Here we are, July 1st and I'm trying to be optimistic. I hope this month brings a much needed upswing!

My impressions were fine. CPC okayish, but CTR bottomed out completely. Hours with no clicks at all, and this morning is starting the same. Hopefully it is just validating, because I've just had my worst day in years.

Without wishing to curse myself, a slow recovery has started.

CTR and CPC crashed altogether... low conversion and low earning.. is this going to dive into the bottom?

At this point I strongly suspect something is broken at Google. Hoping to find it fixed someday but...

Been a strong week -- stable RPM, CPC, CTR -- traffic holding steady.

Glad to know it's affecting quite a few people and not just myself. Everything's crashed these past two days - it's really odd. This morning I thought there was a recovery in hand, but things just froze again in the afternoon, and virtually no movement this evening. What a mess.

My CTR was terrible yesterday in the morning and only improved a little later on. Today has been better, but it's still not great. Just some points on what I'm seeing...

- On image ads, there is usually a delay and this can often stick and create a blank ad and you just see the Google play?! badge. This is a big issue imo.

- Those favicons can be an eyesore and they sometimes cause the text to cutout. I'm going to change the fonts/size etc to see if I can get around this.

- They tend to throw up bizarre ads that aren't relevant and these never perform well. I know they run interest based ads, but my cache/cookies etc are always clear.

I'm sure there are other issues as well. It is definitely Google that are causing these CTR drops. CPC is fine and on my end traffic levels are on the rise.

Having some really good days with both Adsense and affiliate sales. Both are way up. This is already best month of the year with a few more days to go.

Enhanced text ads off, no arrows, no favicons.

Just a quick check in. This past week, I'm typically getting 4/10 to 6/10 days. I had one 10/10 day but that seems like well over a week ago. For me, this is par for the course these days. I'm holding out hope for corrections. If not this month, then hopefully next. It's not a glitch at this point because 5/10 seems the norm now for me. The good thing is there really isn't anything for me to diagnose and spend time on fixing. Different ad colors perhaps? Going this way does make those 10/10 days so very very nice and appreciated.

Yesterday was another terrible AdSense day here too. So far, July earnings are down 50% from June. Not good. :-(

They say bad things come in threes. Today is my third terrible day in a row.

Just looking at my running monthly total and I'm headed for the worst month since I was a newbie at this. Now I'm back to newbie stage I suppose. I guess it could turn around somewhat by the end of the month, but if it did, then it would too clearly be a glitch. Therefore, I'm expecting to close out the month at the lowest point in years.

Yesterday was around the 3/10 to 4/10 range. I'm tempted to make this new low, my new 10/10 then I would be reporting splendid results. Not complaining, just reporting my flux lately. Today is slow enough to indicate another 4/10 type of day.

Did someone mention changes on the Adwords side that might be affecting a number of us? Perhaps I start a different thread, I dunno.

Everything is fine. Friday afternoon is the slowest part of the week for me and I'm on par.

I love the favicons on the text ads-- very smart by Google, makes the ad look professional.

I have a 6/10 day going right now with a couple hours to close. Never thought I'd say it, but I'm juiced with a 6/10 right now! I just need this to hold steady for a couple more hours!

Don't know if it's coincidence but I blocked a couple of sites (I normally let Adsense have free rein over everything), and things appear to be returning to normal today.

Yesterday never recovered, making it one of the lowest earnings days in months. Today is already 5x ahead and it's only 9am.
