My stats are hugely behind this morning for CTR and earnings. Anyone else?

Today, some click without earning too...

Strange, Sunday has been my second best day of the month with Page Impressions about 10% more than a normal Sunday however have I had a catch-up day?

CTR +21.5% with actual Clicks 15% above average, way more than recent Sundays, but it was the EPC in my AdLinks channels which had a stellar performance.

Did I get my clicks and values back from my recent data loss day? Certainly another AdSense abberation day but this time I seem to have been on the winning side:-)

For the past 7 days and including today, seeing the reports it is looking as if Ads are not appearing on some pages. At 5PM, that is 4.30 hrs into the new payment day, one of my domain channel should AT LEAST have 8000 impressions. Since a week, Adsense is reporting around 5-6 K impressions for that domain channel and those lost impressions are never adding up.
Traffic is absolutely normal, if not slightly better.

Sounds like lack of ad inventory, that would also explain your reduction in EPC therefore overall earnings.

Ugh. Another low earnings day yesterday and today is barely a blip.

whywhywhy - What's the general theme of your site?

Is it seasonal or still deep in recesiion like mine is, specialised construction products?

This month has been a total disaster. I'll be lucky to get even the minimum payout this months. I haven't seen figures like this since the day I joined Google 7 years ago.

Yesterday my total revenue was pence, yes pence. Looking back at the figures the amount of people clicking has not gone down. It's just as if the money is 'leaking' away and I can't find the leak.

I joined Kontera last month and they are performing marvellously. I expected it would take at least 4 or 5 months with Kontera before I even got to the minimum payment but the way tings are going I will more than exceed that within another week.

Perhaps it's all the profits Google are making - they are giving their shareholders more dividends and starving us publishers:-)

I just knew there would be a payback for writing that!

Today's EPC is probably the worst I've ever seen it...swings and roundabouts, highs and lows, Google your StupidPricing algo is a mess!

Sometimes I wonder if the much vaunted cleverness of Googlers is just the product of a slick PR campaign.

End of another disasterous day. Visitors normal, clicks normal, renumeration Pence.

If this carries on then Google has to go. Any suggestions for alternatives?

Nothing has updated today in the last 6 hours, totally stuck it seems.

Same here, stats haven't moved for 3+ hours. Likely nothing to worry about, always updates by midnight PST.

I am also seeing that the stats haven't moved for over 3 hours.
10:54 am on Jul 20, 2010 (gmt 0)



Phew...I must have had some big EPCs overnight since I actually ended up with an average EPC day and decent revenue.

The reporting was definitely many hours behind since my clicks/earnings more than doubled and I have to say this seems to have become more and more the norm recently.

It used to be that I would look at figures and think ok, another 50% by the morning finish (I'm in the UK) however several times recently I have seen 100-150% more.

If this is going to be their new system then these threads will be a total waste of time!

Is this the first time you guys are noticing this? Checking your stats in the morning is pointless. It is often significantly delayed yet in the evening things always catch up.

I check only in the evening (EST time) to see the real picture of my Adsense during the day. No point really in checking during the day. Waste of time, and results in unnecessary stress

Most of these "delay" threads have been a big waste of time for years.

Today's stats are best reviewed tomorrow.

To this amount of delay, yes, and only in the past few weeks.

Checking your stats in the morning is pointless.


That really would depend where one is located and the target market. For global sites I tend to agree however for country specific sites it really should not be this delayed surely?

I really do wish they would always catch up, I see obvious data loss as a regular occurrence two to three times a month minimum.

I have a US-centric site and the stats have been delayed in the morning in the last couple of years or so. Hence, pointless to check the stats in the morning. So I am surprised with the abundance of these "stats not updating threads" that some people are just noticing that stats are not in real time anymore (or at least showing delayed) especially during the day

In 2006 when I lost 80% of my Google traffic, I remember the stats were on par during the day. Hence, I knew something was very wrong when lunchtime came and I didn't even hit $100.

Today, it is fairly common to see very little numbers in the morning, yet still the same expected numbers at night

Could it be because they are implementing the new user panel / interface? and who killed ASA? lol - Did you guys watch the movie - the vanishing.

Previous ASA got transferred to another department. Last I heard they didn't have a new one yet. Gotta be a pretty thankless job.

I suppose public relations with your publishers would be low on the list of priorities.

I think there are Google employees in the Google forums. That would obviously be a higher priority than WebmasterWorld. Plus, every time we get one, people land on him/her like a duck on a june bug, blaming ASA for the policies and idiocies of Google, like she was personally responsible for them. Takes an extraordinary amount of patience. I wouldn't want that job (and if I had it, I wouldn't last an hour. I've killed men for less than has been posted here at times.)

Like many of you, I've been on that adsense rollercoaster lately if you read my messages. Very depressing. 3 days ago I turned off "Interest-based Ads Preference" and my adsense has been going nuts since them. Lots of clicks and unheard of EPC. This is crazy!

I'd say, turn it off to see what it does. I opened my mouth so hopefully earnings don't go downhill from now on. :-)

What does ASA stand for guys?
