    My adsense stats are WEIRD. Overall impressions and clicks are DOWN but my earnings have gone from average $1.50 a day and after Yahoo update I had $27.50 worth of clicks yesterday (usually takes me more then a week to get that in clicks :D )

    Worst thing is I made the mistake of not using channels and tracking where these clicks are coming from. I have quite a few sites and I'm not sure at the minute what sites are making the increased revenue :confused:

    CTR is up from about 3% to 32% too after the update.

    Not really affected me much as only a small % of my traffic comes from Yahoo.

    I got a #1 and a #3 (6k search a day) on Yahoo but adsense wise no change at all... page impression increased but clicks did not. So... was excited but it's gone. :(

    Hmm, my main site got moved to number 317 on these update.. When yahoo bans you, do they complete de-index you, or do they hide you deep in the 300's? Not sure if I got banned, I used to be in the top 10 for this term, number 1 on google - same term, same site.

    "CTR is up from about 3% to 32% too after the update."

    hmmm..unless the quality of visitors you receive is much "better" than what it used to be, this is really a weird stat...

    Hope for you it's not some kind of click fraud..

    My adsense is down 50% but all my sites pages have been indexed by yahoo i have now nearly all my pages for all my sites in yahoo but my earnings are down looks like yahoo are creating a sandbox perhaps.
    All this though is strange that you have more pages and yet less traffic anyone alse seen this.

    H-U-G-E improvement.. couldn't be happier. Yahoo is paying for my trip to Canada!!!

    Yeah, baby!!! :D

    Best thing is that about 10 sites had juge jumps in rankings, so even if Yahoo starts doing more changes, I still have a big chance of keeping some sites well ranked.

    *doing the happy dance*
