I actually made another change too, but I'll keep that secret until we see how the first 24-48 hours have gone :)

OK, time's up: nobody is back to 0, so spill it ...

If it has to do with the fonts of the google ads, than I noticed a couple of times that not the whole text was displayed on some ads. At least I noticed it a couple of times yesterday. The last line was only visible for around 50%

First off, everything jumping back seems directly associated with the removal of the ad on the left. We might make another change or two in the coming days to see if we can fix something else, but I'm sure you all will not hesitate to tell us if it causes your impressions to plummet again? :)

The font on the right is maddening. I've got no idea why Google isn't sticking with the default font, so will try a fix there later today too. That's certainly not intended on our behalf.

Is anyone seeing more impressions than before this all started? It wouldn't be a lot more, but there was a small bug that I got rid of which should mean more impressions for a few of you...

No, not more impressions. About the same.

Sam, what are the fixes you intend to do?
If it's something which has to be fixed, I will be the last one to stop you. If it's something which 99,9% of the members don't see anyway and it's just for...well, I don't know actually...than I would advise not to.
Sometimes, changes aren't for the better in my opinion. ;)

We don't fix things that don't have to be fixed That doesn't mean it will be noticed by a lot of people, as there are changes going up daily that are necessary yet not noticed....

Understood Sam. What exactly is it we are talking about which can influence impressions again?
Have you fixed it now? That way I can tell the differences

It´s hard to say after just one full day in which the views are back, but it is a little bit higher (a personal record on views.), although I have been adding text as well in the last 3 weeks, so again not really something that can be compared.

It´s change we need !!!

No - not yet anyway. But, very please to have had 1100+ impressions yesterday! That's smack-dab in the middle of the pre-bug impression range for me.

Thanks again, Sam. The clicks and earnings are back up where they were before too. ;)

Thought I would resurrect this old thread rather than start a new one for a simple question...

Page impressions have been holding quite steady, though there has been a bit of a decrease which I'm blaming on the holidays. Expected as much there. But, this has to do with the number of clicks anyway.

Did anyone see a huge spike in their click count on Friday, December 18th? I mean a HUGE spike and only for that day. The TPF account saw 50 clicks (for a 6.41%) with only 780 page impressions. Since the beginning, TPF has not seen a double-digit click count - ever.

I found it quite "out of the ordinary" and all those clicks generated $1.66 in earnings - which isn't all that much considering. Not only is it odd (in my mind) but it's just skewed my graphs all to hell.
