March 2011 AdSense Earnings

   
8:32 am on Mar 2, 2011 (gmt 0)



Perhaps a little early, but it's now into the 2nd day of March here in the UK soo... the March 2011 AdSense thread.

Yesterday I had a pretty good day. The rebound I seen at the end of Feb thankfully continued. Long may it continue!

Absolutely dire CTR again today, now at 58% of the month's average.

What the heck have they broken? Maintenance on Sunday and now this cr@p!

EPC absolutely normal.

Its a good strong month. Looks like a big click dump early every evening.

Allways the same for me too.
Few days before maintenance it looks good and after maintenance it is going LOW, LOW and LOW:-((

Hmmm...so far today my second biggest site has achieved 28.5% of normal click volume with 16.5% of it's normal daily average earnings and 21% eCPM!

My biggest site is fairing slightly better with 44% click volume, 37% earnings and 55% eCPM...oh yeah, completely normal and another data loss day by the looks of it.

Had the best day in a long time yesterday. Today the stats are upside down and have barely moved for hours.

Yesterday was way down compared to average/normal, my 2nd biggest site never recovered from whatever it was Google did and it had a straight 50% slashing across the board, clicks, CTR, eCPM, earnings...not impressed, that wasn't visitors, that was Google and stupid pricing was definitely involved!

Maybe you'll get a click dump at the end of the day.

No click dump as of yet (0550 Hrs). A massacre of a day.

Woke up this morning (3.00pm Google time) and was pleasantly surprised to see earnings at about 10% above average. Then it just stayed still. It's still still...

No click dump here. Back to 30%

If there is no click dump (I didn't have one yesterday) this will be the worst Adsense day I have had since I started.
I could get more change out of a couch than this.
It may be time to tell Adsense bye bye finally.
Aggravation is exceeding the money.

Just noticed that Google's certified network list is now 245 networks long. Today is better than yesterday but still slow. I've reverted to text-only on some prime positions and they seem to be working out somewhat better. However a few hours is not enough to decide (it might involve A/B testing).

jmcc, I'd let tests go at least a week, unless you are getting a good number of uniques per day (1k+)

Adsense is a funny thing. A few years ago I thought earnings could never go below 4 digits a day and now I'm wondering if I'll ever see 3 digits again.

I don't know what adsense did about 3 weeks ago but 60% drop in CTR is crazy. Obviously they accidently or purposely messed with the ads displayed on my pages. No one wants to click anymore.

I tried everything to shake this loose - certified networks off/on and images off/on in all combinations.

I'll probably have to do that, derivative,
There are clear trends over a week with the weekend being traditionally low days. The peak day has moved over the last few years. Traditionally it was Monday, then Tuesday, and now Wednesday. It gets a bit confusing because Google Time is about eight hours behind GMT (seven at the moment due to US daylight saving time).

EXTREMELY low CTR today


Welcome to my Monday and Tuesday!

Interestingly the same days in 2008, 2009 and 2010 were also low as well. Hmmm...?
8:46 pm on Mar 24, 2011 (gmt 0)



Confirming stuck stats here as well for the past hour or so. Click dump probably coming soon.
