For me personally, everything's running how it should be now. Tuesday's eCPM was really bad but no use whining about what can't be changed. Also, I don't believe a click dump is coming for anyone hoping for one.

That depends on whom you wish to believe?

G says it's over, my metrics say it isn't!

I don't know what happened, Monday was good, yesterday good traffic for me, average or better and not a single click. Yes it has happened before but... It is just like fishing.... spend your time, your money and try to hook a click or even better a big click. I, like some others here have a hard time settling down and just going with the flow. Guess we just need to rela#*$!#*$!xx.

We can't change anything by complaining...everyone should just let it go and hope it doesn't happen again anytime soon.

I came here just to make sure it wasn't ONLY me... seems to be a major lag as of 3:40 pm EST. First time I checked stats all day and I was worried. About 1/2 what I should be for a normal Thursday.

All normal here.

I propose a few new rules.

1) Those who only have 2 clicks in a day are not allowed to report their stats are lagging.

2) Those who have only checked their stats for the first time for the day are not allowed to report their stats are lagging.

ASA, thanks for the known issues page. I think that is helpful, although I'm sure the drama will continue here. Best of both worlds!

Yep, that's what I'm seeing too, EPC is excellent though:-)

I hope the click dump occurs befre I go out for a beer so that I know how much I have to spend!

From the UK, all looks OK now, stats are exactly what I would expect.

I would be interested to know if the outage affected big and small alike.

My sites earn me a living wage, my stats were affected. Were we all affected with lagging stats? Were any of us notified early on that there was a problem.

If we are all affected equally, big, middle and low earners then the outage beggars belief. But maybe the top earners had special attention. I can't get my head round the fact that possibly Google treated all publishers (major players in their major income stream) the same.

Before I started this internet publishing business, I worked in the commercial computer industry for 20 years. IBM, Cable and Wireless, ABN, The Post Office, Nationwide etc, all were the same. If there was an outage the first step was to contact the users and explain what was happening and how it was being dealt with. It made sense, the users would find out in the end. Was I living in a dream world?

Since delay in reports something strange.

Record number of impressions in account since ever, CTR and ECPM lowest i ever had.
Revenue is the lowest since 2007.

next day
normal impressions, crt and ecpm too low

today
CRT and ecpm drop again i never saw so lowest.

ads are not related with content, not all, but many

site have more then 30000 impression day and is not English

server logs normal, no bots in excess, nothing not normal.

No changes in site in last 3 weeks, only more content

Anyone experience something like this.

Ditto, ditto, ditto...

I earned less on a normal Thursday than a Saturday or Sunday, EPC was fine, no problem there.

Compared to my last couple of months average my CTR was almost -34% and my eCPM nearly -22%.

Apart from January 1st and 6th I easily has my lowest number of clicks all year at -28.5% to the year's average.

This is no coincidence, this is an almighty fubar for some of us (again), and leads me to wonder just how much in control of their reporting systems they actually are when things go haywire?

Just remind me when you're down for no explicable reason whatsoever except G having several days of total fubar!

Is the Search data populating o.k.? I seem to have many searches but no clicks. This is unusual. I will give it another couple of days before I worry though..

Fingers crossed, early metrics for today for me look as though they are returning to normal, no click dump unfortunately therefore the past couple of days will have to be written off as a GG...Google Glitch, again!

Ditto!

When the stats hit the fan, the recovery period almost feels like smartpricing was re-booted/set and takes a few days to adjust

For one of my channel:

Today: clicks~=140 for same number of impression
Yesterday: clicks~=180 for same number of impression
The delay day: clicks~=325 for same number of impression

Average in may between 1st and 6th: 280 clicks
Average in April: 305 clicks

Always with around the same number of impression.

This tell me that the quality of the ads that appear on my webpages are not as good after the "crash".

It also appear that I make less $ per click.

Thursday was a great day for my site. I guess Google gave me some of those missing clicks, or something.

But today there's definitely a lag again in click reporting, though impressions are being updated to some extent.

This is becoming a regular occurrence...I'm on a downer, you're on an upper, and today you're seeing a lag and I'm reporting "normal".

Only they know for how many servers they're trying to consolidate metrics however it seems fairly obvious to me that they are not synchronising and, looking at my stats, losing valid data.

A couple of days of not too much data loss I can tolerate, continued data loss which would be clearly evident when compared against longer term metrics, then I would become very concerned.

You can't comapre a 30 day average with that of a 5 day average that included a G problem...would you all wait a little while before complaining?

StoutFiles ... people are trying to see if there is still a problem.

My analysis shows that even tho the Google System is normal, it may have affected people accounts. In my case, It affected it in two ways: less click and lower $ per click.

It could be coincidence ... but I never had a day of 180 clicks in the last 3 months (with about the same amount of pageview). (is 3 months comparison long enough?)

it may have affected people accounts

I'm not debating that. It DID affect people's accounts...my CPM was insanely low. But let's see if Google gets everything squared away and things go back to normal for the next few weeks.

If they do, then we can contribute the bad stats to the crash and go "oh well".

If they don't, then we can all start wondering what's going on. Things aren't 100% fixed it seems but I'm sure Google's doing their best with fixing it right now.
