Adsense UsernamePasswdNotMatch

Monday, October 6th, 2008

So, I went to adsense to check my stats and I get a page that is almost blank with the only text showing being UsernamePasswdNotMatch Ahhhhh…. what have I done to upset the Google overlords….. It sounds like just clearing your browser cache and trying again should get you in. It’s also possible that this [...]

Google sign in’s out of order?

Thursday, November 2nd, 2006

Is it just me or does it seem like about half of google sign in pages are out of order. (GMail seems ok) Adwords, Analytics, and Adsense all refuse to bring up the login box. (Main page for adwords and analytics loads, but the iframe that houses the login doesn’t.) It’s about 11:20AM EST now [...]

Friday, October 27th, 2006

This is a fairly significant “state of this site” type post and well… if you’re a usual visitor you might want to read/skim this one. It’s been about 15 months or so since the last big redesign of this site and as some long time lurkers may know, the updates were FEW and far between [...]

A couple interesting online Advertising notes

Friday, May 12th, 2006

I’ve run across a couple of interesting things. The first was linked to from the second one I’ll mention. I know, some time back, I visited a publicly available Google Adsense tool a few months back and at that time found an interesting tool that gave you keyword suggestions based on a term or keyword [...]

Google Adwords traffic estimator

Thursday, May 11th, 2006

For a long time, the only way to play around with Google advertising possibilities was to join Adwords and then you could choose different keywords, see search volume information, estimate the ad position, clicks per day, etc…. I’ve been tempted many times to look into Adwords (which is the flip side of AdSense…) Many times. [...]

More Google Referral links

Friday, May 5th, 2006

New category for Google Adsense – I talk about it enough here…. anyway. I’ve noticed today that they’ve expanded the referrals program. When it started, the deal was $1 for Mozilla Firefox (with Google toolbar) referrals and then the Google Adsense referral for which you earned $100 (If I recall correctly), when the signup earned [...]
