What crazy things have they planned for us this month?

I just saw this message today while checking my stats:

We're sorry, some data in this report is delayed, please try again later. There's no impact to ad serving or payments.

I knew there was a lag in the reporting system. Finally, Google acknowledges it!

I noticed the red banner about three hours ago, yet earnings were already double yesterday and the second highest all month. Weird. Here's to hoping there isn't some nasty surprise in store when stats start moving again!

Red banner is still there, but just had a small click count increase anyhow. Makes today's earnings so far the highest in nearly three months. Hope it sticks!

Hahaha ... Now they're really taking the PI$$, my lowest EVER click volume day by a considerable margin with CTR also at nearly the lowest for the year.

Clicks for Friday were 33% of January and February average!

The way this joke of a programme is going I'll be paying AdSense come July/August ... NOT!

Crazy numbers so far today. Its only 8:30 am here and already at 70% of what I made for the whole day yesterday. Must be hold over from previous day. Waiting for a big reverse click dump back to G :(

@breeks
I'm right there with you! 9:20am here and already at 50% of all day yesterday which was my best day in three months. Hope whatever is going on continues for awhile (like three more years straight!). Lots of AdSense ground to make up for.

Woo hoo! Just got another superclick pushing today's earnings to within just about all day yesterday - and it's only 10:15am. Crazy!

Heading for new AdSense super lows today ... Madsense has now broken through my low removal level.

I haven't the time to remove coding at the moment however if it continues then I shall do it publicly whilst at a huge widget trade fair in Germany in the next couple of weeks!

Just replaced my media.net box on my homepage with the adsense box that used to be there. After an hour, the ad still isn't showing. All my other adsense is running normally, including on that page. Any ideas?

Doing well here for over a year and counting. I no longer work many hours as I used to. Just 4 hours of work every day is enough to achieve my desired revenue. Thanks, Goog!

Sorry, JC. As you know, I've had plenty of crappy AdSense days/months so I'm pleasantly surprised (to say the least!) to see this upturn. Today continues to charge forward, already it's the highest earnings day since Sept 2012 - and it's only 5pm! Hope it lasts.
12:41 am on May 19, 2013 (gmt 0)



@jbayabas - Take it whilst you can since a 99.99% bet would suggest it sure as hell won't last!

I should know even though I've done nothing wrong, I've gone from USD 333.00 per day to USD 10-15 and going lower ... I am NOT joking!

I'm a brand, I have unique and quality content, I have totally EXCLUSIVE products that Google now assigns to scrapers even though my content has been on-line since the early 90s.

Never, ever trust Google for anything, it IS evil.

That's a serious drop, HuskyPup,
And its made worse because it seems that Google doesn't care about the quality of original material. A time based index is actually a very simple concept in search terms but Google does not seem to have any way of detecting authority. Its famed link based PR was gamed to hell and back but they haven't come up with anything that really takes its place. Everything that Google does now seems to be a bish-bosh effort to throw any crackpot idea at the problem and hope it solves it.

The continuous exhortations from Google to "create good content" are beginning to grate. Then there is the completely banjaxed idea of some hamster of limited intellect that "links" are the problem and therefore unnatural links should be removed. (Many of these "unnatural" links are from Dmoz clone directories and some rather clueless SEOs bother directory owners asking that these links be removed from their directories.) I don't think that Google is Evil as such. But I do think that much of their vaunted intelligence is the product of good PR. It is Microsoft all over again.

And the CTR/revenue is still in the toilet.

Well now it's nearly 10pm, and clicks and earnings haven't budged since. Glad to see some decent $ for a change, but what a weird day!

ctr is finally good today and it's almost double compared to may, but it's still 50% lower than last year's ctr, and 30% lower than in january

Yesterday was the worst day I've had for many a year.
10:56 am on May 19, 2013 (gmt 0)



Thanks to a late surge from the USA on my CMS gallery no new record lows were created, in fact it was my best day of the week however that's not saying much since the rest of the world clearly don't want to join in at the moment!

I simply cannot believe how far down earnings are for me in Europe, this is making 2008/9 look like boom years. Has Joe Public really stopped looking on The Net for my widgets?

But I do think that much of their vaunted intelligence is the product of good PR.


Absolutely, it's the old smash 'em over the head with supposed good news, give 'em a free quality product like Gmail and many will "feel" good towards the company.

A time based index is actually a very simple concept in search terms but Google does not seem to have any way of detecting authority.


I suspect that this has been chewed-up by a Panda or a Penguin because that's when my problems really started two years ago with Panda 2.01 and all kinds of sites started to rank with my coding and images and I was chucked out with the dirty washing, meanwhile Bing still ranks me as the whitest of white authority sites.

I know there's very little I can do with Google until someone recognises the fact that their results are not only garbage but also skewed towards the many sites they claim to be trying to eradicate.

My informational pages just seem to be far too much for Google to digest which is why, I suspect, that I am seeing so many pages with the bare minimum ranking so well and within weeks of being launched ... Just how can that be?
3:55 pm on May 19, 2013 (gmt 0)



i get 1/3 page-views compared to 30 days ago. SEO positions dropping like flies. still xxx EU, but i bet soon it will be xx EU once again.
CPC is nearly 2x compared to last month, that is a good thing to keep earning.
CTR just above 2.5% - seems to be stabilized for the last 30 days.
Looking forward to new Google penguin/panda updates (scheduled to launch soon), hope will push all the garbage sites (i see now for my keywords) back to the no-mans land.

If today continues in the same vane, it will be a new record low.

Me too zara, nothing's moving at all at AdSense for me, my logs are moving, theirs are jammed!

Noon here. Stuck all day too. Another day of nail biting AdSense excitement.
