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.

Yesterday didn't start of well, but finished way above average, and this morning is starting well (very high EPC). I think advertisers are improving on the slow run up to Christmas - most people here seem to be reporting the benefits. If this continues I will have my best ever month with Adsense since I started many years ago.

i got a good question for you all.

my visitor stats are up enormously (almost 200%) in comparison to last year. Yet my adsense earnings are almost half of what they were last year (down by 40%). Can anyone explain this to me?

Was there a holiday in the US yesterday?

Strange US metrics for me with easily the lowest Sunday Page Views since Easter Sunday at 50.4%, click volume was precisely 100% with CTR 197.1%. Unfortunately my EPC was also easily the month's lowest at 61.7%, the next lowest being 78.7%.

Therefore not only US but overall earnings were down at 74.8% even though clicks were 103.6% ... I don't like strange blips like this, makes me feel something's going on.

More less relevant visitors.

BTW 9-11% is phenomenal, in even my UPS club days I was nowhere near that, best-ever was about 7% but that was 5 & 6 years ago and that didn't last for long.

Yesterday was another relatively high earner compared to most of the last year with a 70% average. That's two days in row for no reason I can see. I'm very glad to see numbers like this again, but it's making me really wonder what happened to all of 2011 and 2012. What is going on?

Or, they are relevant visitors, but not in the buying mood.

Yesterday was decent the main reason being the CPC is way up, traffic steady.

Things have been going a lot better lately in April I had hit a goal of $10,000 in 10 months of using Adsense. But things started to slow during mid April and got worse the months of May, June and July. I went from $10,000 to doing $5000 for each of those 3 months. Then in Mid August things picked up leaving me with a little over $8000 for the month.

Now September has just been super amazing! In the first 15 days I did over $10,000! I am trying to end the month with $20,000+ If things keep going I should reach the $20,000 mark on Sept 29th.

Hope we all make a million bucks!

Flying today.
My CTR has always between 1 and 2%, but it's been a little closer towards 2% this past month.

Blimey, don't let me down Google! I haven't seen metrics like this since before May 6th 2011 when my Coppermine Gallery was hammered.

My trade widget site has nearly had its best day of 2012 with more than 13 hours to go. Normal Page Views with simply a 200+% CTR and excellent EPC...dumbstruck!

Some of these numbers really amaze me.

Personally 2012 is the worst year yet for me using adsenses. Whereas i did over 3000 euro's in july 2011 I only made about 2500 euro's this july. August went down even further (due to season endings) (site is about campings in the NL). September is major worse. If i calculate this entire month i will end up with only 1100 to maybe 1200 euro's where the same month last year did almost 2000 with only half of the visitors. The CRT between the two months is only down by 2-3%. Visitors are up by 90%.

If anyone got some good pointers to earning more money with my sites, please contact me (pm) I can then also give you more details.

There's one pinned to the top of this forum.

Apart from that, you need to do the digging.

Excellent Monday. Looks like it's the start of advertising season. I notice that google gives good ranking to sites that have fresh content. Finally my daily update is paying off. Getting above average earnings for two weeks now.

New highest day of the year but only just by 50 cents more.

For me there was obviously an academic project somewhere in the UK since one of my specialist urls had a 7,244% increase in page views!

Methinks a lot of students will all be going to class with the same copy and paste answers:-)

Very pleased with Monday's final total also. I hope this is caused by an increase in advertiser quality/spend and not some glitch created in the last maintenance window.

I'm not sure whether it's the Panduin twins messing about or an updation delay however the last 6/7 hours have been my worst-ever...it was looking good, at the moment jiggered.

Not sure what is going on, but the last few days (10) has been the best I ever had. For first time in more than 10 years I got my first $200 day. The earnings have increase about 25% this month.

A new record. Record low for a day.

Actually less than the very first 20 minutes of AdSense earnings in June, 2003 [from memory].

Krap traffic, krap CTR, krap EPC

Considering everything a very poor Tuesday, now why have the Panduin twins hit my Coppermine Gallery again? Things were starting to get back to reasonably normalish but the last four days have seen its lowest page views ever but, at the same time, a really strong EPC at over USD 1.00 per click.

It's bizarre, I can't get click values like this on my meaty B&M sites, something's well screwed-up with Stupid Pricing (TM)...again.

@puckparches - we are in the same boat. All my sites' CPC are up. It could be the upcoming election; many advertisers spending money. Or Google just feels generous to make webmaster happy. Have you seen their Market share lately? It's a whopping $700 plus per share - even higher than Apple's.

@jbayabas I'm glad you are doing well, and I hope it gets better for everyone. After working for years on the site it's time for everyone to do well.
