Come on G, shake things up a bit, you're becoming far too predictable!

Hi m0thman
Like many others my earnings have dropped since January, Google is responsible due to the stupid Panda update - my adsense earning are now about 20% of what is was before (not great before but ok) - now the advert that is following me around is getting on my nerves, I already have hosting with them (and others) and will not be buying another web hosting service.
I am literally buying fertile chicken eggs (done that earlier with eBay UK) - that is what I was looking for and bought (I have a very broody chicken that needs something to do other than attack me when I go out to get our eggs from our free range chickens).
So I might be in the market for anything to do with chickens or living on a small holding - but not a scarey follow me around advert for web hosting.
If I had shares in Google I would sell them now, before they crash!

And...everything is up to snuff now! Better than yesterday...something fishy going on me thinks. All I know after watching income decrease slowly over the last 6-7 months I couldn't help but think the worst...this morning really scared the crap out of me!

If you think that Google constantly trying to tweek and re-invent the wheel (both SERPS & Adsense) is fishy.

So far, July has been pretty awful - often the day starts of quite well, and I'm getting good money for my clicks, but it just diminishes before the end of the day. Very poor by comparison to the past two months, so I hope things pick up soon.

What a strange Tuesday.

Normally my click values start off low and increase in value throughout the day, yesterday was completely the opposite...how does that happen?

Same new pattern for me Huskypup and hasn't benefited me at all. I'd prefer to see it start low and climb upwards, so that I wake up to something positive.

Fortunately during the 6 weeks or so where I've had to live from Google Ads alone, it has been kind to me. Now I can start up my other forms of income, as Google Ads alone is too unpredictable for me.

You accidentally clicked on the "Time Warp" checkbox in your Adsense dashboard.

One of the worst days ever yesterday...
Of course it was a holiday weekend, let's hope it goes up from here!

"Time Warp" checkbox


Did that happen when I visited the new interface to check the performance > country metrics and when I closed it automatically it signalled to G that I was satisfied with my EPC and then decided to steadily reduce it throughout the remainder of the day?

If so, yep, that's what I did:-)

July started really low due to the holliday but now I can't seem to get my stats up to my daily post panda average. Amazons stats are not helping sales are limited to a few books.

Incredible/horrible eCPM (1.11 euro)!
It will be worst than week-end :o

Stats looking awful here - hoping for a correction, as visitor numbers have slowly increased over last month.

First five days of July gone. Earnings at 40%. Here's to hoping today turns that trend around.

My hamsters have been executed at point blank range, I don't know what's going on today! Hope they bring me some replacements soon.

Hey the replacements came sooner than I thought - CPC shot up 200% in the past few minutes and earnings are now looking good. Keep working hard little hammies - you're always replaceable.

Dishonest little hamsters - my earnings shot back down again an hour later. I know a lot of people have experienced this in the past, but this is the first time on Adsense (and I've been with Adsense for many eyars) that I've seen my earnings shoot downwards.
Looks like it will still be an average day, which is definitely an improvement on the past week.

What the heck happened yesterday? My second biggest earning site's metrics were blown out of the water having its worst-ever day since 2003 with post-Panda 2.1 figures of:

Clicks at 45.9%
CTR at 38.5%
eCPM at 19.5%
Earnings at 23.2%
EPC at 50.5%

Nope, nothing broken whatsoever, no data loss, everything's working absolutely fine...for Google...and the hamsters have done a runner, even they don't believe the BS coming out of the plex any more.

Yesterday closed at 30%. Most page impressions by far all month, but one of the lowest earnings day too? OK AdSense, if you say so. :-|

Yesterday's CTR was atrocious and the day would have been a complete disaster had it not been for a $6 click.
