Has anyone else noticed an unusually low CTR today?
I initially put it down to the first day of a major US widget trade exhibition however after checking my metrics some of my sites are way down on CTR and eCPM yet others are spot on their CTR and eCPM averages albeit with very low traffic.
Strange, very strange, must be the weather, somewhere, whether or not there is any strange weather anywhere:-)
PS Please give me a click dump to take away this headache!
So, just what did they do during the maintenance last weekend? Install a go even slower reporting script?
Did they actually have the maintenance last weekend?
No idea however it probably explains why the batteries are flat though, not enough sparks for my clicks!
In other words, no surprises (and no big, inexplicable day-to-day fluctuations): just the usual autumn lull before things pick up again in January.
CTR down big today, usually very steady.
That's exactly how I felt yesterday.
It's common for eCPM to fluctuate, although my impressions and CTR are usually fairly consistent. But yesterday, CTR was at 1/3 of normal until sometime in the afternoon, when it "jumped" to 2/3 of normal. It stayed there for the rest of the day. Today, it's back to normal.
Horrible metrics after a reasonably stable period.
Nothing unusual. The OP posted their clicks came back on Friday and were normal. The same thing that happens everyday at AdWords and on this forum.
One of my sites took a dive for a week then this week came back at double previous week ecpm. Another site is doing not so good. Some winners, some losers. Happens every day of every week of every month. Nothing unusual. Supply, demand, seasons, holidays, aggressive bidders, savvy bidders.
Keep building. Have a good weekend.
