"Today is so bad!" How about a longer term view?

Hi,

I pop in and out of this forum sometimes as to learn from other webmasters who are making use of Adsense.

There are so many posts on the forum every second day saying "Today is sooo bad, I can't believe it!".

Isn't looking at on-going daily stats just a stupid waste of time?

This should be a month-to-month project where tweaks to layouts etc should be tested over thousands of visitors across different days. There's always going to be variations in income. You should compare positions, channels, pages and sites on their average relative performance instead of looking at how many dollars have arrived today.

Opinions?

Simon

What is weird, is traffic is the same, CTR is a little lower but eCPM is a LOT lower than normal.

I thought there was something wrong with my site and/or ads appearing on my site. Could it be a similar incident like the belly fat ads? maybe I'm wrong. What could it be?

Good for you Andrew:-)...however it was my worst Monday in months, I actually earned less than a Sunday which is, I reckon, a first for me.
