Here we are, July 1st and I'm trying to be optimistic. I hope this month brings a much needed upswing!

It's hardly surprising my earnings are down when Google fails to load landing pages for me:

[webmasterworld.com...]

I suppose all those over-paid, "talented" engineers were having an extended bbq weekend and couldn't give a stuff their system was broken ... again.

A lot of people in my local pubs know what I do, not AdSense, I repair stuff for them and dispense free advice etc, however it is becoming very noticeable the amount of complaints I am getting regarding "useless" Google ... I know we discuss this in the search forum however Google providing either crap or non-relevant results and now with landing pages not loading, for me, this programme is picking up speed and going downhill seriously fast.

I know some sectors seem to be doing ok however taken across many forum boards and blogs I read, it would seem to be nothing but almost despair with the way Google's heading.

Here's one for you, in the last quarter, April to June, I had less business expenditure online than in any quarter for more than 10 years!

I'm checking precisely why however it's definitely not been a deliberate ploy.

I'm currently on a "four days of brutal". I haven't had one of those juicy comeback days to make up for the consistent 3/10 days. My other revenue streams are sucking as bad so I can't say it's 100% adsense, but perhaps a trend overall. Still looking at that possibility.

Yesterday was decent, considering the situation and considering it was a Sunday.

Today, it started well, then halted. Then it is going very slow. It will be a pathethic day again.

Yesterday was another lousy day here too. That makes three in a row since July 5th. As usual, no idea why the drop. Hopefully today will be better.

> complaints I am getting regarding "useless" Google ...

@HuskyPup - A couple of days ago, I had a series of emails from the owner of one of the sites I manage. He said someone had tried Googling his company name and instead of his website coming up on top, another site was there. I did the same search and discovered that the top spot really was just a Google ad. I then explained to him that Google ads have yellow backgrounds to set them apart (yeah right, a yellow so light you can barely see). Clueless to what's an ad and what's not, click, click, click go the civilians!

Surprisingly yesterday wasn't that bad, but I keep my hopes low to avoid feeling sad later

Five days of brutal. I have no idea if this will be six in a row but surely this can't be par for the course. This many days of 3/10 to 5/10 earnings without a blip is rare.

Yesterday's adsense RPM is the worst day in the last 30 days. Maybe advertisers are just getting back from their vacation to up the bid again. I see a lower RPM across my other display advertising networks too.

Action based ads remain more or less the same.

My traffic is way up and my CPMs are still a full $0.20 lower. Fortunately I have taken on a couple of new direct sales campaigns which are helping a little - but I am pretty disillusioned by Tribal Fusion and Google after this.

My suckage continues. Earning for me have dried up in July. It's somewhat fitting in the sense that my earnings are like the grass outside during summer. Dried up and not healthy.

Impressions and clicks both stuck for the past couple of hours.

This month may end up like last month and the month before that. No great promise, but could be worse.

I'm really hoping this is a glitch in the reporting system as opposed to a bug in the display of ads (facepalm)

"We're sorry, some data in this report is delayed, please try again later. There's no impact to ad serving or payments."

4 hours+ delay.

Ads taking forever to load today. Can't access AdSense or Analytics accounts. But I can get to other sites and accounts.

I've been seeing a lot more errors and slowdowns in Google products lately.

Yesterday was lousy, again. Makes four bad days in a row since July 5th. Like others reporting here, I too am seeing the red banner and frozen stats today. For all the money, brainpower and resources that Google has, it's really perplexing how inconsistent AdSense reporting is. Just keeps getting worse and worse.

Me too but it took quite a long time of delayed reporting before the message appeared. At first I thought my sites were down, the clicks and page views were so low, but then a couple of hours later the message appeared.

Glad to see I'm not the only one experiencing the stat delay. Has been stuck since this morning! Will be typical that they mess up the earnings for us today when the analytics shows good CTR levels.

I believe that Google is doing a lot of back end programming work which is delaying reporting. I say this because momentarily the grey arrows on text ads were re-enabled for one of my sites. And 10 minutes later they were gone again. Hmmm. I predict something big is about to happen.

I would agree avalon. For the first time ever I am seeing a HUGE red stripe across the top of my adsense account saying: "We're sorry, some data in this report is delayed, please try again later. There's no impact on ad serving or payments." The revenue looks about right for this time of day but the impressions are super low. Something is happening. Mozcast is higher then yesterday too. Weirdly none of this is effecting AdExchange - just Adsense.

Actually I just realised (reading the above and the times) - I checked my site last night after my developers made a minor change to it and noticed I was seeing blanks serving in ad spots that NEVER have blanks - we have 100% coverage thanks to AdEx and Adsense. I thought it may have been an issue with their change and I emailed them about it but they have reported that they only made a minor change with one CSS file targetted at IE8 (I am on Chrome and Safari). So I can definitely say there were blanks being served by Google around six hours ago.

Page views and earnings are starting to climb, but are pretty far off at present.

Yep. Interestingly there are reports that other Google services were offline this morning, Gmail, and Drive and Google Plus and other stuff. Someone musta tripped over a cord and pulled the plug out of the wall.
