Hello Everyone: I ported the thread located here: [webmasterworld.com...]
as we were off topic in a few areas.

I'm highly interested in continuing the discussion about what other Publishers are seeing in 2011 with regard to their adsense earnings over years prior.

As I indicated, I noticed a substantial drop in earnings during the first few days of January 2011, after a record breaking December 2010.

Anyone noticing this trend is encouraged to share their feedback.

How did this week start? good, bad, ugly? :)

Ugly, the lowest ever for me:-((

eCPM has halved today so far.
I am looking seriously for a good alternative.

How did this week start?


Very slightly up so far on my new norm average, the kind of up which could go down with only a few low paying clicks...strained, very strained...know what I mean?

I came on here to post that my stats went up slightly today and saw that Husky Pup had posted the same thing.
I am in pretty much the exact same situation.

I just saw this and thought it might be of some interest considering everything that's going on as of late....

My cpc is low too...again. I have even noticed some ads which do not have anything to do with my blog...mineral water, gold etc which do not match my blog content, absolutely.... I was on google adsense in italian and users are complaining there too. Do anyone has got any chance to read foreign forums to see what the situation is there?

Freaky, freaky Monday!

The slightly up EPC average stayed with me all day and I ended up with 5% more clicks than last Monday yet a huge 28% increase in earnings.

Apart from one day in early December my best day since my collapse commenced the third week of November, let's see what the rest of the week brings.

Yesterday very low, but today has began normal.
I think that G plays with us;-)

This is, because some use dfp and G get confused and shows more than 3 ads.

Well Husky, I hope yours doesn't follow mine again because mine is back down to where it was (low) after a "normal" Monday

Definitely not a very good EPC at the moment and it also looks like a couple of hours behind.

VERY low CTR today. It's never been this low. I think Netflix.com ads have something to do with this.

Very low CTR today. Barely moving. Does this relate to reported PIP you think?

Back down to 50% of the december average.

Something appears to be seriously wrong with them today. CTR is down 75% with same January traffic.

I don't usually check too often, as all tends to even out in the long run,, but no movement seen for a long time.

Just had a small click dump CPC and CTR today are a tad below average for me. Switching back and forth between the old and new beta interface updates the reports faster.

Some days the CTR was ok, but the cost per click was horrible. Today the CPC was good, the CTR was horrible. And now I come home and read the news that my Taco Bell beef percentage is down too. What is the world coming to?

Really. When it turns out that Taco Bell's meat is not really meat at all, what are we to do?

CTR and epc up a bit today.

It's road kill. Well today is going down as the worst day ever in years. Same traffic, CTR just extremely LOW. EPC was fine though.. I think we need to start blocking those big budget, general, useless ads like:

Google.com
groupon.com
netflix.com
geico.com
forex.com

What else?
