Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
My apologies to those who are experiencing this.
I think I can be of some assistance here. If you're being timed-out, then following the steps below should be effective as a workaround until this has been fully resolved.
* Log out of AdWords; clear the browser's cookies; close any all browser windows; relaunch the browser; log back in to the system.
I'm sure almost all of us have cleared cookies, cache, etc. That's NOT the answer; please communicate to your Tech Team that there is a problem and it's day 8 now. I spoke with someone last week at Google who admitted there were server issues...Why this hasn't be resolved is disappointing to say the least.
I also got the "official" answer from the e-mail support team.
Had been logging in and working without time outs for nearly a year with nary a hiccup until now.
This problem is annoying and time-wasting and I want it to go away.
There! I've thrown my toys out of the pram.
(Rant isn't aimed at you AWA, your help is always appreciated)
Before this I called Google a couple of times and each time it was the first they heard of it. I still have not heard back from Technical as promised (from the conference on Tuesday).
However, today I was told from Google that they were aware of the issue and were working to resolve it.
Summary: Does anyone have the real answer?
I think this is a good example of everyone sharing their problems and something good coming from it.
