July was a bit of a roller coaster for me but with August being a big holiday month I wonder what it will (not) bring?

I seem to have unusually low traffic today after several good days of mostly increasing numbers...I'm putting mine down to the weekend!

Stats seem stuck. No clicks and impressions haven't moved much all day.
6:52 pm on Aug 13, 2011 (gmt 0)
Click count just moved up a tiny bit (finally!).

Anyone notice Google changed up the 336x280 ads again? Yesterday my CTR was horrendous, but today it's good, and I just noticed the new ads yesterday on Internet Explorer. I'm still getting the old style on Firefox. They took away the underlined URL, and the fonts are smaller again, and even though I have mine set to Arial, Verdana is showing up. Anyway, I don't know what to think yet. The last few months my 336x280 ads have sucked, so hopefully this will be a change for the better?

My 336 blocks URLs are still underlined. Once in a while I'll see them without the underlines, but that's the minority. I think Google is still testing the underlines and maybe the placement next to the title. My hope is that both of these changes will be reversed, but that's only going to happen if the data is there to back up my hunch that both of these things make the 336 weaker than it was before.

Play_Bach, I've seen the new format on every site I've visited today on IE - Verdana font, size small, without the underlining on the title or the URL. On Firefox everything is still showing the old format they've had for the last few months. Weird. The URL is still next to the title.

Saturday 13th August was easily my lowest traffic and impressions day since Xmas 2010 however my CTR was better than recently and my EPC was firm therefore not a Xmas Day level of earnings...did I miss something?

Friday was very poor for me, but a very good Saturday, and a promising start to Sunday.

Was looking promising - I assumed I had a 4 hour block on the Adsense stats, only to find my hosting company have been messing about with something, and my website has actually been down for that period of time. Probably not going to be a great day now!

My average eCPM is holding up nicely. Now if only I could get back to my pre-Panda traffic levels. Geeze, I'd be wouldn't even mind if I only had as much traffic as I did in 2003 when I signed up with AdSense.
I'm alive, AdSense wise, because my average click value has gone up a lot. I'm guessing that is because the traffic I do get is a lot more focused on the topic of the page(s) they visit, but that's just a guess.

Same here ken_b, this day last year traffic was nearly double and earnings triple. :-|
3:02 am on Aug 15, 2011 (gmt 0)
Exactly the same here, Play_Bach.
10:07 am on Aug 15, 2011 (gmt 0)
Tripley ditto...Again another low traffic weekend day, EPC normal but lowest click volume of the month, the same period 2010 and my clicks, eCPM and earnings were all 300% higher, overall I am at 48.44% v 1-14 August 2010 thanks to the higher EPC...very frustrating.
I can't see the Panda helping Google's earnings in my widget sector since the two main Chinese sites dominating now don't carry AdSense.

More proof that I should proof read my posts before hitting the post button.....
"I'd be wouldn't" = "I wouldn't" :)

Since once again I had *no power* all weekend and eventually ran both my iPad and my phone out of juice, I couldn't check stats till today. Better than I expected.
HP - I've seen some reports of improvements in Google image search over the past week, so maybe you're getting the good side of that - hope so.

I am up about 75% so far for august.

What, no power plugs in the car?

Yesterday earnings were the best so far this month (which isn't saying much). Closed at 70%

Ladies & Gentlemen, As the saying goes, we are 'flogging a dead horse'.
For many of us here at least, Adsense is dead. Yes, D, E, A, D.

Pretty good day yesterday, not looking that promising today, but who knows. I also use Google Base (or Merchant Centre, or whatever they call it these days), and have to say Google's personal email replies are superb. Really a shame they can't apply the same level of customer service to Adsense.

Couldn't find the blackberry charger (it was DARK!) and have been afraid to buy an iPad car charger lest it fry the iPad. But I gave in and ordered one yesterday.

Bad day so far. But given what those clueless bozos did to a good search index, it is not that much different from the trend.
6:09 pm on Aug 16, 2011 (gmt 0)
I am up 100% so far. I already beat what my check was last month a few days ago.
6:48 pm on Aug 16, 2011 (gmt 0)
With half the month gone I'm slightly ahead of June's total and the numbers haven't been this good since last Nov-Dec. Panda 2.3 has been a godsend, knock on wood, but will I be saying the same about P2.4? I luvs ya, Google, but the suspense is killing me.

Yesterday ended OK, but below average. Today is either stuck or the hamsters are dying, and the wheel is just rocking back-and-forth with each occasional twitch.

Bozo targeting. Completely rubbish day.
11:25 pm on Aug 16, 2011 (gmt 0)
I agree, jmcc.

horrible day great traffic, targeting is really strange today.
