Global Google Server Down

May 8th

Earlier today Google was down for 15 minutes. While their company spokesman said it was a DNS issue

"It was not a hacking or a security issue," said Krane. He said the problem was related to the DNS, or Domain Name System, though Krane did not elaborate. The DNS translates domain names for computers.

"Google's global properties were unavailable for a short period of time," Krane said. "We've remedied the problem and access to Google has been restored worldwide."

others have screen shots of SoGo Search and the WhoIs info might not have been matching up for a while.

Recently Google AdWords and AdSense stats were not updating.

Wonder how much money the down time cost them.

Seems to be www2 and www3 google servers that are down from here. I just checked on the Google Dance Tool and found results only for the first server, not the other two. And everything is very, very slow! Even Yahoo is unreliable at the moment and I can't see a connection there.

It's still down. It's been up and down all day, but mostly down, in my experience.
