I'm worried that there is no "Are the stats stuck" post...

Should I be? I think they have to be stuck today... or very behind.

Does anyone else seem to have stats that are stuck? I usually expect to see a thread like this when they are... and I'm worried I'm in for a very low day. Sundays are usually fine for me!

Stats are not stuck as far as I can see.

However, there has been an Adwords pricing structure change which everyone in the Adwords forum is going mad about - unreasonably hihg prices, people pausing their campaigns for the time being etc.

I think so basically we have a lot less relevant ads or lower paying ads today.

Just my two cents.

They appear to be stuck here too. At least for a couple of hours, but I don't check every 10 minutes. I DON'T! Stop staring at me like that. STOP IT! ;-)

Mine are stuck. I had checked them about 90 minutes ago and they haven't changed since then. Ads are running just fine on my sites.

My stats look fine so far today.

But sometimes when stats are a little slow you can get a more current total by checking:

aggregate > all time

My CPM today is the lowest of the month. I hope there's something stuck over at the Googleplex.

I just came back from a three day trip this afternoon and was a bit disappointed when I saw my earnings. Thursday and Friday were a bit below average while Saturday was pretty bad.

Mine were terrible yesterday, but it coincided with a style update i did yesterday. So, i redid the style today again, and things are picking up.

So, too many variables for me to know whether i have gone and upset my own earnings or other factors are involved.

eek - I just checked in on my stats for the first time today (after 22:00 must be a record) and my stats appear down by approx 75% earningswise - impressions ok but a combination of low CTR and low EPC. Stats delay doesn't account for the fact that when I look at the best performing channel the ads have changed and (although targetted for the keywords) a low number of extremely off-topic ads are showing (i.e only 2 in a 4 ad space). Interestingly the higher paying ads from that channel are showing on a distantly related channel. I haven't change any of this recently so it looks as though targetting seems a bit screwy on my best performing channels at the moment - I can see logically how this could be related to both of the recent changes. I've bumped these new ads into my ad filter to see if I can shake things up a bit.

(AdWords)people pausing their campaigns for the time being

Okay... that is a great explanation for the lower earnings... but a scary one! I had to pause my campaign though, due to the low stats today... so there is a domino effect. I was a little scared to keep spending money myself!

Ken -- thanks for the laugh. I needed to know I wasn't just being stupid. ;-)

I FEEEEEEL the love! HAHA

jenkers - sit tight!

Read through this thread:

[webmasterworld.com...]

New stuff is filtering through, don't change a thing for at least a couple of days since you will not know whether it has had any effect or not. I have already been through this and stats have come back to "normal".

I can tell you, I was extremely concerned at the time since nothing from Adsense married up with my stats.

thanks Opti. I'll wait and see what happens. Hopefully things will shift in a more normal direction today.

no such luck here unfortunately - stats also haven't updated since 2200 last night. Oh well - lets see what today brings.

Mine are updating, but the weekend was my worst weekend for a long time.

Maybe it's the new adwords rollout killing the little guy (just over 1200 page impressions a day for me).

my earnings seem to be right back on normal levels today (Monday) - dunno what happened over the weekend but it knocked me for 6. Everyone else get the turnaround?

I am still hoping for a click dump today. Normally I have a 10%+ CTR but today not even 1%. Ads seem a bit off target as a whole for some reason. I hope that's the problem and that targeting will get back in line soon.

My CTR rate an earnings today are about 30% or normal. Something seems to be going on.

My impressions (probably related to a problem I mentioned in another thread- no ads of even PSAs displayed for a while intermittently) are down and at loggerheads with my site stats data, and CTR is slightly down too. 2 days back was my worst day ever this month, with revenue plummeting to 25 % of normal.

Looking at AdWords forum where advertisers have still not come to grips with the new system they are given, I guess the lower earnings will continue for a while.

Meanwhile, a click dump would be nice.. :-)

Well, I complained earlier of a bad weekend and bad Monday - it recovered slightly. It was a 'not so good' Monday in the end, about 30% down, so I am less ready to slash my wrists now.

I guess the introduction of the new system before the weekend caused problems for me over the weekend, but with the advertizers coming back on Monday, things have started to even out again.

I'm noticing a return to normalcy, too, but with a major adjustment that I hope is temporary. My top 2 advertisers are MIA. The balance to it all is that repeat visitors are seeing some new players, (but at lower EPC!)

Might be that alleviating the ad blindness with some fresh advertisers caused the income to balance out, but I'm nervous! Hope my bigger advertisers figure out how to work with the AdWords changes and jump back in SOON.
