Is anyone else not getting AdSense ads on their pages right now? I noticed the impressions hadn't gone up in at least a half hour. The browser just sits there trying to load them.

Try doing a traceroute to the adsense computer and see where the problems start.

It could be a network issue. Try to see from a remote computer (like your web server) to see if it can reach the adsense machine.

BTW, adsense is working fine for me.

On a related note .. is anyone else experiencing delayed STATS .. I'm on the west coast, it's a bit after one AM on the 28th .. adsense reporting is properly displaying the date rollover .. but appears to be delayed in showing stats for at least the last few hours.

ads are properly showing and nicely targeted as ever.

This happened once before .. and it made me paranoid! - Something I come by naturally on my own thank you very much.

No stats here either. AdSense did the same a few nights ago (I usually work quite late so I noticed it). The next morning, it was working fine.

This is true but I think this is longest for the stats to come back that I know of.

Don't almost all webmasters work late at night? Do they ever stop working ;)

I hope, they are not missing out on impressions / clicks .. This is peak traffic time for my site ( bored office workers browsing after lunch ) ..

Stats down but adverts being shown. (1015 Irish (GMT+1)). They must be crunching figures or something.

I'm having trouble sleeping (hayfever) so I quite often check the stats in the middle of the night. The figures I see at the moment are the same as they were about 4.00am BST. So, I think there should be at least 4 hours of Sunday to come.

I don't think so. They have software bug
that causes AdSense not to work.

How many millions bucks will people lost due to this bug?

AdSense is not working now - 0 impressions and 0 click and 0 bucks...

hey polish guy, I dont think the loss ( if there is one ) is going to run into millions ... not YET.

I dont think adsense is that popular .. One day it might be though.

I would like to mention that although the stats are not working, the adverts are properly being served on my site. I remember that same thing had happened earlier, and when the stats had indeed started working again, the lost hours were calculated in too.

Thus I wouldn't worry much. :)

>>No stats, no ads

Whilst I am not getting stats, I am seeing targetted ads on my sites.

No doubt some tormented soul is running round Googleplex with a spanner trying to fix the problem ;)

Ads are running fine as far as I can see.

This kind of delay on stats happened about a week ago. They caught up later in the day. No big deal.

You know people love Adsense when an outage is reported by 20 users within a few minutes of it happening.

He he, nice to know I'm not the only one checking stats every few minutes.

the stats are down for many hours now so not "every few minutes" checking is needed to discover it. it is enough that I check it in the morning and then I see it...

anyway: now in USA there is middle of the night so google people are simply sleeping. when they will wake up they will fix it... so much for google people working 24 hours a day... it's not truth.

I can almost say for certain that Google have staff working around the clock. To say that there is nobody awake on the entire USA Google staff is crazy...

Shows the importance of Webmasterworld too though, because as soon as I saw that my Adsense report showed 0 impressions and 0 clicks, I logged in here to see if anyone else had the same problem.

It was nice to see a thread that touched on the subject right near the top of the list, and it re-inforced why I like this site so much.

Real information about stuff that matters.

yeah, I am crazy, but please note that cleaning lady does not count - she can't repair this bug... I meant some real staff, that is for sure now sleeping (Google is on the west coast of USA and it has the same time as Seattle)

Polish guy,

When you have a 24/7 business like google has, it is more or less guarenteed that there will be someone always monitoring what is happenning .. Imagine what will happen if the main google site is down or the ad serving itself is down ... Then google will stand to lose some serious money ...

So somebody is up there awake .. Maybe on a nightshift ... Maybe outsourced ;-)

But certainly whoever is awake doesnt seem to know much about how to turn on reporting for adsense :)
