Yesterday ennded low as Sundays often do for me, but in general things are picking up a little now that I reverted back to all text/image ads a week ago.

Summer season dip in full swing - not much going on at this end.

AbSense revenue....

Mum & Dad are out with the kids on the beach / countryside, emptying wallets on ice-cream and excessive iphone / ipad data roaming.

Good EPC today but awful CTR, nearly half of August's average so far.

Had best weekend since 1st weekend in July both with CTR and Traffic so I'm hoping I'm coming out of the summer slowdown.

Finally, good number of clicks matched to a good EPC today, normally it's always been one or the other.

Things stopped moving for me completely, as I'm free, FREE, FREE of AdSense.

Not completely free. There's still an AdSense unit on your homepage.

Was it national no clicking day in the USA yesterday?

Page views normal but both click volume and CTR at 50%, fortunately my EPC was good otherwise overall earnings could have been horrible.

All low - minus 20 to 30 percent in comparison to July, it should be minus 10 to 15 for my sites (at least when compared to previous years).

Yesterday was full of great promise, but no idea what happened overnight. Ended up finishing on a very average day. This morning shows no promise whatsoever, so I'll probably end up having a great day. Another lesson in why it's pointless checking the stats too often. I'll wait until tomorrow before I take another peek.

I can't believe it. I had a click worth $11.63. Now I wish I could have 100 more of those :)

July revenue was 34% lower than June. Im going to starve to death.

August is looking better but still crappy.

Yesterday ended below the "new" average, and today looks bad. My CTR is great, yet the CPC has dropped off to penny clicks over the last two days. This is annoying! But not enough for me to do what azlinda did. Some is better than nothing at this point.

Summer LowSense days - advertisers & clickers drifting far apart.

Maybe 'cold turkey' adsense rehab might help. A month without Adsense on all sites. Kickass detox for Senseholics.

Afterall it's just an insignificant blib in Google's anti-cyclic "record breaking" 2012 Adsense revenue.

The Tuesday that showed no promise whatsoever did indeed blossom into my best day for the past month, not through quantity of clicks, but a very high EPC.

And now my Wednesday's kicking off with two dollar clicks - if it continues I may be able to overtake July after all.

Once again a very low CTR day with earnings half that of Saturday, yes, you read that correctly, half that of Saturday and also 62% of Sunday, plus Monday and Tuesday have also been my worst two days in nearly 3 weeks...page views completely normal...hmmm

Yesterday was brilliant for me - even after they took off a chunk of it. I've no idea why it was like the way it was. I couldn't see anything out of the oridinary. Hope it lasts.

Yet another diabolical CTR from the USA today. Monday and Tuesday were 50% of the previous 10 days and today is 25%...WTF!

Today looks great, as if what I should have gotten yesterday rolled over to today, plus todays earnings. A little more and both days will even out to average.

The second half of the year is usually somewhat of a slump for us, but July was better than usual. This month is shaping up as our worst EVER if it keeps going like this. Each day has been worse than the previous and traffic is even going up a little. CTR is half of normal and CPC is lower than running average every day. RPM is off 30% overall. Either people are tired of clicking G-ads, or G is serving some pretty useless ones these days. Can't keep things running much longer on this pittance.
