Great weekend and a great Monday ad revenue-wise. Traffic is off a cliff though.

Looks like I lost my arrows on mobile and tablets ads back on November 2. Did this happen to anyone else, and if so, what did you do to get them back? And how long did it take? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

AdSense reporting delayed for anyone? Seems stuck here or is updating extremely slowly.

Bah...


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

Yesterday was not a good day for Adsense. Strange figures reported; low payment.

Today is horrible. Are the stats stuck again? I see a lot of traffic but nothing moves the way it should. CPC is good...

My earnings are down sharply today. I checked my coverage figures, I'm at 39%. I have my ad-balance set at 50%, and I've been averaging pretty much 50 or 51% steadily over the past few weeks, my lowest dip was 44.5%. and max 54.5% But today so far I'm at 39%.

Anyone else seeing low coverage numbers?

Hmm, not that low for me. But i know the more aggressive I've been with adbalancer the lower the the coverage has been (typically). 50% balance got me between 60% to 80% coverage.

Today it was 60% balance and 80% coverage. Maybe available inventory could be reason why? Are you blocking any categories or ad networks?

No drop off here in coverage numbers. We have the slider at 90%.

Since when Ads by Google and X (close button) hides while scrolling?

I am still seeing low coverage, across two accounts and I spoke with someone else who runs a site completely unrelated to mine and they are also seeing a drop in coverage with no ad-balancer in use. They are seeing between 70 to 75% coverage since yesterday despite consistently having coverage close to or at 100%.

@CommandDork I have a few typically spammy categories blocked, but this has never been an issue in the past so I doubt that it would have an impact here.

I've been seeing that for the last few days in the UK and it's been driving me barmy with it covering the entire screen on mobile, also they've been doing some massive pop-ups on some sites, literally full-screen pop-ups, which annoys the hell out of me.

Plus I've also seen a Google questionnaire after closing these ads asking me why I had closed it!

@NickMNS I have also been experiencing low coverage. I have even noticed blank/empty ads on some pages. This started on December 18th for me and has been going on for over a day now. Some pages on my sites have ads while others show blank. I'm in the US and I am also enrolled in that User First Beta program but Im really not sure why this is occurring. I have noticed some posts here and there on here and in the Google Adsense Product Forums.

@kelsheikh and @NickMNS I am also experiencing low coverage and extremely low RPM these last couples days (18th and 19th). Losing a lot of money. This is starting to worry me.

@kelsheikh we are on the same boat "Some pages on my sites have ads while others show blank. I'm in the US"

What to do?!
