www.google.com and news.google.com are both completely unavailable for me via AT&T in San Francisco--"server not found"--and have been so for an hour. Google Analytics is responding with long delays.

All OK in the UK.

Try direct access using some known IP addresses, or the new GFE datacentre [webmasterworld.com] domain names.

My web host based in Californa (dreamhost) had some power issues last night. All my websites were down for 30min-1 hour. Everything works now but this doesn't come as a surprise.

I was having the problem from India. Now it is fine, but websites stats are very low.

I've tried using a couple of IP's and they are going up and down also. That would rule out the idea of any DNS problems I would presume

Could be coordinated DOS attacks. I can access Google just fine, but my other adserver for banners and other display ads, ValueClick Media (FastClick), is completely down. Ads won't serve, admin interface is busted too.

Since I have not been very happy with VC since they bought out Fastclick last September, I am in the process of switching over to Casale Media, the best IMO for display ads.

You know, when Al Gore invented the Internet, he warned that this could happen as a result of global warming.

Some people have never heard of "relax, go out and get a coffee." Works wonder when Google goes down. There ain't no point blaming them or saying they should be regulated because "they are the Internet." If your business model is based on Google alone, then you need to re-think that business model, not blame Google.

Harry: I relaxed and went out and got a cup of coffee at 8:00 PM Pacific time last night, assuming all would be well soon. It's now more than 12 hours later and the problem is still happening.

It appears itís only a west coast problem. Iíve tried various proxys located in other areas and all seems fine. Wish it would get fixed because people here are arriving at work and will be surfing away soon.

Maybe I spoke too soon. Google admin interface will not show "overview". Other than that, ads are displaying on my site and other parts of the admin int are working OK.

FastClick/ValueClick still down for the count since at least an hour ago.

You'd think Google having a major outage would be news. But so far I haven't seen anything in the media.

My adsense sites are taking forever to load on a T1

Google down as well. Its been like this since last night.

I am located about an hour south of Mountain View.

when they are down, the Internet is practically unusable. Ridiculous.

Well now I know that I need sites with more than just adsense. This pushes me to build on some of my affiliate site ideas.

[humour]So if you go now, you should have it fixed for us/them by lunch time ;)

Oh and while you're there try to sort out the other search problems were having with them too, thanks in advance, say when its done ;)[/humour]

On a serious note, stats all seem "ok" so far today, admin facility is sloooow/not happening but ads have been showing at normal speeds for me, on my sites and others

I am located about an hour south of Mountain View

She'll pick you up on the way!

Guys, can anyone test these in IE7-beta and let us all know whether sites hang just as in IE6, or load eventually, like in FireFox?
