For me, so far today 1st May, it has continued in the same vein of the past few days.
I've never experienced such bad endofmonthitis before, here's hoping for a kick-start Monday or Tuesday or whenever anyone, asides from us lot, go back to work!

(Don't kill yourself yet HP, I'm pretty sure stats are delayed. They are far far behind my other stat programs and logs)

My stats have been stuck for about 2 hours now.

No suicide going on here yet but to get things into perspective I am still only halfway to a Xmas Day with earnings.
Panda 2.1 has now seriously mauled all my B&M sites for some unknown reason...oh, I know why, I built sites for the users with pertinent information about exclusive products and, silly me, I mistakenly believed that since Google had been indexing them since the 1990s that they would know which were my original pages but no, they've been really kind and let the scrapers rip me off, some of them even adding their own Copyright notices!
They can't even get my company name in the index and where they do it is incorrect plus they won't even credit me with having world exclusive products and trademarks I have had for 30+ years!
What an absolutely, diabolical mess this crappy panda has turned into...far too much caffeine in its diet if you ask me:-)
So what do I do now, leave unproductive ad space for a few days and see if anything happens or just say googbye and good riddance?
Oh...and since they smashed everything apart I may as well go "noarchive" as well I suppose?

Well the month is almost over and I have had my biggest Adsense month since January of 2011. Still far short of 2010, but it looks like it's getting better.

I'm now 75% of the way to Xmas Day's earnings...whoopydoo...with an incredible USD 0.20 EPC...now, now, don't get jealous:-)

I've got that beat! My stats have been stuck since Feb 25th.
Do you know what it is called when you get run over by a PhD driving a runaway train? Googled.

Crawling back from the Panda bust, about 80% there in earnings. Imps still down, but eCPM has risen, helping to offset the blow.

Ok...Bragging rights to go...my single biggest URL channel today is at 30.75% of this month's average CTR and 111% of the year's page impressions...does that suck?
Man, is this panda chewing its anu$?

This May's earnings were almost exactly 200% of my previous best May. I just missed an all time high, but I am pleased with a new #2 as I move into highest earning months.

Uh. Well. I don't always check my stats on more than a daily basis, but CTR at 0.33. yup.
It's funny at this point. I'm rooting for it to go lower, since I'd hardly lose any more money. Let's break a record!

May is gone. More earnings than any previous may, but consider JAN to APR being way lower than previous years, so the total of this year so far is below previous years. I declare two sites as dead, lower traffic but way ridiculous earnings... 3 to 5 clicks the whole month (pure original content and pictures). I will remove Adsense from those sites.
But my best website, also pure original content and pictures (but got copied many times) is up, at least some good news.
Short story: two sites went dead but one went up with 140% earnings.
