Stats stuck.

Weblog shows things as normal. Adsense is way behind.

Still stuck dead here. Hopefully the USA servers have yet to update, otherwise today does not look good at all. :-(

Well yesterday was fantastic for me. The thing is when I checked my costume channels, I received ONE click for $31.57 ? With Google's cut, that's crazy! And believe me, my niche is not high earning. I won't complain.

The UK is laid flat on its back with all four bulldog paws in the air for me, it's being thrashed by Canada, France, Georgia, Thailand, Malaysia...I could go on however it is very evident that something is very, very wrong with UK reporting, for me.

I've had some weird reports too. Uzbekistan, Aruba, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Palestinian Territories, Burkina Faso, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan all beat France!

Comparing last year to this year. First 57 days adsense income is down 19%. Traffic has increased by 17% for same period. The one thing that is fu@#ing it up is the CTR. which is way down.

Stats were not looking good last night, but as I've woken up this morning I have an excellent number of clicks and a good CPC, hence great earnings. I've had only one 'way above average' day in February, but it has been a consistently good month, and if it doesn't beat my best month ever, it's certainly going to come in close.

@zarathustra2011

Congrats to you. Always good to hear that there are people still doing well with AdSense. I don't really know why it's tanked for me, hopefully things will improve in March.

I've had some weird reports too.


From which country would be the most unlikely?

I've had a couple of clicks from Myanmar [Burma] in the last few days, things must be opening up there.

So...not even half a Google Day gone as yet and in comparison to the last few days EPC 163% and eCPM 197%, already I have exceeded those average daily earnings.

Fingers crossed I'm getting back to 2012 normality, early 2011 average would be far too much to expect:-)

The ones I mentioned... Uzbekistan, Aruba, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Palestinian Territories, Burkina Faso, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. I rarely get a click from any of those, let alone beating France in the earnings.

I can understand the "stans" as I receive a number of visitors from the military. I receive a number of visitors from Guam too.

BTW, crap day today. Strange for a monday, esp after having a great weekend.

Thanks Play_Bach - goodness knows I need the luck at the moment. Fingers crossed for you in March; you've got to have a lucky streak some time!

Getting worse here as far as CTR. I hope March I make a comeback because this is not normal, even for this part of the year.

I have noticed that only U.S. traffic is performing badly for me at least.

I also want to point out something strange im seeing in adsense reporting.

When I go to full reports and I click on site earnings, I am now seeing impressions for both widgets.com and www.widgets.com. But, that is not the highly puzzling thing about it. Before I used to see maybe 10 impressions a month for widgets.com and the rest would be listed under www.widgets.com but for the last few days its been around 120 impressions each day for widgets.com. It then gets even more strange because I have 2 totally different domains each with exactly 120 impressions a day for the last few days under the .com and normal results are under www.com.

This is throwing off my ctrs for sure, but I dont understand why it is doing this because I have made no changes. And why would 2 different domains have the exact same impressions under this scene.

Hope this makes sense.....

Changes of all kinds "may" be a result of a Panda update that hit last Sunday night to Monday morning. Discovered the news about Panda 3.3 while looking for reasons why my stats have suddenly rebounded after a lackluster couple of weeks.

Do you have your site set so that either www redirects to non-www, or vice versa?

Yet another way below average day in Google GarbageLand. So comparing like for like Feb 1-28 2012 v 2011:

CTR 59.3%
EPC 88.5%
eCPM 52.2%
Earnings 44.3%

I'm getting too old for all this cr@p!

Reporting is seriously screwball, or traffic is. Never seen such lows, ever! Now, stupid question time : how do you tell which countries you're getting adsense clicks from? Seems like quite a few people are reporting this country / that country, etc....

This February was an excellent surprise :)

Feb 2012 vs 2011

Revenue +50%
Reported Page views +100%
Reported clicks +100%

But the traffic (unique visitors) is almost the same => more ads displayed, but lower eCPM by 40%...

This is good, but this growth rate in page views is not sustainable...
I have now 35% more employs!

The basic idea is to invest, in order to keep up the pace.
The internet is growing too damn fast!

@anteck, It's under the Performance Reports tab -- click "Countries" in the left hand menu. :)

@snickles121 - yes, you probably should. Otherwise, Google indexes both the www and the non www version of your site, people link to the wrong one, you get clicks on both (and technically they're different URLs) and it's just a best practice to pick one as the official site address, and redirect the other one.

Not sure what to make of February stats.

I'm comparing 2/11 to the first 28 days of 2/12. And Panda started on 2/24/11 so that complicates things a bit.

Anyhow in 2/12 I had 59% of 2/11 traffic but earned 81% of 2/11 money. Those stats were a real surprise to me, much better than I expected, especially the money numbers.

Overall I feel fine about that.
