Just got an email from Adsense (in the dashboard, so it's really them), congratulating me for having improved my adsense earning by 500% between June and July and to keep up the great work !
...
...
...
But in July (so far) I have 25% less than the finalized earning of June... and I am at half of what I earned in July 2017...

I had a similar message in June for May, my revenue was up by about 3X from the actual. Unfortunately they didn't make the same mistake with my payment. Lol...

Usually caused by looking through the wrong end of the eyeglass.

Left hand again not communicating with right hand ... in this case managers and bean counters.

I wonder if, Adsense is running a double billing system, what we are really earning, and what they claimed we earned. (joking, but...)

It is not a joke @Dimitri! After all, there are reports by G and for Publishers and ... that other report to Advertisers! (Wanna bet that none of them match?)

Ads have changed, many of the big players mid-decade have backed off due to reporting v their roi and g has brought out view, clawback, and hardened click reporting and all that happy stuff. And ...

Wait for it...

Apparently did not send a memo to the Ad Manager/Advisors who are cloned to SELL SELL SELL.

Whew!

Mine is even better, they claim both my June impressions and revenue were 1000% up from last month and that I'm on a roll!.....
They are wrong, unfortunately; June revenue and impressions were substantially lower than May's, actually.. :(

I got my June email. Now I know I'm not allowed to show my results, but given that they are laughably wrong:

Made a mistake, my email was also about June vs May. If someone can edit this topic's title, for not "misleading" future readers...

My question is, how can they make such BIG mistake, I mean, that is really something very-very wrong. And my second question is, is anyone received an "accurate" email ? Something which is really matching their performance between May and June ?

I was scared with a report I earned 97% LESS but actually it was about 10% more.

I'm also advertising with Adwords and as publisher there's a daily and monthly clawback but as advertiser I never got some money back what they took away from the publisher side.

Obviously a topic for the Google Ads [webmasterworld.com] forum but that is an interesting statement.

I also received one of those congratulating email, which is great timing considering I've had a devastating year.

I didn't get the memo (sigh). Apparently my ego is not considered worthy of stroking with a .... can we say it? ... fake email? :)

You need to be an Adsense publisher. This is the Google Adsense forum.

So it looks like that there is a still a calculation made somewhere, since some are reporting 1000% increase, while I get "only" 500%

May be it's how much Adsense earned thanks to us, and not what we earned.

There is no logic to these emails. I received one congratulating me on having made $10 or +>1,000% in June with a CTR of 0.26%. Bizarre.

i completely removed adsense from my site last month so i don't even show them anymore, and i got an email saying my earnings are up 1000%!
so if you want to boost your earnings i recommend removing all the ads

@tangor and @londrum
Thank you.
I prefer humor above ALL ELSE.
You guys came through.
I'm still giggling.
