August 2011 AdSense Earnings & Observations

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?

Pretty good day yesterday. The latter part of August is promising and should be on par with June and July's earnings.

Yesterday was also my best day in over a week with some obviously very good click values, impressions and CTR completely normal.

Hi everyone hows targeting today, I'm getting almost no clicks from 10 websites with different niches that's total of 3000 impressions. I also notice my uk related sites totally lost 50% of normal average.

And back down it goes. So far today, running about 30%.

@Play_Bach Are you getting click dumps near the end of the day?

Well, it looks like this month will end up with my making almost exactly what I made in August of 2003! Pathetic.

Day is almost over horrible!Please someone gloat they had a great day so i wont feel so bad.
10:16 am on Aug 25, 2011 (gmt 0)



A strange day, it started off badly with low click values then all of a sudden a rush of USD 1.35 clicks very early in the US day, then seemingly nothing for ages, in my evening more middle of the road value clicks and overnight another series of decent click values from the USA.

The result was an almost 115% of August daily earnings with 77% of earnings from the USA, well out of the norm.

August looks like it'll be up 15% from July. Panda is making me nervous though for September.

This is traditionally one of my slowest months, but it still is running 150% of 2010. Might cover a few sushi dinners. Spending lots of downtime on development though. <geeked>

Eleven hours into the day, click count frozen solid.

Thank god it's a case of stats being stuck. I was thinking there was something with my site. :(
7:33 am on Aug 26, 2011 (gmt 0)



Strange still have lost of sites zero click but lots of impressions.

> @Play_Bach Are you getting click dumps near the end of the day?

thechromeguy, yes this seems to be the pattern. Very slow or no updates for most of the day, then things start moving. Been a weird month. August 2011 payment is on track to be only 1/3 what it was a year ago.

Think there must have been a lag today, as in the space of 20 minutes, my earnings doubled with just a few added clicks.
2:19 pm on Aug 28, 2011 (gmt 0)



Oh! Quite easily my best post-Panda Saturday earnings and like a weekday. Click volume and CTR up on average, impressions normal, must investigate my SERPs!

Yesterday closed as the best day all month. Today is a different story, just 30% so far.

I've got the same problem I've had all along. The CTR is extremely low, and the CPC is high! The CTR is always low when there is a high CPC. I wish the ADSENSE ADVISER would explain why this is. There have never been any exceptions to it in my experience. And vice versa - when CTR is high, the CPC is low.
4:17 am on Aug 29, 2011 (gmt 0)



Today I have very high CTR, and very low CPC. Average money day.
2:15 pm on Aug 29, 2011 (gmt 0)



What an absolutely atrocious Sunday earnings at 54.5% of August's average and click volume at 67% resulting in my worst day of 2011. USA earnings were at 60% no doubt ably assisted by Irene!

Flatlined today. No clicks recorded at all today and the business day is over here. Perhaps the hamsters got flooded.

Mine was worse than that, Play_Bach. The CTR was the lowest ever also.
9:56 am on Aug 30, 2011 (gmt 0)



Monday's click volume and CTR were post-Panda normal however my EPC was 64% of the month's average, looks like earnings will be about 45% of August 2010 so the Panda is being very consistent in its downgrading application!

huge lag today, I hope things adjust by itself before the day ends.

I'm slowly but surely getting rid of AdSense on my site. I can make more elsewhere.

Not the best of August's, and not as good as June or July, but not terrible.
Today something wierd is going on. I've made almost a full day's earning, but with about 17 hours of the day left to go. I think somehow Google will be revising my earnings downwards very shortly!
