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...

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!>
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.
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.
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.
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
