Most hits ever today... still an awful CTR... unreal.

I honestly think Google does everything possible NOT to get people to click on their ads.

Past few days have been average or slightly above average. Impressions have dropped by quite a bit, traffic remains the same, and EPC are high or higher than they've ever been.

Is it me....

But, I'm looking at building some niche sites in the UK, after reading the success that Spencer Haws (Niche Pursuits) has with them.

The thing is, I looked at doing this about two years ago and the first page results presented loads of sites that had adsense ads on them. They were also usually .co.uk extensions.

Now, when I check out potential keywords (in google UK) I'm struggling to find any sites with adsense on them apart from the super authority ones like wikihow, squidoo, webmd, hubpages etc.

Has google stopped these 20 page very targeted sort of sites from ranking and therefore displaying ads? I'm not talking about spammy one or two page MFA sites - but real ones with good information that really answer the query?

Or have they got something against these kind of sites and just want adword ads to appear in the search results?

The results in my opinion are now very degraded, at least in the UK - but these are just my observations and I wondered if anyone else especially from the UK were also seeing these trends?

Sorry if this happened months ago, but I'm only just looking at this method in the past week or so.

Yesterday was very good, I think it may have been possibly my second best I've ever had. That once again, my 336 ad unit at the bottom of all my content earned the most money, with a 160 skyscraper coming close behind. I cannot believe the difference since making these small changes to my absence units, it's absolutely unbelievable.

Yesterday was the best day since February with an increase in earnings of over 150% compared to 2 days earlier.

Yesterday ad requests back up to average from the freakishly low day before. Unfortunately, earnings only marginally improved. Here's to hoping today is better!

Yesterday was simply DISMAL. If this is this month's trend, it's time to reassess.

So far today CTR is setting new low record. Must be delayed stats, I hope. Ads seem targeted so not sure what's up. Will see how the day goes.

@Ironside..."Yesterday was very good, I think it may have been possibly my second best I've ever had. That once again, my 336 ad unit at the bottom of all my content earned the most money, with a 160 skyscraper coming close behind."

I'm going to have to change my ad sizes. I just have the big 780 sized banner ads, but half the traffic is mobile and iPhones. Maybe they're just not seeing them right or something, too big for their screens.

It's been slow, the same.
Yesterday was the exception, it was almost the old average, not low not high of pre - May 2013.

Today: slow and low.

The wackiness in stats continues. Ad requests today have nearly caught up with all day yesterday and there's still six hours to go. Earnings are lagging way behind and CPC since June 7 is about half of what it was at the beginning of the month. What a mess.

When you are cornered by 3 guys that start hitting you constantly with bats; you are then grateful when they just switch to hit you with their fists.

Today's earnings situation is like that. Therefore, I'm grateful.

Sometimes it feels like a miracle just to get one, single click.

Yesterday was a really good day, everything in tune decent ctr and cpc matching what I would expect with the amount of traffic. Not getting too excited about it today could be a disaster with the same traffic.

Yesterday had the highest click count and CTR all month, but the lowest CPC (down 50% from June 1 - 7 levels). Poop.

Yesterday 12 was slow but got better right before midnight.
Today looks slow, slower.

The only clicks we notice are the ones in the Adsense report, no metrics on lost/invalid clicks or whatever, but there is a growing ad blindness. I'm running an experiment and it's confirming this, so let's play with ad positions and variations.

Anyway ADSENSE is way slow. Been running speed tests and using G Insight and guess what, the part it tells me to be the slower one is G Adsense scripts. Really slow.

I've had the bottom fall out in June, it's almost the middle of the month and I'm 1/2 where I should be. Yesterday must have been the worst day in 3 or 4 years. Must be the latest penguin update.
