What will August bring? July was a bust for some and great for others. For me, a bust, so I keep my fingers crossed that things begin to look up.

July was good and August is starting out with a bang.

Now that we're unstuck, it's shaping up to be a decent day.

So far, just 30% if yesterday. Hope it picks up.

Not much of a change, but a continuous disaster starting 1st of Aug..

Yesterday earnings didn't move much more after the AdSense reports started updating around 5:00pm. Ended at 1/3 of where it was the day before. July 31 was the highest earnings day that month for no reason I could see. Further leads me to believe all those clicks and earnings were just an end of the month correction, completely out of sync with whatever was happening that day. Here's to hoping for more of that!

July ended with a declining trend for me and August 1st started out with worst day in several months. Hoping August gets better as back to school (and work) begins.

Same here, jpch. Site traffic and RPM have both dipped, so it's a double whammy for me. First half of the year was great, but August is off to a rough start.

Posted on the wrong thread.. asdlñfjkasdf.

July had several low lows that worry me but the overall result is higher than June. August is beginning a bit higher than J but still not the usual average.

So far *this week* been having fast starts, stuck at 10am and a bit of movement at 16:00. Strange.

I've been seeing faster starts for a few months now, which is a bit annoying to me because I used to be able to predict the day's earnings like clockwork. I had it figured out that whatever earnings were @ 12:45pm local time, I could multiply by four and get a very accurate prediction on the day. Now that earnings have become a bit front-loaded, my method doesn't work anymore. It looks like I'm off to a better start than I really am. =/

Reports are way out of sync today. I get very different totals for the Performance Reports tab and the Estimated earnings (Home tab). Anybody else?

Thanks netmeg. Strange pattern I'm seeing, bouncing around all over the place.

Yesterday never recovered and today's numbers are all low. If my server isn't down, then something else is a mess.

July was our best month ever but things took a nosedive around the 30th and the decline continues through today. Site is littered with irrelevant ads of no particular interest to anyone apparently and little or no relation to the content. Traffic is great but nothing on the click side to speak of. Nothing to do but try and remember to breathe occasionally. Tried banning a few dominant junkvertisers but still no movement. I wonder what role Enhanced Campaigns might be playing in all of this?

Scary down today. Hoping it's just because it's a Saturday and I've been unable to work for a week due to moving.... but yikes!

Yesterday ended as one of the worst Saturdays I've seen in a long time. I never have hope for Sundays, but stats have been so crazy, there may be hope yet...not.

traffic and CPC down.
August is pretty much a dead month in Europe.
Entire pants are in production stop...
My city is empty!

I think he means plants. August is vacation month in Europe, right?

Anyway, my metrics are WEIRD today. Very high CPC on my best performing site, but CTR is way down on that site, too. It makes no sense. CTR on that site is usually double what it is today.

Still on a roll. Seriously, I don't understand what is going on. Very grateful to Big G throwing all this $ my way, wish I understood why. Crazy!
