Not sure if earnings are slow for everyone today, but mine have hardly got off the mark. It's only early afternoon in the US where the majority of my traffic comes from so hopefully things will look a bit more favourable tomorrow morning when I checked.
Today so far, things are very odd. In spite of the fact my adsense earnings are in line with the normal, there is not a single cents from US visitors, while they represent 2/3 of my visitors (and stats are showing ads are served to US visitors). Instead I have "anomaly" high stats for Europe and Australia... odd.
@Squarix9 earnings really, traffic is pretty good, think I had around 3200 hits according to Google analytics. 56 clicks were 21 of them coming from the USA 14 from the UK. USA earnings were more than double the UK earnings. However, yesterday was slightly better than the day before. It seems to go like this, I have one really bad day, the next day slightly better. However, bear in mind that my earnings are probably nowhere near as much as a lot of you guys. £15 a day would be a really good day nowadays. £10 a day is where I would like to be, below £10 and it's a little disappointing. Go back two or three years and it was double this every day. However, you can't complain when it's basically free money coming in. The money I get more than covers the cost to run the website and basically keeps my car filled up of fuel each month with money left over to buy all the fishing bait and tackle I need.
I hate it when I see Google ads in the place of media.net. Most of the time they are completely irrelevant and have absolutely no connection to my niche. However, when the media.net ads are showing they are extremely relevant. What I really like about media.net is that every person is given a one-to-one support person from their website who will work with you in order to make sure the ads are displaying as best they can. They have done an absolutely brilliant job on all the websites that I have media.net displaying on. They've really gone out to make sure that the ads fit in and out make the flight look a mess. The best earning ad unit for me is a 600 x 250 ad unit which I have placed at the bottom of all my articles. I also find the 480 x 80 unit works well if you place these between articles. I've placed some after the first paragraph in my articles and they do quite well.
