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.

Things seem to be on an upswing today with almost real-time data. This gave me a theory. I wonder if G updates stats in real time more often in the beginning of the month, periodically adjusting earnings, and as the end of the month approaches, there is a significant slow down to determine finalized earnings without showing a big reduction. This may explain the "click dump" theory along with periodic deductions. If all was in real-time, then huge deductions were suddenly shown in the finalized earnings, we'd have a real fit. Make sense?

I vouch for the real time thing. I saw $27 a few mins back. Verified by opening my account in another browser. 15mins later they were cut to $14. Nice!

My figures have been updating rather nice today...

Sept kicked off exceptionally well but I have seen a saw tooth pattern with earnings.....

Aug finished 12% higher that July.

Starting dismally for me. Ick. I'm cringing. Hope it's because it's labor day weekend and people are out and about and it's Saturday. September is usually one of the best months for me. Of course... that was long ago before Panda (April 2011)

Same here.

Mine is finalized too, lost 3% in the process... Even though its finalized, it's not the final finalization yet:) Nowadays final finalization is MIB...

Anyway, earnings are stuck for quite few hours and I don't expect much because my cashcow is having a long weekend.

I lost thirty six cents. I can live with that. But it's nice not to have to wait a whole week for finalized numbers.

I lost more than thirty six cents :/

Finalized is 99.65% of Estimate. This is better than previous months where I was just under 99%.

99.88% this month... woohoo!

Does anyone know if payments come sooner with the new payment page / system? I thought I read on their blog that money will be sent via EFT just days after finalized earnings... which... well, just happened for many of us. Did the payment schedule really move forward that much? Or am I misinterpreting something...
9:44 am on Sep 2, 2012 (gmt 0)



My finalised earnings are at 98.65% of estimated. I can accept this, especially if there isn't too much deducted for "Invalid activity" later in the month.

Lost about 2 per cent this month -- better than the 4 pc last month.

I have not seen or heard anything that would indicate that. Assume it's still the last week of the month.

Best day of the month for me on Saturday:-)
2:36 pm on Sep 2, 2012 (gmt 0)



Oh, just found August's thread locked!

August v July earnings 117.1%

August finalised earnings 99.33%

Question for those who lost more than one percent: Do you happen to run ads on youtube too?

Kicked Butt yesterday almost back to the good old days, looking good today also, hope its lasts but know it won't.

Hoping for a click dump today! Egads. Frightening.

Great day yesterday, even better today.

Yeah that's what I was afraid of. Here's what I was talking about:

[adsense.blogspot.com...]

Once your account has been upgraded to our new system, EFT payments will appear in your bank account just days after posting to your Payments page.


Maybe I misinterpreted.

Well getting back to Sept earnings and observations, yesterday ended slightly below average, and today is all but dead...really dead.
6:56 pm on Sep 2, 2012 (gmt 0)



@JCKline - that would be exactly the same for me. Nothing has picked up.

Dead again here. :-(

USA public holiday weekends kill me.
11:29 am on Sep 3, 2012 (gmt 0)



My Sunday continued in the same vein as the last four Sundays at 50% of average earnings, traffic normal with 75% CTR...very frustrating after a good Saturday.

Even thought today is a holiday today blew Sept 1-2 out of the water and it is only 1:53 pm.

And one again I have no real clue why. Gotta love $1+ clicks... :)
