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

Thanks netmeg and JCKline.
Gotta look into that stuff I guess.

Well, my website is absolutely dead today. I'm thinking of putting it in a pine box and giving it a decent frontier burial.

How bad is today? If this was a Panda algo for Adsense publishers then I've been hit. Trust me folks, this is well below 50%. Yesterday may beat today. I'm suggesting I'm down about 75%. I can honestly report that this is beyond my comprehension. Ironically the more I report here the my reports seem to get...

Maybe we can get a group rate. Horrible here too.

Coffin? In for one!

The sawtooth is coming back, though Wednesday has been okay. Very average day.

Earnings yesterday climbed back up to 35% of average, ending four straight days at 15%. Here's to hoping the upward trend continues.

not only earnings are miserable these days but I still didn't receive my adsense check issued on May25th though it usually comes the first week of the month, so nothing good to say about adsense these days :(

The upside is that my US EPC is the best I have ever seen it, unfortunately it's only 45.2% of my clicks.
The downside is click volume overall is 73.7% of last month with CTR 84.9%.
The Panduin has, once again and for whatever reason, smashed my Coppermine gallery even further, I still cannot fathom out why, therefore my overall page views are now way, way down on previous months and years, and I do not mean by 5/10/20%, start thinging in the 60% region!
After searching around several fora I have now resigned myself to Coppermine being on the Panduins' hit list since it is plainly obvious others have been hit too. Why an exclusive gallery with exclusive widget pictures should be in the extermination queue is beyond me therefore I have decided to just let it be and get on with other things.
Another good thing is that, at the moment, my B&M sites are holding steady and at a time of almost global turmoil in the construction industry this surely ought to bode well for the upturn ... when and if it ever comes!
Have I reached the bottom? Obviously I do not know but something has to give somewhere otherwise my global industry is facing its worst-ever catastrophe since the 30s.
FWIW, for the next couple of years, our group is now re-implementing a marketing strategy we had during the 80's and 90s back to a world before one-turn-of-the-dial and you're screwed.
</Sorry I went a bit off topic however I need to get some of my rationale into what's happening overall, not all of us market downloadable or cheap to click and ship stuff and hopefully it may help someone else wondering just what the heck is happening!>

(I don't think Google entirely knows how to deal with image galleries; you're not the only one I've heard with that issue - but that's for the SEO forum)
Going okay here. A few ups and downs, but way up over last year still.

Today looks promising.

Yesterday was a waste of bandwidth, today looks much better, but slow.

My month is still going strong. I shut off eBay RSS-based ads to the site and while traffic hasn't changed (or really clicks increase for that matter much) CPM is up 30-40%. At this rate I'll not re-enable the eBay feed.

Great day so far

In full form now - a return to the good ole days.

Is anyone else seeing this unclickable ad by martini media with four clouds in it? What a stupid way to waste ad space...

Now things are stuck.

Yesterday was best day of the month, today already ahead of yesterday with almost half a day to go.
9:22 pm on Jun 21, 2012 (gmt 0)
There is a completely unexpected eclipse today. Squeaked past yesterday with just under half day left. I'll save you checking, my last 2 days were 2 of the worst days I've had in about 4 years. Today I feel a bit chipper with this pure bounce back day.

Frozen here for the last several hours too.

Thursday's concluded as a very good day - second highest in the past three months.
3:29 pm on Jun 22, 2012 (gmt 0)
Thursday turned out to be the best day all month, but didn't make up for the previous three days. There must have been an AdSense wide click dump? Today is looking good so far as well.

Good run coming to and end, and a violent downswing is in the making today.
7:59 pm on Jun 22, 2012 (gmt 0)
Wow. I woke up to an impressive amount, but checking in 4-5 hours later has yielded about +$1. Wow wow wow. I'm not going to fret over this. I know I'll get to that 50% of norm at some point today. Ironically it's starting to rain here.

Don't lose the faith with adsense, just knock out "your, you, we and I" in the content and the SEO results will perform. Try and cut out twitter and facebook, do the SEO for Google, not them!

and in other news, water is wet.

From one of my best days of the month to the worst - here comes the sawtooth.
9:50 am on Jun 23, 2012 (gmt 0)
Yesterday earnings closed up at 60% of average, making it the best day all month. June is still way under, but nice to see something over 20% for a change. May the upward trend continue!
5:31 pm on Jun 23, 2012 (gmt 0)
To get back to reality, MY earnings Friday ended average, and today is very slow. How are YOU doing today with YOUR earnings? I hope WE have better results by the end of the day. Sorry Paul_t, I couldn't resist. :D
