Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Something is very wrong, for a lot of publishers. Some use adsense to earn a few extra dollars for a beer at the weekend but others earn tens of thousands a month and when their earnings are cut in half suddenly, it can have serious implications.
still, things can't get any ... worse
I have a good friend who would counsel you to NEVER use that expression.
He can spend about an hour or so relating the story of one day in the jungle from awakening soaking wet at dawn and saying that expression all through out the day as he was shot up, blown up etc. etc. He ended the day at around 10 p.m. under close arrest for threatening to shoot his C.O. Only the chaplain and M.O. saved him.
I've never used that expression since Anzac Day, 1972 when the story was told. Seems almost like a "self fulfilling prophesy". I now really believe that!
Probably they are going to fix that error they unconsciously implemented the other day, and probably they are implementing a new error that needs maintenance in a few weeks time.
(That "shrinking eCPM" bug that some here experience will not be fixed though. It works as designed. ;-)
There was a time when ASA took the effort to notify WW members. Tsk.
I can't help it that you guys are faster than I am. You're right, though. Saturday, May 16, 10am-2pm PDT (that's 5pm-9pm GMT). You won't be able to log in, but we'll still be tracking your earnings and serving ads to your site.
On a side note, today is my 6 month anniversary on WebmasterWorld. I was hoping for flowers, but I guess you all forgot. :)
But as things blow so hard right now, if they get any worse I'll just be replacing google with other networks and I'll finally be done with them.
I'd love to know their objective during these maintenance days. I am quite sure it's to tweak their retarded algo to find new reasons to pay us less per click.
Okay....I'm gonna go ahead and duck now.
Don't throw anything too heavy please.
