Happy 2014! I hope January brings better results than the end of 2013 did.

My RPM has been averaged almost the same amount the entire day (within about 5 or 10 cents). Many times I have checked and it has been much higher, then I have checked 10 minutes later and it has been back to normal again. How can this be statistically even possible to believe? Especially considering the different sites, countries, time zones etc. I am also seeming likely to be about 35% down on Dec 2013.

Pretty bad month.. Worst day in a while two days ago, even wondered of it was worth working... Anyway this month is currently 58% below last but I'm thinking it will be 50% at the end.

So I login this morning hoping perhaps there was a click dump overnight, but even worse - kind of expected. I see the BIG Earnings Warning Indicator telling me my earnings yesterday were 86% below forecast and that I am encouraged to investigate further. "Yes please. May I speak with the head of AdSense so I can find out what the heck has changed/is wrong with YOUR system".

Oh and already today earnings are 4x all of yesterday. Sure Google it's MY site that has the problem. That's just classic salt in wounds to get that earnings warning message.

Horrible payment in the last 3 days, worst revenue in the last 12 months...
Normal Views/clicks...
Something is broken or the economy is going down!

Same here, Jan 2014 worst month ever, ever ever.

Two days ago had a very good day, the only one. Yesterday sucks. Today is moving so slow I don't see anything good coming up.

2013 was my worst-ever year, January 2014 so far is 42.67% of January 2013, it all went downhill after 28th January 2013 with Google's image theft and has simply continued to get worse and worse.

January 2013 is 72.38% of December 2013, whatever they've managed to do they've fubard it beyond all belief.

During January I have seen sites that used to get low, but steady, earnings, not get clicks for days and days on end, the worst was for two whole weeks. Those sites' traffic sources have not changed yet AdSense earnings have collapsed...I'll be deciding tomorrow which sites will have AdSense removed since I'm not leaving their ads on for pennies.

Last three days have not been so good but Jan 2014 overall has been a winner. No complaints here.

Next month may be a different story.

January's been a winner for me, too. The day isn't done and earnings are up about 37% YOY.

January was great for me also - after a year of continuous declines, it was a very welcome change!

Easily the worst month ever in the nearly ten years I've been with the program.

I suspect that once G does their clawback, I'll end up about the same as January 2013. Which is not exactly growth, but this is usually a slow month for me anyway.

January was a fairly decent month.

January was OK until I saw they shaved $530 off my payable earnings.
