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'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.

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.
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.
