http://www.webmasterworld.com/google_adsense/4002456.htm might explain a few things.

How? Today is not Saturday.

But I can log in (just did so).

As did I.

What update ?

Update your AdSense and AdWords login to a Google Account

Are you one of the following people?

* info@example.com

If so, then you have already updated your login to a Google Account.

I can get into the business centre, AdWords, Analytics etc but not AdSense...ah well, I'll have a beer and check again in the morning

Adsense asked me to log-in this morning. Funny because since I'm usually logged-in to my Google account, I'm just taken to the reports page directly from my bookmark. I can reach my reports page after logging in though.

Same here, andrewshim. I'm also having to manually log in despite being logged in to my Google account. This is getting old fast. I think something got broken.

HINT: I'm using SysSense to display pop-up stats every 15 min and when I went to go into the account manually via SysSense "Open AdSense Account", which I do daily, it stops on a LOGIN page which has never happened before.

Therefore, something has changed in a major way.

Just right now, I wanted to start this thread!

I have an AdSense account with jettero@example.com

I have an Google account with jettero@example.com

And when I want to combine, there is the message

AdSense account with jettero@example.com already exists

Have been having the same problem all day. Finally found something that worked.

Login to your Google Accounts. Then from your Accounts page, paste this link into your browser and press Enter:
[google.com...]

Hope this helps. For some reason it works for me.

When I get stuck in that loop I open a new tab and sign in to my google webmaster account. Then I refresh the Adsense page and try again, and it logs me in with no problems.

My accounts are all combined under one and I cannot get into Adsense either.

What is weird is it no longer remembers me, the single sign on does not work. And when I do relogin to Adsense, it loads my reports page in the small login box frame. So I can't do anything since the frame is so small. Weird.

This has been happening since yesterday.

This has worked for me, thanks...otherwise still in the old groundhog day loop!

They simply did not want me to see what an excellent Tuesday I had:-)

I should clarify, mine problem of the page loading in the login box frame seems to only happen in Safari (on my iPhone).

The single sign-on no longer works though. Even on my computer I keep getting asked to login every time. And as I said before, I linked all my Google accounts years ago when it first became an option.

Thank you! I was having the same problem last night and this morning. Endless loop of "your account already exists". Yes, indeed it does...

I also have to log in manually even though I am logged in to Google accounts. Annoying.

Same here. Logged into Google Accounts but not remembered for AdSense.

https://www.google.com/adsense/login3

Doesn't work for me either.

p.s. Could this possibly be something which Google is doing deliberately after the reported Gmail phishing attacks? To make sure there are no attempts on AdSense?

I have my Norton Internet Security set to autologin for certain sites, so it automatically fills in the Adsense login for me.

I was wondering that too.

https://www.google.com/adsense/login3

I had to wait a good 10 seconds or so for it to load and it's still my only access method...sa far!

Wonder why they would just protect adsense and not adwords accounts as well if the Gmail phishing attacks is the reason.

Our engineers are aware of this and are working on it. I was chatting with one of our hardworking front end engineers last night at around midnight (he was still in the office working on this).

I'm looking into a possible workaround and will let you know as soon as it's ready.

In the meantime, I'm really sorry for the inconvenience.

OK, we think we've figured out what's going on here (and by "we" I mean my friend the engineer).

It looks like this issue is only happening to folks who signed up for AdSense before we asked everyone to use a Google Account. When we migrated everyone over to Google Accounts, if you used the same email address for your Google Account as for your previous account, you may be experiencing problems with your login screen right now.

This also explains why so many WebmasterWorld people are seeing this problem, as you guys tend to be some of our most experienced AdSense publishers.

We're still working on correcting the issue, but I'll get back to you as soon as we've got something in place. In the meantime, some publishers experiencing this same issue have reported that they can log in using this URL: [google.com...] Let us know if you're still having issues logging in using this URL.

Thanks ASA...whilst resolving this issue, and especially for those of us with the older accounts, please feel free to increase our CTRs and EPCs and delete smart pricing...pretty please:-)

That's why I wasn't affected, as I do not have a Google Account - whatever that is.
