AdSense for Content AND AdSense for Search have been replaced by a new tab!
Let's all give a big round of applause and welcome --
yep its gone! - must be an update :)
Yea i just saw that. Looks good. I like the new look!
I think i just shat myself..
I hope i'm not going to have to step thru that setup wizard every time i want code!
Better then that check out the Competitive Ad Filter.
Now, that's a nice little change--being able to toggle back and forth between the two filters.
Looks like the changes are posted here:
A nice change is the ability to see how much you are making via CPM ads:
|We now offer more detailed reports about the type of ad targeting you're displaying on your pages. See how much of your traffic is viewing site-targeted CPM ads and how much is viewing contextually-targeted CPC ads. To view separate reports for contexual targeting and site targeting, visit your Advanced Reports page, choose AdSense for content as the product, and click the checkbox marked Show data by targeting type - contextual or site. Then generate a report as usual. |
Although I don't see the show data by targeting type checkbox they mention.
Very elegant...good improvement.
the interface cleaned up nicely, good job google!
|Although I don't see the show data by targeting type checkbox they mention. |
They forgot to mention that it only works (or only appears to work) with the show data by individual ad unit option.
but, you have to step thru the "next", "next" buttons every time you want code? is there a way around that?
Has their policy page always said AdSense can't be on pages with "Excessive advertising"?
I think all the AdSense they allow on a page is "Excessive advertising" so who the hell are they to judge?
Maybe that is a change to give them more room to deal with MFA sites. That may just be wishful thinking on my part, of course.
Hmm, kinda sucks you have to go through so many steps to make an ad..
What I like is the replace report function on the reports page.
I think it is organized better this way, the steps and "continue" button is fine to eliminate missing a step in the previous 'all in one page' code page, which happened to me more than once. Plus you don't create code everyday.
I would hate it though if I am creating tens of ad unit codes with only one difference like channel name for example.
They do run beta testing groups before launching don't they?
Option to track site targeted ads appear to be very useful. I wasn't even aware that I serve so many site targeted ads with excellent CPM
|They forgot to mention that it only works (or only appears to work) with the show data by individual ad unit option |
Thanks, there it is now :)
Now if I could only get this (untargeted) site targeted/expanded ad off my homepage, everything would be keen.
Well, so long to all those threads about how to tell if you are site-targeted or not.....
I have no idea why they couldn't have left an "expert" mode for selecting ads.
I didn't like it. It makes it harder to get you channel codes when you have multiple channels for optimization. Before was just a matter of selecting a new channel from de drop-down box and the copy/pasting the code. Now you need to keep going back and to change the channel and clicking next to get the code.
Glad to see the site targetted thing - the performance of site targetted ads is extremely poor, with respect to the regular context targetted ones (CTR is only a fraction of a percent).
I would love to be able to see those site targetted ads so that perhaps I could see WHY they are performing so poorly, particularly since my traffic is pretty high quality.
It looks like you already have your answer, but here's the official response to your question:
|To determine whether site-targeted cost-per-thousand-impression ads are appearing on your site, visit your Advanced Reports page. When you choose AdSense for content as the product, and show data by Individual Ad Unit, you'll see a checkbox titled 'Show data by targeting type - contextual or site.' When you check this box, you'll be able to see how many site-targeted ads you're displaying on your pages. |
Less cluttered. Looks nice.
OK, I've just looked at the Jan. & Feb. numbers and the site targeted ads absolutely suck.
How do I get site targeted ads off my sites?
I always thought that G always showed the ads with the greatest earnings potential. This is just not the case.
In an ad unit I have with just one ad block over two months the site ads are only 25% of the contextual ads.
Am I missing something here?
Majority of the time I never even notice something until I read a topic about it here. I haven't clicked those buttons since I first set up my ad colors 12 months ago. But sure enough, it's different. I think that's better. Don't really need all those buttons up there anyway.
Yep, very nice.
Why people don't think the most obvious (simple) reason? They just make room for new tabs?! :)
my site targets are not doing well at all. Can't tell which ad is the targeted one. It tells me the page and ad unit but it must switch itself around.?
