This has to be a problem with their reporting, either missing stuff or, more likely, taking time to catch up.
Something (very serious) goes wrong.
My yesterday's stats (8/30) looked had NOT been updated since yesterday afternoon. There is a slice of data shown as today's numbers but far below the normal level.
Considering the 9-day delay of July earning update, I am not very surprised but it did make me a little concern about the accuracy of Adsense's reporting. This is not the first holiday weekend since Adsense went live. Of my two-month Adsense experience, this one is the worst one and a weird one. Normally, the numbers would catch up in hours and in the time order but this time is different. It looked a bunch of yesterday's data were lost. HOPE NOT!
I think that Google should pay more attention to this reporting issue. Recently, it turned out worse and worse. More frequently and longer lagging. Unlike those layout and color features, this is a "basic" one and impacts everyone. I do not expect the "real-time" reporting but please keep the basic function working!
Hope it could be improved!
At my site, at least, this is not like the revenue dropoff at the end of last month. I had normal or better revenue through the end of the month. It wasn't until the first day of August that I experienced a revenue-only dropoff of about 20% versus a normal Friday. I attributed that decline to the expiration of ad campaigns that were scheduled to run through the end of the month.
This weekend's inconsistency between google's stats and my own could still be the recurring problem of slow updates -- but my Saturday google numbers haven't changed in hours. I'm still holding out hope though for a retroactive increase in those numbers to bring them back in line with the other statistics.
Has anybody seen their Saturday stats continuing to change?
Edit: just found a thread related to my post
