So far, off to a slow start.

Friday and Saturday have been the worst earnings in my AdSense history...puzzled.

@JCKline Sorry to hear it. Not any better here either. AdSense has all but collapsed for me. Oh well, it was great fun while it lasted!

Just filled in the survey, lots of unhappy faces.

Interesting to see they've dropped the question about consistency of earnings. Looks like they've had to admit it doesn't exist.

Last few months have been very promising. Hopefully November continues this way.

Ok, I know there's the hurricane warning however Saturday was my third to lowest and Sunday my second to lowest Page Views of 2012 after Easter Sunday making them the 4th and 3rd lowest-ever of all my AdSense time.

US Page Views were 50% of average. Fortunately the CTR was almost double making them average earning days, don't people on the Eastern Seaboard click?

This one isn't just the Eastern Seaboard, HP. A full third of the US is going to be affected - we're under a high wind warning here (60mph+) starting at noon our time, and I'm as far west as Michigan (we're considered Midwest)

A good portion of the country isn't going to be working or clicking, and if the power outages are bad, it'll be all week.

On the other hand, this would probably be a great time to run commercials on The Weather Channel.

Traffic down today. I'm U.S. centered, so I imagine it has to do with the hurricane since the East Coast seems pretty much shut down.

I've been blown away with the increase in CTR, and i'm flooded with orders. :)
Only downside is the CPC has dropped a bit.

My traffic is way down today. I assume it's due to the hurricane. I am in the mountains of NC and we're getting hit with snow and high winds. Power has been flickering off and on. Very unusual for us this time of year - so yes... I'd say Sandy is taking it's toll on our earnings as well. If it's the same way in two weeks - then I'd be concerned.

Although most of my traffic comes from the States, I haven't seen a drop in visitors. More people from the westside of the States visit more than the east side, so that may have a bearing on things.

I'm seeing a drop in visitors and a huge drop in CPC/RCPM, but an increase in CTR oddly enough. Just started on Monday so I'm hope it'll go back to normal when the hurricane passes...

Today seems slightly better than yesterday but I'm not sure if it is yesterday's earnings. The link on the main site here has been a bit flakey but the earnings for October have been a bit better than those for September.

Google is having issues today...most likely related to Sandy. YouTube was down for a few minutes and ads are loading slow.

Adsense was down for about 5 minutes.

Very good today. October broke my September record. I wonder what my December earnings will be since it's my high earning month. Very happy!

October for me ended as follows v September:

Clicks 107%
EPC 93.1%
Earnings 97.3%

Only one day in the last seven achieved the month's average.
