Yeah the Adsense site finally loaded but nothing past the top part is showing up.

Yeah, that is what happened to me on IE, then I went to load it on AOL's browser and it came up fine. Then went back to refresh it on IE and it came up. Very strange!

aww crap.. i don't wanna hear or see this, i was on track for a record breaking day :(

i'm in NC, using firefox, only seeing top part of adsense, but advanced reports works to get info.

search and froogle has been working for me all evening though, as I have been researching buying an hp color laser, trying to pinch as many pennies as I can.

WolfLover: Yes, that happened to me too, but I think it's just because the ads are up and down now, as is the G homepage.

I've just confirmed, at least for my sites, the reason the page hangs when Adsense is down is because my affected pages are surrounded by one big table (to control page width). As a test, I just removed a page's surrounding table, and even though the ad was still dead, the page loaded. This is why the symptoms are different in different browsers, each browser handles a table that refuses to load completely in different ways.

I guess it's time to change over my sites to do it with CSS instead of big tables...

They could of ran out of "green power" again due to the heat.

They need to run some server clusters farther outside of their current realm.

The midwest has a surplus of wind power that is offline.

California isn't short of power at this time (nor anytime today).

Well better now than in the middle of the day.

If I am going to take a hit it may as well be at night.

Getting into Google okay but the overview is giving me lower numbers than the reports page.

Baaad, most pageviews I have had in a month of Sundays and didn't get all of them counted...at least according to my stats program. :(

Ann

Oh Yeah,

I had a 22 cent search credit hanging there all day (only one click) and I noticed that I had a second click that didn't pan out and they cut my 22 cents down to 11 cents! What gives?

Well, if MySpave was affected this badly it seems likely that Google could also be affected in the area:

"Due to the record-breaking heat in Los Angeles over the weekend, the area where MySpace's servers are stored had massive power outages," a MySpace spokeswoman said. "The backup generators failed. With power resumed, the network is now up and running."

The outage at West Hollywood, Calif.-based MySpace was just one consequence of the power failures that swept through California after a week of record-breaking temperatures. The Los Angeles Times estimated that 175,000 homes and businesses lost electricity over the weekend in the Los Angeles area. Power outages were also reported in the San Francisco Bay Area and San Diego.

We can't do anything about what Google decides to do. We exist as their whim.

That was over the weekend. To the best of my knowledge, there have been no rolling blackouts our outages in Cali over the last two days.

Of course, if there is one happening now, I wouldn't know (especially with Gnews down).

Take a look through your custom channels to see what happened.;)
Sorry, couldn't resist.

Had poor earnings when I went to bed last night, and hadn't improved overnight. I'm hoping that this was due to the glitch. I was doing so well since QS otherwise.

I was having some problems reaching G using a path involving NTT -> Qwest but none using nlayer.net.

Man, sites are locked up all over the net. It gives you a good idea of how many sites actually use AdSense.

It's funny, because I just realized that I put all my eggs in one basket -- all my sites have AdSense. I removed the AdSense code from the biggest site, but it would be way too much work to comment out all that code. I just hope Google will get this fixed before tomorrow morning.

It would be nice if we got some official word on this from Google.

Just woke up from being asleep for about 10 hours.
Looks like sleeping was the right thing to do.
BTW, Adsense login is fine here in Holland...

Adwords is loading intermittently for the several sites I have served from Massachusetts, sometimes hanging up the page indefinitely. Analytics code is also stopping page loads. This is a real mess.

here in Los Angeles it is up and down during the last 5-6 hours: it works for 10 minutes, then again down for half an hour. Currently it is down. BTW, yes, it is hot like hell over here, but we didn't have any power outages recently, last week it was much worse. don't think our heat wave is causing it.

This is still happenning at 5:30 am pacific time Thursday morning. Intermittantly no ads, and intermittantly no Google home page.

Why is there nothing on any of the news sites about this? Why are we the only Google subforum on WW talking about it?

Extremely low eCPM here, could be because of this?

This has been hapening for me for the last 7hrs that I know of here in California. Ive looked and looked and have found news of this only here and a couple of mostly ignored posts on digg. I find it amazing that it's not being dicussed more. What the heck is going on?

Gotta agree with you there, Hankhour. This problem started for me somewhere in the late evening. It worked again for a while, but then broke again. I had been switching all my ad displays to Yahoo's ads, until Google shows to be a bit more stable. I tend to get a little les revenue from Yahoo, but at least I GET revenue. I totally agree that I'm amazed I don't see it being discussed more (even something noted on slashdot). I'm about to message Google about it now. This is truly unsettling. When they go down, my site doesn't even load properly (browser trying to finish the "draw"). :(

Im in Mexico and since yesterday I cant access to Google, at the moment I still cant access and all websites with Adsense take an eternity to load, and when they do, they do it without the ads.
