I'm only kicking this off because I can't recall anyone commenting this way before.

My finalised earnings were adjusted 1.324%?

Excepting - it was INCREASED that much, not down.

Wonders will never cease.

I had to register to this forum so I can vent my experience for August..

First off, was my best month this year (ever) at estimated earnings of $52XX.XX

After being happy as hell for 24 hours, I just found out that Finalized earnings came out to $42XX.XX. This is the largest decrease I have ever seen, dollar or percentage wise!

Anyone else have a bad decrease like this? I dont see any issues for invalid clicks or anything (yet) in my payments page..

Typically I have 1% shaved from my finalized earnings which is no big deal. My August earnings were shaved 10%. Basically my car payment!

About 1% for August. It has been FAR less than 1%, for Jan. thru July 2013.
They whacked me good, this time. But hey, it's all relative, right.
1% ain't too bad. I like it.

0.6% taken off for me in August. Anything below 1% is normal for me.

It's very odd to me that historically I'll have around 1% shaven every month and for August it shoots up to 10%. My traffic and traffic sources have been very steady for awhile now. I wish Google was more transparent in how they determine finalized earnings.

Don't mean to gloat and (knock on wood), our average end-of month deduction for the last three months has been one cent per month. The month prior it was in the range of 2% of estimated earnings which was a shocker. G seems to hit us with a minor negative adjustment about every three or four months. Five months ago though, they credited us a penny. Wow, the wonders of rounding. I am noticing more real-time adjustments though and because I don't sit and watch my account, who knows what the monthly tally is for that activity because, unless you catch it in real time, it's like it never happened. In some ways I suppose, it can be less disappointing though than to have big chunks taken away in one fell swoop.

I hate you all... lol

I don't want to calculate it, but you can from my last post. Roughly 18-19%?

I pray this is not a regular thing.. last month I was cut maybe 3%, before that was minimal.
