Yes, absolutely. media.net gives me almost half what adsense gives me. Importantly the media.net ads were placed below the fold and adsense was above the fold. Ill be exchanging their positions or remove adsense completely soon.

kumar89, I have some media.net on my site. It's in a poor location, but it's doing better than AdSense! I will soon make the total transition from the evil one!

Wednesday was my third best day of May at just over double any day in the previous eight days with click volume, CTR and EPC all up resulting in a 50%+ increase of eCPM/RPM.

Page Views were at May average!

2:00am - yesterday earnings peaked around 9:00pm, making it the third best day all month. So far May is on track to be 20% better than April. Now if I could only get my 2009 levels of traffic and click count back...

So, Penguin 2.0 is live
[mattcutts.com...]

For the moment nu change for me.
Historically, big announced changes did not create big problems for me.
The problem is Unannounced algo changes, like the the 1st of April and 1St of May...

Those changes eat about 30% of my traffic like Black Magic!

Good eCPM on Adsense in the last 3 days, but with low traffic -> not fun!

No traffic changes here, this is typically the start of peak traffic for me, and it's coming in. Yesterday was something of a disaster, but already made it up today and then some and it's barely 10AM, so I'm thinking there's some delayed reporting going on, at least for my account.

Good day here so far looks like my sites escaped the "Wrath of the Penguin" at least until the next update.

Affiliate sales slow, Adsense good, guess I can't have my cake and eat it too :)

Way above average the last 2 days. I only work 4 days a week now because of great earnings. Thanks, Goog!

Surprise, surprise, all the song and dance about the new Penguin and I end up with an average day all round ... I reckon my retail widget industry is not finding AdSense/Internet a reliable sales outlet.

It doesn't surprise me really owing to the weight of the product, unless a retailer has multiple outlets the extra labour and delivery transport costs incurred wipe-out any initial price advantage.

That's my theory anyway!

Yesterday earnings were about average for this month too, which is to say, lousy. Here's to hoping today is better!

Not so bad, earnings went up a little bit.
I'm not on the daily average I was a year ago,
but at least it was higher than the ugly may 2013 numbers I was seeing

Yesterday was my best day since May 7 and the 3rd best day so far in May.

That said, it would have been my 5th lowest day in March.

Odd. By 8am yesterday I had earned more than half of what my entire day ended up being. And I thought I was off to a great day, too! Maybe everyone was getting off work early for the long weekend.

Adsense also sent me the dreaded "You have 3 days to make changes" warning, too...

They only give you 3 days? I've had a couple of people write me lately requesting I remove their links from an article directory site I run and I was wondering why they were acting like the house was on fire.
