Pretty normal. I think Google holds backs clicks on a rotating basis for checking (or just to cause confusion!). Maybe they do this with 5% or 10% of all accounts each day.... Just a theory, based on posts like this.

It freezed since June 17. I would consider it is the effect from another major "update" taking place starting from the 3rd week of June.

To minimize the loss, I replaced AS codes from some pages by another CPM ads during the period, probably it would last for next few days or the whole June, who knows ... :P

I've noticed for a few wekks now that clicks are coming through later than page impressions leading to crazy swings in eCPM and CTR but it all levels out at the end of the day, they seem to be analising clicks in groups before attributing them to the account but that is just a guess.

or just to cause confusion

Is it stated anywhere in the TOS that Google is obliged to update Adsense stats in a "timely" manner?

We all just assume that if you get 1,000 page impressions in a day, any clicks (and revenues) from those impressions will be credited by the end of that day. But maybe not. Indeed, maybe Google shifts clicks (and revenues and ...) around from day to day to sow confusion. Better to keep us in the dark and guessing...

No but keeping columns in sync would be nice.

Do most people agree that clicks and page impressions are not updated at the same time?

Page Impressions are high all day, CTR down, then toward midnight California time, it all starts to balance out.

And I notice different channels will update faster than others, and vice versa.

It seems that way to me.

My impressions are also way down today.

Google actually states in their Adwords accounts that statistics reporting is not real time, and clicks received within the past 3 hours may not appear yet.

Would be nice if a similar statement was made available to Adsensers.
