Anyone else have a similar experience?

  • Jul-30-2008: connected AdSense account to YouTube account and created Video Unit ads. Placed code generated on fairly busy page. Everything seemed to work as documented except for stats on impressions, earnings, etc.

  • Sep-05-2008: Contacted Google support about the continued absence of any Video Units stats and received a polite canned reply. "Please note that it will take 60-90 days since linking your YouTube and AdSense accounts before you will see statistics in your AdSense account."

  • Oct-21-2008: 90 days have passed. Contacted Google support again. Received a different canned response. "forwarding your issue to our YouTube team who will be able to address your issue."

    That was over a month ago with no further results or contact. Presumably the "YouTube team" has been working around the clock on this, possibly even through the holidays. It must be a tough problem.

    Are there any other AdSense publishers out there who have managed to successfully work through this process? If so, please post your experiences here. Perhaps if I forward them to the "YouTube team" it will help them resolve it.

    Good to know. I added video unit recently but can't figure out how to see what's going on with it?

    The procedure to even be able to get the video unit code seemed overly clunky and complex, and there are no hints about where I would see stats for video unit, even after the required 2-3 months have passed.

    Has anyone seen this type of stat (video unit not video ad), and if so, how do you get a report on earnings?
