Google AdSense logoA WebmasterWorld thread has several publishers upset over the new beta Google AdSense console. Their issue is, the overview screen is missing two data points they enjoy seeing.

Specifically, the data that is missing are:

(1) Last Month's Estimate Earnings

(2) This Month So Far Estimate Earnings

The new screen does not have these, but it does add data points such as:

(1) Last 7 Days Estimate Earnings

(2) Last 28 Days Estimate Earnings

It also shows percent change from previous periods, which the other screen did not have.

Here is a screen shot of the original design:

One publisher said, "the old version was much more helpful for me - any idea how I get back to that?"

With any change, people miss the old way, so I doubt this will cause many issues in the future.

Google keeps getting worse at user interface design. Accept it and move on.

They need to find people who are on different hamster wheels from the ones that they are on. They're too close to their own tools to design them for the rest of us, and then they explain them badly and incompletely as well. It can be fixed, but first they have to admit there's a problem.

People are worrying about the AdSense dashboard? That's like quibbling about fiddles while Rome burns.

that new adsense interface is complete crap! All google services become more close to that "great" status.

Who stays on the dashboard for more than a second anyway? If you want any real data you have to look at reports. That dashboard is almost pointless.

The previous dashboard was just convenient to get a snap shot of it all. Obviously if you want more info you use the reports. But still losing the this month's estimated earnings and last month's for last 7 days and last 28 (why 28?) was just silly.
