Confusing Crawler Error email

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 5+ Year Member

Msg#: 4628145 posted 6:28 pm on Dec 5, 2013 (gmt 0)

I got an email from Adsense today (from adsense-noreply@google.com) that starts off, in big print:

180 failed AdSense crawls detected

and suggests what I should do to fix it. But my Status > Crawler Errors page lists no errors, nor has it in the past, I know because I check this occasionally.

Is this something I should be worried about? Has anybody else gotten an email like this?

Probably not. It could be a fake (it's easy to spoof an email address - hopefully you didn't click on a link from the email) If you don't see any in your account, and you're not seeing anything unusual in GWT you're probably fine.

AdSense knows their crawl error stuff is out of whack, and I have been told by someone in support that they will be working on improving it after the new year.

I got that email today too. Funny thing is that there is normally some things listed in that report for me and today it was blank. I think the glitch this AM may have affected that report and this email just had the bad timing to go out when the report was broken.

Definitely not fake. Message was in my Adsense control panel Messages inbox as well.

As of now, Crawler Error report still blank.
