Is it just me, or is anyone else having problems getting the Top Search Queries report on AdSense for Search to work? I'm getting around 500 searches per day these days, and whenever I try to run that report, be it for the month or just for the previous day, it either just hangs and hangs or else produces some kind of an error message. It used to work for me just fine before my traffic spiked, and now I'm wondering if I'm overloading it.

Same here. I didn't realize there was a problem. I tried it a couple of times and I just figured it was taking too long, so I lost interest and closed it. LOL, I had chalked it up to A.D.D.

i could show you how to have your own search box and run your own top search report but it probably wouldn't be worth the trouble for that number of searches unless you have a phenominal ctr and your searchers are searching for high paying keywords

maybe the problem will get fixed plenty soon, if not and you want to explore alternatives, let me know

Of course I can do my own search and mine the queries that way; I use AdSense for Search because on some sites it outperforms AdSense for Content, and I make good money from it. (And yes, the CTR and eCPM from search is extremely high) I just want to get a report of the top queries is all - that report being offered as available in my AdSense console.

Not for me. I just ran it for the first four days of the month, and it says "There were no queries from your site during this date range." Whereas, when I run the report with aggregate data selected, for the first four days of the month, I show 3604 searches and 175 clicks. Those people must have been searching for *something*...

Maybe I broke it.

Strange.

The only problem I'm having is running the "Top Queries" report for searches. It's really slow, but eventually shows results.

The other three, pre-formatted searches run fine.

I can't get any "top queries" results after June, it keeps insisting that there were no queries at all.

The odd thing is, towards the end of June it didn't work either, but back then there would be an error message saying Google was working on the problem.

Now there's not even an error message, just the same blank no queries page.
