Hi everyone-

I just wanted to give you a few days' notice that we have regular AdSense system maintenance scheduled for Saturday, August 26, at 10:00am PDT. It should last about four hours.

As you know, even if you aren't able to access your account during this time, your Google ads will show normally and all clicks and impressions will be recorded as usual.

Thanks for your patience!
-ASA

I am seeing this right now (Wednesday Aug 23, 17:34 CDT)
System unavailable

Our system is temporarily unavailable during system maintenance. Please try again later. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Saturday already? must be... I'm clocking out!

Hope this is somthing good, like a MFA/spam filter.

My filter is totally jammed and I am starting to get nervous. The bugs will be eating my flesh soon.

Ahh, every quality publishers dream..........could it happen?...............no not likely

My filter is totally jammed and I am starting to get nervous. The bugs will be eating my flesh soon.

My filter is always jammed with domains, yet it doesn't contain the domain of a single competitor. For every 200 domains in my filter there are far many more domains that I have recorded but cannot include because of the filter's limitations.

Maintenance downtime is no problem for me. I check my stats twice a day. Once when I first get up in the early am, and the second time right before I go to sleep in the late pm.

BTW - I live in the same timezone as Google.

I'm addicted to watching my stats... fortunately, the maintenance is usually around 2am here when I'm dreaming of watching my Adsense stats...

Dreaming of watching stats?

Next you'll have killer MFA bugs attacking you and wake up in a cold sweat praying for a can of Raid.

no... in dreamland:
:) all clicks pay a minimum of $20
:) you get to place arrows that say " click here".
:) the google toolbar has options to only show ads with minimum $10 pay-out.
:) you're allowed to click 20 times on your own ads per day. since you know which ads pay the highest, ooooo...
:) if you don't reach a minimum of $10K a month, Google will subsidize the balance.
:) Google will randomly select 1000 websites a day and place them at #1 on the serps with a guarantee of 20,000 clicks at US10 each.
:) If your site is not selected for the above in a month, you can fill in a form and request for it. Action will be taken within 24 hours.

:) :)
see what watching Adsense stats every 3 hours does to guy?

Hi,

I think you should lower your drug dose or switch to downers: all those things on your wish-list are making my eyes cross and my stomach turn inside-out (as an AW user)! %-#

Still, there's always the Lottery!

Do we have a name for this maintenance yet?

I vote for maintenance "Dreamland" (TM by andrewshim).

I hope it's a good one.

So far today my CTR - with no changes on the sites - has dropped by a factor of 3.

It may be because my sites are being swarmed by Ringtone ads right now.

Or it could be that other people are seeing what I just saw a momement ago, an ad in Italian ... and it didn't really look all that contextual to me... well, Ok, I would have a better idea about that if I could read Italian... or if I had even a single Italian phrase anywhere on my sites

*fume* (like a flame but nicer)

Dreamland it is.

I think were going to get the 80MM gun on this one. If not, I will be totally astounded.

Move 1 - QS and force as many MFAs out or over to the content network

Move 2 - Give the publishers the big gun and have them shoot down the rest.

This keeps the egg off their face and we will gain great satisfaction by taking them down.

Yes, get out your body armor and the face paint.

I can hear "Hymn of the Valkyries" playing already and the deafening chopper blades wurring over my head.

Rather than some major change, this seems much more likely to be the usual (i.e., every single month) maintenance that occurs right around the time that payments for the previous month are posted.

I love that these outages due to maintenance occur during my normal sleep hours. I never notice them. :)

How about something relatively small such as a competitive ad filter that holds more than 200 urls
