The roller coaster certainly continues. Saturday was a bust but today I'm with Play_Bach, wow! No difference in traffic numbers to speak of between the two days. The only difference I could see was a reduction in junk ads. 5 times as many clicks on Sunday as Saturday. Go figure.
Stop pissing me off! All day no click move than finally one click for nothing. When others shine, it's broken here. Now I'll go cry on my pillow and pray I don't piss off my wife with my baby like sobbing. I need a stiff drink...oh, have one here! Gulp.
Today is spooky-dead. And the ads I'm seeing are some of the most relevant I've seen in awhile. Traffic is above normal but I'm beginning to wonder if it's possible to have a negative CTR. I suppose anything is possible if you use Google Math.
Must say today is as slow as yesterday which ended as a 5/10. Earning in July at pretty much an all time low. Sadly, as my earning go, so does my motivation for webmastering.
I should mention that 10/10 days are happening about once a week it seems if I'm lucky. If 10/10 becomes so rare, I'll list a "*" beside my new 10/10 rating. To be clear, todays 10/10 for me would be about a 6/10 to 7/10 if you go back about a year or so. If I need to drop my expectations of what is a 10/10 day, it will always be listed with a 10/10*.
My lack of action regarding mobile devices may be playing a big role in this downward spiral so I'm not pinning this entirely on the adsense program at this point.
1st of August was great, and one other good day, otherwise a really lacklustre month. I have some long term plans, but in the mean time I'm turning to alternative means to supplement my income, as Adsense only brings in 1/3 of what I need to live on these days.
I'm seeing what appears to be regular click-dumps today. Morning was dead and just when I was about to go looking for offensive ads and the like, wham a stream of clicks over the next half hour. Now it's happening again after several hours of nothing. I'm also noticing that my Google Analytics reports (related to Adsense revenue and clicks) are almost always ahead of my Adsense Reports by as much as a half an hour. Not always, but most of the time. Occasionally, it's the other way around.
Since August second every day has been utterly perplexing. CTR is at an all time low, as well as CPC and eCPM. It just doesn't make any sense. I was getting used to the up and down saw blade, but August has flat lined. Depressing.
