I've stop looking at my stats for a while expecting things would turn out bad, but my summer related sites are really making a difference. The bad thing is without them I would say my main earning sites are doing really bad.
My stats are weird today, but in a good way. Every time I refresh earnings jump up. I wonder if clicks are trickling in that were held over during the week. Earnings, CTR and eCPM are abnormally high, almost at a full days earnings and it's still morning.
Yep, a bunch of these clicks are coming in from Wednesday when I switched all my ads to text only for a few hours to shake things up. I've been wondering why that change wasn't visible in AdSense. Now I know. I'll probably try this again soon to see if this kind of reporting lag is repeatable.
A three day lag? There I was wondering why the stats hadn't budged today. Sometimes I really wonder about Adsense. If the stats were going to be that badly lagged then they should really make an announcement.
I've just assumed they've lagged forever. They would need to announce they no longer lag. But by the numbers I've seen I don't think it's really a 3-day lag. I think SOME clicks lag for a variety of reasons.
I can't believe it. My traffic is already what it is by the end of the day. I've already earned as much as I have earned in any one day since the big hit on April 11. I can point to only one reason - changing the H1 headers to reflect the title meta tag.
Typical, have we really found a reason why the system is operating this way? I mean we look on this everyday and wonder for the dramatic fluctuations, but is it based on traffic or is it the Adsense system...
