I always check here first to see if others are experiencing what I am....someone may be waiting for another to post.

Seems rev. and stats are WAY down for this time of day, it's like I'm looking at 9:30am stats and it's 12:30.

Just wondering if I'm alone!

I see the same thing. There's a huge difference in ecpm (-30%) compared to yesterday. Ecpm was exceptionally high during the last week of June. It would be odd if it dropped like a stone simply because it's the beginning of a new month.

I see less clicks, but impressions are normal. I think. Something weird.

Yesterday was my best in a couple of months. Dunno why. Today is down, but still very good.

I agree, last week was a dream week...haven't seen those totals for quite sometime.

Just seeing all your posts makes me feel so much better (I'll feel even better if things go back up ;)
Thanks!

Stats seem normal here. Have seemed regular all day.

Yesterday finished up on a higher figure than average.

I hope there's a reporting delay going on. My AdSense impression count looks about right for this time of day (maybe even a little higher than usual), but the clicks are way, way under. Please, not another day in the basement! :-(

No impressions delay, but ecpm's down 45% from yesterday. Looks like some money knob has been turned at the plex.

Actually it just occured to me what the explanation might be:
Today is the first day of the new quarter. So either Google lost many advertisers due to the recession (they tend to be on quarterly budgets), or the deal with yahoo is in effect starting this quarter.

Might be a new quarter etc. but I still have ads on my site and yes already approaching my daily average for impressions and nary a click. It has happend before, usually about one day a month but I wanted to start the month off good.

Hopefully it's just slow updating since I've been having a busy day yet G's metrics look dismally on the low side.

I'm anticipating that the next couple of days may drop considerably with the run-up to July 4th if historic metrics are anything to go by.

Gulp....Noon stats at 6:00pm PST Usually if they are going to update it would start working about now, unless I need to wait until 11:00.

Quick question: Those that are noticing a decrease, did you update your sites yesterday or today? It always seems that when I add a new page that new page pays less. Just testing a theory ;)

No changes to the site, ecpm down 40-45%.

Ended up with a normal Tuesday traffic however with weekend earnings therefore down about 25% and less than the daily average for the last 3 months.

EPC fine.

It's been a scary Tuesday. EPC and eCPM down the drain, traffic and CTR as normal.

This morning I noticed a couple of summer campaigns of well-known MFAs which I sent straight into my filter list (whenever EPC goes down the drain I find a bunch of new MFAs). Needless to say, my filter is chronically full, and I'd love to block *advertisers* instead of their domains. This has been requested from Google. Let's see how this turns out (yeah, I know, nothing will happen, but there's always HOPE, isn't it?).

I wanted to hold off until today to post in case stats were just delayed, but it seems that my eCPM was down about 40-45% for me yesterday as well.

Monday is normally one of our best days. Today's eCPM isn't looking much better so far. I'm already considering replacing adsense with some affiliate programs.

if that's so, it hasn't happened in every sector. The last day of the 2nd quarter was a great day, and the first day of the 3rd quarter was well above average....

The advertisers in my sector do not seem to have altered plus my EPC is fine, just well below average clicks.

I have to wonder whether return visitors do not bother with the ads many times since the same ones are nearly always being shown hence why my AdLinks tend to be more used, but lower paying, than my main leaderboard even though they can scroll the ads.

The last day of the 2nd quarter was a great day

WooHoo...hang the flags out...purplecape and HuskyPup in sync for the first time ever!

Yesterday was very good. Today is shockingly bad. Seeing 67% less revenue. I guess we're all riding the google rollercoaster at the moment.

ditto

I think it may be wider spread. I usually get clicks from a few articles in a well known joint-publishing site. This site usually gets above average eCPM and EPC. Lately, it's been getting peanuts as well.

I think it's going to be a slow month for many.

going by today's stats so far, that is an understatement.

Today was just a little below average then around 3:00 pm Google Time I got a very nice click dump and today is on track as a banner day. I guess it is a zero-sum game, and I've been on the wrong side of it before too, so I know how that feels.

Today the impressions count keeps growing and growing, but not the clicks. That column appears to be stuck.

I'm at the point of removing AdSense again!

Yesterday traffic for me was surprisingly normal, the EPC good yet the CTR pathetic. It was only beaten by one of those "Google Glitch Days" when they never admit to anything ever being wrong.

Ok, it's early so far today however NOTHING seems to be updating except a few page impressions, my CTR and eCPM metrics now look like a multi-million hit forum site. I'll give it a few hours but if it isn't rectified by then it will be repaced by my ad banner campaign I have prepared.

Have they got problems or what?
