What crazy things have they planned for us this month?

My Tuesday would have been awful without tablets/mobiles, they produced 31.4% of overall earnings.
Once again supposed US Page Views were way down, something's going on with those P twins and it ain't doing me any good whatsoever.

Yesterday was not so low, but still not the daily average before April/May
7:57 pm on May 15, 2013 (gmt 0)
Very low CTR and, once again, thank heavens for tablets/mobiles, so far they have contributed 44.7% of earnings today.
The ongoing recessions in many EU countries must be having a depressing effect.

D E A D today.

Had a few clicks this morning, been dead ever since.

Page Views going up, everything else the opposite way ... Come on hamsters, have a dump!

Obviously the Hamsters have been cremated!

Day just finished, Page views = GOOD [by current standards], CTR = GOOD, EPC = VERY GOOD.
Whinge and win. An OZ expression.
Tomorrow? Probably in the toilet. Consistency is no longer a hallmark. Violent gyrations are almost de rigueur for Google.

What an awful day ... Desktop CTR one of the worst of the year so far resulting in Desktop earnings being the 5th lowest of 2013. FFS what are they doing?
10:15 am on May 16, 2013 (gmt 0)
My CTR has stabilised since last week however my CPC has went up by a fair amount, traffic is lower and earnings have stayed the same.

4:00am and no adjustments to yesterday's click count or earnings. It'll be interesting to see how today plays out. Will we all get a nice spike or will it be more of the same? It's so exciting, I can't wait! (not...)

Play_Bach, Where are your sites based? Have you added in any new websites to your account / new channels or ad blocks in the last month or so?
I do know by removing poor blocks or poor performing websites from your account can increase your earnings. It must be a form of quality control I guess.

Daily earnings are slowly getting stable low but not so low as before but no, not near the usual daily earnings before April-May
And now... as if it couldn't get any worse, my hosting provider is giving me a headache.

The deadness continues.

I may as well remove AdSense completely, this is not even beer money any more let alone an expensive coffee bar!
Is netmeg the only one seeing an increase or are many of you sat there with fingers crossed hoping you're not the next to be screwed?
In the next few days I'm off to a huge widget trade exhibition in Germany, probably the 3rd largest in the world, it will be interesting to meet and talk with many friends from my industry to ascertain their thoughts and views as to what they feel is happening ... We'll also be discussing traffic levels which should be interesting!

> Is netmeg the only one seeing an increase
I fear she may very well be (at least on this board).
8:19 pm on May 16, 2013 (gmt 0)
I'm at 161% of last May so far.

After doing a report of bi-weekly results for 1/1 through 5/15, it appears that the only thing that has really changed for me is CTR, which began in mid-April and continues to this day.
Over the past month my CTR is about 25% to 35% lower than it was from 1/1 through 4/15.
My 2 cents if that's useful to anyone.

Hey netmeg, can you toss my a couple of bucks? I need a sandwich. I'm tired of canned beans and tuna fish.

I got bills, son.

I've earned 300% more this morning from one UK click than the whole of Thursday ... No, this is not delayed reporting.
11:45 am on May 17, 2013 (gmt 0)
Totally useless here this morning. Clicks being counted by CPC dreadful.

I'm beginning to wonder if they're experimenting with CPA ads again.

Wow. Yesterday was my lowest ever earnings day. Today has already doubled it!
Adsense has been a very nice side earner for me over the years, but I'm very much now concentating on new projects with different revenue streams.

>I may as well remove AdSense completely
I'm at that point too. Has there been another algorithm change the last few days or is something else going on?
I haven't been able to follow this stuff lately due to a death in the family, but I did check my May stats this morning. The last few days income and pageviews have dropped below painful.
Thank you for any insights you can provide.

yesterday was pitiful and today could be a new all time low! CPC and CTR both trending down.
1:27 pm on May 17, 2013 (gmt 0)
Oh, since my last post only Page Views have increased, everything else heading downwards rapidly.

Yesterday 16 was low but not so low. I'm making "V" with my network of sites when I used to make V * 3. So you could say I'm making 1/3 but no. Bigger traffic now so no clue on what's happening, It's more than triple, doesn't make any sense.

Yesterday never recovered. That's two days in a row of stats way out of whack.

Traffic OK, CPC OK, CTR in the dumps. Low click through means ads not related to content. Adsense used to excell in matching advertising to page content, that is what made them number one. Until they fix this issue CTR will be lower for just about everyone.

Looks like they are clipping away at revenue. Just looked at my stats, then logged out. I was going to block a advertiser url but forgot so logged back in a couple mins later and a 15% clip of the days earnings was taken.
So along with ads that don't match their algorithm is clipping away. No wonder revenue is down.
With my traffic today I should be double what G is showing.
