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

My July figures are up 20%+ from June.

Made some hefty changes on one of my sites and Adsense seems to be liking it.

If only my pre-panda 2.0 traffic returned - I'd be a very happy man! Increasing gradually, though.

My AdSense is in the $hit, it's just the depth that varies now.

Yep heading that way again. As for that damned Panda thing it looks like Google is trying to out-Bing Bing and failing. If this is the quality of the Search industry then the barrier to entry must be purely technological and financial.

How you can go from high $x-x-x a day to low $xx a day a few months later doesn't sit well with me. Boo you Adsense.

Worst month in the last 6 years.

Some very strange stuff with Firefox on Windows - some Adsense slots are hanging while loading. The same page in Chrome or IE works.

Today almost to $100! with Adsense wow I used to do that by 10 a.m before the Panda hell..

I can tell you this there are big cracks in this new also, or maybe they were there before and I could not see them. I am getting new sites to page 1 for multiple terms with the quickness for big terms with high comp and not many links (cheap links as well :).. Do not give up hope if your like me I don't take a slappen to kindly makes me come back harder and smarter.

Interesting - just got an email from a big international news/blog website, saying they're very sorry, but "Due to the recent changes in the Google search algorithm (Panda), we believe that it has become disadvantageous for ****** to duplicate your posts on our site."

I do have a blog (they share the content on their site), though it is a personal thing and not my source of income for Google Adsense. It seems many of the big websites have been badly affected and are doing everything they can to try and claw their way back up in the search results.

As to today's earnings - not a great day again. I've taken a look at my blocked URL list and have temporarily unblocked everybody for a day or two to see if it makes any difference.

This Wednesday was a perfect sh*tstorm. Almost all my sites tanked. Strange.

And I had my best earning's day since 27th June and all due to some very good click values.

For the first time ever, I think, my second biggest site beat my trade directory site and not by a small margin, it trounced it by 170%, it also beat Tuesday's EPC by 186% and Monday's EPC by 333%!

Just how the heck does that happen?

Yesterday closed at 70%. So far, not one day this month has made average.

Same problem Play_Bach - the last two months saw great results, and many days where payments went at least 25% above average. In the two weeks of July so far, I have had just 1 average day - every other day has been 20% down. Can't see any reason for such a discrepancy. I'm wondering if Adsense hasn't reached its peak.

Yesterday morning, I did the exact same thing. I reasoned that my blocked URL list was getting too old (dating back 6 years) and perhaps some domains had changed hands for the better. Yesterday closed as the best day by far I've had in the past 7 although that may have just been an anomaly. I'll have to wait and see.

Littlegiant - first click of the day paid out 70 cents, so I thought okay, looks promising today. Since then if the stats are accurate (which I certainly hope they're not), I've had extremely few clicks and those I have are paying badly. I'll give it another day or two, and may put my blocklist back up.

Exactly the same except I'm 60% down. Sigh.

But you know what, looking at my earnings chart since 2004, I see a solid upward trend in earnings. I also see periods where there are sudden plunges. After those plunges, earnings eventually crawl back up and the upward trend continues. Pretty much like the upward trend of stock price charts. I'm trying to keep positive.

zarathustra2011 - netmeg and Atomic keep reporting positive gains, so maybe there's still hope.

Ditto that. Went from earning a living to not being able to buy a pint of beer with a day's earnings. Very sad.

And after yesterday's grand showing, today so far, is back in the cr@pper...well, I did ask for it:

My CTR has dipped a bit since yesterday. Traffic is waaaaay up, though. So earnings have still been decent. But that's only two days. July is still looking good.

I guess there's always going to be winners.

Well since unblocking everything in my blocked list, I'm getting good payment per click, but the number of clicks has been greatly reduced, so at the moment it looks like my earnings won't change much. I'll run it for a week so I can better evaluate things.

How about time on site, pages viewed, and bounce rate? Did any of those change when you unblocked ads?

I cleaned out my block list a few months ago. Now I have maybe 10 URLs blocked. My earnings have never been better. Give it a while to see how it works over a week or so.

Thanks Atomic - I'll keep an eye on those stats, to see how it goes. At the moment, my earnings for the time of day are an improvement on other days in July, but I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything until the Google day has come to an end.

Blocked, Unblocked, etc., hasn't helped me in the least this month. If it looks like s#it, and smells like s#it, it's probably S#IT...or AdSense!

Well, at least Google is happy. Their profits were up 36% the last quarter!
