So far, off to a slow start.

Slightly above average but not much. Still happy though, as long as it is not below average.

Down, down, down it goes. Yesterday earnings at 12% of average.

Disappointing EPC average again Tuesday dragging down earnings.

Today seems to have stopped altogether, lowest CTR I've ever seen...come on Hamsters!

Are stats stuck? Anyone else?

Mine definitely were but released overnight ending up with an average day almost all round except for my EPC which is noticeably down again.

Looks like people are back from vacation. Wednesday was solid, back to above average again. Yay! Thanks, Goog!

Fantastic day yesterday (after being stuck for most of the day). Great figures recently

Yesterday had a shockingly low click count. Looking more and more like the party is over. :-(

Yep, I had some trade widget EMDs with unusual and extremely low page views therefore obviously earnings etc.

First thing this morning I checked the SERPs and things looked normal however I've given up on my Coppermine Gallery ever recovering.

At the moment my B&M brand sites are doing fine with AdSense and some are actually seeing both growth in traffic and earnings however I have to agree that the party's over since Google seems to have spat its dummy out and thrown everything else there could possibly be, with the bathwater.

We're concentrating more and more real-world trade fairs again with at least SIX planned for 2013, I haven't had to do that since the mid 90s!

Listen Google, I am a real-world, major physical producer of my widgets, yet you let MFA scrapers and scumbags take over the Net plus these people also don't have a cat in hell's chance of supplying my widgets, in fact almost any type of widgets, yet you let them carry on serving your ads.

Knowledge engine? You're very, very far from it when you can't even serve the original article/product/information for almost any query these days.

Had a nice ten day run of decent earnings, looks like it's ending today unfortunately.

My earnings have shot up since I changed the advert size to small font.

My earnings went up by $80+ a day by simply moving an ad block 3 pixels. This stuff can be REALLY sensitive to placement and format. A/B testing is essential.

It's official. I'm toast. Lowest click count and earnings since the first week of signing up with AdSense in 2004. :-(

It's official. I'm toast.


It looks as though I may be joining you! CTR at less than 50% of average with click volume on par with Sunday summer days similar to Xmas Eve and New Year's Day.

For the first time ever this month has seen my B&M sites out-earn my trade widget directory site, the one with the Coppermine Gallery.

Whatever Google's overall thinking is it sure as hell isn't anything to do with quality or uniqueness because this is at a time when our real-world B&M sales are at their best in 4-5 years.

Yesterday was lowest day of the month, today already passed yesterday's earnings with half a day to go. The usual roller coaster ride.

Same here, but today is looking no better. In fact, my YouTube earning are a close second to my site's earnings...just dismal.

Yet another strange day with my lowest page views for two months however CTR was 156.7% with clicks at 116.7% but EPC 85.2%.

The result? Earnings were 99.8% of October average so far!

So far today, earnings at 50% of average. I just don't understand what is going on anymore. From a complete collapse on Oct 12 to this? Anybody else seeing same?

Normal average level this weekend. I hope it comes back to above average this Monday. *fingers crossed
10:55 am on Oct 15, 2012 (gmt 0)



Good grief ... Tablets and mobiles registered 50.2% of my total page views yesterday!

I'm assuming that someone from the US downloaded my entire Coppermine Gallery since it had its highest page views of the year.

Anybody else seeing same?


Yep, all over the place, the only predictable thing at the moment is its unpredictability.

Aha...'Twas a visitation from Mountain View!

Are they re-indexing their recent image cock-up update?

Monday started like I was going to get below average earning for the first time in months but it surprised me again to finish slightly above average. Wheeewww!
