Reduced ad numbers

 4:57 pm on Jul 21, 2003 (gmt 0)

Just got an e-mail from Google to say that I might be getting reduced numbers of ads or reduced ad rotation as there aren't that many ads in my field - guess that refers to niche pages since my site covers a pretty popular subject for Adwords ads. Anyway, I'm glad to be getting a smaller number of highly targeted ads rather than a larger number of irrelevant ones. Non-content-related ads commonly detract from site content. That issue was discussed in the BBC article here:

Hmmm. Anybody else got the similar notice?

A little confusion here. How could popular subject with less ads for rotating?

Interesting to know. Will Google fill the gap with public service ads or just dramaticly reduce the ads rotating? I personally pefer the slow rotating rate instead of those PSAs.

Could we, as publishers, make the choice? If so, I prefer to contact Goolge regarding this option.

Well, my gaps are being filled today bigtime with PSAs. It really hurts sometimes. We are so wide spread that it may only affect 1-3 areas but not in the others. It still hurts though.

I got it in reply to another query about how come the bottom half centimetre was cut off the fourth ad - it didn't answer the question I asked but hey... ;)

Please let us know if you would see the change.

Initially, I thought Google would not manipulate which ads to be shown or not because it would be totally automatic process at the back-end.

If we could make the decision whether to reduce the rotating to avoid those PSAs or other unrelated ads, that would be great. But I still feel it would not be acceptable.

Google does not rotate. Not at all. Not even a little. No rotating on AdSense or AdWords. Never. Stop talking about rotating ads, since google doesn't do that.

What is you call it that I loaded the same page two times with different ads shown there?


 3:33 am on Jul 22, 2003 (gmt 0)

I call it some advertisers having used up their budget relative to others so other ads are shown until their budget is back in line with their average over time and then the first ones are back again...

No matter what you called it, for me and for my visitors, this already reflected the "rotating" effect. Things keep changing.

Remember, the advertisers keep changing their bids and correspondingly their ads keep changing showing position. NOT JUST USED UP DAILY BUDGET!

Just talking from my own perspective as an AdWords advertiser.

Hope everybody could call it whatever they want.

killroy - the word 'rotation' came out of the e-mail I received from Google. No idea whether that's correct or not but I didn't pluck the word out of the air. :)

Of course Google rotate.

There are (usually) on my sites several qualified ads waiting for a suitable publisher.

You can see them if you use one of the gizmos to look into Googes waiting ads.

Reload the page and different ads from the queue are served, Try it yourself

Hmm interesting. I'd love it if there was real rotation.

On my own site I keep gettign thesame 2 ads. When I check with the skyscraper I see that there are more. I'd just asume they are on lower bids and would never move up.
