Just had a 100% click dump...much, much better, already better than Tuesday's earnings!

I cannot believe how bad today is. I just pray for a click dump, instead of this s#it dump.
Clicks have been stalled most of today for me. So a click dump must be coming.

impressions climb and still no new clicks for the last 4 hours now...where's the dump?
12:02 am on Apr 14, 2011 (gmt 0)
Adsense issues + Panda = complete debacle. Definitely the low point of my online endeavors. I wish there was a pub nearby!

When you're prepared, the pub is in the home. Cheers (the US way!).

Panda washed away most of my AdSense earnings (a few thousand dollars per month). Years worth of income growth vanished in a blink. Will spend the next few days nursing my wounds with cold beers. My days of web publishing are probably over...

Though the panda is often assumed to be docile, it has been known to attack humans, presumably out of irritation rather than predation.
Feed the Panda Bamboos man!, Panda eats 99% Bamboos
Bamboos = Quality Content

@Rockyou Quality content? One of my 200 page websites is the only source of information on it's subject in the world, yet it's outranked by a Yahoo Answers page that is currently unanswered. How am I going to out quality that?
Let's stop insulting panda bears. If this Google update is anything from the animal kingdom it's a 2 ton silverback gorilla strung out on crack cocaine. Or better yet let's just call it what it really is, a billionaire's ego trip as he regains the reins of his faded technology empire (got to make sure that he gets all of his scent on the internet tree stump). I certainly feel showered in piss right about now, how about you?

@oldirish why don't you write to Google about it, I think you have a serious case.

Wednesday went back to normal for me after Tuesday's data loss and would have been even better if something upstream from my server hadn't gone belly-up for an hour or so at my busiest time of day...if it's not G it's something else!
2:01 pm on Apr 14, 2011 (gmt 0)
Exactly, I feel you so very much. This whole thing keeps me thinking that I should sell my business and just go back to a real job where at least I have peace of mind and constant salary from a government job rather than this ups and downs that can crush your life in a blink of an eye.
Please read my post, nothing to do with quality. This update has killed QUALITY. Don't get me started on that my friend.
Tuesday I had same earnings as always past few years but then Wed was again super super dead again loss in thousands of dollars what is going on?

Wednesday was really bad, and today dpen't look much better so far. Once again my impressions are up, but CTR seems stuck and eCPM is only slightly better then yasterday (still awful)...sigh.
5:28 pm on Apr 14, 2011 (gmt 0)
Updation time please hamsters...my AdSense metrics have come to a complete standstill!
5:49 pm on Apr 14, 2011 (gmt 0)
Ah hell, I knew she was gonna give me the run around. CTR is stuck on stupid today. Do what you want Google. I've had it! I'm going to Walmart and buy me some cheap 18Pk. Bud Lite.

stats frozen...it is the first time in almost three years i see this...it is almost like i don't have adsense on my site at all
6:54 pm on Apr 14, 2011 (gmt 0)
I got a click dump, but CPC and eCPM are so bad it didn't make much of a dent...
7:02 pm on Apr 14, 2011 (gmt 0)
That's better:-) Second time this week I've had a 100% click dump...surely AdSense processing's not being affected by the Panda mularky?
10:29 pm on Apr 14, 2011 (gmt 0)
Second time this week I've had a 100% click dump
100% click dump? 100% click dump? Is there an option box for that in our control panel? How do I set it to "on"?
12:16 am on Apr 15, 2011 (gmt 0)
Can you not see the click here button?
2:45 pm on Apr 15, 2011 (gmt 0)
This thread needs changing into the "Daily AdSense Stuck Updation Posts"...DASUP...what are they doing, just keeping everything for an extra 6 hours or so just to see how many here notice it?
3:06 pm on Apr 15, 2011 (gmt 0)
Mine stayed stuck all day and never went up :) Hit a record low yesterday. Today is looking even worse, thank goodness I saved my pennies when time were good.
Once Google takes care of the longtails like there talking about it should even get worse yeah!

I'm more and more convinced that not all clicks update in real time. I use statcounter on some sites, and it showed a bunch of clicks (exit links) over the week that didn't seem to get counted by AdSense. Then today I get some honking huge click dumps on sites where the numbers AND the ad sizes don't match up for today (they're higher in Google than in Statcounter) Yep. These are older clicks. But that's okay, I'll take 'em. And it's one more incentive for me not to look at stats on a day by day basis. There's such a thing as being TOO granular.

I've been convinced of this for some time. It certainly makes it hard to say earnings are up or down any particular day. The only way I can keep my blood pressure down is to step back and look at the week or better yet, the month.

Yea, me too, but today the stats positively screamed it.

Stucky, stucky, stuckier, stuckiest ... in quick setting cement by the looks of it, come on G, give the old steam engine a kick:-)

CTR is up and CPC is pethetic. 3 to 5 cent clicks? WTF is going on today!
