CTR down a fair bit, EPC is right through the floor

Predictably that is now in reverse. Whinge and win!

It's also hard not to think it's somehow related to the maintenance.

Sure it's a possibility but I think I would investigate other things as well, like hijacked AdSense code.

50/50

If it were a medium term trend I'd yank it. Today in every area is back to the levels of 12 months ago and I'd grade that:

"Satisfactory - could do better"

Since April 1st, If I got a good day (that is one where I almost get my old baseline figure) then it will be followed by a crap one.

Pray this is an upward trend.

However, like yourself, one step forward - two back.

FarmBoy, did your other CPC programs pick up the slack? Did they change at all, or just stay the same?

Its the opposite for me! My earnings are increasing - slightly - but they are increasing! Definitely at an increased "high" because May was one of my lowest earning months and it looks as though I will at least be above that for July!

Overall on a daily basis my month of July is looking up!

They have basically stayed the same.

A bit of a disappointment, then next day was average EPC and, today [just finished] started out disappointing yet finished up best of the month so far.

The only real vaiable gyrating around here is EPC which is unusual for me. It was CTR giving me heartache for months.

Maybe in the "old days" we were spoilt so much and we weren't tuned into daily variations so much because highs/lows were still good anyway.

[added] Gee, only a trillion today? Cancel that order for the new Rolls-Royce!

I knew it would be. I am sorry.
Same thing happens to me at present.

Wolflover, I, also, have been blessed with much higher earnings since I changed the font size to large on both 300x250x and 160x600s.

Looks like the AdWords and AdSense sites are closed for maintenance, looks unplanned as no notification this time.

Here's hoping they messed something up when they did maintenance a few days back and are fixing it as my earnings have been appalling ever since.

This is my spread, ore difference betseen the Average Revenue per Click by month compared to 2008. (not the rev per click)
Jan through April were higher but no where close to January. May was down 11 cents to May of 2008 and June down 12 cents. July is only down 4 cents compared to July of 08

Jan up $0.13 Feb up $0.04 Mar up $0.04 Apr $0.02 May down by $(0.11) Jun down by $(0.12) Jul so far is only down by $(0.04)
Hoping that June was the Bottom.

I've developed this theory with AdSense lately:

a) On odd days I get odd results and;

b) On even days I get even results.

No, I'm not kidding. Honest.

And I've started thinking of AdSense as the stock market now. The way many of us are now trying to understand its behaviour, I wouldn't be surprised if someone develops an ups and down ticker of erratic earnings/ecpms/epc charts etc and even a Dow-Jones type index/average... :)

Quoting myself from earlier in this thread:

Starting back when they announced the different font sizes and up until last weekend, I had great earnings - almost as good as back in 2003 or 2004.

Then, since last Saturday's maintenance, my total earnings for the entire 6-day period has been less than what I earned normally in just one day.

I'm still getting the same trafic and seeing the same ads. Both the CTR and EPC are in the tank.

And then on the 21st someone reports that AdSense is temporarily down for a while then suddenly my numbers are on the rise again.

Interesting.

FarmBoy, something interesting happened recently that reminded me of this thread. Your experience stuck out as one of those "if it happens to him then it could happen to anybody" sort of things, so it had me intrigued.

But I also recall that you mentioned other ad programs. I just tried that out and got my butt kicked. I added another program that was not even a competitor (it is PPA not PPC) and my CPC plunged. For the same number of clicks in a day I was getting about 30% less than just a few days prior. When I removed the other program, the CPC and revenue rebounded immediately. It was like turning on and off a light switch.

So what happened here? Was I being punished by Google? (My first thought was a twist on the title of a science fiction novel by Robert Heinlein: "The Google is a Harsh Mistress.")

But the more I think about it, this is my explanation: the other program attracted the quality clickers. Although it's PPA vs. Google's PPC, I believe that the people who viewed that program were the ones Google might have paid more money for a click.

On the other hand, maybe Google said, "OK, you want her on the same page as me? Fine. We'll just see who has a headache tonight." ;)

Get rid of her and get on with your life.
