Since we experienced some conversion delays last week we monitor things very closely and as of today it seems the conversion reporting is much faster. In about 5 campaigns I see conversions reported on today that have just come in. I have not seen that in the last 6 months or so.

Are you seeing this too or is it just coincidental? (yes tracking conversions is something in which we have a special interest :))

I was actually going to post this same thing. It seems like the 2-6 hour reporting delay has been reduced to an almost real-time level of click reporting, which is a very good thing. I wonder if they can continue this through the holiday season, when the traffic levels spike up considerably.

Yep it is amazing, both click and conversion reports are near real-time. Is this just a service for us Europeans :)

yep...noticed AdWords reporting has been very responsive since yesterday.

Did they build a "crystal ball" feature into AdWords? One of my campaign's conversion stats is reporting conversions which I don't have yet ;) <fingers crossed>

I think some stats are noticeably off...

Actually, it's a special service for WebmasterWorld members only! ;)

HaHa. Oh, I am so funny!

Seriously though, I'm delighted that some folks have noticed increased speed in reporting. As I've said often in the past, this is a key point that is always being looked at - with an eye towards getting it, and keeping it, faster.

Hmmm. I'll be keeping my eye on this thread to see what transpires.
