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

So far earnings are at about 50% of all day yesterday. I guess that's good.

I was wondering when you would start this thread. It is already past noon here... ;)

@HuskyPup That raises the prospect of Adsense "predicting" earnings and paying accordingly. :)

Has anything moved much in the last 2 hours?

Seriously.

Please don't start new threads here, just report status, thanks

My apologies that a few posts were lost, too hard to split them back here, sorry.

Normally I wouldnt do this, but I think Azlinda's topic is important enough, hope you all are understanding

TIA

wow, lowest stats I ever saw. Looks as if my servers were shut off. Someone did warn me about 3rd and 4th of July stats are historically low but never like this. Looks like Amazon Associates are paying for my time online.

This weekend has been rather brutal. Low traffic (to be expected) but really low eCPM...

Arghh...my post was lost!

Surprisingly Sunday was normal for me, my company.cn site kept that up, but Saturday had my lowest day's earnings since Xmas Day 2010 and my second lowest click volume since Xmas Day 2008.

Congratulations on your independence from us Brits, however, it's currently shaping up to be a bad day as a consequence. :(

Terrible... I'll try not to assume it's the new site design and ad positions that caused this :-( Wait a couple of weeks and see before poking around again.
2:45 pm on Jul 4, 2011 (gmt 0)



My AdSense metrics have hardly moved in 4 hours however my logs are showing quite a reasonable traffic day so far...stuck!
4:47 pm on Jul 4, 2011 (gmt 0)



Yesterday was dire, but today's doing well thus far.

I hope US will be in shape tomorrow, because it was a terrible week-end :(

Best ever.

USD 0.50 less than Sunday but with 45% more impressions and 10% more clicks!

Is there anyone around here who remembers "The Crazy World of Arthur Brown"? I reckon I'll get it re-done as "The Crazy World of Google Adsense":-)

After having pretty decent CTR over the weekend (which didn't pan out in good earnings because of poor US holiday weekend traffic) I am now back to normal traffic but once again battling an atrocious CTR. This is a pattern I've seen since Panda hit where I can never seem to get firing on all cylinders at once.

I had decent traffic, CTR, and earnings over the weekend. Nothing fabulous, but nothing to complain about. Today, on the other hand, is starting out very, very well. I'm guessing holiday weekend clicks are finally arriving.

I came on here to see if anything was brewing today...my stats are sooo strange! VERY low today...never in the last 9 years have I seen this...so I thought it was a glitch. If I'm the only one...I'm extremely nervous!
6:01 pm on Jul 5, 2011 (gmt 0)



If I'm the only one...


I'm seeing a very low click volume but with a much higher than EPC average from the USA and UK.

Thanks Huskypup. It's looking like the impressions are the only thing "normal" on the report.. very low EPC & click thru. Yesterday was actually a little better than normal.

CTR is very low today.

Every site I visit for the last 3 days that has adsense on it shows me the same damn advert for a certain hosting website - Google is way off in it's targetted advertising is all I can say, dump your stupid targetting advertising and go back to interest based adverts. If I am on a website about buying chicken eggs I am not going to buy web hosting.

I just noticed a "platform" option in AdSense for viewing stats based on, you guessd it, platforms. Is this new or have I somehow missed this? I was shocked to see how much of my earnings come from smartphones without me adding any fancy stuff for them.

Interesting you should mention that. I met with my sister at the weekend and she doesn't really know much about AdSense or ads for that matter. I was talking about work and some of the problems we're facing at the moment and she commented that she had noticed the same ads for fridges and freezers on a lot of the pages she had visited. She HAD been shopping around for one and I believe made a purchase, but the ads were all still showing her what she WAS interested in some time ago. Even the 'common folk' out there are presumably starting to notice ads following them around. According to my sister she just ignored them because she was no longer interested.

Personally, I can't in all honestly believe that interest based targeting is working, for visitors, advertisers or publishers. Presumably it's working for someone though because it's still there.
