Really stuck today, or is it just me?

Strange. Analytics is showing much higher than normal visits today (probably 25-30% higher)...but my Adsense stats are showing much lower page views than what is typical at this time of day.

Are other people seeing their Adsense stats stuck too? Based on the traffic I'm seeing, I would expect to see much higher numbers in the Adsense reporting area.

(And I checked, and it's not just bounces. It looks like real traffic that should be hitting my sites, but so far it isn't translating into Adsense stats.)

Yeah, think it's stuck. At least that's what I hope. :)

I really hope both Analytics and AdSense are stuck otherwise I have a big decrease in traffic problem.

Cpc down. Looks like Google is not feeling generous today. Will see tomorrow if the final earning recovers.

Yesterday earnings somehow made it to 50% even with the 2/3 drop in search queries that started on September 29. Strange days indeed.

Extremely low UK CTR yesterday otherwise ok.

Once again tablets did well with a 5.5% CTR for the first 4 days with my best average EPC and 21.7% of earnings from 4.4% of of overall page views!

The majority of these tablet clicks came overnight therefore it's mostly US/CA.

Is everyone keeping quiet because they're doing extremely well and don't want to jinx it or have the recent updates banjaxed many?

Low page views for me me on Friday, specifically my Coppermine Gallery which is way down these days but still with a good EPC. UK CTR very low again as was its EPC.

The bright news, again, were tablets and mobiles generating 53.1% of the earnings with ~USD 0.70 EPC from 6.3% of overall page views. These earnings were evidently all from the US.

I don't post much anymore, as my main site has been obliterated by the latest updates, despite it is not an EMD, I've never paid for traffic, and have plenty of organic, natural traffic from some great sources. Articles and images I've written and photographed, seem to be no longer attributed to me since the 28th September, and naturally Adsense has plummeted. I've given up on it for now, and so don't check my account very often. I'm focusing my attention on making money from other means. Google's all but dead to me.

Yesterday earnings ended up at 40%. Looking at my webmaster tools shows a massive drop in search queries starting September 29 which has yet to recover. It's now down to about 1/4, so I'm pretty surprised to be earning even 40% given the stats.

Traffic down tenfold due to these updates(EMD+Panda same time), so is Adsense as well. Adsense relies a lot on search traffic no wonder things are looking so bleak. Really demotivated to check the Adsense stats now. Things are as dead as can be. Not even a glimmer of hope yet from this disastrous update.

I know precisely where you're coming from. I've spent all afternoon analysing stats and charts for the last few years and my Coppermine Gallery has been hit so many times now that it's traffic is less than 25% of only 2-3 years ago.

Why these updates should be taking it out on a unique image gallery I have no idea but then again scraping Google doesn't mind promoting other scrapers to rank above the original.

Therefore I've been experimenting with various sized pages on big/medium/small/tablet and mobile screens to determine which to use when I rebuild this gallery by hand. I've been left with no choice now, there has been too much money disappearing off the table and I have to assume it's a Google dislike for Coppermine over its own stuff.

Now pencil to paper to design the architecture!

Currently running at 40% earnings again. Seeing a slight uptick in search queries as of October 4, so maybe things are begininng to turn around? I can only hope so, as this EMD update (or whatever algo tweak is responsible) has definitely hit, and hit hard.

Friday was the first day in 2012 where I earned more money with Adsense than I did in the same day 2011. Yesterday was the second day.

Well done breeks! More traffic/clicks/CTR/EPC?

Once again a Saturday has been one of my best days of the week and once again tablets & mobiles delivered 35.3% of earnings.

So far this month mobiles etc have made 28.8% of earnings and already after 6 days ~36.9% of September's mobile total.

And back down it goes. Yesterday earnings at 25%. Google traffic and search queries at near all time lows. :-(

Those butt-ugly arrows are not helping matters. They have reappeared on IE8, but they are no longer universally blue.

I may pull adsense altogether. I'd rather lose a few Łk a month than make my site look shi*ty.

Dire. Targeting is absolutely useless too.

Bad yesterday, bad today. Columbus Day here, no major holiday, yet people are off work/school and not surfing the web.

Kind of apt - Columbus was looking for India, got lost and didn't even find America. Google on the other hand... :)

Ah, Columbus. The man who "discovered" America years after the vikings, and never set foot on main land USA.

Back on topic, I don't think Columbus Day has much to do with things. I am averaging 12,200 unique (daily) visitors over a seven day period. I am on 10,000 already today, and with 5.5 hours still to go. So the visitors are coming, but they are not clicking. Maybe their eyes are bleeding from looking at those butt-ugly arrows. ;)

Back to normal average Monday. It could because it was holiday in Canada (Thanksgiving day).

Not completely dead for me today but I'm way down and have had a massive invasion of off topic ads.
