does anybody see their adsense earnings appear to be reporting slow today? the impressions are pretty much where they should be for this time of day, but the earnings seem too low. anybody else seeing this?

For me (in the UK) it's extremely slow. Things have been going up and up over the last six months but today is down around 50% of what I would expect. Roller coaster maybe, but our site is extremely predictable and has been for two years. Today is different so far.

Half what it should be for me too.

A few hours ago it was looking like it was going to be a decidedly "meh" day, but then I suddenly had a click dump, and while it's too soon to tell how good a day it'll ultimately be, it appears that it'll at least be decent.

In the last week or so, things have definitely slowed down. Last month was much better, as was the month before. But still, there has been a big jump from the less-than-impressive earnings I suffered with for quite a while.

Well, it's now officially a pretty good day! Huh!

My theory is that we all take turns having good days and crap days. Up and down, up and down . . .

Today is ours
tomorrow is somebodyelse's
maybe the day after will be your day ;)

Tend not to be too bothered about the days, the months are important though.

I think I may have found out why my revenues are down. The 728x90 ad unit started showing 4 ads instead of 3 ads the last few days. This in turn causes the font size of the ads to be quite small and not very readable. All my other ad units are on par, it is just this size on certain pages that is down the last 2 days.

thanks
I can say that;
300x250 Medium Rectangle shows wrong size ( even if I set it large, it shows small size most of the time )

fyi

Thursday and Friday CTR was down with same traffic. Daily earnings were below the previous daily average. Today it seems a bit better, even with low CTR due some crazy high clicks I'm getting. Talking $5, $10, $12. Trying to figure out what's up! I'm afraid the answer is "your number buddy!" :-)

What do you think as a big Adwords advertiser you would be doing these days? Stopping your campaigns due to most people being in Thanksgiving mood and not thinking about buying anything other than turkey? :-) Maybe waiting for the 26th? I don't know... what do you think?

Regarding some comments above about Google displaying ads differently, I found that if you clear your cookies, they display them as intended.

Do you think adsense will be stable again in future?

Only if they drop interest based advertising or make it optional.

Partially disables it. Doesn't disable the ad stalking which is what many people think "interest based advertising" is.

Blimey...I've fallen off a cliff today, horrible so far. I hope this is not the start of the Thanksgiving meltdown!

Same here Huskypup - in fact last few days have been a tad low. Hopefully it's all just a blip or a seasonal trend.

Not the best start to a Monday for me...would like to think it's a reporting lag. Would also like to believe in Santa Claus...

Thursday thru Sunday were "ok" days. Today we are back on track. Lots of traffic from search.aol.com and search.yahoo.com today! I guess the Aol dial-upers and Yahoo old schoolers are out in full force! :-)

Wait, I just checked Google Analytics. There is a slight reporting lag, at least over thisaway.

Not super great so far, but I've had much worse. I just hope the rest of the day picks up a bit.

Anyone see extremely low CPM on 23 November? Up until today, Novembers earnings were more than October, today the CPM level went back to the lowest levels last seen in May/june months.

Yes, pretty low. These next three days could be horrible with people traveling and spending time with family.
