Today i was forced to use the new homepage of adsense. There is no way back to the old one...

I really miss the statistic month till today earnings, i only have the last 7/28 days.

Is everyone forced to use the new homepage?

Nope, I still have the old one. Look in the lower left sidebar and see if there's a link to switch back.

Before i had the lower left sidebar to go back but not anymore. It started with a full screen banner introducing the new homepage.

Yep, they switched me too. Can't go back. Great going, AdSense, my home page is full of metrics I don't care about. Oh well.

Got forced into the switch today and I'm not happy about it. Way more javascript nonsense and it's very slow.

Google, please focus on ad relevance instead of wasting time on nonsense site changes.

I've been on the new page so long I completely forgot about the link back to the old page, I forget what it looks like.

I just use the app to check stats quick these days. It still gives me the numbers that are relevant to me.

Really Google, who runs a business on 28 days? I would totally get that if you paid me on a 28 day cycle, but you don't so that number is worthless.

Pfffft on this new 'interface." Obscuring even more data with less of what I care about and more of what really doesn't matter. No clicks, no like. At all. Good going Goo kids.

I don't like it at all. It doesn't give me much that I need. And there isn't any link to go to the old interface. And now we have to figure out the CTR manually I guess. Pffffffffffffft

Yeah I'm not happy about pageCTR being removed. The new design is really hard on the eyes too I think. Everything I needed was on 2 or 3 lines before. Now it's all over the place.
Notice they claim this is what we asked for? I don't recall ever asking for anything like that.

Simply horrible but fortunately I can get straight off this totally useless page immediately to where I can find the real information I want.

I don't recall ever asking for anything like that.


It's years since Google ever listened to what we would like, I'm amazed that the font colour isn't Google designer greyed-out so that we can't read anything!

If You go to the mobile version of adsense you have the old statistics.

It is a quick check on money made for the month so a rough is fine. Really, when it comes down to brass tacks, I need to know how much I am making this month compared to last year, and to a certain extent last month (because I have a P&L that predicts how much I should gain or lose over last month).

To be honest, there comes a point in traffic where you stop worrying about day to day CTR and RPM. I passed that point a long time ago. I check those only about once a month.

We don't have an AdSense Advisor anymore.

Meh, the page keeps going back and forth, but I just set up a report in performance and set it to show products, and I get what I cared about from the old home page. It just means an extra click is all (and if I edit my bookmark, not even that)

GooKiddieCrap ... Quite simply they are proving they are completely out of touch with many publishers ... GooJobsworths

I can't believe it doesn't show the month to date figure or the clicks now.

I see what you're saying, Netmeg. Only one more click, but they sure didn't make the default page very user-friendly, did they?

Well not to this user. I get the strong impression this is Google trying to get us to stop focusing on things like CTR and EPC (in other words - the metrics we've noticed to be most spotty) and divert our attention somewhere else - SQUIRREL!

Probably won't work so well with the existing publishers but the new ones might be talked into it.

How can you add saved reports to appear in the new home page?

Switched for the second time an no option visible for the old version. "Classic" seems to mean the new version.

The mobile version gives today, yesterday, month to date and last month. Unfortunately for lower volume sites there is no current balance.
