May 6th closed as a average day

Still not closed, I see still more impressions for Tuesday, only the clicks and the earnings remain at the same.

So eCPM is now 30% below average.

Here in the German speaking area, it's after long time cold and rainy weather the first days of spring.

The Tuesday impressions are more like a Friday here.

I have the opposite, the hotter it gets, the busier my site gets.

I now have wednesday impressions.

>Still not closed, I see still more impressions

Yes, I'm watching corrections happening:

for May 6th Impressions CTR & eCPM are catching up
but Zero clicks & Zero earnings incrementing
Which is why I concluded the day's earnings are done.

for May 7th the opposite: Only clicks & earnings reported
while eCPM, CTR & Impressions are still Zero

They're pacing in the data in gradually, looks like their infrastructure cannot handle one full dump like the good old days, too many publishers now.

Even though I have a super quick broadband connection on Tuesday I had a torrid time uploading to my own server and connections to many SERPs results' sites were taking much longer than usual.

From this morning's metrics I see that 6 of my sites had click attacks and I know from some e-mails I have had that others had a similar issue.

My CTR looks great however my EPC is terrible however after deducting the extra clicks, all is "normal":-)

Let's hope that they resolved their, and our, problems.

> click attacks

Well, for few days now I'm struggling with a post spam botnet coming from all over but mostly China, Brazil and Russia, it hikes site page impressions and server load, but never AdSense ad impressions.

My data's a little off as well...maybe everything didn't save properly like they said. No use crying about it though; best to just forget about yesterday and hope that today and future days are error free.

It appears that since yesterdays reporting delay, AdSense now reports in (near?) real time rather than caching the query results and only refreshing stats every hour or so.

If this is a permanent change, it is a welcome one. It appears that now, the results update every few minutes rather than every hour or so.

Where are you? I was thinking that there appeared to be a delay again!

I am in USA - east coast.

My analysis may have been premature. I logged in this a.m. and hit refresh after a few minutes. The stats updated to a small degree which led me to believe that Google was switching to more frequent updating.

Watching it now, it is not updating and I may have logged in shortly before what the members here call a push. (I don't think it's a push - rather, it's a clearing of the cached query data).

On another note...

Why do the people here get so uptight about delays in reporting measured in hours or days?

Google only pays once per month. Are you afraid that Google is going to lose your data and/or not pay you?

Do the members here just sit at their desks and watch their adsense earnings all day? Go outside and get some fresh air. Enjoy the freedom that the internet biz affords you.

If you owned a store and your credit card machine stopped working, would you wait hours/days before trying to figure out what was going on?

I have owned a business where the credit cards couldn't be processed from time to time. It happens. You just keep taking orders and wait for the problem to be resolved - then process your charges.

That's exactly my point.

That's a little too passive for me; when my credit card machine breaks, or my upstream connection cuts off the machines hosting my clients' 500 websites leaving them down, or my telephones go out - I'm all over it until I find out what and where the problems are, and they get fixed.

If your way works for you, great. It's not everyone's way.

We don't get uptight, we're just checking we've done nothing wrong/been banned/disconnected/lost all our SERPs/any of a hundred things:-)

Even after 4 years I am still am amazed to watch earnings come in every day without directly interacting with my visitors. It's also intriguing to watch new site sections become popular and earn more whilst experimenting with new ideas.

There are loads of reasons however I guess one of the best would be that a lot of like-minded folk find this forum their office water cooler/smoke room possibly?

Also keep in mind that if AdSense falls, ad inventory can be switched immediately to other networks, it all depends on your sites and how much you're making, some can merrily skip around in fresh air while issues get fixed, others have to immediately take action.

Those are bad examples. They all have a direct effect on your income and/or quality of service. This didn't. Granted, I was a little nervous when the problem first appeared, but once I realized ads were still running then I wasn't nearly as concerned.

However that is precisely why publishers are concerned when ads are running and there is no income, they need to find out if they're the only one suffering or whether it is a general condition.

One must know whether or not he can affect change. I think it is fairly evident that all the complaining and/or whining in the world wouldn't make Google correct an issue any faster.

It's not about correcting the issue faster, it's about handling communication better. Would this thread be this long if there was a message in the AdSense Message Center alerting us? Being a little proactive goes a long way.
