AdSense Maintenance Underway

Posted By Darren Rowse 28th of January 2006 Adsense 0 Comments

The AdSense login page has been out of action for most publishers for the last hour or so. Don’t panic – this happens from time to time and usually just means they are either doing maintenance or are upgrading some component of their system.

I seem to remember reading somewhere in the last 24 hours that this was a scheduled downtime. When this has happened previously there has been no impact upon earnings as they continue to track your stats – you just can’t see them.

Instead of checking to see if the stats are back over and over it’s a great opportunity to do some blogging – or better still to enjoy your weekend (a bit of self talk here).

  • You were probably thinking of an announcement by Google that AdWords will be down tonight (8pm to 2am PST)

    I don’t remember seeing anything about AdSense going down, but it may be related.

  • is this something to do with the Chinese New Year? im seeing dog picture in my google adsense.

  • Yeah I got a notice on AdWords, nothing on AdSense.

  • Well whatever happened, they should do it more often – Friday’s earnings were dobule my previous largest daily earnings. Nice!

    (OK I’m not about to retire, but still nice, particularly as January had been a little slower)

  • Yeah, Friday was a bit better than usual, but (for me) Saturday made up for it by being lower than normal.

    Right now, Adsense login works, but is obviously not current – it’s showing 225 page impressions for my site, which is 10% or less of reality. One thing I really, really wish they’d do is put an “as of” time on those stats so we know when they are way behind.
