August 2011 was better than I expected, is everyone ready to get back to work and do some serious clicking in September?

I ended with my highest click day of the month with EPC at 87%, since 15th Sept my average EPC has been noticeably lower.
Compared to the same period 2010 my earnings are 43.7% with click volume at 46.1%...that Panda is sure chewing my earnings.

AdSense today is not off to a good start.

Today looks very promising indeed.

I've come to the conclusion that there is no reason to pay attention to my adsense stats for the day, only the previous day. My US clicks don't seem to show until late at night when I prefer to be sleeping. This has been the trend for me all month. It looks really bad, then ends up "almost" average in "most cases", otherwise it remains garbage. So I can't take anything I see today as "real".

Yep, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that very little seems to be updated until the last 6 hours these days, my stats have been stuck for hours this afternoon.

That's the smart thing to do, get more work done that way too but seems to be a hard habit to break.

This day last year earnings were double what I'm on track to get today. :-(

Wednesday slightly above average, Thursday off to a slow start.

Horrible EPC on Thursday resulting in my lowest weekday of September at 73.9% of September average.
10:57 am on Sep 23, 2011 (gmt 0)
Horrible is right. Yesterday closed at barely 20% of average. :-(

Yesterday was probably the worst day for me as well, should we get worried or do you think things will improve?

Arghhh...I've got Vodafone SIMs ads all over my sites again...they're blocked but Google's letting them through under a different URL I suppose.
4:13 pm on Sep 23, 2011 (gmt 0)
Thursday well above average, Friday looks bad so far...

I think things will only improve when Google doesn't have such a large share of the search market. Personally, I haven't used Google Search for months now, preferring to go with an engine that does not record IP addresses. You'll have to hand it to Google making Google an everyday verb.

Which search engine is that?
(I don't keep up on all this stuff as much as I probably should.)
Yesterday was the worst day all month. Today started OK and now is stuck, as usual. Have to check tomorrow to see how today REALLY IS.
6:53 pm on Sep 24, 2011 (gmt 0)
Stuck here too. Well, I hope so anyway!

Very slow with 50% CPC today.
9:45 pm on Sep 24, 2011 (gmt 0)
Yesterday was rubbish, today's even worse (CPC in the pennies).
10:35 am on Sep 25, 2011 (gmt 0)
Oh:-) Saturday was my second highest earning day of the month...normal traffic however CTR 145% and EPC 123%...a roller coaster week, difference between lowest earning day to highest 178%!
11:56 am on Sep 25, 2011 (gmt 0)
Yesterday, earnings made it to 30% sometime in the early afternoon, then just stayed there. Hope today is better.
12:38 pm on Sep 25, 2011 (gmt 0)
Yesterday turned out okay in the end. CPC was in the pennies all day, then I woke up and CPC had reverted to its usual amount. Must have been (yet another!) system glitch.

Did something happen yesterday? It's like Adsense disappeared on the site for 99% of the day?
5:35 pm on Sep 25, 2011 (gmt 0)
I've noticed the slow stats as well over the last couple weeks, which then end up about average to below average. I was wndering if there have been any patterns from others observed. I've noticed for example a decrease in CTR, which may have something to do with it. Has anyone noticed a change in targetting quality maybe?
9:03 am on Sep 26, 2011 (gmt 0)
Yucky Sunday, third lowest clicks, CTR and earnings day of the month, page impressions normal and even though it's early in the Google day this morning I am flat lining, apart from page impressions I'm reading zeroes across the board!
12:20 pm on Sep 26, 2011 (gmt 0)
Yesterday was another low earner here too. 40% of average and only 1/3 as much as the same day last year.
7:49 am on Sep 27, 2011 (gmt 0)
both monday and sunday were well above average
7:46 pm on Sep 27, 2011 (gmt 0)
My RPM has been down Monday and today, but I've noticed that a majority of my ads are for the youtube channel firtvideo. Seems they have targeted my site, which isn't a dating site.
I thought site targeted ads were supposed to increase revenue. Anyone else seeing these ads?

I have been loving Adsense since a week ago last Sunday. It's like a switch went off overnight and my eCPM doubled, and my CTR went up some. Things are back to where they were pre-Panda, but my traffic is higher, and so are my daily totals. I don't know if suddenly a whole bunch of advertisers rolled out their pre-Christmas campaigns, or what changed? I didn't change anything. The upswing coincided with the confirmation I can attend the Adsense in Your Town event in November (and I had to give my main site URL in the little application). Hmm.
I also had a dramatic downturn a few months ago, which coincided exactly with another G person checking out my websites. Someone had stolen all of the content from one of my newer sites, and I reported that to Blogger (owned by G), which was where the offending site was hosted. That site got all of their content removed, but suddenly my eCPM and CTR crashed and burn that same week. But I doubt the Blogger people work with the Adsense people - it was probably just a weird coincidence.
