Stats stuck.

Weblog shows things as normal. Adsense is way behind.

Week-end was perfect as total revenue and eCPM!
I love this winter (Europe).

What a disastrous start to the week with one of Europe's richest nations, Luxembourg, delivering me USD 0.03 clicks which is less than either China or India meanwhile Russia is at USD 0.30 click.

Obviously GoogleLand is fubard again.

Just wanted to provide my update - Thursday my clicks tripled but RPC was 1/3 - so daily total was normal.

Friday Saturday and Sunday were all normal clicks and RPC. Thursday is still reporting as it did - not sure what happened with our sites on thursday...

Clicks and earnings up a bit Sunday and this morning for 2 sites.

Oh freakin' hell now what's going on?

Just decided to see if anything had improved from this morning and my EPC is 42.3% of 2012 average with clicks already at 83.3% of daily average.

Croatia, Saudi Arabia and Russia are all stuffing the US, UK and Canada! Needless to say my lowest-ever eCPM...RPM if you want Google BS Speak.

What's been almost totally fubard...again!

Stats stuck for me. It started "good", went away for 5 hours, and it showed a ver low income... waited one hour, and the stats were the same.

Stats stuck for about 3 hours now. Very low CTR all day until the stats got stuck, so I'm assuming some bottleneck at Google. It's been a while since things have been so slow with adsense. This seems to happen once in a while ... ho hum.

They always make changes to their systems on February. Argh.

BTW, thank you tidewatcher for telling me how long the stuck has been. I used to visit the Adsense forums, but since Im from Latin America it is not shooting me to the Spanish forums, which are more than outdated. (And apparently there is no easy way to go directly to the English forum).

Stats still stuck. I believe it started at 3pm. Now it's 9pm EST. It's still stuck.

Must be doing a reboot or a defrag of the supercomputer.

Hasn't changed since 1:00 PM , pst. and there was scheduled downtime today :
YouTube Partner Blog Updates
Scheduled CMS Downtime (February 13, 8AM Pacific)
On Monday, February 13 CMS will undergo maintenance starting at 8am Pacific. ...
( I am assuming of course this is related to the maintenance. )

Stats are moving. Still very low.
3:03 am on Feb 14, 2012 (gmt 0)



A bit of movement here, too. Impressions have updated, and a few clicks added -- first for many hours.
3:06 am on Feb 14, 2012 (gmt 0)



yeah, it is back moving, but it will take hours to catch up.

Never did for me. Earnings closed at less than 30% of average. :-(

Me neither...for now. But these days, seems like Google had set my dial to 4 days - 3 pitiful days, 1 average day, then a big one to make it all even out. On average, though, I'm on the low side this year so far. Not Google to blame... been lazy with my site.

Pretty sure that results from yesterday are still trickling in.

hmmm... comparing the first 2 weeks of february this and last year, I find my graph eerily similar with the same high spike on Feb 6. 14-day long co-incidence?

It seems traffic is lower than expected today (Valentine's Day Holidays).

One can only hope. So far, no evidence that's happening for my account.

These past few days the accuracy of estimated earnings has been very poor - fortunately it's catching up later in the day, but for the first twelve hours or so, the estimates are very much on the low side.

Last month I hit a new record! If things continue going the way they are this month I'll beat last months record. The record for the lowest earnings I ever had since joining adsense in 2004. LOL! Thanks Panda.
8:38 pm on Feb 15, 2012 (gmt 0)



Compared to last year so far 2012 has 15% more traffic and 35% less income from G ads. Started May 2005 and has increased every year up until 2012, now its heading the other way.

Everything looks normal to me.

Well, except maybe for what I call "threshold bias." Goog's algo is doing what it was intended to do: smooth. It just looks ragged from publisher perspective due to small size sample.

Your sample is small. Deal with it.
