Hi folks,

In the interest of advance planning, I wanted to let you all know this was posted on the Inside AdWords blog a short time ago:

Last weekend’s regularly scheduled AdWords system maintenance was postponed at the last minute. Therefore, we've rescheduled this month’s system maintenance period to occur from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PDT on Saturday, May 19, 2007. While you won't be able to log into your accounts during this time, your campaigns will continue to run as usual. And, as always, we apologize for any inconvenience caused by our scheduled maintenance.

Basically AWA I wanted to know what you people actually do in that system maintenance. Like do your clear off things.. like cleanup and all or you take some other process for maintenance.

Thanks for the update AWA. I was wondering why I was able to access last weekend.

Now I have to go and reschedule another set of consultations ;)

karamkshetra, not being a part of the engineering team I actually don't know, specifically, what is done. And, to be very straightforward about it, even if I were fully informed, it's not really the sort of thing that I'd be able to detail in a public forum that is almost certainly read by our competitors - Heheh. BTW, I think you'll find that most major websites have routine maintenance. It's just kind of, well, routine. ;)

Here's a tip: careful readers of the Inside AdWords blog may have noted that maintenance tends to occur between the hours of 10:00 and 2:00 pm Pacific Time, on the second Saturday of each month (with this month being an exception, as detailed in my previous post).

Now I have to go and reschedule another set of consultations ;)

Well, for that you have my apology Dave_Davis. And I do appreciate your good humor about it. Thanks for that. ;)

Thanks for the Update AWA!

Happy to do it. (And I will try to remember to do it more consistently - but do see the 'tip' above. ;) )

Have you seen this cool website called www.google.com? They're hardly ever down for routine maintenance! You guys should try to figure out how they do it. Maybe try to hire away some of their engineers or something. Or outsource your website design to them. Lots of possibilities there, if you can get them to work with you!

Hi all,

If I seem to be ignoring this forum over the next couple of days, it's only because I'll be away from both office and computer on Tuesday the 22nd and Wednesday the 23rd.

Back to posting on Thursday. ;)

Just a quick heads-up.

Posted to the Inside AdWords blog this morning:

On Saturday, June 9th, the AdWords system will be unavailable from approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PDT due to system maintenance. While you won't be able to log into your accounts during this time, your campaigns will continue to run as usual.

In addition, we thought we'd point out that our system maintenance typically occurs on the second Saturday of each month, during the same hours noted above. We'll continue to update you via the Inside AdWords blog as we always have, but you may want to take note of our intended dates and times to help you plan for any scheduled downtimes further down the road.

I may as well take advantage of this thread to mention that I'll be away from AdWords (and, so, from this forum) for the entire month of July. Oh my... There's a possibility that I'll be gone the first week of August as well.

I'll certainly mention this another time or two before the end of June, and hopefully I'll be able to arrange for AWA2 to check in with Forum81 frequently. ;)

I'll be a away from the office tomorrow, Tuesday June 12 - to assist my parent with some medical issues.

If you notice that I'm not posting, that'll be why. ;)

Back to posting as usual on Wednesday.

Do you think you could warn us advertisers ahead of time when a major quality score change is coming? Some people are being put out of business by the latest one. As far as I know, there was no advance warning and so far there has been no explanation from Google.

Heads up about maintenance is fine. A heads up about putting people out of business would be even nicer.

Just posting one more time as a reminder that I will not be reading or posting in this forum during the month of July. Unless I just can't stop myself.

I'll certainly miss spending time here - but also think that some time off will do me good. I hope to return entirely refreshed.

I've asked AWA2 to check in as frequently as he can, to which he replied 'will do!'

So. See all y'all in about a month. :)

Best,

AWA

A month off!

I had to work 15 years before I got 4 weeks vacation.

Times have changed.

Sailorjwd,

If it makes you feel any better, I've been in my SEM company for 4 years as of next month and there's no 4-year sabbatical program as is the case with most Silicon Valley companies.
