Ugly day yesterday, very low
seems as April was not the official low, May would also be one
perhaps the beginning of a new low era for me

I'm really getting annoyed with the up and down Estimated Earnings. Are they trying to get us to stop watching our accounts by imposing an unprecedented amount of frustration in making sense out the reports? What's the point of showing us all the activity? Honestly, I don't get it anymore.

i had gotten used to having Google drop about 40% of my earnings every day last month, but when they did the same thing at the end of the month (My balance to be paid is about 63% of last months

Yesterday earnings and click count slashed to a fraction of what they've been averaging prior to the new May reporting. Hope this is not a permanent thing, if so, AdSense looks to have come to a screeching halt.

Friday one of my sites had 17 more visitors that on Thursday according to GA and made over $50.00 more. Maybe it was adjusted from the previous day.

Today is looking good already passed yesterday. Tomorrow who knows :)

RIP Adsense. A new low. Lowest day in 8 years.

Today wasn't too bad, but only due to the single most expensive click I have ever seen on Adsense. Without that click, today would have been abysmal.

Same here. One super click yesterday but overall the lowest "Ad requests" day since Aug 2011 when I took off AdSense to all but 1% of my pages. Something is messed up.

A new record for me Saturday ... 93.85% of earnings came from the USA, nothing from the UK or Canada and most European countries.

Anyone else stuck? Only have 2 clicks registered for the whole of today! Something's definitely up.

AdSense reporting changed big time starting this month. I'm seeing about 80% fewer clicks and (aside from yesterday's super click), a dramatic drop in earnings as well. Hoping things turn around. Won't be surprised if they don't.

I have seen some drops by CPC rose significantly enough that my account is balanced. 2 clicks though is impossible, so I'm guessing a click dump is forthcoming. Just wondered if anybody else was stuck.
Sorry to hear things aren't getting any better for you Play_Bach. Hope it's enough to make it still worth it, otherwise I think I would have given up myself.

This month (so far) is better than April, but it's nothing to get excited about, only enough to keep adsense on my sites.

Something very odd going on now. Clicks have barely budged and are showing as way, way below anything I have ever had in all my years with Adsense, but EPC is the highest I've ever had too. Are they not showing all my clicks, yet piling on the earnings onto those unseen clicks? Very confusing.

Who knows, but I've suspected for awhile now that the high value "super clicks" (as I like to call them) that I get are actually totals of more than one click. Seems more and more that reports are being spread out over several days and adjusted over time as well.

I normally get 'superclicks' first thing in the morning at the start of a new Adsense day, and always assumed it was for clicks not counted the previous day. One thing is for certain, Adsense seem to go out of their way to obscure the stats.
I have a meagre 8 clicks, and there's no issues with my website, so something is very, very wrong there, yet my earnings are not far off that of the norm, and the EPC is way higher than anything I've ever had.
Way to mess with my mind Google!

My click count hasn't budged for eight hours. At least the clicks already there haven't been zeroed out. Hopefully they'll survive the day.

Yesterday was another very low click count, very low CTR, very high CPC day. How's everybody else doing?

Not a nice Sunday with one of my lowest days of the year with click volume at 50% of average and CTR at 82%, fortunately EPC was 120% thus averting a totally new low.

Today, it started like if my sites were dead. Extremely low in every number. 5% in everything.

Doesnt look any good for me. i sent them 160k page views in april.

each page has 3 text widgets- one below post title and one on right sidebar

Estimated earnings were around $2000 and finalized earnings around $480.

I'm starting to believe adsense is more like GAN these days and not a CPC network. if there's a sale, you get paid the CPC rate, When there's no sale, the clicks are invalid.

If you got that big of a whomp in your earnings, you better take a good look at your traffic and your ad placement.

Everything's going good here, except for having acute bronchitis.

I think today I have a new superclick record at just over USD 9.00, can't remember what it was before however it's making things look a tad better.

I always put such clicks down to advertiser error since it just so happens to be 10X my average US click of USD 0.90+

According to Google PVs are extremely low today, is it a holiday elsewhere apart from the UK?

Hey Pup,

I have the same question about PV's.

EXTREMELY LOW today. Was wondering who turned the lights off.
