I don't think so, normal people have a life outside of the Net and especially so when it's nice weather or if they are otherwise busy!
Even I, me, yes, ME, have sublimingly switched off for a few days...I need the break, no doubt many others do...go have a beer and relax...BTW, the band we had tonight were great fun, it's a pity you missed them :-)))
Wow, here I am at 9:32 pm EST and impressions are way up, yet CTR is at a low 0.28%. 2 clicks got 0, and 2 high paying clicks aren't showing in my channel data? Something is whacked. Someone is whacking the hamster.
Monday was what I would consider a completely normal day with everything back to the beginning of April metrics except that my second biggest site had its best day in 9 months and was nearly the top earner...it was 2006 revisited:-)

That's great news HuskyPup. My day was the 19th - raised my spirits big time and rekindled my optimism that things were finally turning around. Sadly, it didn't last. April will most certainly be my lowest AdSense payment in years. Yesterday closed at about 75% of what used to be my daily average and better than most of the days this month (so an upswing at least). Hopefully today will be even better!
Back to that Panda thing for a second. I gather duplicate content is an issue and personally, if I get sent an article I always make sure it hasn't been published elsewhere. I wouldn't dream of just ripping off someone else's content and find it hard to believe people out there have the nerve to do that.
I've been doing a bit of checking and I've found several sites that have scraped my content - one even set up a load of categories the same as mine and didn't even bother to change it at all.
My question is, does Panda know who published first, or does it blindly penalize both parties? Thoughts anyone?
