Blooming 'eck! Is this the Panda effect?

Steaming day for me, in fact my highest earnings' day since last September, CTR compared to recently up a little with click volume back to where it used to be however my EPC was well at the top end of my usual range generating an obviously good day.

Just how long will this last we'll soon see?

Not long, because it isn't Panda that's causing it.

Same thing for me. Was such a bad day, I think Panda Update is still taking effect.

And you never had bad days prior to Panda ?

Are we stuck chaps and chapesses?

My Page Impressions are going up slowly but my clicks have been at a standstill for a couple of hours or so.

Stats have been updating normally for me.

CTR down thus far today, but CPC a fair-bit up.

Yep...I'm now 66% of normal but earlier it was way below 50% which is way outta line. This year Tuesdays have been my best earning day of the week however today has been abnormally slow.

EPC is still good, hopefully there will a click dump overnight.

Over the last couple days I have noticed that earnings (and EPC) started out real slow until around 5 pm (PT) and then shot up. The second half of the day the clicks are worth way more.

I was really worried earl on but both days turned around.

No click dump, whatever happened was horrible resulting in my lowest click day of 2011 with one click less than New Year's Day!

My worst-ever CTR since the beginning of AdSense with it at 60.5% of 2011 average but on the upside my EPC stayed strong from Monday's performance.

I'm assuming a data loss day other than G deciding to penalise me for having an excellent Monday.

Exact same thing here Husky, several sites showing 0% CTR for yesterday which normally yield a low of 3-4% CTR. Something is broken.

Must only be broken in certain places, because it's okay here. Great day yesterday.

That's entirely possible since we're not all on the same servers therefore a minor glitch for Google with one server could be a major upset for the publishing accounts on that server meanwhile no one else experiences anything and they wonder why we are posting here.

That's my guesstimate:-)

That "glitch" has lasted a long time then. Only one day this month I could say was bad, and that was only about 2% down on an average day.

At the end of the day they're only computers and even Google will not replace a dilapidated machine if all it takes for them is a minor repair meanwhile the publishers on that server take the hit.

I've just been checking and without doubt Google's metrics for Tuesday do not tally with my own server logs, it's as simple as that.

At the end of the day
Personally, I don't think it is a glitch.

Didn't you have the same kind of problem at this time of year, two years ago ?

My second lowest click day of the year at 75% of 2011 average in April when 95% of all my click days are within 90-110% of average?

Nah...that's way outta line however I do know that this kind of glitch happens 2/3 times a month but it's usually my EPC that suffers, fortunately this time that held up...

Day before yesterday adsense earning is down, then it's up yesterday, then today is down again.

What's up with adsense? Not well?

Well CTR is way down for me, so I'm experimenting with some "outside the box" type designs.

@Lame_Wolf

I think given we look at our stats pretty much always we do get an idea if it was due to Panda or not. I see CTR going up and down past few days it has to be Panda because things are shifting up and down.

@Husky

Likewise impressions are hitting close numbers but CTR gone down.

Overall, Monday was dead, Tuesday i spiked and was back to normal earnings and today again it looks worst than Monday :(

I've seen that every day since I started.

This month is like April weather. Up and downs.

Yesterday at this time, nearly same impressions,
but 50% more clicks, 80% more earnings.

I cannot believe how bad today is. I just pray for a click dump, instead of this s#it dump.
