Google AdSense helps monetize millions of websites, making it an essential tool for many. However, that morning some were shocked when the AdSense dashboard suddenly became unavailable, preventing publishers and website owners from reviewing their earnings or managing ads.
If you navigate to AdSense this morning, the website itself will be up and running, but the publisher dashboard has not been available to many for the past few hours. The problem left the dashboard completely inoperable and a message appeared in its place.
The requested URL% 2Fadsense% 2Fapp was not found on this server.
Most importantly, this issue doesn’t seem to affect ads, just a publisher / site owner’s ability to see the revenue and make adjustments to their ads.
We’ve seen quite a few reports of this issue in the past two hours, including a handful on Twitter. In particular, however, we have observed that in some cases one device can access the dashboard while others cannot, even through the same account and network. It was even found that turning off Apple’s “Private Relay” feature restored access.
Presumably, the inconsistency we see at this point is a sign that Google has fixed the problem it has encountered and the fix is being rolled out. No issues were flagged in the ad status dashboard and some users still seem to notice slower loading times.
