Is Google Adsense Down Thursday May 14, 2009

Google ad serving

None of my pages seem to be loading which contain Google ads for the past few hours. Is this the case for others? Also CTR and eCPM are at a nadir (continuing the downward trend so often discussed recently).

I am also having problems logging into any Google site or using the search (check from multiple computers and from other contacts). No problem going to other sites.

Update (one page did load), but others still are only partially loading or are taking a very long time.

At least I don't think it should matter ;)

Back to the original thread, my stats are abysmal today.

Abysmal is a kind word for it. I'm going with rotten to the core for mine.

Same here - another rock bottom AdSense day.

Actually today turned out pretty good for me, considering the piss-poor weeks I've been having. Looks like I haven't been completely abandoned.

Hello!
Just got email from "Inside AdSense Team":

Probably it happened more times but just first time we got the official message :-(

"what was the message?"

Something along the lines of we had problems and ads weren't showing for a time.

so everything is supposedly fixed now?

Note: My earnings as of 9:00 A.M. (6:00 A.M. Google time) has already surpassed yesterday's earnings.

Well that's fun. After having a few days of my eCPM recovering, since yesterdays "fix" assuming there was one. My eCPM has just plumeted.

So confused.

well, at the same time, my earnings for yesterday were absolutely horrible, almost laughable

Earnings are really bad today.

I had one of my best days of the month yesterday, so go figure. For what it's worth, yesterday's Google Search outage reportedly affected the Northeastern United States, so sites that rely heavily on U.S. traffic (and especially on Google Search referrals in the northeastern U.S.) probably felt a bigger hit on their AdSense earnings than sites with a more global audience and/or less reliance on Google Search did.

I just wanted to let you know that we've posted about this on the blog. There was a temporary ad serving issue due that affected some publishers for about an hour yesterday. It has been resolved, but I'm truly sorry for any inconvenience.

affected publishers for an hour, I thought this has been happening for a month?

My sites are international (50% non-U.S.) and yesterday was the worst in years in terms of CTR and CPC and eCPM. Thank the gods we are well-diversified and the income streams are otherwise quite good. The EU shrunk 2.5% in its first quarter, so the recession continues unabated, and while Europeans (for example) will continue to travel in their more closely connected countries and Italians/French will spend money to dress well regardless, Americans and others are clearly traveling and spending less as the savings rates are increasing and anxiety has set in with the realization that a new President will not be able to turn this around any time soon.
