Stats Not Updating

 10:44 pm on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)

stats are not being updated since 2 hours for me. Anyone?



 11:00 pm on Aug 30, 2003 (gmt 0)

Same thing here.


 1:55 am on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

At 10PM EST, my stats are not updating, but the ads are showing.

i am glad to see I am not the only one. Actually, I just thought that the holiday weekend made this an extremely slow saturday. I am glad there should be some more money added to my account.

Stats are slowly updating, but they are still way behind. My best estimate is that impressions should be at least 50% higher than they are.


 5:39 am on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

I thought it was a slow Saturday too, due to the holiday weekend. It will be an improvement if the stats were just slow, and not actually this low.


 5:54 am on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

Stats are updating, but clicks are not. Is anybody else experiencing the same thing?


 6:17 am on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

By stats, I think most people mean all metrics. My impressions still should be about 50% higher than they are, which means the CTR and earnings displayed really don't mean anything.


 6:56 am on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

We're also at about 50% of avg.

I've noticed that ourstats have been updated, compared to thre hours ago, but it hasn't been terribly significant... up a couple of hundred impressions -- not really in line with normal traffic patterns or what our logs say.


 9:39 am on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

Yeah - impressions down 40%, yet my own stats show only around 8% down. I normally get at least 11000 page views per day, so a reduction of this amount cannot be down to partial loading etc.

This has to be a problem with their reporting, either missing stuff or, more likely, taking time to catch up.

I believe the low stats have to do with the holiday weekend.
Check your server traffic logs.

Absolutely not. My general stats program shows me more than double the pageviews, I received. I think we all missed a huge portion of revenue for that day, unless google takes care of that.

My impressions count for yesterday remained virtually unchanged for the last 8 or 9 hours of the day.


 2:04 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

Overall traffic for the 30th was around the same as the 29th but adsense impressions were 30% down, clicks 25% down and revenue 45% down :(

adsense stats for today are also looking rather low..


 2:39 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

same thing happened last month.. the 1st was even worse we will have to wait and see this time


 3:21 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

Google ads displayed are only 23% of the pageviews in my server stats (normally around 75%). I've puntered my site and just find perfectly targeted ads.

Something (very serious) goes wrong.


 3:23 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

I noticed the same thing, i had a extra 20% traffic in the last 2 days, and my clicks are 50% lower then 3 days ago. I normally average close to 100 cliks. I don't think so...


 3:26 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

The stat updates seem slow every Monday morning to me, then they seem to catch up (I know this isn't Monday...) - could the reporting system be in maintenance mode or something?


 3:42 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

What is going on with Adsense's reporting?

My yesterday's stats (8/30) looked had NOT been updated since yesterday afternoon. There is a slice of data shown as today's numbers but far below the normal level.

Considering the 9-day delay of July earning update, I am not very surprised but it did make me a little concern about the accuracy of Adsense's reporting. This is not the first holiday weekend since Adsense went live. Of my two-month Adsense experience, this one is the worst one and a weird one. Normally, the numbers would catch up in hours and in the time order but this time is different. It looked a bunch of yesterday's data were lost. HOPE NOT!

I think that Google should pay more attention to this reporting issue. Recently, it turned out worse and worse. More frequently and longer lagging. Unlike those layout and color features, this is a "basic" one and impacts everyone. I do not expect the "real-time" reporting but please keep the basic function working!

Hope it could be improved!

My traffic yesterday was down only slightly (2%) from the previous Saturday. My adsense-registered impressions, however, are down more than 30%.

At my site, at least, this is not like the revenue dropoff at the end of last month. I had normal or better revenue through the end of the month. It wasn't until the first day of August that I experienced a revenue-only dropoff of about 20% versus a normal Friday. I attributed that decline to the expiration of ad campaigns that were scheduled to run through the end of the month.

This weekend's inconsistency between google's stats and my own could still be the recurring problem of slow updates -- but my Saturday google numbers haven't changed in hours. I'm still holding out hope though for a retroactive increase in those numbers to bring them back in line with the other statistics.

Has anybody seen their Saturday stats continuing to change?


 4:21 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

My traffic yesterday was similar to the Saturday before (according to my stats), but my adsense stats were way low on both impressions and clicks. The adsense stats are looking even more out of sync for today.


 6:22 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

Based on my traffic, today's impressions should be about 2.5 times higher than what is showing.


 6:39 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

I just checked my account, and my earnings etc have doubled for yesterday from what it said a few hours ago. So it looks like they are just pretty slow at updating, and it could still continue to climb.


 6:52 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

wow my revenue just jumped $23 (actual revenue figure removed)... looks like things are getting back to normal.

Added: sorry ;)

irock, you might want to edit your post to remove the dollar figures, as per the AdSense terms ;)


 7:27 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

I hopped over the Adsense forum because my impressions were way down but my clicks are about normal (and maybe even a bit high). This has caused an excessively high click through rate (5 times higher than normal) which had me worried about being interpreted as fraudulent clicks. I am thinking that what I am observing might be related to this thread.

Edit: just found a thread related to my post


 8:26 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

seem to be playing catch-up now


 8:34 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

for the 30th and 31st, clicks and revenue have returned to somewhere near normality, impressions are still rather lower than expected.



 11:17 pm on Aug 31, 2003 (gmt 0)

It looks like Saturday, 8/30 impressions have been fully updated. 8/31 is still way off.
