Reporting broken? URL channels vs. custom channels

 11:50 am on Oct 23, 2007 (gmt 0)

My stats for today only show URL channel impressions so far, but no custom channel impressions, even though every ad unit is assigned to a custom channel. Yesterday's stats had more URL channel impressions than the sum of custom channel impressions (again, despite every ad unit being assigned to a custom channel).

I understand that "caches" and translation services can cause a discrepancy the other way around, but how is an ad impression possible which counts for my site but doesn't count for one of the custom channels?

I can confirm this as well. My channel reporting has degenerated over the last 3 days, and it now seems completely broken as October 23.

Ditto for the past 3 days for 1 site's custom channels. Another site seems ok.

major reporting problems here too

I thought it was me. My clicks do not add up with my earnings. Only noticed it today. I am getting clicks and money added to the total, but no idea from what channel.
I am getting results for custom channels as well as custom URL's.

I noticed last night that my stats (impressions, clicks & earnings) were completely frozen for about five hours. My server logs, tracking software and Google Analytics all reported traffic as normal, but no more impressions registered in AdSense. Finally got about a dozen more tacked on at the end of the day, a few cents worth of earnings. This morning, no custom channels, like others are reporting, and the url numbers seem way behind too. Plus I never caught up from yesterday. Hope this irons out before too long.

Dang it. I spent 2 hours this morning trying to figure this out. Yes I can confirm as well that one of my custom channels has essentially gone haywire since midday yesterday and is not reporting any or very little impressions.


sheesh... sometimes I don't know what I'd do without webmasterworld to validate/confirm these glitches... probably spending a lot of time crying over my keyboard.... (*chuckle*)...

Same here - I have noticed issues since Saturday, Oct 20th

Today is very messed up!

Yes, it appears that the total number of impressions is normal but the channel data is not being captured.

Same here.
