Do we need to depress some of us for another month or, as coachm wrote:

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!


Game on!

Abysmal day yesterday which is the low point of a month long stair step gradual slide on a graph, settling to this new depressing low.

My numbers were way down yesterday, but I suspect they just didn't report them all same day.

That's not off-topic, it's another possible reason:-)

For me earnings took a 70% dip about the same time the "adchoices" text appear. Perhaps this is alerting visitors that these are adverts and dissuading them from clicking them!

I'm finding slightly lower ad clicks but much reduced cpc which is very depressing. Site traffic is unchanged though and holding steady!

Here in Brazil, the gains are very different from yours, but over the past months I'm 35% growth, but it must have much more visits.

Monday & Tuesday were good for us, then yesterday a dive... today worse so far. But I've learned not to dwell on any daytime stats. You really need to wait until the next day to see how it ends up. Sometimes they are behind on reporting clicks.

Yesterday closed in the last hour at 40%. My AdSense stats have really become hard to take seriously as any kind of a tool.

As Maximillian said, can not be based on day to day, but it's really hard not to compare, because we always want masi every day.

I like to do as they are the averages of oss earnings per week and am always having increase in earnings.

That's true. But yesterday's CTR was so incredibly bad I find myself unable to believe it. Makes me wonder if there's a reporting error.

Today's numbers are way high for the traffic. I'm thinking delayed reporting on some clicks, not all. For me, at least.

First eight days of June had been relatively stable with good (as opposed to the mess of the last few months) earnings. Today looks a bit dire - like there is some weird holiday being celebrated by the Adsense that involves some donation of earnings to some happy-clappy cause. Either the stats have been lagging today or they've banjaxed things again.

It's that infamous economical philosophy: They take your earnings to give it to the rich so that it trickles back to you in the form of higher employment and salaries... eventually. You should have checked out that specific agreement box when you signed up.

I've never seen such miserable earnings. Perversely my GF's site is doing rather well and I built the darn thing. I'm not going to touch a thing now. Turn my back on it and wait until sanity prevails. This could be viewed as sticking head in the sand, but does anyone have a better idea? Apart from the obvious, produce lots 'engaging content' that is...

So, this is not a normal glitch, it's smartpricing hit :(
Final figures are horror.

Back to normal.

I do not know whether it was just a glitch of whether blocking some of the irrelevant advertisers helped.

By back to normal, does this mean SNAFU?

It's 9am and I am at average daily earnings or what used to be avg daily earnings. That figure will have to be recalculated.

Remember last month how my main site saw ecpm crash quite unexplainably, well, this month the ecpm is significantly higher than normal for this same site. Its almost like adsense is owing up to a reporting error last month and making up for it this one. Its a pleasant surprise and difficult to know whether it will hold for rest of the month.

Its also a pity for me traffic has gone down somewhat over the last couple of weeks or else this month would match or even better April (based on the first 10 days of the month).
