    Just got an email from the friendly people at Google Adsense:

    >

    > your AdSense reports for the month of February have recently
    > been updated. This delay resulted in a portion of clicks and
    > earnings being slow to appear in your account. All clicks and

    >
    > In addition, you will notice an Adjustment line item on your
    > next monthly invoice. This adjustment is for clicks and
    > earnings from January that were also affected by this delay. We
    > are making a one-time adjustment to credit your account with

    >
    > We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, and we

    I swore that I saw different results a couple of times while logged in over the past month. Guess I am not going crazy.

    I got similar message from Google, but not exactly the same one:

    Hello,

    We would like to inform you that, due to a reporting delay, your AdSense reports for the month of February have recently been updated. This delay resulted in a portion of clicks and earnings from the last few weeks being slow to appear in your account. They have now been credited to the correct days, and your reports and earnings will reflect the correct activity for this period.

    We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, and we thank you for your patience.

    Sincerely,
    The Google AdSense Team

    Well, if they are not giving me the money they should be, I will worry about it. :)

    I have noticed another thing. The impressions served by our sites over the past two days (since receiving the email) has increased by about 20%....yes, 20%. We are talking about a lot more impressions. I have not seen anything in our stats that would account for that big of an increase, but it is possible that it is a coincidence. Anyone else seeing more impressions in their Adsense account for the past two days?

    No, I do not see a change in a number of impressions.
    I have a 3rd party statistic running at my pages and during many months I see very close numbers between adsense reports and my stat.
    The difference is usually about 2-3% and I do not see a change during last days - it actually became even more accurate. So in my case there is no 20% change during last days...

    Riziko,

    I'm using http://www.statcounter.com/ as a 3rd party statistic for my web site. Do not want to say that it's the best one, but I've tried multiple ones and statcounter is definitely the good product and it has free options (limited by your traffic) to check it out...

    I had read in AdSense login in Feb, that there was some delay in reporting in month of Feb. Probably all this relates to that delay. But I did not get the email too.

    Im not too worried about it. Adsense is doing a good job as far as i am concerned. My main qualm is payment approval is too slow.
