March was one heck of a roller coaster ride for me and many others, let's hope they've ironed out whatever it is they've been attempting to do!

Good pageviews, good number of clicks, but CPC is pretty low. Not a total disaster, but far from great.

CTR dropped significantly yesterday, with CPC staying normal. Possibly some missing clicks.

Was looking mighty promising this morning, then my hosting company had a massive DOS attack and everything went down for 3 hours. :(

What country do those clicks come from HuskyPup?


All over but principally, US, UK, Canada, OZ, NZ, India, China, South Africa, Thailand, Middle East...etc

So to yesterday and a bounce for me!

v April average so far earnings on Monday were 134.3%

Interestingly v Jan-Mar average they were at 99.77%

Click volume was 143.9%, highest this month
EPC at 95.6%
CTR 131.2%
Page views normal for a Monday

Even with three hours website down time, I'm currently doing better than yesterday for this time of day.

Huskypup - your diversity sounds similar to my own. USA typically pays the best for myself, and brings the most clicks. The UK, Scandinavian countries, Australia and Canada all fair quite well also.
How are things fairing today? I'm up on clicks, but normal pageviews, so I'm wondering if my ads are starting to improve.

Clicks are good here, then my CPC shot up, then a few minutes later it shot down, and I thought, here we go again. A few minutes later it shot up again, with several more clicks to boot, and now I'm doing better than Sunday. I think we can't trust the reporting - probably better to check it at the end of the day. If mine's to be trusted, I should be in for a good one today.

I had a huge click dump about 30 minutes ago. Now they have taken back 3/4 of it. I wasn't surprised as they often do that.

I've only ever once had a click dump that was taken back, and that was Adsense for search, and I was suspicious at the time, especially when it all came from one country.

Today is going exceedingly well, which amazes me given how much downtime I had this morning. I'm not sure if it's a result of my updated website (though the changes have been live for a good week and a half now), better serving ads, or what.
Long may it last, and may it spread to others.

Still unchanged here. Interesting how some are reporting AdSense stats as normal while others (like me!) see no signs of life.

I have also noticed that the earnings has gone way done, but with same clicks and views. why do I have this feeling that they have cut earnings and they are playing with the earnings everyday, always to the negative of the publisher.

Clicks are still stuck however Page Views look normal now, obviously an incredibly low CTR.

Blocked my first category. Ads from this category have been flooding my site for over a year and there was no way I could drill down to it to block because it wasn't available, until now. Hopefully blocking it will make a difference, hard to imagine it making it worse.

Found the old thread

I've given up screaming, with a CTR now less than 0.5% it's only a matter of time before this farce ends.

Hey, when did they remove the "last visited" info on the AdSense control panel?

Or did they move it?

Yikes, CTR on my site is nowhere near 0.5% - am I doing something wrong? Anyone willing to take a look please? Could it just be my niche?
