Okay, the changes I made were nearly 24 hours ago now. Any change on the impressions front?! (fingers crossed!!)

For me - too early to tell. Yesterday was up a bit but that's normal for a Monday. Sunday saw 274 and Monday saw 365. But, since my day isn't over yet - I'll report back in the morning. We're sitting at 175 presently though prior to the glitch, we'd be in the 300-400 impressions range by now (2:00pm).

Nope, unfortunately not, have 3 impressions today, has been 1-4 for days now. The first bad days saw 10-15, down from there.
I wonder why it even dropped further after a few days with about a dozen impressions.
Still, alo clicks/income are a bit lower as I compared it to quite a few weeks before the mess up.
So I guess Isa's theory about google doing some self enrichment here is true.
Still, i wonder why I am not able to find any forum thread on google about it anywhere on the web. That still gives me the IMPRESSION that it might be something over here, which is also obviously not the case after all the research you did Sam.
Sorry to keep you bugging;)

Just like the others ... nothing. and in my case really nothing, zero, nada, null.

Like Michael I have the feeling that it is likely that we internet world be shouting Fire !!!, if it would be a global thing.

On the adsense blog I can can only find something about filtering, on the 4th of august, which is when the trouble started. Probably a coincidence, as I can't imagine that this would cause problems. Btu .... As these filters are for English only, would it cause problems for the guide, in case of selecting adds for Asia or Spanish talking countries?

Yesterday: 321 impressions, 1 click and a whopping 15 cents in earnings.

Isa now leaves to go drown her sorrows by making some Kiva loans.

That's almost evidence that also the click/income is influenced

Since I plot everything in Excel, the graphs have definitely begun to show clicks and income are affected too.

My impressions are still way down and i am starting to also think its affecting clicks.

I'm posting on Google's forums as we speak but so far no answer. If this is a Google bug there is basically very little we can do about it. If it isn't, it's certainly not something obvious or else we'd have fixed it a while ago. Sorry everyone, doing the best I can with the resources available :(
