Coverage down to 85% - how's yours?

So coverage for my site has gone down to 85% yesterday, and it's not looking any better for today as it is already at 90% and usually goes down a bit throughout the day.

I'm not blocking anything (no ads / networks / categories), and nothing has changed on my site.

Is anyone else experiencing low coverage?

Mine is at 92%, which is healthier than usual. I have gambling and sexual content ads blocked and I've played the usual whack-a-mole with download buttons, so 92% isn't bad in that respect. Don't ask me about CPC or RPM though.

Where do you check coverage at? I only saw it in the Revenue Profile but that lumps multiple days together.

@commandDork go to Performance Report, select your time period. Then select the custom tab, and select the "coverage" check box. I would recommend selecting other items as well that will help interpret the results such as impression, and page views. Click OK and presto!

Ah got it! Had to delete the old custom tab to get the new one going with the new selection(s). Thanks NickMNS!

Coverage is normal for me, in the low/mid/upper 90s for all sites the last 2.5 mos. I just switched some of the sites to Cloudflare too and that has not affected coverage (that was a concern in another recent thread).

Thanks, NickMNS!

NO KIDDING! I had no idea how to work the Custom Button.
Start with Delete Custom Tab.
Then click on the Automatic New Tab with the + sign on it.

19 parameters selectable -
Page Reviews, Ad Requests, Impressions, Ad Impressions,
Coverage, Clicks, Page CTR, Ad Request CTR,
CTR, Ad CTR, CPC, Page RPM,
Ad Request RPM, Impression RPM, Ad RPM, Active View Measurable,
Active View Viewable, Average Viewable Time, Estimated Earnings

WOW! Where have I been?
Thanks, Nick.

My coverage is 95.7%.

Me, too - where have I been and coverage is down - starting Sunday. From a normal 80% (I block a lot) to 55%, now 43% today. My passback ads are picking up some.

Now, when I run the coverage report for all of this year (Jan 1st to today), there are pockets of days throughout the year where coverage does dip quite a bit, but then it quickly picks up a few days later to the 90% range. So this could just be another one of those fluctuations.

Feb 20th dropped into the 50% range then it took two days to climb up to the 90% range.

Then on Mar 17th down into the low 80% range. From May 11th to May 15th, down into the 70% range.

So there's that. I dunno.

I see that for me, too. March 2016, end of February 2017, and April 2017.

Well it's interesting to see that other people are indeed seeing a drop in coverage, but it's certainly not reassuring.

The reason why I'm concerned about the 85% is because I see a 95% coverage average since Jan 1st 2017, and although I do see a few dips here and there, it rarely went below 90%, especially not this long.

Coverage has started going down since August 1st and has been below 90% since August 4th, averaging 85% since yesterday.

I don't know if this is related, but since Firefox took an automatic update today, my adsense is now showing the alternative adverts instead. I've been to other sites, and they show no adverts at all. It may explain why I haven't earned a penny today.

So far today (I know it's early, but mine doesn't usually drop during the day) my coverage is double what it was yesterday, so maybe the worst is over. For now.
