Do you guys have the link on the top right of your account? I am going to test it out. Very excited :)

Yes, it's been there for some time now.
I went back to the old version.

Think I've had the beta option via a link for a while but I've just had a pop-up when I just checked my reports.

Quite nice all in all, although I'm a bit confused about the "Estimated unpaid earnings" - is this Google's estimate for what you 'might' make in the current month?

After a brief look, i'd say i would need some time to get used to it. It looks messed up to me now and i like the old simple type better

I'm not excited about it at all. I find I'm having to take more time to dig for info that's readily and easily available in the old (existing) version which I'll definitely stick with for now.

I got the link to the new interface today, but after 10 minutes went back to the old interface.
No saved reports (all I had were all gone) and no quick overview what happened today, which I find very important.

Gotta say: it looks very nice but misses the overall simplicity of the old one. It just has to start, after login, with a overview of today without me clicking like crazy to get any info.

It's official: I hate it!


I'm not interested in seeing every time I log in, as the most prominent thing, what my unpaid earnings are and how much i earned last month.

I prefer the old style darker blue as it's easier to read. Also - on my wide screen, the reports are stretched too wide accross the screen. On my laptop however (1028 wide)the whole screen on the reports doesn't fit and i have to keep scrolling back and forth sideways.

I got the link yesterday. It's ok, the graphs are helpful but the interface needs work (sorry G). First try most of the functions were not working, later still few functions didn't work. Later on the system functioned enough to try it. Too much ajax... Is it me or this new thing is... slow?

Strange, some options on the old interface were blocked, I've seen some other users reporting this too but finally I have them enabled.

I've seen the new interface. But I still have to go back to the old one.

I like the graphing functions and some things. It would be nice if they do not obsolete the 'old' interface. Having both is nice.

You can... but not at the same time. You have to revert back to the old, and visa versa.

I am wondering how long the old interface will be available. As I do not see my reports in the new one (just guessing they didn't cenvert them), I won't be using the new one.

I can't believe they didn't import my reports.
Thanks Google! I know you'll take the old interface away soon, so *I* have to spend time recreating them? Bah!

I want the sites report back :( It used to be in the earlier beta of the new interface and I used it quite often. Guess its back to URL channels.

After spending some 30 mins on new user interface, the most helpful thing I found on the new interface is 'Return to old AdSense interface'. I dread the day when they pull the plugs on legendary interface.

There's some aspects of it I like, but mostly I use the old one. I wish they'd come up with one that I could access with a Blackberry browser though.

What *really* ticks me off is that Analytics has a compare function to compare two date ranges, and now the new AdSense panel has it too, but IT'S STILL NOT AVAILABLE IN ADWORDS. And that's where I need it most. What's THAT about?

Well, I gave it some time this morning - its a lot slower than the old interface, thats for sure.
And the final straw that drove me back to the old interface? Crashing my browser a lot.
Too much js in these pretty screens Google does these days - slows the whole thing down. Just give me the numbers, dammit!

In new interface, we can change the country. Change of country option was not available in previous version. Can any body confirm whether its really true?

I like the new interface. :) I prefer to have a graphical representation of the data.

I particularly like the "Ad Types" report where you can see what proportion of ads are showing as text, images, flash, etc., and the respective CTRs, CPCs, and RPMs.

Driris, I don't yet see an option to view the data by visitor's country...

I think I was given the link to the new report about the first week it was beta launched, which was a long time ago. I looked at it 3 times and each time I reverted back to the old interface.

Same here. Every time I try to use the new UI I revert back to the old one because I can find data much quicker and easier to comprehend what went on.

I think it's the total earnings that haven't been paid yet, i.e. last month's and what you've made so far this month.

My biggest beef & why I returned to the old one is that I have few needs in AdSense.

When I log in I want to see today's earnings with top channels & yesterday's earning's with top channels.

Near the end of the month I want to see month by day. That's the only one that's on the first page.

I'll stick with the old version as long as I can.

I have been using Analytics more often these days personally.

It does have a cleaner layout I thought and more features for people who have a lot of traffic through their site.

I can definitely see that one of my sites is the top earner and daylight second.
