Today is my newest low in 9 1/2 years. And Google keeps breaking its record!

Very positive start to September. I'm a natural pessimist, so don't expect it to continue.

My CPC and CTR was pretty poor compared to a usual Monday. Oh well, better look tomorrow.

Not good so far, and to make things worse, my stats are messed up because I now have over 8000 ad impressions from one page, all traffic from the Philippines. What are they doing!?!

First two days were up from August's numbers, but today seems slow. Fingers crossed.

Just beat all day yesterday and it's only 9:00am! Hopefully there's lots more on the way because so far, Sept. has been pretty lackluster.

I am starting to hate Adsense. Everything is screwed up.

A trash earnings day from morning. When it starts so odd and shows no life? I call this a "write off" day. Makes no sense.

And today is the new lowest day in 9 1/2 years. Every new day, there is the possibility to go lower, and lower, and lower... and my # of visits are stable now.

Best earnings ever. Tons of tedious split tests did the job.

Same pattern: one day of good revenue, followed by an entire week of lower and lower CPM...

Slow death pattern.

Looks like G is putting out new text ad features (or at least experimenting with them). I have a 160x600 on my site that looks like a combination of a text ad and a panel control but it's a text ad. Anyone else seen this?

My 160x600 is my single best ad unit from my entire portfolio.. seems to be normal, all text ads in there. But I rarely go on my websites lol..

September has been total crap for me! I added two new sites to my portfolio, hope to compensate, as I have goals I want to meet and exceed.

Down from $240/day for 3 days to $70/day past 3 days.

If you're using enhanced text ads, you might want to take a look a your sites to see if these changes are in effect anywhere. They could be related to the decrease. They just appeared on my site today and seemed to have an almost immediate dampening effect on CTR. I'm not saying the changes are bad, only that they ad a certain graphical flare to the page that may or may not be desirable, depending on your layout. The new formats also move the ad's hot spot in certain circumstances.

Today is pennies it seems. It's that trend which says today is going to be a total bust. Seen this too many times lately. You just get a feel for your earning and the movement during the day. Like a doctor diagnosing an illness. I know my account and today appears like yesterday did. Not checking for the remainder of the day.

Adsense has been doing experiments and adjustments the whole year. It isnt my traffic that bothers me, it is the amount of money I'm generating. Practically, my earnings are half from what it used to be since December 2012.

has anyone ever compared their earnings with a cpm company and adsense-or are you all just adsensers?

1 Sep Down with adsense, down with casale & vc
2 Sep Up with adsense and up with c & vc
3 Sep Tanked with both until 5 Sept
6 Sep adsense up cpm companies down.

Always interested in end of month though. NORMALLY my cpm go through the roof whereas adsense stays constant.

Low CTR today. Traffic good, CPC good. CTR is down about 40% from this months average. Hoping it will smooth out as the day moves along, expecting it won't :)

Earnings have been decent, but seriously the click/earnings stats have never been so delayed. I'd say now 75% of my clicks/earnings appear in the reporting between 8pm-midnight. That's never been the case before and I know my traffic hours haven't changed at all. It's not a big deal, but it's definitely changed.

> but seriously the click/earnings stats have never been so delayed.

In my account it's been like that for awhile (though I'm still so habituated to checking that I do it all day anyhow, dumb as that is). Judging from the seemingly random up and down stats, it's looking more and more like AdSense is spending several days to validate clicks. Long gone is there any semblance to real time anything.
