Working fine for me in the UK, but I noticed a few adsensers have been complaining in the AS forum about problems with pages loading.

So could be a portion of their network is down or being upgraded.

I can't get to google search, or adsense. I can't see adsense ads on any pages anywhere, nor can I login to adwords. I was able to get to each once this morning about 20 minutes ago after an hour of nothing, now back to being unable to access anything.

It seems to be very sporadic and dependant on location as 2 of our other offices nearby on differnet networks are seeing everything normally.. When I was able to log in to adsense, impressions and CTR's seemed fairly normal for this time of day.

Actually this may be, at least partially, a cookie issue on google's end.. if I clear cookies, I can get to google.com but it hangs when performing a search, if I clear cookies again, I can do a search and get results, but can't do another search, if I clear cookies again, I can once again do another search. This seems to be repeatable at least on google search.

I have this problem when I log into Google webmasters - have done for months but assumed it was my PC - though its only Google I have the problem with.

I can also say that Analytics stats are stuck at 9am this morning for me. They should be at 2pm by now based on the last month of using it.

So I would say something is going on.

I've been unable to access Google or see AdSense on pages for the past few hours. Coincidentally I can't see any ads served by doubleclick.net either.

On a hunch, I downloaded a trial version of anonymizer and turned it on... I can get Google just fine. Turn it off and can't access the sites anymore. Could the network be blocked for some reason?

here near Boston, I can't get google.com or adwords to load - but I can get google.ca just fine.

Also can't click on any adwords ads in google.ca.

also noticing when I load pages with google analytics on them, they seem noticeably slower, with the browser message bar displaying "waiting for google-analytics.com...".

<online datacenter tool> working fine - no substantial mismatches in the few datacenters I checked out.

With <the online datacenter tool> the results I saw (page count, ranking) are eerily close. Anyone else having a fair size PageRank fluctuation (between 0-5- and 7) too? Even Google's own PR goes between 0 and 8, then 10. Strange goings on I must say. Anyone figure out a workaround to log into Gmail?

Cleared my cookies and I was able to get to the Google homepage (not personalized) but could not log into Gmail, or conduct any searches.

I haven't tried on IE7 yet, only in FF.

Your link is on hold :)

This discussion is temporarily on hold pending administrative review.
This simply means there was something about the post worth reviewing before public viewing.
It could also mean work is being performed on the thread or forum.

I was also in Boston area and until 5 PM everything was as reported earlier. However, all is normal now. I couldn't see any ads on any of my websites till 5 PM - but when I check the adsense stats, it is slightly better than most days. So either I am getting big jump in traffic or the problem was very localized to some computers. Weird though!

And here's some news:

Server Failure Knocks Some Google Users Off Line
Our good buddies at IDG News Service report that the failure of a DNS (domain name system) server at Comcast caused problems for some Web surfers in the northeast section of the U.S. today, making several Web sites, including Google, inaccessible.

The server failure caused connectivity problems for a "few hours," said Jeanne Russo, a Comcast spokeswoman. By late Tuesday, the broadband provider had rerouted traffic to other servers, she said.

Well, one thing I can also note is that I have no Google Analytics stats from 11am to 4pm yesterday. (UK).
