What crazy things have they planned for us this month?

So far today, May is not looking any better!

It's starting a bit slow for me relative to recent months. But in 2012 May was a bit off as well, so it's likely seasonal. I guess it's too soon to tell either way!

I hate may day, internet is dead :(

Extremely low Page Views for me today and seemingly very little activity ... Is this simply May Day or has something new rolled out?

Some high value clicks just got zeroed. :-(

Last month was my worst AdSende ever. Let see if May is better, although today look like so far as a typical April day.

Some strange things going on today. Clicks and earnings show up for awhile then BOTH disappear. No trace of either. Anybody else?

I had that happen with one click, and yea it was weird. Usually they leave the clicks and remove or reduce the earnings, but this time both were gone.

Thanks netmeg. It's happened at least two times today, once this morning and then again about a half hour ago. Don't know if this is a glitch or some new reporting. Frankly, if I'm going to be losing clicks and earnings over the course of the day, I'd just as well not know about it. Just post the ones that are good, I don't need to stress about the ones that aren't. Geesh!

1st of May = non Working day in many countries = Labor day!

Yesterday never recovered. One of the other odd things (in addition to the vanishing clicks and earnings weirdness), was seeing a click temporarily go from a few cents to several dollars.

1st May was my best day since first week of March thanks to an excellent EPC average.

Yep, late click dump was a nice surprise.

Starting the second day of very low CTR.

01 may was not so bad, it was my old daily average (of what it used to be daily 5 months ago)

1st May was good, but today clicks are at least 50% down, impressions are way down, but CPC is very high. Consistency is out the window.

Nope, I haven't seen that today. My stats seem slow though.

Since last Saturday relevant targeting has all but vanished (and income with it). I'm now getting ads for seashells on Linux kernel pages.

Its hard to tell what advertising the visitor is seeing on your site. If they just searched how to unclog a toilet and then go to a perfume site they will see toilet cleaner advertising on the fragrance website. The whole thing stinks :)

So far, just another terrible AdSense day in the making.

But it worked so well before they "improved" it.

I actually had an okay May 1st (in line with the "new normal"), however today is looking really dire thanks to a 50% drop in CTR for one of my larger sites.

Yesterday click count down to 1/5th what it's been averaging. Not surprisingly, earnings were down too. How's everybody else doing?

Despite yesterday's weird reporting, it reverted to normal in the end. Today looks up-to-date and accurate.

I'm good. May is usually my first big month, and I'm way up over last year (though of course it's early yet)

> I'm good.

Always good to know somebody on this board is still doing well. Congrats netmeg! :-)
