Mine is buggered. Really low ecpm, almost half what it was prior. CTR seems ridiculously low though.
Something really bizarre has been going on for the past few weeks though with my account. One day I'd have high CTR, low CPC, next day CTR would halve and CPC double. Yet daily earnings were pretty much the same day in day out. Some kind of weird experimentation I think.
I guess all I can do is ride it out.
I'm just wondering which is bigger cause of this current downtrend: global economic crisis or doublec ads.
Maybe they're rolling out some new system and we all got caught up in the crossfire and it's still not been totally updated for everyone?
Saturday 7th was the worse ever day for me. Almost 50% below baseline.
Same here ( eCPM was 50% of lowest avg. to date )
btw, on the issue of not 'lowering our share', you may be right. Average EPC couldn't decline further on this site I'm seeing.
CTR was low. Not 50% worse, but still very low.
Made me wonder how well they 'fixed' contextual targeting, so I checked in on a few dozen pages.
and yes... ads were off.
just... completely off.
