There is some technical issue I believe because my earnings have only gone up a small % since 9/10pm last night and the traffic has been steady. Analytics also not updated since that time. It is such a massive drop I had to come on here to see if anyone else has experienced the same. Near the end of month I expect it to be high earnings as ad houses push their budgets but it is the weekend I guess. I believe it might be a technical glitch and hope adsense sorts it out soon.

Re: Link Units.

Hmm, I'm seeing ads for them still but earnings for the units have crashed today - like pennies for RPM when it's typically dollars.

Reporting shows that all was good/consistent with them until today.

AdSense been terrible for me for the past 10 days. September was looking good in the beginning, but it has turned out to be disaster with each passing day.

Hello, my earnings have crashed also for link units.
It's a dramatic low impressions (4 times lower), but with higher CPC (2 times higher).

Links units look fine on the pages, but when you click through the only results are from the domain. I checked and can still create a link unit. The code is the same, no changes.

For now, I replaced all link units with In-article ads until I see what develops.

Re: Link Units

Link unit RPM is down 75% for me. Clicks and impressions are in line.

Ads appear to be showing so the issue @breeks mentioned is fixed or something else is wrong.

Ads are showing now, one ad only, but an ad it is. I will put them back on tomorrow after the dust settles.

One of my link units is starting to come alive all of a sudden. Dont know if it's catching up from the whole of today or just starting to record revenue from here on out though.

After google took controls of ad sizes i noticed my ctr has steadily declined. I also see some really tiny ads on the mobile phone, like maybe 200 x 50 which perhaps is google getting us ready for the better ad standards. But basically revenue has kindof dropped drastically recently

There is now a serious problem with Adsense the lowest revenues ever.

From 3 digits daily revenues to one digit.

By December I ll see if this business modell is still sustainable

Re: Link Ads.

They seem to all be back on track for me today - so whatever happened yesterday appears to have been a fluke.

Wasn't there a Google update rolling out a few days back? That would account for traffic drops/increases. I've seen some increases myself.

There is more to it than just the update. My adsense reporting is hanging all the time. Stop, sprint, stop, sprint.

@wader : It against TOS of adsense. You are not allowed to ask other people to click your own ads.

You won't get paid for your wife's clicks. Google can figure out a 'natural' click and filter the invalid clicks (either the clicks by your wife or friends). The $850B valued company is smart enough ;)
