Google Ads platform is down for advertisers around the world right now. See the latest updates around the ongoing issue here.
Advertisers around the world this morning started their weekly routine with a big issue accessing Google Ads.
Word quickly spread across Twitter and LinkedIn, with confirmation from others that this isn’t an intermittent issue.
From the Google status dashboard, the outage was confirmed this morning, January 23rd, at 8 am CST. You can follow the incident in real-time here.
As of noon CST, the issue has still not been resolved.
