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

Terrible end of June and terrible start of July. Text ad CTR is suddenly bottom like a russian submarine. Started June 29. Hoping better tomorrow.

June ended 166% of June 2012. Hope July does also. Looking good so far.

June 30th was my best day of all time, and beat out the previous Sunday by a bit (Sunday is always my best day).
However, this Monday is falling well short of *last* Monday. 50% off. Disappointing.

A new dive; everything is going rock bottom. I am starting to realize why some people jumped on the 1930s....

Really low, one of the lowest days in years.

Yesterday was two times higher than the last three days average of June, so I'll take that as step in the right direction for July so far. Here's to hoping today is as good or better!

June was the same as May almost to the dollar, which is to say not great, but could be worse. So far July is off to a good start, and today is looking exceptionally good.

July has been a little slow for me in the past week, but I'd expect things to pick up next week when advertisers and users have finished celebrating July 4 and Canada Day.

Yesterday was the best day of the month so far :)

Pretty awful here - 20% drop overall in Adsense on July 1 compared to June 30 and the preceding week. Even worse was a 25% drop in AdExchange. Could this be because it's the start of a new quarter? My CTRs were actually up considerably—enough to make my Adsense rep contact me.

I have had a huge drop in my other networks too. I have made some adjustments to DFP so hopefully that will sort things out.

The 1st was dismal and today is just messed up. I got a huge click dump, all went way up. Navigated away to check the ad review center, came back and all was gone. Every new click and earning, washed away.

The morning started slow but steady. Then 2 hours ago, it halted. Earnings are 1/3 the usual new low standard.
I just realized I've been an Adsense member for almost 10 years. It has gone sour as a "marriage".

July 2nd is a rough day... they're not clicking. Traffic is fine. :-(

I'm having such a good day today! Like the old days. Definitely no something that I'm used to seeing. A year ago I would have shrugged my shoulders. Today I'm in a state of shock. I want more shocks to my system!

> I'm having such a good day today! Like the old days.
So that's where the clicks went! (just kidding, glad to hear you're doing well.)

Yeah - glad someone is doing well! 30% drop in revenue is not good - I just increased my staff and output! This couldn't have come at a worse time.

Wow, best day of the month yesterday:-)
Joking aside Tuesday was my best day since 26th May with both traffic and click volume up plus Google's metrics were actually in-line with my own logs etc.
It's too soon to hope that they've sorted out all their problems.
I've just noticed I've done 6,000 posts, WooHoo.

Big improvements over last year.

CPC prices have been much lower the last few days.

High traffic, few clicks. Bad day. This hurts.

Yesterday was interesting, not as low as the usual low

Going to be a tough week. We depend on TV traffic, and when certain cable stations don't air the stuff our content is focused on, we lose traffic. Wow. Next two weeks look promising, though, lots more air time for our stuff.
This is one of the worst weeks I've ever seen. It's like this one cable station in particular decided NOT to air its most popular show all week.

One site is doing well today on traffic ... but the CTR... is there a value that goes into the negative range?
5:06 am on Jul 4, 2013 (gmt 0)
Two hours left and I'm at about 30% of what I made yesterday. This is the madness that I've become numb to. I'm not expecting this to bump in the last 2 hours. It's such a different beast it's not even funny. For me at least.

What is it with Adsense? Overall, I'm not complaining. Last year was my best ever year, and this year so far is up by about 18% on last year for the same period. However, it's just a constant roller coaster.
June was good, but I have experienced the same downturn since 29th June as reported by others. Sometimes it flies along - good CTR and good EPC. At other times - like right now - clicks dry up and when they do occasionally come the earnings are very low.
To compound matters, whenever I seem to get going again Google comes along and takes away my clicks and earnings. This has been going on for some time, but it seems to be getting worse. They used to just remove the earnings. Now they remove the earnings and the clicks. Unless you log in frequently and see what is happening, you are not even aware that clicks arrive and then disappear. I wish they would be more transparent about this - maybe a figure for the number of disallowed clicks and a reason why.
Adsense for search used to be quite good, but that has turned really sour. Clicks for search are down and earnings are way down. Some clicks register 0.00 earnings.

july started good then they removed ARROWS >>> from the ads today, my ctr dropped 200% and click value almost 300%
this is just stupid, google bring back my arrows
my previous ctr was just 0.60% so why they removed arrows i don't know, i heard they only remove them if you have really high ctr, but 0.60 is low even with arrows
