    New pay period. The Dashboard "starts over" with each pay period. You can change that by using the drop down on the right hand top to switch other time frames.
    And the rollercoaster stats, i'm sure Donny has an idea and eventually an explanation as to what's going on with the traffic.

    Like you I'm also just showing stats and trying to understand from more experienced domainers if some of these trends also apply to them.

    Being relatively new to this I still don't know what my TQ score is although I was told that I should know it either this week or next. Perhaps my TQ is already out and is low and I don't know it yet!

    I agree with you about Donny. We are all lucky to have such a person amongst us.

    I'm thinking there was some kind of strange bot activity. I can always tell when things are running a little weird; as you know I have a wide variety of sites where I have all 50 state names, plus whatever keywords. When I see visits (and yesterday it was clicks!) where it looks like someone is going through state by state, then I'm pretty sure it's a bot of some kind. Yesterday I was seeing clicks on things like alabamawidgets.com then alaskawidgets.com then arizonawidgets.com and so on. Or if I see illinois, indiana and iowa all in a row - stuff like that. Needless to say, those clicks from yesterday are gone today. Which is okay - I have seen this often enough to know they are probably not real, and I was expecting them to be taken out.

    What's he going to explain? For each one of you with suffering stats there are as many of us seeing our profits going up. It seems like things are bad because people like to post more often when things are going wrong, and don't post as often when things are going well.

    Yes it's the TQ - your traffic doesn't pay as much as you think it should. Yahoo has determined that some traffic is worth more than others - that's just the way it works. Try your under-achieving domains at another company or two and see what happens. Even Donny has recommended that!

    Sorry to be harsh - but there we are.

    Who said things are going bad?!?!?! For the record, i had an a highly satisfactory pay period this January.
    What i'm (was) hoping to find out is why there's a pattern of 3 lower days followed by a smashing day. If that's not a legitimate question than i don't know what is.

    It is a little harsh, I think. Some of us (supposedly) have high TQ scores still, but have seen large and sudden drops. It's not unreasonable to wonder what is going on.

    I very much agree with you netmeg.

    sorry to say domainer50, but that is not unusual at all.... estimates are estimates. Parked pays for what Yahoo reports, the estimates are a courtesy. Sometimes bots slip through the cracks and clicks get counted that shouldn't.

    Estimates on earnings yes. But I find that very hard to believe.

    Actually things are really great. On of my domains just reached 5800% CTR for today. :hehe:
    Sure, tomorrow these clicks will be deleted. Still nice to look for now.

    I am seeing that as well....regular traffic on a couple of domains but they are getting like 100+200+clicks with 10 visitors. So this is a reporting bug correct?

    Some of the parking companies have come up with a way to better recognize bots. I've seen my overall traffic decrease at SedoPro, Parked, and Fabulous, but my CTR has gone up and revenue is about the same.

    I had 3 names with an RPM over $1000 today. They just chopped 80 clicks off of one, I guess the other two are next to go. :'(

    Oh well.

    Tomorrow the new TQ scores come out, but I will not be around in the morning as I will be going to visit our friends at Yahoo to see what is going on. One of our programmers is currently in the process of getting the TQ scores added to the front page once you login. I would say I would just post his phone number so everybody could call him, but I don't think he would get it done any faster. So I would expect that to be available either tomorrow or Friday at the latest. And over the next week or so you will see some of the new graphing features we will be working on as well where you can see a historical TQ score view.

    And for all of you .mobi nuts, we should be .mobi compliant by the end of the week, hopefully.

    We have seen a bot the past 2-3 days that has been clicking on a few random domains. If you have a domain that normally doesn't get much traffic and it all of a sudden gets 100 hits and 200-300+ clicks, don't expect to get paid for it. Sorry.

    Now to go pack. I will probably check on everything later tonight and tomorrow morning, but not until I back from my meeting tomorrow.

    I too see one of my domains that usually gets little or no traffic, today has an RPM of $8,100. and a CTR of 5,400%.

    I am also seeing this pattern of 3 days of reasonable changes in revenue for EOD vs Final followed by a fourth unreasonable day. Yesterday my Final revenue dropped 10% compared to EOD.

    There is definitely something odd going on starting Jan. 5th (for me anyway).

    Another interesting item: I asked my Account Manager what my TQS is now, and he said I do NOT have a TQS right now, but I should have one by next week. My last TQS was 9 on Jan. 5th.

    Could this all be related to Yahoo changing their TQS formula? Could this explain all the strange numbers lately?
