Our engineers are aware of this aggregate/channels reporting discrepancy and are working on resolving it as quickly as they can. I'll let you know when I know more.
Could you kindly ask your engineers to check if the channels/data problem could have affected smartpricing on some or any accounts?
I noticed a channels problem late last week and immediately after that got smartpriced. After CTR exploded unlike anything I'd ever seen, it looked as if it triggered a smartpricing algo to lower the EPC.
It's difficult to imagine channel data/CTR stats are completely unrelated to the smartpricing algo, and the timing of the glitch around the time of the income drop raises questions about smartpricing.
Compared with my aggregate stats my channel stats for this month start showing fewer clicks from the 13th. But from the 20th the drop is much greater.
Also from the 20th both Aggregate and Channel stats start showing far fewer clicks than I would expect. The CTR is over 50% down.
