adCenter will be unavailable today starting at 4 P.M. Pacific time for an upgrade. The release should be complete sometime between 8 P.M. and 10 P.M.

your campaigns will continue to run during the release, but you won't be able to access adCenter.

Tell me about it.

I just signed up at around 3:00 today and figured I would tweak the ads once they got running. Now I can't get in and everything is on broad match.

Just my luck. Oh well, I only started with few keywords so I should be fine.

Although I did a search for my ad and it came up on page 2 even though I'm bidding almost twice what I do on google where I'm number 1. I guess I just need let the click through rate build up or something.

Past your posted time, lets get a move on it.

There should have been more than a 2 hour heads-up on this.

It suddenly stopped on me with no warning. This is no way to win friends - we need more warning.

Even today on the 9th sometimes I can log in and sometimes I can't

Currently get:

Problems logging out too - I logout and all I see is a white screen with no logout confirmation.

Now I get:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<customErrors mode="Off"/>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>

** Luckily the World Cup is just about to start, so I can relax and not get stressed out about this.

The whole program is unacceptable; has been and will be for sometime. Anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves.

I really wonder how much resource they have behind Adcenter. Its so frustrating.

It doesn't matter how many people are working on it - it's obvious that whoever they are are not highly skilled, nor do the understand the PPC marketplace.

hi everyone,
i'm sorry about the short notice yesterday - i realize that our communication wasn't swift enough, and we're putting a system in place to give you significant notice the next time.

there are still some intermittent login issues going on since last night's release. our development team is working to fix these.

Can't login in to the AdCenter - time is now 2:50 PM EST.

I just read this and ..... wow...... lol. The adCenter logon page had posted about the update for a while, and that it was going to be down for a few hours starting on June 8th 4pm PST (yes, days in advance, not "two hours"). Well... back to Foo.........tball! YEAH! (argentina to win XD)
