I think it's pretty safe to say that reporting is likely to be delayed like most of us have been seeing for the better part of the last month. I know it takes incredible will power not to be checking earnings frequently throughout the day, however at this point I think it's more of a waste of time than anything.
Yes, that too. Clicks reduced by half is common. Engine, over in the Adwords forum, has said that *he* sees lots of refunds from invalid clicks... which makes me wonder what it is that Google is seeing. I am not seeing visitors who I suspect of clickfraud and I'm watching users with Piwik as well as G. Analytics.
Count me in as well. I've been having these days, like today, where between Noon and 5 p.m. practically all earnings stop. It just goes up by pennies over the course of 5 or 6 hours. There is plenty of traffic but nothing happens. Then around 5, I start getting regular earnings increases again...
Just got a huge click dump early today - has to be "yesterday's" clicks that are being counted as clicks on 1/14. These delayed click dumps actually raises a good question about accounting practices; publishers and Google's.
