So about a month ago, AdSense announced a new Chrome extension for keeping track of your earnings.
Since every single one of my previous AdSense tools no longer works (BTW, thanks for that, Google) I installed it on three computers to see how it would perform.
At first, it worked perfectly and all was well. You just click on the little blue box to the right of your search bar, and a popup window displays a whole bunch of useful stats, as shown in the above link.
After a couple of weeks though, things began to get a little more spotty. I still have one laptop where it appears to be working perfectly. On my other laptop, it now only loads the header, my Google account email address, and the Help link. Nothing below the grey separator - which means no stats. I have removed it entirely and reinstalled several times, but it doesn't change. I have removed every other extension, but it doesn't change. My Chrome is up to date. All I get is the header.
The display on my office desktop is even weirder. It always lists the day's earnings as $.01. Even when I can go over to my account and see perfectly well that there is more than $.01, the Toolbar always reports $.01. Even more interesting, it accurately reports all the other stats. Yesterday's earnings reported at $.01 all day yesterday, but today (now that they're yesterday) they're accurate.
Of course, there is no support, no help group, no nothing, and what Google calls its support site is just two pages of instructions with no pointers on what to do if the bloody thing doesn't work.
Anyone else give it a try?
