@MrSavage
> I have about what, 15 hours left and I've made now what I made in 24hrs yesterday.

Sounds like my yesterday!
Unfortunately, today so far is dead. :-(

I've had some really chunky (that means good) clicks. Reminds me of about 6 months ago. I'm holding breath right now. Holding steady....hold steady....don't lose it in the turn! I've smashed yesterdays earnings and I've just finished my lunch. Adsense mon amour don't let me down.

I've had some days like that in the past fortnight, where it's just gone crazy. I've no idea what other people are seeing on my site, because I always see the same old ads. Maybe it does have something to do with those vouchers they're giving out, as somebody mentioned previously. After a few back to back days, I begin to think the goods times are back, but then it nose dives again. Totally unpredictable.

Absolutely dire. Wonder if they've lost data when churning out all those press releases.

Still early days, but the effects of text only ads, doesn't seem to dazzle at the moment. I'll keep it for a week, and then might try image only, or just revert back to image/text.

I just noticed one of my text ads was in Arabic, and the two ads above and one below, are bold (as usual), with a non-bold URL. Because the language is written right to left, it has a bold URL and a normal (non-bold) font for a title.

My worst-ever AdSense day since its inception.

Earnings were less than 3% of my best days, pathetic doesn't even begin to describe my feelings towards this company.

Right with you HuskyPup. Yesterday click count down to 1/40th what it was in 2009. There's just no way!

Slightly down yesterday - but still up considerably from last month’s average figures.

Seem to have more clicks for the time of day, since switching to text only, but EPC is down about 40% too.

Brilliant number of clicks, but EPC is lower than I can ever remember. If it continues I'll have to revert back to image/text and take fewer clicks with a better payout.

Mine are all coming in little mini click dumps. Nothing for an hour or two, and then a whole bunch, then another half hour with nothing, then another clump, etc.

EPC holds up for me.

CTR still in the sewer

Traffic gutted by Panda, Penguin, Gorilla, Pluto, Daffy Duck and Mickey Mouse.

Nothing I can personally control, so I don't worry about it. Obviously someone is winning [including Google] otherwise alarm bells would be ringing at Google.

Seeing krap search results yesterday, with a plethora of ads in up to the first six or seven positions, I think Google reckons 100% revenue is far better than 32%.

I wonder if Google "smart price" themselves and back out invalid clicks?

Late night climax here. Not sure this is a click dump, but certainly at this time I don't move the dial much. A few chunky clicks and I'll catch up to yesterday. Only one hour to go!

Ended with a higher number of clicks and CTR, but rubbish EPC.. I'll continue the experiment a bit longer, but I don't think text only is going to suit my site. Ironically my best performing ad of all time is one of my rare text only ads.

Yesterday earnings down again to 25% of average. So far, June has been a bust. :-(

Hi Zarathustra,

You mention good original content, is it good content though? I was told by a PR guy in a very big PR organisation that google dislike content with the words "you" "your" "we" and "I" and he told me to never use these words in any content or google marks it down.

They work in PR..therefore they use "us"..and "we"for the purposes of feigning sincerity.."us" and "we" are "inclusive" :) trust what they say ..they sincerely mean to help you..it is even possible that they have published a cheap ebook about these "how to do well in organic search" and adsense "tips"..:)

Confusing causation with correlation is exceedingly common when dealing with Google , especially when dealing with adsense..

Hi Zarathustra,

Yes knock out those four words in the content, I even struggle to do it.

I run a financial forum in the UK and i'm so used to using phrases like in content of "You can take out a payday loan" rather than what I should say is "A potential customer of payday loans" get the drift?
