Saturday 15th May 2010 Second Worst Day Of The Year For Me!

   
11:06 am on May 16, 2010 (gmt 0)



What the heck happened? I don't log-in for a day and everything falls apart.

EPC ok, actual clicks and earnings down 47%, CTR way down...Gs numbers don't look anything like mine, did they have a huge data loss?

Has anyone else seen the same?

I came here to start a new thread 'Is anyone seeing worst Sunday 16 MAY?'. Yesterday (saturday) was Okay for me, but today 16 May, everything is abysmal. eCPM is nearly half of this month's average.
For a change, I did log in to the system, at least 5 times today, nothing has improved though.

It was a greas Saturday, even above daily average of this month, and current average is the best daily average of a month since November 2008.

Channels im still running show a new all time low in CTR, epc is rock solid. Ever since the Thursday maint CTR has dropped substantially further. Almost as if they are missing data for Thur/Fri/Sat.

G's comp that im running on the same sites is showing double the ctr of G. That has never happened and leads me to believe something is wrong with data collection. I put a ticket in but havent heard back yet.

I think some of us got slammed with revenue recovery... money sent back to advertisers. I have seen this before on the Saturday they do "maintenance", which is always right before or at the cut-off to change your payments options. By the 15th, they are beginning the process to get payments out for publishers. So, any clicks they want to return to the advertiser have to be done by then. But, this is the worst ever. My earnings were down by about $80. That is not something you want to see more than one day a month.

I can remember one month I had a day with three clicks for $20 each. This is an unusually high cpc for the site that earned those clicks. The next week was maintenance day and my earnings were off by exactly $60 that day.

When you follow trends closely, you can predict with certainty what you will earn in any given day of the week, any given day of the month, any month of the year. When you see a surprise drop beyond the norm, you take notice.

This month, I have had a handful of days I was up about $20 over average. I suspect this was recovery of that revenue.

I saw a big drop Saturday too. I typically get a lot of traffic on body wraps and, for reasons I don't fully understand, ionized water. Saw big drop in both.

Good observation MsHuggys.

Are they anything like tortillas? :-)

This month has been all over the place. I've only had three days where earnings were close to the average mean for my site, all the other days this month have been well under. Yesterday was one of the three, closing just slightly up. Today is just crawling along and at this rate, earnings will wind up short.

Now Monday (5 hours into) looks all set to break Sunday's record in registering the lowest eCPM of this year. Terrible metrics.
