does anybody see their adsense earnings appear to be reporting slow today? the impressions are pretty much where they should be for this time of day, but the earnings seem too low. anybody else seeing this?

Glad it's not just me. Earnings have been okay-to-good so far in November, but today (Nov. 5) stats are completely stuck. I await a click dump.

My stats aren't stuck, but, I am seeing ONLY number of clicks and the estimated earnings levels updated - the other stats (CTR, eCPM, page impressions) all set to zero.

Anyone else seeing this?

As I mentioned earlier, my stats were pretty stuck yesterday and I received a small clicks dump but I still think they missed the majority of my clicks.

I posted up on the Google Ads forum (http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/AdSense/thread?tid=757b86566f840e91&hl=en) and an engineer replied linking me to another thread about this issue whereby Google's official stance is - and I quote -


The site is working for most publishers, so it's probably something wrong in your computer... There is little we can do to fix the problem if it is specific to your configuration and we cannot reproduce it...

We are not making any significant changes to the old interface, because it is in maintenance mode and we are working on the new interface.... Given that the problem seems to affect a very small number of publishers, it's almost certainly an issue with your computer... and we cannot do anything to diagnose or solve it.

...In any case, there seems to be nothing we can do on our side to fix the issue.


Which is pretty poor to be honest. It seems to literally be a case of "Yep, there are some issues but we have absolutely zero plans to fix them".

Gee, thanks!

(I wish that Microsoft/Yahoo/either/or got on with creating a viable alternative to AdSense)

What has an interface got to do with data? that could well be a reply from an young 21 year old that google has employed in its offices...and who is in a hurry to catch up with entertainment in the office...

I too had a small click dump but have the feeling that data is missed...google will do well to respond more professionally to these issues.

Today I woke up to a disaster. CTR is half and ecpm is about 70% lower compared to other friday's. Lets hope this is truly a lag. I've never seen anything like this and starting to get annoyed with all the reporting lags.

Reporting for me is definitely well behind today...25% of the GoogleDay and 10% of the action!

Reports were WAY behind all day today, but now seem to be catching up. I see this as a trend. Before noon (Google time) things are laggy, but in the early-mid-afternoon (Google time, aka PST) it starts to catch up, and often by the end of the day my earnings are fair to good.

My CTR is slightly down, not terrible, but down from October. But I guess impressions or whatever are good enough to compensate for that, because (so far) overall, it's a decent month.

My month has been good so far, but today is unimpressive.

In my own stats, I noticed a new earnings trend that loosely started around October 20th. I always have to come up with some explanation for things that admittedly probably need no explanation, so I looked around. Along with the AdWords quality score reporting problems reported in WebmasterWorld, Google holiday algo tweak and other assorted stuff, I found this Inside AdWords Blog post about changes to the bid simulator that more closely marks when the changes occurred in my neck of the woods:

[adwords.blogspot.com...]

Those of you with AdWords experience - could the bid simulator upgrades affect things in a major way? And if so, would a lot of advertisers in a lot of different niches suddenly start using it differently right on that day? (Sometimes I wish I had a website that merited using one of those reappearing AdWords signup coupons, so I could plunge in and get a sense of how it's navigated by advertisers.)

I do think the chances of its being this are probably slim...advertisers must still be adjusting to Google Instant and Mayday is still affecting things, and gosh knows what else...but I can't help grasping at those straws, and I think that developments (or backslides) in the AdWords system in general do affect our revenue pretty significantly.

I would bet that mostly only the agencies and large advertisers are using the bid simulator on a regular basis.

Fed up with the reporting lag? Even on a slow day, Google offers the most up-to-date reporting of any ad or affiliate network I've ever used. Considering what all has to be factored in, it's no small wonder to me that we get it as quickly as we do.

I would have to agree with @netmeg. Google does a tremendous job of timely reporting given the volume. Boards like these are good to see if others are experiencing an unusual lag and for reassurance (for those who check their stats a bit too much). But I have never seen any such system function as well over time. Same with Analytics, which is a first-rate piece of Web software.

Having said that, it would appear that there has been a lag of late, so it might be best to concentrate on content, etc. so as not to become paranoid, as is the trend these days.

Agree with Netmeg. It is easy to complain about this and that with Adsense, but nothing else that I've used generates as much revenue, has as many tools or reports as fast. Some other networks don't report until mid-day the next day.

Shoot. Are we going to get a minute by minute account every time Adsense farts and burps ?

Get over it. Just let it ride. Jeez.<rolls eyes>

It's always going to happen. For all we know, they could be going through another set of algo's.

Sure, it's a PITA. But there is no point to keep mentioning it when the stats are slow/stuck. And it was barely 2 hours into the "adsense day".

99% of the time it sorts itself out. Other times you end up with a sh*t day, but that's life. In reality, there is nothing you can do about it.
