AdSense Down for Maintenance

Posted on November 11, 2006

Google's Inside AdSense blog is blogging that AdSense will be down for four hours this afternoon. They recommend taking down Halloween decorations or trying out some turkey or tofurkey recipes while AdSense is down.
This Saturday, November 11th, our engineers will be performing routine system maintenance from 10am to 2pm PDT. Although you won't be able to access your account during this time, ads will still be served to your pages and we'll continue to track your earnings as normal.

While we know it will be hard to drag yourself away from your account for 4 hours, maybe this will give you a chance to clear away those cobwebs you told friends were "Halloween decorations." Take your pal Jack O. Lantern for a visit to that new neighborhood hot spot, the compost heap. When you've eradicated all the ghouls and goblins from your home, gear up for the next celebration by doing a quick search for turkey recipes (or Tofurky recipes, if you prefer).
The Online Marketing Blog is discussing the message Google's is currently displaying on AdSense accounts. It displays the text "The Google AdSense website is temporarily unavailable. Please try back later. We apologize for any inconvenience." in multiple languages.
