Just noticed some completely off target advertising on one of my sites. Perhaps the people behind Behaviour based advertising should ask themselves one simple question: why do people find what they've lost in the last place they look?

7th April I ended up with precisely my average click volume but my EPC was dragged up somehow and I ended up "only" -12% in daily earnings.

So what happened? How come so many of us saw the same thing at the same time?

Today looks even worse. Either the stats haven't budged in hours or they've broken something again.

Pretty slow. Things haven't moved for 3 hours now. Are people hitting the beach already? :)

Drastic change in CTR here, too. And I just saw an ad for a site with ad copy like "gay s.x/personals here" on one of my sites. Sent G notice, shame on them.

I just had to look...click volume down 11% on average and -17.6% CTR, however EPC somehow crawled back to average therefore not the disaster it was looking earlier in the day.

Interestingly I'm on par with 2010 earnings BUT Easter was in the first week of April.

For once, and solely for this moment, I can say that all looks normal for me:-)

Just wait until Sunday, I'm gonna get $hafted!

Well its rollercoaster out here, Today is on lower earnings side, CTR has been low this month. Is anyone here having normal CTR this month?, Ads are off targetted is a major problem.

Sundays for me are never great, but this seems like the worst Sunday I've ever had since I started with AdSense many years ago.

Slow this weekend, but this is the first really nice weather we've had this year. It'll pick up; it always does eventually.

Just as expected and predicted! After having my best day of the month on Saturday I had my worst day since mid-February on Sunday.

And so far today? The lowest eCPM I have ever seen just breaking the USD 1.00 level.

Something's seriously amiss in Googleland and I still maintain that it's Stupid Pricng (TM).

April's been an odd month. Overall it seem fine, but there's been stats lag every single day of last week. So checking it throughout the day shows awful stats, but then the following morning and it's okay.

Anywhoo, it seems Panda has rolled out Worldwide now so will be closely watching traffic changes (even though most of my traffic is US).
