Google Sending Warnings Like A Noob

Recommended Posts

Google is sending people messages, telling them to search their site for problems, look to see if they have received warnings in webmaster tools and suggesting that their traffic has fallen off of a cliff.

 

They don't know that it is Thanksgiving in the USA.

 

This is the type of clamor that noobs get excited about.

 

.

Your earnings on November 27 were 25% below our forecast Sudden drop in earnings

 

What’s this warning?

We’ve noticed a sudden and unexpected change in your earnings. Our
system has detected that your account has earned significantly less than
expected in one of the last three days.


What should I do?

We recommend that you investigate this change in your earnings. Here are some possible actions that you can take:



  • Check your entire site to ensure that it’s working normally and
    that ads are displaying correctly. Please don’t click your own ads, as
    it’s against the AdSense program policies.


  • If you’ve made any changes to your site recently, we suggest that
    you review your changes and make sure they’re working correctly. If
    you’ve made any updates to your allow and block ads settings recently, you should make sure that these settings are working as you expected.


  • Click View report in the warning to view a detailed earnings report. If you have multiple sites, you could check the Sites report,
    in case one of your sites is performing suboptimally. It’s also worth
    checking your Ad units report, as this could help you identify an issue
    with a particular ad unit, for example, if you’ve recently deleted an ad
    unit.


  • We also recommend checking your inbox, including your Bulk/Spam folder, in case you’ve received a policy notification.

I'm so tempted to reply with:

Here are some possible actions that you could take:

* check that your remarketing ads are not chasing a completed sale...

* review your ads to ensure that they are:

---being served in a timely manner

---appropriate to the page content and site audience

* I also recommend checking with your search team who have turned off query data causing suboptimal service.

 

I find it especially irritating that they have the gall to (1) think they get to set my revenue goals, and (2) say that I'm below forecast when every YoY is higher than previous. I'm sooo glad that they are my third ranked revenue stream and not first or sole; boiler room scare-nag tactics are NOT a good sign.

I agree.

 

I think that they should be smart enough to realize that traffic on Google.com is really low on these days before the send the warnings out to webmasters..

 

I wonder how many webmasters in other countries who get a lot of traffic from the USA don't know about Thanksgiving and thought that their chicken house had caught fire.

User-agent: Googlebot-Image
Disallow: /

 

I've just put that into my site with satisfaction.

Yep done that and I'm satisfied but will they drop their my images from their index because I still see traffic from image search.

 

Guess it's time to give msnbot-media the finger too.

that was a great movie. I can see the next steps, Glyn. You either shoot G in the foot and/or cut G up and bury G way out in the woods. or maybe you kill your buddy and park that old friend in an ice truck for a long time (that one was quite creative ;) )
