Bringing this subject line back to the top of the page for the February scheduled maintenance alert.

Just published on the Inside AdWords blog:

On Saturday, February 16th, the AdWords system will be unavailable from approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PST due to scheduled maintenance. While you won't be able to sign in to your accounts during this time, your campaigns will continue to run as usual.

AdWords system maintenance typically occurs on the second Saturday of each month during the above times -- with this month being an exception to that rule, as previously noted in our January maintenance update.

We'll continue to update you via the 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.

This Saturday the all-important thrice-yearly Decravinator Balancing is taking place, netmeg.

OK, not really.

That's just a fancy way of saying that, while I was aware of the maintenance (mentioned as a possiblity three posts above) and was waiting for the usual Inside AdWords blog post to go out before I posted about it myself, I don't actually know what specific maintenance is being undertaken.

Sorry not to have been able to be more helpful.

Even though netmeg beat me to the punch, I'll quote the Inside AdWords blog as I routinely do - since it contains some useful information.

You'll note that the maintenance may be a bit longer than usual.

AdWords system maintenance on June 21st

On Saturday, June 21, 2008, the AdWords system will be unavailable from approximately 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. PDT, for maintenance -- as was noted in our previous maintenance update, earlier this month.

While you won't be able to sign in to your accounts during this time, your campaigns will continue to run as usual. This particular maintenance may last up to one hour longer than typical maintenance sessions.

AdWords system maintenance typically occurs on the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Pacific time), with this month being an exception to that rule.

We'll continue to update you via the 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.

You beat me to it once again, Netmeg - and you are quite correct. :)

Yes, the maintenance planned for last weekend was postponed, and rescheduled for this weekend.

Please note that the maintenance is planned to run about an hour longer than usual: with the system being unavailable from approximately 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. PDT

It's mentioned on the Inside AdWords blog as usual, BTW, but I thought I'd not quote them for once. ;)

Now that I've decided for sure and all the footwork is done, I wanted to post with a very early advance notice that I will be taking a leave from AdWords for two months, starting October 1st and returning (refreshed but incredibly far behind) on December 1st.

I'll do my very best to find the perfect AWA2 to step-in during that period, but darned if I haven't discovered that my colleagues are really busy with their own core tasks! Who knew? ;)

I have someone in mind, to be sure. Now I simply need to talk to her manager, make a compelling case, and pry loose some time.

Anyway - I'll mention this a time or two before October 1st, but wanted to say it now, well before the fact.

Best,

Here it is the Wednesday before the second Saturday of the month - and that is a sure sign that it's time for a maintenance alert quoted from the Inside AdWords blog:

AdWords system maintenance on August 9th

On Saturday, August 9th, 2008 the AdWords system will be unavailable from approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PDT, for maintenance. While you won't be able to sign in to your accounts during this time, your campaigns will continue to run as usual.

I didn't see this till now ember - many thanks for the best wishes. ;)

My current plans extend no further than the back yard. However, two odd (and entirely separate) quirks of fate seem to be leading me to a monastery in the middle of a river in Rome and a house in the middle of a river in London. What is up with the rivers theme, I ask you?!

Aaaach! I have been so swamped recently that I totally failed to follow my usual practice of alerting you to upcoming maintenance.

This was posted yesterday on the Inside AdWords blog:

AdWords system maintenance on August 23rd

On Saturday, August 23rd, 2008, the AdWords system will be unavailable from approximately 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PDT, for maintenance. While you won't be able to sign in to your accounts during this time, your campaigns will continue to run as usual.

Heheh!

As is now traditional, I'd like to quote the Inside AdWords blog -- to let you know of system maintenance coming up this Saturday.

I got up earlier than usual today, just so I could beat netmeg to it!

On Saturday, September 13th, 2008 the AdWords system will be unavailable from approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PDT, for maintenance. While you won't be able to sign in to your accounts during this time, your campaigns will continue to run as usual.

Greetings one and all,

I thought I'd better update my July 31 post to this thread, since things have changed recently. From the perspective of WebmasterWorld members this change might be seen as good or bad news - all depending on one's perspective. ;)

Anyway, way back then, I wrote:

Now that I've decided for sure and all the footwork is done, I wanted to post with a very early advance notice that I will be taking a leave from AdWords for two months, starting October 1st and returning (refreshed but incredibly far behind) on December 1st. [...]

The update is that I am no longer taking a two 2 month leave. Instead, I'll be taking a two week vacation (Sept 29th through Oct 13th) - during which time I hope to purchase a dryer to replace the one which has been busted for 10 months and get my laundry done. All of it. That and do some serious Spring Cleaning, now that it is Fall.

So, bottom line, I will be gone for two weeks rather than two months. Sad to say, I have not found a perfect temporary replacement for myself who was also available during this time. As a result, Forum=81 will be 'AWA free' for a couple of weeks.

Good thing, or bad thing? Well, only you can decide. :)

Me, I am glad to be getting a bit of time off from the rather intense world of AdWords - but I know I will miss this group like crazy. It's been part of my day for five years now!

If during the next two weeks someone says I'm ignoring their question, please point them to this thread, OK? ;)

Best,

AWA

Well, I arrived back from my two week vacation quite refreshed, then immediately jumped into catch-up mode. And, I'm still trying to get there.

I haven't had a chance to do much reading or posting in this forum as a result - but I do hope to be back on track by Monday. :)

In the meantime, I wanted to at least get this maintenance alert posted - and have quoted a Wednesday Inside AdWords blog post below:

AdWords system maintenance on October 18th

On Saturday, October 18th, 2008 the AdWords system will be unavailable from approximately 10AM to 2PM PDT, for maintenance. While you won't be able to sign in to your accounts during this time, your campaigns will continue to run as usual.

AdWords system maintenance typically occurs on the second Saturday of each month from 10AM to 2PM PDT with this week's maintenance being an exception.
