Hi,
I wanted to start a new thread and ask did any one see increase in epcm recently. I did.

wondering if that is due to MFA/arbitrage cancellation by google.

I saw an increase fri/sat/sun, but it's hard to say for me, since some new products came out recently (over past two weeks) that impacted my site. I got a bump in traffic, but I did get a big bump in eCPM fri/sat/sun.

Guess I need to study it later this week, but it's difficult considering the product launches I mentioned.

If a lot of people saw big increases fri/sat/sun, then..

I've had a strong upward trend in the last month and a half or so (maybe longer), but it could easily be the result of seasonal demand in my category. Come November, my eCPM will probably be headed downhill for the winter.

CPM so far today is the highest this year.

Therefore, I expect my cancellation email any moment.

My CPC has hit a new low. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

Strong upward trend for a couple of weeks. On the 15th a sharp decline and up today. Impressions have been up.

In the past 5 days is anyone else seeing a noticeable increase in CTR combined with a noticeable decrease in CPC? The earnings are still pretty stable, they are just being achieved in a new fashion (as opposed to lower CTR and a higher CPC).

My site's EPC has been up slightly during the last five days, but eCPM has also been up somewhat this month. I don't attach any significance to either improvement, though: I'd expect increases at this time of year for my topic (as opposed to the decreases that I'd expect if my site's topic were skiing or ice fishing).

Over the lsast few days, my earnings (on average) are about double what they have been for the last couple of months. A stronger EPC by far is the biggest contributor, but ctr has improved somewhat also.

Increase in eCPM over the last 4-5 days. The ban doesn't go into effect until June 1st so it's doubtful that it's related.

I seriously doubt that it's related in any way.

eCPM up here - almost double. Could just be a spike though. These things are like reading tea leaves... :D

Friday (today) afternoon starts Memorial Day weekend, the "unofficial start of summer" in the US.

Monday is the actual national holiday, and national holidays are usually a very slow day for me. Frequently people take 4 days off and combine them with the national holiday to get a week off, so the rest of the days in a holiday week are usually a little slower for me as well.

Good luck to all.

I'm starting to get dizzy.

One day a page gets some of the lowest EPC and the next day the same page is getting very high EPC.

I think of mix of the ads must be jumping all over the place (haven't looked).

My bet is some folks are trying the contents network again and the ads texts have to get some history to sort out which ones should be showing most often.
