AdSense LogoI hope all you east coasters (I am one of you) made it through Hurricane Irene without much of an issue. I was very lucky myself.

But even those not in the path of the storm were nervous about the impact Hurricane Irene would have on their business.

A WebmasterWorld thread has some publishers asking if the hurricane had any negative impact on their AdSense income. With millions of people losing power and still many without power, it can cause a major issue for sites who depend on their AdSense income.

If people cannot turn on their computers or access the internet, they cannot navigate the web or search the internet. If they can't do that, they can't click on ads and make money for publishers.

The big question I have is, is your weekend traffic and income down from a typical weekend? Here is our poll:

It's probably due to millions watching CNN and other new networks instead of surfing the web. Being the last week of August, people are also taking vacations before school hits. I personally think it's a combination of events, but traffic's down a little for sure.

Many places in Maryland were without power for almost one one week in the aftermath of hurricane Irene.  Although it looks as though most folks are now back up and running, there are still some anecdotal reports of continuing outages.
