Google AdSense logoGoogle announced you can now change the time zone of your AdSense reporting to your local time zone. Much like how Google added that for AdWords about six years ago.

Up until now, Google always reported your AdSense earnings based on Pacific Standard Time (PST) but with this change you can now set the reporting to be based on your local time zone. I changed mine to EDT.

To update this yourself, go to the Account information section on your Account settings page, a field now exists for time zone information where you can select your preferred local time setting.

Google notes that when you "update your time zone preferences, you can expect to see some anomalies in your local earnings data for that day."

This is a great advance from Google - but there still seem to be some problems. It takes a couple of days for your income to "align" with your new timezone which is understandable, but the Mobile API doesn't seem to take any notice of the change so if you are in the UK, for example, your PC will show income from midnight as today's earnings, but the mobile app and the Chrome Publisher Toolbar still show income from midnight Pacific time.
