Slow start to what should be a killer month for me.

Looks real close to the May earnings for me, which is bleak. Last year was much better.

Looking like the lowest day in several years for me.

Dead all day here too.

I eclipsed yesterday which was about 40% of what I used to average prior to 6 months ago for a couple few years. Today I might get beyond 50% of what I got in the average day. In other words, snafu. I used to eat steak, now it's Kraft Dinner. It's food so who's complaining?

I'm in Europe, and I used to be able to hit the pillow and wake up to a pleasant number of clicks and earnings from my friends over the pond, but these days I wake up to relatively fewer and fewer clicks.
With that said my EPC is very positive at the moment, and earnings for Wednesday were well above average, though given how lousy Tuesday was, it sort of balances itself out.

Adsense is a complete waste of time.
I dropped it off most of my sites, as they're clearly finding any reason to discount clicks. With every month it get's worse and worse.
Screw you Google, find someone else to shaft. I Suggest anyone not making a good return do the same. Google makes money off adsense / adwords? Not if we all drop it. Hit them where it hurts (& if it won't hurt you).

Normal impressions day however one of my lowest-ever CTRs at 63% of 2012 average, thanks to the UK and USA my EPC was hauled back up to 2012 average.
No one seems to be clicking in my industry, actual clicks are now about 7-8% of just a few years ago.

Good day yesterday; more than made up for a slow Tuesday.

for 4-5 days adsense is totally crazy, for example
@6am I have $6 @7am I have $8 @8am I have $4

I could use a few of those. My earnings were under 20% of average. Congrats netmeg!

0 clicks since yesterday AdSense blindness syndrome?
2:27 pm on Jun 7, 2012 (gmt 0)
Just blew past earnings for all day yesterday in a few clicks and it's not even 7:30am here. How AdSense is tallying things up seems to be getting further and further removed from any kind of schedule I can figure.

Yep. Having a killer day again.
8:06 pm on Jun 7, 2012 (gmt 0)
Unchanged since 7:30am (about 5.5 hours)

Very mediocre here.

Yesterday earnings closed at 50% of average. Long ways to go.
7:20 am on Jun 8, 2012 (gmt 0)
Wow, I've been averaging lately about 50% of normal. I've had some of my lowest days in about 3-4 years sprinkled in there. In a sadistic way I'm happy to report that I made an "all time low" of this new earnings era (Jan 2012-Current). I would dig through my old stats just to see, but why bother. Emotionally I've cut ties with expectations. I'll take what I can get. Beyond that? I can't say it here.

Another pathetic day with Google figures that bear little relation to the real world. Not even the occasional "big click" to support my CPA theory.
I guess a lot of potential Adsense publishers must find threads like this when researching how much they might earn. If I was just starting today I wouldn't touch Adsense with the proverbial ten footer but would be looking for alternatives. Adsense income is just too variable - getting lower - and information from Google too sparse.

After the first 7 days I now have a new lower level compared to May:
Great trend eh? If I keep losing 33%+ every couple of months by Xmas I'll be at about 20% of where I am now...however AdSense will have been long gone by then since I most likely won't even reach the minimum payout.
Wow, I should've scanned those UPS cheques and framed them.

WooHoo, I'm flying today, so far 0.01 in earnings!

Adsense control panel seems slow to update today...
1:32 pm on Jun 8, 2012 (gmt 0)
Awful today. I've just changed all my text/image and image only ads to text only - thought I'd give it a whirl for a week. I know Adsense like to suggest doing it the other way around and making text only, image as well, but that never worked well for me.
1:43 pm on Jun 8, 2012 (gmt 0)
I had some bad luck with EPC on images, but I don't think I let it test long enough. I started rotating them back in on a 4 out of 10 impressions basis, and let it sit for a week, and now the EPC is around $.71/click for them, which I'll take. So now they're in full rotation.
I don't put them on the same ad unit though - I have a text only ad and an image only ad, and rotate them. So if one starts performing badly, I can lessen the rotation or take it out on my end.

Does anyone know what timezones are used for adsense vs analytics daily reporting?
I notice that for a specific page on my site I have 130+ views so far today according to Analytics, but in Adsense control panel only 60+ are showing.
Either the Adsense control panel is lagging or maybe it's "day" starts later? (e.g I'm GMT+0 and Analytics seems to base it's days on GMT+0 as well, perhaps Adsense is always on California time?).
2:09 pm on Jun 8, 2012 (gmt 0)
GMT -8 for adsense. I don't see why they should be different.
2:37 pm on Jun 8, 2012 (gmt 0)
Thanks LW, that makes sense then.
I assume Analytics is GMT as I've set that in my account settings...

I can say that I haven't had breakfast yet, and I'm pretty much at my total earnings from yesterday. This is what I've been used to for a couple years. I have about what, 15 hours left and I've made now what I made in 24hrs yesterday. Never seen this before. As I'm saying to myself, snafu. Good to go sir!

AdSense is always set to Pacific time; Analytics to whatever you set it for when you set it up.
