Google just sent out an email explaining that there had been a delay with February clicks which has been corrected.

The best news is that there will be an adjustment next month for uncredited January clicks.

I just got the same.

I wonder how much, and how long before we see the credit?

Is this another update or just one informing us of the correction that happened around the middle of the month.

From memory 26th of Feb clicks have been adjusted up by approx. 18% . 27th unchanged and is unchartistically dowm by approx. 20%.

The report update is in the past tense - so they are reporting what has been done already.

The adjustment is to occur in the February "earnings".

Of course who really knows for sure.

I haven't seen any change yet. That letter had me a little worried though until I read it. lol

Like doingthistoolong stated, the credit for Feb has already been done.

I log all my stats into a db daily. Several days ago, when checking the numbers, virtually every single day was off by a few bucks. If you aren't logging your stats, the difference was most likely small enough to go unnoticed.

I was wondering if anyone else almost had a heart attack!

I just got the email and I do not see any changes to previous days in Feb. But today is strong so maybe they are loading it into one day.

This is my post, wrote just before the email was received.

From SEOGrrl
If it helps you will be getting an email that explains that there was a reporting delay for the Month of February and that the clicks etc. are now correct.

Just let some of you who're not the AdWords users, be informed that there is a such note in the AdWords account which states:

Due to a recent system delay, your account reported fewer clicks than you actually received. We have resolved this delay and adjusted the number of billable clicks from all affected days in February.


That may be the same reason why we had two adjustments for February AdSense stats a week ago. Will there be another one for the last week of Feb.? It will be nice, won't be it?

Most of credits may have been made already, as I beleived.

I had the first 12 days of February previously recorded. Today comparing the same period, impressions are up 2.2%, clicks up 3.0%, earnings up 3.2%.

January's numbers remain unchanged.

Is everyone getting this email, or just a chosen few? It's not in my box.

I received it, too. More money is always good. ;)

I see an additional adjustment to the one that had been discussed earlier this month. Not a lot, but a few percent. Feb. ends up decent but not spectacular.

I got it and I'm not in the Fedex/UPS club.... yet! ;)

I'm long from Fedex, and I got it to one of the accounts I am contact person for.

This is an older account from August 2003.

On February 23 I got 500% the number of clicks with half the earnings as normal, and on February 26 I got 300% the clicks, with normal earnings.

No mail for me yet, but these two days are absolutely fantastic. My earnigs are twice as usual with same ammount of clicks. I am just wondering have they already start to credit these delayed clicks?

Yep, i received the email this morning (in Germany). However, my February income is (still) 20% below standard.

I got the email, but I couldn't see any dramatic improvement, though, as others have reported, yesterday (Feb 28) was a pretty decent day. My earnings for this month were down about 10-20% from my average earnings in past months. Not great, but not too alarming. I just hope that this month will be up again.

but i see no change in any amount at all.

I generate a couple thousand clicks per day, and the adjustment amounted to maybe 5 extra clicks per day... max. You may have not even noticed the adjustment since it appears to be miniscule.

Is everyone getting this email, or just a chosen few? It's not in my box.

With several hundred thousand impressions/day and a few thousand clicks/day.... and an adjustment of less than 5 clicks & $2 per day, it's highly likely that not everyone was affected.

Fedex is history, it's the UPS club now. I can confirm that members both in and out of the UPS club received this email.

We got email saying in past tense terms the credit was already applied to the acct for JANUARY. However, when I replied saying we did not see any credits and where are they they replied saying the future tense that next week it will be done. They also said the Feb credit will be done too. Very odd in the original wording.

so does that mean we will see added income to feb numbers? I hope so.
