I really like the new format of announcements where you also mention the time in different geographic regions.

Yes I would have to agree about being grateful that you mentioned the different time zones (although I don't know how I'm going to be able to handle my adsense "fix" until the site is back up again)

This is the perfect day for MFA - JUNK sites to sneak onto your site and run ads... and you can't do anything about it.

That's the pattern. Less for you means more for G!

I'm assuming a massive click dump is coming otherwise there will be riots in the streets.

OK, maybe just a small one man uprising on my street...

This notice was truly helpful. I just came in to see if there was a reason that reporting was behind/earnings were seriously down this morning and this totally allayed my concern. Thanks

Hobbs: ditto, LOL

I'm still missing about 12 hours' worth of stats... how does one see a click dump "in progress"?

A click dump refers to seeing a higher than normal increase in stats in a short period of time.

I don't think it's reasonable to expect that your stats are 12 hours behind when the system was down for under 4 hours. Saturday is the slowest day of the week for Internet activity.

phew!
Glad I am not the only one. I've just checked my stats now we are back online and I am about 100 clicks down for this time of day. I sure hope some kind of click dump is going to happen.

My EPC is pretty normal but my eCPM is high. It appears that eCPM is skewed because I don't think Impressions are up to date. Mine are abnormally low and CTR is high.

It's a Google Adsense Impression Reporting Delay(TM).

(May also be a delay in clicks too.)

It's post-maintenance delays. In a few hours it could be caught up again.

Not that it matters now, but 10 AM to 2 PM PDT on Saturday is 1 PM to 5 PM EST Saturday, not 4 AM to 8 AM Sunday.

Or did I miss something?

According to Analytics we're having one of our best Saturdays ever. I'm hoping Adsense is still running behind.

I thought the same thing when I read it yesterday so I looked it up. There are actually three different time zones that use the abbreviation EST. They are referring to one in Australia. Note that they used EST rather than EDT which would have been 1 PM to 5 PM EDT.

I was on Saturday underway. Coming home, the maintenance and after this, I got a shock.

I had a feeling like a pilot just seeing that 2 of 4 engines are buring. For luck, today in the morning, I had a normal Satuday statistic.
