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.

Also, welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com], BorisVM.

Yes, nearly everyone was suffering the same problems with zero impression this morning, which seems to be fixing itself right now.

They always told me I'd go blind (unable to see stats) if I played with it too much (kept refreshing the stats page) ;)

On a more serious note, they've just started showing impressions in the Midwest, US. Very low, so it probably just started?

After more than 10 hours without stats, mine are finally starting to trickle in.

I'm in Pakistan and just checked again... finally got something other than zeros!

The stats are showing all of 29 imps so far for Monday, 10hrs into the day according to US PST, so I assume that they're playing catch up and all the day's data hasn't been reported. The site avgs about 5k/imps/day and it should be at about 1.5k imps by now.

I don't know if Sunday's stat are accurate -- the imps seem a bit short. I suppose the best way to check if all the stats are current is to keep checking back during the day.

Will post here if something interesting happens.

It looks to me like they applied early Monday's stats to Sunday for some reason. My Sunday was higher than normal, and it works out perfectly if you apply them back.

Does anyone have more than a few dozen impressions for Monday so far?

Yup stats are trickling in now.....i suppose google has to keep us interested somehow now they seem to have done away with the regular updates!

Freeze the adsense stats for a few hours has worked a treat. ;)

Yes, more than a few dozen impressions, but still no clicks.

When my Sunday stats began updating, it wasn't until all the impressions finished updating that the number of clicks jumped up at once. The same might happen until Monday's stats get caught up.

10:42 am Pacific Time (US), and I'm showing impressions in the double digits (usually in 4 digits by now), 0 clicks.

Ads are coming up on the site, but seem very slow to load.

Correction. Now I'm showing clicks in the single digits.

Bizarre. I wonder why Google doesn't put a little announcement blurb on the AdSense page that says what's going on and when it will be fixed, or put in the FAQ to expect things like this from time to time?

Most ad networks have a problem informing the publishers of problems. It also appears to be something that is not consistant with all users. It would be nice to know what is going on, but I would not count on it.

Stats beginning to triiiickle in for me here in California .. 11 am on Monday .. ads displayed and click numbers bothe showing .. ads displayed number veeery low .. but actively increasing at a normal clip now.

Stats for Sunday may or may not "normal". - After a month with Adsense .. still have no clue what "normal" for my stats are.

My faith in the Google geeks is being tested .. but still holding true to my belief that they're continually testing and tweaking for the greater good .. I'm more than willing to forgo some $$ for a day in wacked reporting .. IF they continue to increase the targeting .. which seems to have really improved over the last week.

I know that I've had some missing traffic show up. Definitely some from Sunday. So that tells me that today's traffic will show up, too. I'm not worried.

Very small numbers showing up for Monday. Oddly Sunday, yesterday, is showing as my biggest day ever for impressions without my having changed number of ads, etc.

Although it seems that everyone's now a lot calmer about the situation since all of our numbers have risen above zero, I thought I'd mention that Google responded to my query about what was wrong.

I don't believe that I can paste the msg (read somewhere that it's not allowed at WebmasterWorld), but basically, they're saying that the only thing affected by the outage was the display of the stats and that all imps and clicks were/are being recorded without interruption.

They didn't say what was wrong, only that it was being investigated.

The email i recd. came in about 10 mins ago... 6pm US EST

Mondays numbers do seem very off. By this time I have many more clicks and $$$ then what is showing. I hope they catch up or get the numbers fixed.

I don't think the stats for Monday are right...

I feel similarly. Althought it's not off by an order of magnitude, it certainly doesn't follow my trends and graphs.

Down about 65% today. I'm sure they will catch up. This is Google!

Interestingly, the stats are updating MUCH more often than on a "normal" day - I wonder if this can be attributed purely to "catchup", or if part of the reason why they were down for a while was so that Google could update the reporting to bring it closer to realtime...

for me, ads have stopped showing up on my site even though the JS code is still there... I did, however, once the stats for monday started showing up, notice REALLY high CPC.. like... a low number of clicks for a higher CPC than I've ever seen.. not totally unrealistic, but definitely very high...

anyone else not getting ads right now? (6:53pm CST here..)

If the click number is correct, my average CPC for today has been at almost twice the value of any previous days. May be something to do with the catching up process, or perhaps google decided to give us a bigger share of the booty to say sorry for the problems, not!

Great question! This would help us all out.
