Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Is anyone besides me having massive problems with Google today? I can't get into AdWords, it just hangs. AdSense is only showing intermittently on half my sites now, and I haven't been able to log into Google Webmaster Central all day either. This is from home and from work, on four different computers, via cablemodem and via DSL. It's like every Google product I normally use has bit the dust. My partner can't get into any of his accounts either. Is it just from here (Michigan)?
Hi netmeg - I've just talked with the tech team, and they're not hearing anything along these lines from the support folks at this point. If it were widespread, they typically would would have had lots of consults by now, assuming it had been going on for more than a few minutes (and is sounds as if it has).
Their advice: see if clearing (at least Google related) cache and cookies makes a difference - and please send details to AdWords support & ask them to investigate.
Many thanks for the heads-up, and I'll post again if I hear more.
I had to remove all the ssl.google-analytics.com code from my sites - it was hanging some completely (depending on browser) and causing others to take forever loading. IE6 will hang completely on one site, firefox 2 will mostly load but still show the hourglass/that it is loading.
AdwordsAdvisor, PM me if you want an example of a site that is hanging from Analytics code.
my Adsense impressions are way down (-25%) today, even though they were above average the last couple days. Not sure if it's related.
AdwordsAdvisor, I havn't used Adwords yet but just in case it might help, quite a few people have noted slow loading in a few threads so it looks like it isn't a cookie or cache problem. It has been going on for a about a week.
Wonder if the allowed sites features incorporation into the program caused a few tech difficulties with analytics or is it side effects of .cn plague because Yahoo has had similar problems apparently.
Thanks for all the added info, which I've passed along to the right folks.
I'll be away from my desk a lot today - but will try to keep an eye on this thread and also keep in touch with the tech teams to see what I can learn.
Hopefully Friday will be better - any day when I can't run reports first thing is a bad day!
