Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Hopefully Adwords publishers don't start pausing their campaigns because they can't see progress in real time...that could seriously effect income.
Ads are showing - it is just wondering if the stats are being recorded properly.
Google is not "bad" - they are just having technical difficulties (tell me someone who hasn't :) The irritant is that they don't have manners enough to let us know. We have to visit a webmaster forum where everyone compairs notes to "guess" what could be wrong. Even though it says 24 hours to update, everyone who uses the program KNOWS it doesn't usually take that long, so they should put us at easy BEFORE people start noticing reports aren't updating regularly. They would save themselves email overloads, phone calls (they don't want) and makE fixing the problem a lot less stressful for everyone!
Give me a break, an email or even a message on the sign in screen should be in place....COMMON SENSE!
Phew....rant over...I feel better now.
I was going to come here and start a flaming thread about AdLinks and how it ruined me, only to find that my adding of AdLinks only coincided with the halt in the AdSense stats.
My AdSense are back now, thank God! I was terribly worried and felt so bad yesternight :)
As for the Google Accelerator (or as someone suggested in the AdWords forum Decelerator), I've given it a try to keep me busy from checking my stats :D ... and here is how it went on ..
I'm glad now that the stats are back. I hope they do come back for all of you.
Update: Though my stats are back, but they still don't seem very correct. The monthly view shows different numbers from a 1 day view (a monthly view shows more impression clicks, and earnings)! Seems still some stuff needs to be sorted out by Google.

Interestingly enough, yesterday was the biggest revenue day I've had in a while. Not that that's saying much since it was only a bit over $1. (My largest most visited site, about 1,000 or so visits a day, covers a very poor-paying topic - I started it in 1998 so advertising was the last thing in my mind.)
