How many times you check adsense per day?

Do I have a problem?

I check stats over 10 times a day, is this normal or do I have a problem?

About 4 times an hour, 14 hours a day = 56 times a day.

Haha! Obsessive stat checking is pretty normal, especially over the first few months of AdSense, for a lot of us. I do find myself checking a lot -- probably about 10 or so times.

Maybe we need an AdSense "12-Step" program:

1. Admit that you are powerless over AdSense, and that your life has become unmanageable.

2. Come to believe that a power greater than yourself can restore you to sanity. (Perhaps the Google engineering team?)

3. Make a decision to turn your will and your life over to the care of Google, as you understand It.

4. Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of your website's ad blocks.

....
?

(Note: This is intended to be tongue-in-cheek, and in no way disrespectful to the many real 12-step programs that exist, several of which I (or various family members) have participated in in the past.)

I used to check it every hour, but then the excitment wore off and my earnings became predictable. Now I only check it once a day. I've kicked the habit!

About 10 times a day, but I know I'm a stats addict cause I will even check when getting up to go to the bathroom at night! Well it is on the way and my laptop is always on...

i am addicted to checking my adsense stats. At least 15 times a day. It feels good to check how much money you make without getting up early in the morning to look at an annoying boss.

Ever notice that the update order is: Page impressions> Clicks> Clickthrough rate> Your earnings.

I check once or twice a day. I suspect when it's not so new to me I'll check much less often. Right now I'm still rearranging the ads and looking at what I need to block but that is about done.

So no, I'm not addicted to AdSense stats. Not like I was to the old Google updates. Now that was a real adrenaline rush. Not like the more recent ones that drag on and on. The old ones you knew when they had started and more or less when they would end. There was a great element of chance in them as you hoped all your work of the last month would pay off. Meanwhile messages would come up on Google News to check this, or how about that. You could check your backlinks, your place in the serps on different Googles and wonder about how your PR would turn out. Those were the good old days. That was worth checking out when you woke up in the wee hours of the morning. The Google Dance was really addictive and I do miss it. :)

With the free scripts out there, I have kicked the habit. Now I just get a page once it reaches a certain amount. Depending on when I get the page determines how my day will go.

Well I use urchin, so the pageviews stats are delayed till the day ends and the logs are generated. In order to get only slightly delayed stats, I use adsense to see the number of page views, add a couple of thousand to that and know the pageviews for the day. Oh and of course the $ column too ;)

About 3-5 times a day.

Not all the time I think you will find. Originally I assumed they were all updated simultaneously but now with more experience I think that they are probably updated independently and the sequencing can be any order. I often see 'impressions' lagging 'clicks' and some orders are more common than others.

Once a day :(

Until I realised my earnings were inversely proportional to the amount of times I checked the stats, I checked them all the time.

I check it once a day. But I have a feeling that I will be checking it *a lot more* when the new stats program comes :-)

A few times too many, I am trying to wean myself from checking so often.

I have to wonder if there is an inverse relationship between checking and earning. *

With all the different revenue accounts to check one must ask: why? what are the odds it will lead to action?

I see two legit reasons:

1. To see if there has been prolonged, significant abnormal activity, i.e. catastrophe or jackpot, perhaps once a week, less often over time.

2. To analyze the effects of testing (new colors, positions, formats, etc) and the impact on earnings.

This has been a public service announcement to free up system resources. ;-)

* oops, beat to the punch by 2oddSox.

Being new, I check about 6 times a day.
When I add ads to a new page I check more the following day.

I sure wish I could have some idea which ads are producing.
(if they could just tell me as a percent of revenue I would be happy)

You need help man, I got a refresh script running over my AS page a re/log-in and set it up as my homepage on four boxes standing side by side, if the pages were to turn in real I could use my box as a fan having AS control panel on...

Only: the real fun kicks in when you go out for a beer or ten and come back after four hours, just to learn that you have made double as much on AdSense as you just spent with your friends...

I check it every hour.

:)

AdSense policies do not allow to discuss adsense renebue publicly (I remembered). But I am really very curious how much average webmasters get from Adsense monthly.
