Will the downwards spiral continue for some of us? Why do the supposed big earners hardly ever post?

Confused? "These questionsóand many othersówill be answered in this month's episode of...AdSense."

Dire bottom line today, very low CTR and EPC. But the CTR is close enough to what my logs say and the EPC is expected on the last day of a month. So the numbers are probably right.

This is going to end up having been my worst month for at least two years. Makes me wonder why I bothered spending the last two years writing original content.

It's now about 8:00 pm here and since 10:00 am (3 clicks), now only 4 clicks. I won't even break a dollar. Unless a miracle click dump comes before the end of the day...but VERY doubtful. At least yesterday numbers split make the two days average. :(

Last three days have been very good, but I don't know if it's just an anomaly. Very bad May, and only up $100 on April, which was dire too. I am hoping the last few days of May will continue onwards into June, but now I fully appreciate how fickle Adsense can be, I shan't be counting on it.

Here's to hoping June is better :-|

Clicks seem to be stuck this afternoon - nothing for the past couple of hours, which is odd to say the least.

Here are my numbers, May 2012 compared to May 2011:

Earnings: UP 69%
Traffic: DOWN 11%
CTR: UP 37%

The picture isn't as rosy as it appears at first glance: Panda 1.0 severely mauled my stats until the third week of July 2011. I feel like I've lost a year thanks to Google's fixing things that weren't broken.

Lol...very early start this morning to avoid all the holiday traffic for the long Jubilee weekend, it worked, got there and back before the crazies hit the road!

It's June already? Another 20 days and the nights will start drawing in:-(

Thanks for that depressing thought! Don't want another winter where it gets down to -19C, pipes all frozen and only an electric radiator to keep warm.

Goodbye May, hello June. Long may we all prosper.
