Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
As you know, you will not be able to access your account during this maintenance, but your ad serving and reporting will not be affected.
Sorry HP, no.
Oh heck, I'll wait and see what happens for the rest of the day however my EPC is at its year's lowest, CTR is -20% and eCPM -50%!
My logs are showing completely normal metrics.
With all my suspected recent "lost data", a couple of days like this and ASense will be removed. I really am getting fed-up of this mismanagement.
'course, we're apparently about to get a tornado
Oooops, batten down the hatches!
I certainly hope a mega click dump happens overnight otherwise this will have been one of my worst days ever with earnings at about 25% of normal.
So just what did the maintenance people break this time or am I having a repeat of last October's glitch?
Yesterday everything went back to the October glitch levels - meltdown for me.
So far this morning it looks to have bounced back to normal metrics.
Whatever it is they screwed up again, I hope they have resolved since this is becoming an on-going farce for some of us.
I think you mean circumcised your earnings.
That was a cruel <snip>this morning</snip>.
Same here netmeg, EPC down the drain
Ha, I was first with the anomally again!
Good news is the stats seem to have been slow today but catching up now and my EPC returning to normal...fingers crossed it continues this way and then I can afford a beer tonight:-)
Anybody else experiencing something similar?
I'm more convinced than ever that stats sometimes span a day or even days before they're caught up.
It seems like that yet my actual quantity of clicks are pretty consistent at the end of each day except when they've had a totally obvious glitch which they don't seem to "know" anything about!
What I have seen is some sites having much lower ctr and epc and some sites seeing the complete opposite with very high ctr and high epc. When you see this much change across this many sites in regards to ctr and epc across many days after the change I can safely say something was rolled out in the latest update that is at least effecting our sites in vastly different ways per site.
These wild fluctuations from one day to the next is becoming ridiculous and making me re-consider alternative advertising again.
I shouldn't complain though. Last year in May, I had canonical issues which caused Google to "lose" my main site. Now that was painful... earnings for the whole of that month was low 2-digit. Compared to that, I guess I can live with being 30% down from last June.
