The Google AdSense website is temporarily unavailable. Please try back later.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

Other parts of Google also down e.g., URL removal tool [services.google.com]

It is still down for me in Jakarta.

The small message:
Sorry, service is currently not available. Please try again later.

But..., now I have successfully login to GA.

I think this problem is intermittent...

Working fine here in Hong Kong but clicks are slightly lower than average. It should catch up at the end of the day.

Andrew, I am always ready for a big fat click dump!

Hey did you guys see where Khensu went? I haven't seen him in a while?

Okay... okay... thin click dump will do as well.

Heard from Khensu just the other day. He was sketchy about details but I think he's working on a humongous collaborative project with a certain search enGine!

CTR way down again today. About 40% below normal. This just started yesterday when they started having problems. Hoping for a click dump as well.

Some people are complaining on the adwords forum that there traffic has suddenly stopped sometime late yesterday.

For one of my clients adword accounts they should have received a couple of thousand clicks from the content network by this time of the day. They have received none so far but are still receiving clicks on google search etc..

It seems that the content network has been turned off even though it is still selected.

This might be a possible reason why people are seeing lower clicks/revenue for adsense. If google has somehow managed to mistakenly turned off adword advertisers content network ads.......

I only noticed it by complete fluke and I suspect more and more advetisers will start to notice it as the day goes on.

Page Impressions for yesterday reported were about normal. Clicks, Page CTR, Page eCPM and Earnings all were down 30-50%
Odd.

Yep looks like the whole content network got switched off about 3am.

"What was that?"

"What"

"My B-tt hit something and heard this click"

"I told you we shouldn't be doing this up on the desk"

"Well, everything looks ok"

When there are hitches like this there is usually a new announcement from Google imminent, a change of TOS, or a PR update [webmasterworld.com].

Something is definitely messed up - I haven't seen such low numbers in a long time.

Allow me to make some perhaps naive assumptions, (recognizing the danger of making assumptions about anything having to do with the internet).

In all probablility only a very few are experiencing diminution in CTRs, etc. I am, but I'm usually in any negatively affected minority. If this was widespread, then this thread would be several pages long.

Even if it is widespread, Google somehow will benefit from it at the expense of publishers.

If changes are in the works, it will not benefit publishers.

I'm not in the best of moods about Adsense right now, as you might gather.

I can log into my Adsense account, but for whatever reason none of my Google Ads are showing up on my site, this I can't get any clicks. What's up with that?

The thing that ticks me off is that I was actually starting to make some money off of the ads and then is goes down for the past two days.
