On DigitalPoint, WebmasterWorld, and Search Engine Watch Forums, adCenterEU of Microsoft has written in to inform the Microsoft adCenter community that adCenter is currently being upgraded to version 3.7.1.
We are pleased to announce the arrival of adCenter 3.7.1. As communicated in advance of the upgrade, reporting will remain out of SLA until around Tuesday May 1st 2007 due to the massive amounts of data that we must process as a result of the upgrade.
Users ‘may’ see some partial data in our BI reporting for day, month, year when compared to hourly:
This is an expected side effect of the upgrade and catch up of data.
This is only affecting data after Friday the 27th of April. All data prior is complete for all grains – hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, etc.
This is only temporary. We expect to catch up on the data end of day Tuesday 2nd May 2007.
Users will likely see blanks or ‘-‘ in the Keyword Performance tab (under the Campaigns Tab) instead of the actual keyword data. We are working hard to investigate root cause. The good news – there is a work-around:
Simply run a Keyword Performance report in adCenter and you should get the data you are looking for.
We'll keep you informed as the progress of this post-upgrade data catch-up.
It will only be fair to wait until after the upgrade is complete (tomorrow) before reporting any errors, although members already have concerns and requests for future upgrades.
