Stats stuck.

Weblog shows things as normal. Adsense is way behind.

The day started well but quickly tailed off... could be the Super Bowl effect, maybe? Sticky chicken-wing fingers and keyboards don't mix, it seems.

Yeah I think I got superbowled too. Pretty bad day, even for a sunday.

I've never been affected by the Superbowl in previous years however I was trucking along nicely and then WHAM!...It came to a grinding halt. Pity really since Saturday was good in comparison to recent days.

Dead? Banjaxed? Have all of the hamsters gone off to watch the SuperBowl or something? Good day Sunday but absolutely lousy today. These stats must be jammed.

My take is; Sunday was Superbowl, Monday was the hangover! A slow start on Tuesday.

Strange, for me Sunday was OK and Monday was the peste day in February. (good eCPM).
After few hours, I see a promising eCPM for today.

February is always my second slowest month (November is slowest) and I use it to spend time on development - both to (hopefully) improve the sites, and also to take my mind off the fact that it's the second slowest month. There's always *something* to fix / improve / redesign / expand upon.

Amazing. Best earnings day since mid September 2011. Unfortunately, it's just slightly above what was a normal AdSense day for years on end, but nice to see nonetheless. Hope it continues!

Yesterday was a surprising day out of the blue. About a 75% increase on normal earnings, and my earnings (asides from the week I was hacked) have been incredibly steady the past couple of months, almost to the nearest dollar each day.

Stats show a 20% boost in Ad Requests yesterday. Looking forward to how today shapes up.

low ctr only concern these days...
12:25 pm on Feb 9, 2012 (gmt 0)



Low CTRs and wildly fluctuating EPCs are my concerns, for instance Wednesday's EPC was 140% of Tuesday's but clicks were 81.4%.

Delving further I find that my USA EPC for Tuesday was 64.5% of 2012 average and my lowest USA EPC day of 2012.

For once this month my CTR is normal today. This whole month has been way off target at around 50% CTR. This is way off from this time last year.

EPC has been at normal levels all month.

Also I noticed is a lot of lagging in account stats lately. Today seem fine.

My USA CTR is abysmal so far today, never did I think I'd see Serbia and Montenegro as my second-biggest earner!

Way low today here too. :-(

January was 50% of what we made in January of 2011 - more traffic, yet half the earnings.

Riddle me THAT Batman.

All sites in finance.

Woke up to a weird huge spike in ad impressions - that isn't reflected in Statcounter or Analytics. No idea where it came from. So far.
3:29 pm on Feb 10, 2012 (gmt 0)



Hahaha...just went to look at my stats for today and CTR lowest level for this year at exactly 50% meanwhile my EPC is averaging precisely 200%...hey ho status quo!

Have the hamsters have frozen up?

Things have taken a nose dive in the last three days...hmmm

I noticed something about our adsense for yesterday - clicks tripled while RPC dropped by about 1/3 - essentially a "normal" day as far as the total goes - but i've never seen such a spike in clicks with a corresponding drop in RPC - has anyone else seen this?

Aside from this the trend has been relatively normal except for a small spike on tuesday

Yesterday earnings closed at just 20% of average. Today not looking great so far either...hmmm...8:30AM here...is it too early to hit the pub?

is it too early to hit the pub?


It's 5.15 pm, -3C, 6" of snow on the ground, live band playing at 8 pm, it's never too early to hit the pub:-)

My sites get 90% of their traffic from Spain. My earning during January 2012 dropped 70% compared to 2011. And I got 20% more traffic than last year. I think "someone" made changes on the Adsense algorithm.. It has nothign to do with panda, since I got 20% more traffic than last years, even on the best converting keywords..

My CTR was halved overnight on 6th May 2011.

Have you seen a gradual decline or the same as me?

5+ Year Member



Mine wasnīt halved overnight, but from february 2011 itīs constanly going down, like a slow death..

What a strange Friday earnings from the USA:

Clicks 69.7%
CTR 83.7%
EPC 146.4%
eCPM 120.7%
Earnings 98.75%

My CTR would probably be a lot better if I wasn't getting golf club and truck driving ads on my Linux pages.
