How many times a day do you check your G.Adsense account?
Random Question...Out of curiosity

I have been tracking my earnings several times a day and was wondering if it is really worth the time and effort and stress it involves when you earn less a day. BUT, I think I am addicted to Google adsense and login several times during the day.

On average i login my google account 3-5 times/day during work.

How many times a day do you check your Google balance?

When it is deposited into my bank account electronically each month. That's about the only time I check anymore these days. :)

Pageoneresults, good for you. You should leave it that way.
Because I feel that I have spent too much time trying to analyze why somedays I make two cents more or less and it really isnt worth it.

On the other hand since I am still in the process of developing my new websites, I feel that I need to anaylze my traffic and earning.

Some day soon, Ill quit this addiction... :)

I shall. :)

I guess the excitement has worn off for me. I used to check in more frequently but now it is not really required. I just look at the total amounts being deposited each month and think to myself, "Man, I love this Internet thing!".

Well, yeah. if you love the internet thing that implies that you're making good bucks.
I still rely on my full time job,

Slightly more often than I check to see if there are nay new posts on my favourite forums ;) Much too often.

To work out how well things are performing and to look at adjustments, I think a week's worth of data is the abolute minumum to enable a meaningful assessment.

But if things go wrong, you may want to make rapid changes. My ads all went off target back in December. I lost money for a day until I understood what the problem was. On 26th December, my host server failed - I didn't spot this for several hours. AdWords was paying out just fine - Adsense wasn't recording any increase in impressions. Had I checked more often it would have cost me less.

I record my stats at 6 points in the day - if I'm at my PC. If not I just worry.

The days that I stay home, I usually check it twice a day. Once when I get up, and once more before I go to sleep. When I go away, I do not check it at all. I would not want to log into my account from another computer.

I use the firefox extension, so whenever I happen to load up firefox, which is usually a couple times a day at least - (for unrelated reasons I have it set up so that my IE goes through the DSL connection and Firefox through the cablemodem)

Once a day. I used to waste much more of my time checking Adsense and other stats. I still check my traffic many times a day.

I have the firefox extension, but generally I check on yesterdays results for the channels once a day.

But, when I'm launching a new site, like right now, I have a tendency to check several times a day to see how many impression are coming in, and to celebrate that first click! Yeah, I was dancing around on Tuesday celebrating making less than a quarter.

The excitement on the new site tends to wear off when it hits about 50 impressions a day, then I go back to the old routine of mostly ignoring it throughout the day.

I use the Google sidebar with the AdSense Status plug-in.

I only log-in when I want specific channel info.

Frequent checkers may be suffering from GASS!

I now check once every two or three weeks, sometimes is as frequently as once a week.

Hourly, maybe down to 3 hours if I really get bogged down in something.
I check URL channels to use it as a cheats-test that all my websites are up :)

Oddly enough, the more I make the less I check. Whenever I get smart priced or take a hit in the serps I check more often.

About 3 times a day on average. It doesn't really update quick enough to check more often, which is probably good in a way.

I use our tracking/analyzing tool (Shareware). It saves a lot of time, although I still check it hourly or so. ;-)

Especially when exciting things are happening. This year's CES has doubled our regular traffic, so it's fun to watch the impressions rise (Earnings rise has not been as good, but still nice).

Too often. In fact, reading the replies to this thread wasted valuable time I could've spent having another look. :)

haha! once or twice a month.. just let it run, you can't really see trends until you've got some age on it anyway..

And you certainly can't let it run your life in such an obsessive way? IMO

Then I do not allow my entire income rely on what google offers, some diversification is good for business and good for your head too..

Once a day. I used to check more often but after 3 years and more ups and downs than I care to count, well, I'm afraid the thrill is gone.

-yes. I also think the more you make the less you check. and that is why I check several times a day. ;) I still have a long way to go.

If I could install a neural tap that would feed my AdSense data directly into my brain in real time, I would.

Just kidding. But I do check too often.

My name is Pengi and I'm an Adsensaholic.

I suspect there are other issues that affect how frequently people check their stats.

1. People will a lot of traffic may tend to check more often - there's no point in checking if you don't expect anything to have changed. For me, there is always a significant change if I look once an hour unless I have a problem somewhere

2. People who can take immediate corrective actions may tend to check more often - are you checking for interest, or are you checking to see if you need to do something. For me, much of my traffic is paid for via AdWords. If the AdSense performance falls short of expectations, I can pause my AdWords campaigns to avoid making a loss.
