    Google is Down!?

    Is Google working for any of you guys? Suddenly the ads stopped showing on my site, so I checked my AdSense account. Nothing at Google is working for me, though. Is it a regional thing or did something happen to them?

    Wha!? Where do you live?

    This is big news. BIG news. Think about how many people do searches every day... how many advertisers and sites are in the network.

    Good it's not only me. I just did a major upgrade of my site and then Adsense failed. At least I didn't do anything wrong with my adsense code

    Hold that thought. AdSense still isn't working.

    One can only assume that they took it down or that something really critical crashed as they have a ton of dc's all over the planet.

    Yeah, must be critical. In just a few minutes, think of how many thousands (ten thousands?) of dollars they lost.

    And Google certainly seems to produce more server error pages than it ever used to... maybe it's time for the conspiracy theories (again)...

    It really is amazing how many people notice when Google is offline for all of 10 minutes.

    Too bad it happened outside of stock market hours. It would have been interesting to see if their stock price had taken a little hit when their site was down...

    I'm having trouble getting my ads to show again and the AdSense page won't load. Ya'll having troubles, too? This is starting to be an issue.

    Google had a DNS issue not too long ago but that was resolved and they've been fine ever since. If you're having Google issues it might be a local thing.
