Is it just me or is AdSense down?

Adsense is down in PA as of about 120 pm. Blogger seems to be down, at least for one of the sites I checked.

Usually "AdsenseAdvisor" posts a warning when a maintenance outage is scheduled. But I have not seen him post in a long time now.

Yeah, ASA has been notably missing from here again. Especially after the AdSense terms change when a bunch of us were begging for clarification.

Sad, really.

AdWordsAdvisor did post a note about some downtime for today. That often means AdSense stats will be unavailable too. I'm guessing that's it.

It's amazing how often Adsense is down. I don't know of any other website like it

Yeah,

Adsense, Blogger, etc all down, and has been for a while, without any prior notices. Amazingly and mind-blowingly enough, Google.com still works, this is pretty unheard of ;-D

And why would G care, it's just a couple of thrillion billion business for them ;-D

If they would notify about these sort of things, that would make people happy and praise G, but instead G has chosen the path which always causes major concert on different forums, and millions of people will hate G and bash them without mercy for the rest of their life. Maybe G has a bigger plan with their public relatons, but I'm not seeing it. Simply notifying people with message "we'll do maintenance" would show that they have some sort of control over what is happening.

I'm betting that this """maintenance""" will cause them to do another (emergency) """maintenance""" during the week - as it way too often is case with unannounced adsense """maintenances""". :-D

It should be a Sticky. (It was in the past.)

P.S. Generally speaking, if you can't access on Saturday afternoons (EST), assume it's regular maintenance. It's the only time I recall G doing reg. maintenance and rarely a month goes by without Sat pm maintenance. Sometimes it's every week or two weeks.

Oh, I assumed that it was regular maintenance, but without a hint of it from ASA (By the way, said it was AdWordsAdvisor (AWA) who mentioned it not ASA.

Yup, but this happens often enough that keeping an eye on the AdWords forum for such notes is a good idea.

Or maybe they're programming another "glitch" into the cost-per-click algorithm.

Given his/her "performance" around here, I don't see how that could be worse. AWA seems to do a decent job, but ASA?

ASA profile shows
"Last Post:Jan 11, 2008"

Its only 2 months ago, ASA is probably taking a short holiday ;)

Ha ha.. I like that one. He was absorbed into the machine.

RIP ASA because we all know the machine never spits anything back out. It's like a black hole, sucking everything in.

I guess I better go to bed...

Hi all,

AdSense was indeed down for maintenance on Sunday. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused you, and will make every effort not to carry out maintenance again without first notifying you here.

I understand that you have noticed the old ASA has not been around. As I have just posted ( [webmasterworld.com...] ), I am the new ASA here, and am really looking forward to supporting you.
