I'm off about 60% right now.

The last time I looked, it did seem to be a little behind... but I've accepted the fact that it's just an occurance that happens from time-to-time.

Likely nothing to be concerned about. (unless it happens for days) :)

Slow here in AZ too.

Either the googleboob is slow on pushing the update button today

or

the 113 degree heat on the cables on the side of the house is slowing down my data transfer.

Anybody got a island or mountaintop in reasonable weather for sale? Must have broadband!

It's been like this for about ten days now but i kind of like it, i'm most active on internet late at night and it got kind of boring logging on after 90 % of the day's traffic had already breezed through, now i see delayed updates making my constant checks on adsense more dynamic lol

Ok Ok I admit it, i'm a sad case!

I see normal (or higher) impressions but the ctr has been dismal for the last two days. Looks like the targeting is getting worse.

Hobbs... make sure Ann's discovery is part of the divorce settlement...

Gawd... Adsense is moving slower than a snail in slow motion today...

Yuck! What an absolutely diabolical Friday off the back of a cracking Thursday.

Page impressions and EPC were "normal" yet CTR and eCPM were easily the worst of 2006.

Earnings were as bad as July 1st and 2nd and make the 3rd and 4th look positively bouyant!

The overall earnings for the week have been acceptable however a daily 50% swing in the metrics is unbelievable.

Anyone else see the same?

inkywinky,
Ann is a well respected forum old timer.
Now please don't go about pissing her off when she's about to reveal something that can multiply our earnings!

Originally posted by eeek "I see normal (or higher) impressions but the ctr has been dismal for the last two days. Looks like the targeting is getting worse".

Yep, the CTR has been quite bad the last two days. The only part I am not sure about is the targetting generally. Its still OK in most part. However, couple of my pages that had vey high CTR has been getting very untagteed ads for about two weeks now. I am not sure why this is because they had perfect ads for quite a long time.

Actually, my 1st and 2nd were really quite good. The 3rd was very normal and I was braced for the 4th being logically dismal (and it was).

Yesterday (Friday the 14th) was nowhere near as GOOD as the 4th and today is showing little improvement!

Some of this downturn in activity, I think, is being caused by a lot of very rude people out enjoying summer activities and not clicking on ads and buying things as they very well should be! ;-)

Thank you Hobbs,
The steam was really starting to rise when I saw your post I calmed down a little.

to Inky:

No, I am not a Google mole! And wouldn't be if they asked...I don't play those games.

Yes, my websites have stood the test of time and are quite high in the serps. Still, my bookmarks and links to me do account for almost as much as the serp visitors.

I just depend on the listings for NEW surfers and no I would not go under without Google but I have enjoyed the income they enable me to make with adsense so like everyone else in here I try to find ways to overcome adverse conditions.

I am over 70 years old (but not senile) have 4 Grandchildren plus one Great Grandchild :), been on the web since 1997 but could survive very well on my other income if I never touched another computer. Living alone makes the websites a good hobby to have as I can work on them whenever I choose. :)

Thank you both.

I, as a general rule like all who post in here. Though some have very few manners. :)

Now....Anyone noticing any slow updation today?

Ann, I can only hope that my low CTR and low eCPM today are a slow updation problem, lol

OptiRex -

Are you sure you are not looking at MY AdSense stats by mistake because you perfectly described my last 2 days. Yuck!

How in the world can CTR and eCPM fall through the floor like that? I'm guessing it is the targetting. Or maybe we are getting a flood of new MFAs on the content side off the back of the recent AdWords debacle?

I just don't know anymore.

Yes, the last 3 days' stats (today included) are abysmal. Low CTR, Low CPC. I was doing fantastically this month until Thursday.

I can't explain the horrible CTR that I am experiencing now. Maybe its bad targetting, if it is, it just goes to show why people should not become too reliant on Adsense and should really have a day job. There are too many factors out of your control.

Now....Anyone noticing any slow updation today?

Due to incredibly low impressions and low clickthrus, I thought adsense was just slow in updating. Then I checked my own tracking software and it was the same. Must be just a slow summer day....
