Does anyone know when does the new day start for Adsense reporting. Report says "TODAY" but what is Today actually? Is it New York time or what?

The rollover to the new "TODAY", aka tomorrow, usually happens about 12:30 PST/PDT

Yup, rollover to the new Adsense at midnight PST (i.e. day's end in Plexland) or, currently, 8 in the morning here in the UK (although final stats don't usually show till about 8.25 am). BTW, if any time you want a head's up on how your Adsense earnings are going check out the Adsense stats in Analytics. From my experience, the Analytics reporting (though never totally accurate) runs a few hours ahead of the Adsense account interface. Typically when Adsense is clicking over to $0 for the new day, Analytics tells me I've already earned $30 or $40. Gives me some idea how the new day is going to start out. Eventually, Analytics always under-reports my earnings though by about a third.

Let's try this all again. End of day:

This would then be:

UTC - 07:00

London - 08:00

US East Coast - 21:00

Hanoi - 14:00

Hawaii - 21:00

Hong Kong - 15:00

Paris/Berlin - 09:00

Mumbai/New Delhi - 12:30

Sydney - 17:00

I'm in CA where Google is, usually sitting at my desk around that time, I have a popup that alerts when the money changes, and it usually doesn't reset to $0 until 12:15-12:30 PST/PDT as often I see the last update with the final money at near 12:30.

YMMV in different locales.

LOL! I screwed up! Got the time correct in my brain - from the brain to the fingers I slipped a gear! Million apologies. <red in the face>. I should never rush an answer when in a hurry!

Thats interesting Bill.
Turnover time is 5pm here (changes with daylight savings, of course) so I am often at my desk when it changes.
It always resets to zero by at most 2 minutes past the hour
(I swear I'm much better than I used to be about not watching it constantly... ;))
