I'm hoping April brings more than flowers, as March ended pretty poorly on my end. What's to come...

Terrible CTR Saturday especially from the UK, they seem to have forgotten what their clicking finger is for recently!

So far, off to a slow start today. Hope it picks up!

Friday was good, then Saturday tanked, and today looks no better.

Nice week-end so everyone is outside...
Also 1st of May is a non-working day in many countries and next Sunday (Monday is non-working) is the orthodox Easter => many are having a stretched week-end...

So the institutions that nearly crashed the world economy are now taking holidays?

Yes and No.

It was the US banks that started this recession, and they do not have bank holidays.

The UK have had bank holidays since 1871.

As I've said many times before, I ignore day to day variations. Overall so far 28 days of April just exceed 31 days of March.

Monthly CTR average is what I would actually expect. EPC is not up to my expectations, but given my theory high pages views yields premium EPC and low page views the opposite?

Which brings me back to my old "hobby horse", I have no problems with AdSense per se, just the damage wrought by Mr. Google's Panda Zoo over which neither I, nor anyone else have any control.

Realistically, you have to live with it.

Figures, no sooner than I post about having a good day then AdSense zeroes out the clicks. :-(

for the last two days i have had good things going before G decides to back the earnings off by 40% while keeping the clicks the same.i am still about double last april's earnings despite 30% fewer pageviews so who am i to complain about a little shoddy record keeping...

1:30am and so far earnings for yesterday somehow came back up to be the highest all month. The number was lower and the click count higher than I reported last afternoon, but at least it still beat the day before. Unfortunately, April has been a terrible AdSense month and won't be setting any records. I'm just glad that it looks like it'll beat March. Crazy.

For whatever reason yesterday was my highest Page RPM day for April. Maybe Mother's Day ads starting to kick in?

8:00am and again a bunch of clicks are zero. Guess this is the new system, show clicks but hold off until later to show amounts.

BTW @sajith90, your URL in your posts is prohibited.
It was reported hours ago, but the mods are extremely slow today.

Yesterday earnings just jumped up. Haven't seen that ever happen after this many hours before!

And back down it goes. WTF is going on?
11:48 pm on Apr 29, 2013 (gmt 0)



A green AdSense engineer has come up with a new detection method to scrub clicks from you Play_Bach. Turns out, lefties aren't good clicks. So those are deemed invalid. The engineer is due for promotion I'm sure!

Had a really bad past couple weeks and was despairing of AdSense then we realized yesterday that we had a technical error on one of the sites that was preventing the main ad block from showing. d'oh. can't put this one on Google.

Just lost a few more bucks to zeroed clicks. CPC today is 1/5th what it was yesterday. Sure AdSense, whatever you say. :-|

WebmasterWorld Senior Member play_bach is a WebmasterWorld Top Contributor of All Time 5+ Year Member



2:45am and yesterday never recovered. Oddly enough when I just logged in, today's earnings were already 3x all day yesterday. Of course, those clicks have now been zeroed. :-(
10:04 am on Apr 30, 2013 (gmt 0)



I'm glad I'm not seeing what you do Play_Bach, I'd just remove AdSense altogether, it would do my head in, or just not bother looking!

Unless I have my best day of the year today I won't match March's or February's earnings which is crazy knowing this is the wholesale trade's buying season for my widgets.

It's not pretty, that's for sure!

Hopefully somebody at the Plex knows what they're doing. So much weird reporting these days!

8:00am and already earnings are higher than all day yesterday. Hope it sticks.

Ending up just about the same as last month. My bout with invalid clicks seems to be over so maybe May will see improved earnings.

April's AdSense daily earnings varied overall more than usual but total revenue in the end was within normal range. That's good I guess.

@Netmeg
we had a technical error on one of the sites that was preventing the main ad block from showing. d'oh. can't put this one on Google.

Been there, done that a long time ago, before AdSense. Actually vanished from all Search Engines.

Talk about kicking yourself to death for being too smart by half with "fancy" Server Side Includes.

Self inflicted wound, recovered in three days though.
