Stats stuck.

Weblog shows things as normal. Adsense is way behind.

I could use one of those myself. Down 95% from yesterday to today. I was just reinstated (gambling was my crime) on Monday after being kicked out back in October, 2010. Probably should have applied for reinstatement sooner, but, as of today, I am reminded why I hate Google so much.

BTW: is is just me or does anyone else hate the current user interface, dashboard or whatever they're calling it these days?

fearlessrick, I love the new interface. The other one was getting long in the tooth and this new one has graphs, views by countries, ads types, etc. It did need some getting used to.

January could have been my highest earning month of all time, but hackers messed with my site, and I had almost a week of very low earnings. Still finished quite reasonably in the end, and now February has arrived, it's off to a positive start.

koan, I think you're right that the new interface takes some getting used to. I am in that process now.

Earnings improved to a reasonable level late yesterday, BTW, so I'm also learning to love Google... well, maybe love is too strong a word. ;0

I've gotten used to the new interface and now prefer it. There's a lot more information, if you know where to look for it.

Yesterday, February 1, was the 2nd best AdSense day of the year for me.
My best day was January 26.
Impressions hitting all-time highs - I guess Panda "turned me loose".
CTR about the same - historically low for all of 2011.
EPC not so great, historically speaking.

Best January in 4 years with Adsense, and a 13% increase over Jan 2011.

Horrid January. Page views were up, clicks were up from previous month but income was 50% of prior year's monthly average. Basically my income has regressed to 2008 levels. And February is not looking good either.

Things are looking up this end. Gone from 0.23% CTR to 0.46% </sarcasm>
Has 2012 Superbore started yet ? that may have some bearing on things.

We really need a more positive thread... I'm not a tree hugger, but this is pointless. How about "february's new earnings opportunities"?

Complaining has never led to anything.

I'm having my ups and downs just like everybody else... Guess what? Complaining never solved anything!
Internet started out in the '60s as a way of
exchanging info (.mil style, but that's not the point). How about taking it back? How about sharing info on what works, rather than on what doesn't...?

Did anyone experiencing an increase in revenue get the adsense emails saying ad more units? Did you follow the advice? Did your rankings hold?

I hate that the adsense team says add more units and the quality team may penalize you as a result. They really should talk to each other and work that out before sending mixed messages.

What you need to remember is that Adsense is the biggest income generator for Google and to that end, I would hazard a guess that they hold more sway with the directors than the self appointed "senior fellows" and "distinguished engineers" on the search side. After all, it is adsense that pays their wages.

The adsense team are and always have been consistent with their advice whereas Cutts and Co put out so much conflicting information, it is more or less impossible to know exactly what they do want.

This month looks great so far for me. Great being slightly above normal averages. I hope it stays and/or climbs.

I don't see reporting stuck stats as complaining.

When my account seems dead, I come here to see if it's an adsense issue or an issue with just my account.

> How about sharing info on what works, rather than on what doesn't...?

You have a good point there zerillos although I wonder how may folks on this forum are doing particularly well with adsense. Just like real life, you only hear from somebody when something goes wrong - not when it is going well.

Having said that, there is a sticky post on this forum (want to earn more with adsense) but it points to threads that are either locked out to non paying members or are somewhat on the old side.

Since you broached the subject, why not start a new thread along those lines and see what happens.
