Hi all,

I've noticed recently, since I've been tracking my CTR & CPC, that mondays are awful for both CTR & CPC. Is it something that is common amongst all Adsense accounts, or just in the subject area of my site?

I assume that advertisers are timing their ads and avoiding Mondays in particular (I remember timed ads were an option when I used to use Adwords). Therefore less ads available in the pot?

Anyone else see the same stats?

For me, Saturdays and Sundays are always competing for worst day of the week, followed by Fridays.

M, Tu, W and Th are my best days.

Except this Monday. Terrible at noon, Pacific time.

I call this one sub-standard but can point to two factors other than Monday.

1. End of the month
2. New text ad formats (courtesy of Google)

Monday is usually my first or second best day of the week.
