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?

I see the exact same issues as before. My earnings are extremely low.
All this has started happening two or three days ago and i see no improvement despite what the Gorg eng says...

It happened once before, but only for 1p.
This time it was for 73p
Not what I was expecting.

Well if it is fixed as that google employee says they didn't update any of my stats other than on the 6th.

So 7th, 8th and 9th of dire earnings just happened to coincide with a reporting problem... funny that.

Is the party over? It was fun while it lasted.

Dawnstar, you weren't the only one who had "coincidental" dire earnings on the 7th, 8th, and 9th. In my case, it was the 7th, 9th, and 10th that were "coincidentally" not as good as expected (in some cases dire).

Now Monday that 11th is back up and doing great. (Really great.) No complaints now. But what a weird few days!

Chris from G, who answered "the call" over at the AdSense forum, said we can tell him if we still encounter the problem. It looks like he is actaully cheking your account if you ask him.

Nice to see Chris personally replying. Seems it's not fixed though since the Big G (well, Chris from the Big G!) said it's all fixed then a dozen people said "No, it's not" lol.

I've posted asking whether he can review my account. I had absolutely nothing between 6th-8th October (no clicks, no revenue) which was odd since whilst I have a new site, my CTR is fairly good and I had enough traffic (and ad impressions) on those days to get at least a good few clicks..

zerillos,
Yep, I'll keep this thread updated if anything changes in my account or if Chris replies. :)

Yesterday was another very low day, only earning about 1/3 of what I was. :-(

Absolutely dire today. I really think that the hamsters have lost the plot.

Absolutely dire yesterday.
eCPM doubled today. Where is the pattern?
Each of us seem to be on different cycles, but the results seem similar.

Impressions normal.
CTR is lowered, probably because of lousy ads.
eCPM is drastically lowered, probably because of lousy ads.

As far as those "clickdumps" reported, I never saw one.

The first and second were good, then it was steadily downward until today. I hope this "recovery" of today has some legs. CTR is still low.

same here. CTR and impressions up,
eCPM and earnings down...

Something is terribly wrong with Adsense today. 90% earnings drop.
7:36 pm on Oct 12, 2010 (gmt 0)



Yesterday was fabulous. Today is not horrible, but back to being kind of "meh." Not the worst, but nothing like yesterday. Though sometimes the earnings recover later in the day, so it could still pick up.

Yesterday was average for me and today is trending the same. I think we're seeing normal variation here now - whatever normal means these days. The kind where some people say "I'm having an abysmal day" and others say "Hark, a once-in-a-lifetime day of glory" and others are like, "What are you guys talking about? It's business as usual."

5:21 pm. I knew something was wrong all day. I just got a big click dump on my lap it knocked me silly. The day it's on its way to being another record breaking day!
12:30 am on Oct 13, 2010 (gmt 0)



Yeah, I got a sudden clip dump too, and things are looking pretty good!
4:23 am on Oct 13, 2010 (gmt 0)



is adsense showing correct stats today or is it just me? earnings are way down, i started using google admanager, and now am seeing a drastic fall,

is it because of google admanager or usual google reporting lag?

Good thing I read this thread. I thought it is only me or my site having a smart pricing or something. I guess this very low earnings is world wide. Maybe it has something to do with the coming Halloween? or Christmas?
4:54 am on Oct 13, 2010 (gmt 0)



@filbiz

the earning have been record breaking except for today, when i installed admanager with adsense,

are you seeing low stats only for today too?

Amazing, October 12 started as what I thought was going to be the worst day ever since 2004 and it ended up being the second best day since then. It's 1:15 am the 13th and that thing is taking off again! CTR is going through the roof. Nothing Halloween related...

CTR dropped again today, really really badly...
just like on the 6th
10:39 am on Oct 13, 2010 (gmt 0)



For the last couple of days I'm still about -20% with Page Impressions however since disabling hotlink protection in Cpanel I am seeing some image referrals returning.

CTR is good however eCPM is down since my EPC is at the low end of my usual spread.
