Wow... Is anybody else experiencing a worldcup dip? My country played today and earnings are not just poor, they are way down the gutter! Well, at least we won 2-0 ;)

Seriously, since the world cup started my CTR has novedived along with traffic! A 'great' double whammy of poverty!

I just mentioned the same on another thread here. It is not the only coincidence, the change on G algo is affecting traffic on several sites who had stable numbers for years. I hope this ends well.

Nothing as yet but it may have an effect once it gets passed the first round however there are a lot of non-World Cup Internet users out there...just as normal!

I was reading an article that mentions that WC followers will spend proportionately less time looking at non-WC things on the web.

Makes sense. I think it really depends on the countries your visitors are from and whether they are from a 'WC watching' demographic.

Nope. This is my peak season, and it's over twice what it was in its best year. Things looking good.

When audience is Brazil for sure adsense drop, all country stop in match days (schools, stores etc etc close).
Today... drop about 20% (Brazilian Game).
Not so hight at weekend games.
If brazil win WC (7 matchs) i lost a adsense day.

My major income is from the German speaking area.

I always hope, that Germany is wiped out early,
but again, this did not happen.
