I expressed that very poorly, this month is already ahead of last month. Anything else now in remaining days is total BONUS for the month.

Yes I'm historically entering the best time of the year for me in my genre.

Yesterday earnings ended at 35% which was just enough to beat July. I don't expect to get back to March levels this month, but if the current upward trend holds, may be able to get there by the end of the year.

Now I'm getting 'blackouts' with massively dropping EPC. The end of August sucks, but will still finish the month on good earnings.

End of august is excellent. Serious up and downs on earnings though.

Got the same 'blackout' problems I had a couple of weeks back. All afternoon, and no clicks - all other stats moving normally. Something is wrong. Combined with low EPC, could end up being my worst day in months.

RCPM is going nutso today. Like almost 300% what it was yesterday. I've already earned at noon today what I earned all day yesterday. This is scary... looking through analytics to see if I can figure out what's going on so I can make sure it stays that way!

So far a horribly low EPC from the US today...go on someone, kick it into gear!

I had 3 days this month that earned between .57 to 1.20 for a 24 hour period! I have up and downs but that was so far off it wasn't funny.

Today made up for the low days.

Now i wonder if google holds clicks and then adds them to the following day. I haven't been able to figure out why I have some serious up and downs while traffic stays steady.

I made some significant site updates this month and revenue has been off the pace by at least 25%. Today is the first day that hasn't sucked since the beginning of the month. I'm not yet confident that it's any of my doing and not just some Adsense aberration. It wouldn't be the first time. I'm going to cross my fingers and continue to monitor the site.

Suddenly having a really big day out of the blue - on a Tuesday when most of my traffic comes on the weekends; can't help wondering if these are older clicks that were only now validated.
5:42 am on Aug 29, 2012 (gmt 0)



Interesting to see several people reporting a surprisingly good Tuesday. Unfortunately I've had a Tuesday even worse than the dreadful normal for the last few months, suddenly down another 25%.

This definitely suggests a "tweak" at the plex, and I'm part of the collateral damage. So with apologies to those who did well out of it, I'm crossing my fingers that this change is reversed.

My click count stopped moving hours ago. About forty minutes left in the day here for any kind of an update to happen, otherwise I'm looking at earnings at around 40%.
10:47 am on Aug 29, 2012 (gmt 0)



Fortunately some decent overnight value clicks from the US dragged my earnings up to 94.5% of August average otherwise it was looking extremely dire last night.

And I just did a stupid thing and compared against the same period August 2010, my click volume is 27%, earnings 32.6% with EPC 120% ... I'm going to resist the temptation to go any further back!

Slow day here. Hopefully things will pick up!

Been about 6 hours since Adsense has logged a click. In the meantime, impressions increase at a normal rate while CTR and RPM fade from good to awful. Hopefully there's a click dump due.

Still dead. Either they're way behind and there's an update coming soon or today is going to be another very low earner. Here's to hoping its the former.

Nope. Never moved :-(

Lowish clicks, but high EPC meant Wednesday finished on a high.

Nope

Never looked at stats over hours even, back to June, 2003.

And I still don't. Since 2003 I have religiously logged in every morning, sometimes even in an evening [my time].

Check in all the times you like and you will not influence the figures. That is called "living in reality".

Nine years now, nothing's changed, logging in never advances "impressions", CTR or EPC.

Maybe I was born behind the door and missed out on all these wonderments.

I dunno.

Wednesday's earnings 112.1% of August average with click volume 96%, fortunately EPC 116.6% since CTR 83.9%

@IanCP - At one time AdSense was updated on a regular basis and a few years back in real-time which was great fun to watch and especially so when earnings were 1000% higher, however these days it's impossible to know anything until the next day and even then it sometimes changes.

I remember the days when I could accurately predict to within 10% my day's earnings only halfway through a Googleday...even after 2/3 days my month's earnings!

I can still do this most days by 12 Noon with the data I see from AdSense.

Same as.

even after 2/3 days my month's earnings!
I used to work out my monthy earnings after 4 days.

Dead today. Adsense used to work but then Google messed it up - a bit like Google search really!

I got into the habit of looking at "yesterday" stats to really see how things are, and they have been consistently low all week. Checking in, yesterday was bad as well, yet today looks good. I had been ignoring the "today so far" earnings and stats because they haven't moved much at all during the day, but today is another story.

The decrease of traffic is probably got to do of students going back to school, the upcoming labor day weekend, and the tropical storm in the US.

This month has turned out to be the best since last April, subject to any claw back. Maybe the slide is reversing?

Yesterday earnings ended up at 40%. The good news is August is up about 25% from July, so at least the downward direction appears to have been reversed somewhat (modest gain that it is). Here's to hoping September will be even better!

July was a good month for me, so I would have been very content if August matched it. Unfortunately that's not going to happen, but it's not that far behind, so can't grumble.
11:23 am on Aug 31, 2012 (gmt 0)



August has turned out to be my best month ever, Adsense wise, and traffic wise.
2:12 pm on Aug 31, 2012 (gmt 0)



Today's well and truly stuck for me, very low page views and only just registering a CTR!

Yesterday's earnings 135.9% of August average with clicks and CTR at 133% and EPC 100%.
