I will start this thread this time, by saying I just got switched to the new payment page and I have *finalized* earnings today? Didn't realize that went with the package.

USA and UK EPC is at a new time high this morning, and even India is dishing out 50 cent clicks, whereas normally I get pennies. No idea what's going on, but please continue doing maintenance!

India's my second largest source of page views and clicks, unfortunately I never get any 50 cent clicks, I average around the 8 cent mark plus India's CTR is 150% of my average.

Off to a terrible start after a week of steady earnings. CTR and CPC half usual. Will see how the day plays out but if no change would be a record low for the last five years.

India's usually about 3rd on my list below USA and UK, and normally only pays around 8 cents too on average. Not sure what happened to India today.
Today's is going extremely well. If it keeps up, may be a record for the year.

Yesterday was one of my best days in months, all metrics back up to almost what they were this time last year.

Today, with a depressing inevitability, things are back down deep in the gutter.

Has anyone noticed any changes in the adsense font sizes?

I have a couple of sites with Arial Small as the default across all ads and I've noticed in the last couple of days the ads are displaying in a larger font size. CTR is down 50% also which I'm guessing may be related...

The font size does seem bigger on some of my ads. I'm not sure if it's helping, but if things continue today, I might well have my highest paying Adsense day of all time.

Haven't beaten my best ever day which was on the 1st December 2011, but it is my 3rd best day, and not far off my 2nd best. Very happy, especially as Friday's usually are one of my worst days of the week.

Below average earnings and traffic Friday, the last two days seem to have been very quiet for me.

Today is starting off with a bang! Hope it keeps up like this as I have all of 2011 and 2012 to make up for.

Not a good day here, but I have an issue with the way some ads are displaying that I had to send to support. (I'm giving them a workout now, that's for sure)

Epc is way high here. Looks like I'm set to break a record earning today. Amazing!

Yesterday finished comparitively well for me, third highest day post-Penguin (but still less than half my September 2010 average).

No record breaking but it was close. My earnings have been above average since last week which is amazing. Is Google being generous again or is because it's the start of advertising season? I'm glad I didn't quit Google when my earning was down 2 years ago. Now I'm quite happy with my daily average. 5 more years of sacrifice then my mortgage will be paid off in full. What's amazing is that the value of my house which I bought 8 years ago has almost doubled in my area. Thanks, Google!

RPM and visitor numbers have increased very substantially over the last two weeks and today, over both my accounts, income is superb and there are still a few hours to go.

Something somewhere has significantly changed, what is it?
