I am seeing that the data is at least 2-3 hours behind because my traffic is otherwise normal. Can anyone else please check and confirm?

Mine were stuck for a solid 3 hours but just took one step forward.

I am seeing about a 4 hour delay in pageviews beyond the normal delay as well.

Some of my impressions are way low. They should be more careful not to scare people like that. At first I thought I'd lost half my traffic.

Yep, everything is updated except for impressions... sure makes the eCPM look good!

I have one (cse search) channel that says 11 clicks 0 queries. Nothing to worry about though - definitely a lag going on...

Mine haven't changed in at least five hours.

Yeah same here, impressions way low. eCPM looks spectacular though! (hee hee...) Takes me back to the summer of 2006... Aaaaahhh, those were the days..

Google should let us know when stats aren't accurate or delayed.

Stuck impressions here too.

I was just checking a channel about some recent improvements and saw the CTR and eCPM - and for a moment got excited that I have either screwed things up or came up with a very efficient way to improve things :-D

Agree with potentialgeek. Wouldn't it be nice if Google simply said on the dashboard "Data last updated at XYZ hours?"

Whew! I'm glad to see it's not just me. I'm seeing low impressions as well. I thought maybe February was off to a bad start.

Stats are stuck 3-4hrs below. Prob. new harsher smartpricing is being rolled out ;)

It goes like this:

1) Oh no, my site is being attacked by click fraud, I hope I don't get banned;

2) Should I send Google a note saying something strange is going on: 'Today the CTR is too high but I don't know why';

3) Let me check my site to see if there's something wrong with it or if there's a new advertiser with ads that will get extreme clicks;

4) Wait, Google's messed up stats before, and sometimes they lag;

5) Let me check Webmaster World to see if anyone else is seeing the same thing; and,

6) Ah, panic over. It's just another Googleplex Brainfart.

Yeah, my eCPM is 50% higher than normal. Looks like impressions are behind.

A result of the cut cables with servers unable to update?

Are you referring to the cut cables in the Middle East? I doubt if that problem would affect servers updating over here.

Hilarious, potentialgeek!

I'm personally trying to shorten the reaction time between #1 and #6... :o)

Wouldn't that be almost every other day?

Wouldn't it be nice if Google simply said on the dashboard "Data last updated at XYZ hours?"

What if they screwed up and it read "Data last updated at 1215 hours, 38 April 1866"

Prob. new harsher smartpricing is being rolled out

shhhh. Don't give them ideas!

(Sorry for the rant)

This is really getting annoying: Ever-falling ecpm, unreliable reporting, delayed reports, missing channel data.

Maybe now that Microsoft bought Yahoo, they will finally force them as a competitor to get their act together .

I am doing business with Google, moving tens of thousands of dollars a month. I do not care if it's peanuts for them, but I get a better treatment/customer service from ATT for my home DSL contract, where the typical amounts in question are $70/mo.

Google is becoming one of the worst monopolies out there, the "do not do evil" was just for the first few years while the owners were becoming billionaires, now they just do not care.

Just how much of your revenue are you willing to give up so Google can hire more customer service representatives?

10% if they are willing to provide human optimization advice, or disclose details that make choosing advertisers/real optimization possible.
