No one has started one for today, so I might as well.
Piss poor day today. Adverts are okay, impressions okay, but only showing 2 clicks - and they were not worth paying out on.

Situation Normal - Adsense Fouled Up? :) This reporting lag seems to be commonplace now.

The lag is commonplace, but at the end of the day it does not pick up.

Absolutely diabolical, yesterday I saw 33% more clicks than New Year's Day BUT 11% lower earnings.

After steady month on month increases from the dire lows of last May and June I'm now forecasting my worst month EVER.

FWIW my global B&M business with regular customers is doing fine HOWEVER this has been the quietest start to a year I can remember with very few new customer stock or substantial project enquiries.

Is it the bad weather some are experiencing, a double dip recession starting, people in general afraid to spend or something else?

Oh, I know, but 4 hours is longer than usual.

I've noticed recently that the stats seem to be "slow" during a day, but when I wake up and check my stats the next morning, the "yesterday" stats seem to be about what I would expect.

What's the downside of waiting until the next morning to check the previous day's stats before having one of these threads on a regular basis?

Or to ask another way, what's the upside of not starting one of these threads until Google's day is compeleted at least?

Compare with the same time, 7 days ago

-20% impressions
-40% clicks
-60% earnings

That's dramatic

Now that's interesting...Earlier on today I removed AdSense from two image pages which were getting thousands of referrals per day from Google images by theme building sites however owing to my image protection they were getting 302 re-directs plus I have ip blocking in place for 3 referral sites trying to use those images by hotlinking.

Coincidence or not? My EPC has gone up 55% this afternoon and back to normal!

Clicks are still way down for the time of day but at least I seem to be going in the right direction...for now:-)

My ctr is normal, but my ecpm is almost halved.
Its only the one day so far, but this is when lack of access to click & display data annoys me. Have I lost an advertiser? Or are they just paying less? Should I be switching more traffic to other sources, or is this just a glitch?

I think good starts are actually click dumps from previous day...

With the exception of the very slow reporting, I have seen no decrease in earnings.

They are pretty predictable % wise, with the traffic numbers for the site.
