Just an hour or so to end oct 6, for around 10000 impressions this morning (Taiwan time, GMT+8), I'm seeing single digit earnings.
CTR has plummeted, eCPM is plummeted, and earnings worse this morning. Impressions are counting normally though.
Anyone seeing similar things?

Censin, put 3 leaderboard Text and image ads above the fold and get rid of the rest of the adsense ads on the site. Allow third party and interest based ads. Do adsense section targeting on both, the title and post and make sure to exclude other areas of the site as well with the section targeting ignore code. Close your eyes and let it run for a couple of days. See how that treats you. :-)

Cool... I like your style Sir.

There are no secrets.

I don't use the max allowed.
I don't blend.
About 20-30% of the site has adsense.

But even if you did exactly the same, there is no guarantee that the results will be the same.

And whatever I am doing is working for me. I could alter it and make tenfold the earnings... who knows ?

But if it ain't broke, don't fix it. And as I am happy with my earnings, I won't be altering anything.

LOL! Yeah agree, but it works wonders. Can't expect visitors to bookmark your site though... Unless it has great content, like mine.

Thanks for the tips on section targeting.
But 3 leaderboards are too much for me, they pretty much occupied the whole page.

Precisely, it is what I am doing with my 7 years old site. Just let it run and keep generating money.

UNBELIEVABLE... My Oct earning is 0.5% different from September's.
Yes... The difference is below 1%.

Regards the $ number, all I can say is nothing to complain here.

mule? I thot they were using hamsters! When'd they change? What am I going to do with all this hamster feed I just bought? Did they inform HuskyPup?


Where have you been Andrew?

The hamsters were replaced by sloths weeks ago...rabbits like hamster food, heck, even my Husky eats hamster food plus hamsters, rabbits, cats, pheasant, chickens, pigeons...she had a face to face with a fox the other night, the wolf won:-)

Looks like Oct 6 is repeated again on 4 Nov. Any one else observe this?
Earnings have barely moved since hours.

Just had my first look of the day and it's hours behind for me, 25% of a GoogleDay and maybe 10% reported etc.

Sloths are very slow in the morning, afternoon, evening and night...I'll give G a call and see if we can re-assign the hamsters again:-)

Yesterday earnings were a nice surprise, highest in about six weeks. Maybe there's still hope. :-)

9:31 am. Wednesday and Thursday were just extremely good days. Today it appears it will be the same. I'm seeing more pages reported under site:mysite.com and getting about 25% more traffic too. Stats don't appear stuck for me today..
