This new interface has some synch issues between exporting a csv, the first "Today so far" estimated earnings and the "Today" statistics that run horizontally across the browser in the middle.
I watched a sizable click (>$20) get recorded in the horizontal bar and was then exported via csv in the custom channel file for that ad spot. It however was not recorded in the first "Today so far" spot or my URL Channels report I have set up.
The data stayed like this for a good five minutes, so I pulled up the "Sites" data and the click occured on an IP address - that I subsequently discovered was from a Yahoo cache of the page.
Five minutes later, all evidence of the click has disappeared from my reports with the exception of the click (with no earnings) in the custom channel report. (As a result my EPC is now incorrect) And I probably never would have seen this if I hadn't been checking my stats at the precise right moment.
I guess my question is: Is this acceptable breakage for using the allowed sites filter? I've now added all those IP addresses as well as yahoo.com to my allowed sites (of course it's not returning the click revenue though) but should I just not use allowed sites at all?
And if you allow an IP address, does it also allow all the domains on that server?
