So far impression levels are the same. I know for some Panda 4.0 may be having an effect, either up or down so that may be confusing this weekends results. How are you doing so far?

Not breaking any records but can't complain either. Panda and numerous site changes over the last year make it difficult for me to compare this year with last but steady as she goes seems to be mantra at the moment. Weekends in general aren't my best days and holidays are always a roll of the dice. Yesterday was exactly an average Friday. Today seems to be an average Saturday so far. We'll see.

LOL. I did the same thing. ;) For me, it's about being ready for summer so there's never a better time than the present.

Blessed be Google and Panda, for that which they hath taken away, they hath returned... with interest ;)

It has been a great weekend so far. Smashing both traffic and earnings records. This is traditionally my biggest weekend of the year anyway, but this one is a doozy.

Yep, record breaking Memorial Day weekend for me, and it's not even Memorial Day yet. No complaints here.

Lousy--but then, AdSense has been a bust for us lately, even after a big Panda 4.0 boost. Affiliate earnings, on the other hand, are growing like wildfire.

The weekend was an average weekend. So far the holiday is turning out to be an average holiday (which means it's slow for a Monday).

Three times last year, heading for four. And traffic to match. It's all good.

Released a site redesign the thursday before. Changed everything. Poor CTR over the weekend and had no way to measure :P

Found out after 4 days it's probably ad placement, color, etc. Tweaking now.

Still maintaining a significant improvement over last year. Launched two more sites, but they won't "bake" until next year or the year after.
