Google AdSense Forum

Changing of the Guards
Farewell from old ASA

 5:44 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Hello AdSense pubs!

You may have noticed AdSenseAdvisor (ASA) posting more than usual recently. What's going on, you might be wondering?

I'm stepping down as ASA, and another Googler has dutifully assumed the role. He/she is the one who's been posting as of today. This should come as a pleasant surprise to many of you who've longed for ASA to be more involved with the AdSense forum as AWA is with the AdWords forum. While the new ASA does have "day job" responsibilities at Google, he/she will be able to spend more time conversing with y'all and hopefully give AWA some competition for # of posts ;) GoogleGuy has probably mentioned this change as well in his forum.

As I have said many times, this forum is really an excellent resource for any AdSense publisher. There are some smart cookies on this forum, and I hope you continue with the thought-provoking threads.

With that, I'd like to leave you with one of my favorite quotes from this forum. Ah, a walk down memory lane- this is from 2003 just a few months after the launch of AdSense. Yes, that's how long I've been reading this forum!

One tip for thinking up passwords: think of a song and use the first letter of each word:


(Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, now...). Hard to shoulder-surf, not easily guessed, hard to forgot, and you start your day with a song in your heart.

Old ASA signing off ;-)

Dont normally post much in the Adsense forum but as I welcomed ASA first time around :). Old ASA thanks for all you have done to help the members here - and welcome new ASA.

Thank you for all your contributions in the AdSense forum, ASA!

And welcome to the new ASA, AdWordsAdvisor needs some competition ;)


 5:57 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Welcome from me too, new ASA! Folks might not realize this, but Google's tradition is that each poster (GoogleGuy, AdWordsAdvisor, and AdSenseAdvisor) is a not a team of people; each role is a single person answering questions. I think that's good because you get a consistent voice, and each person is more likely to remember previous conversations on a subject, etc.

Outgoing ASA, thanks for your posts and the warm welcome for the next ASA. New ASA, lemme know anytime I can help with anything on my end. :)

g'bye old ASA, welcome new ASA.

Look forward to reading your posts.


 6:23 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Thanks old ASA, and a warm welcome to the new ASA! Keep going, you've made a terrific start.


 7:10 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Happy Trails, old ASA and thanks for all your contributions here.

And.... welcome new ASA!


 7:21 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

welcome aboard new ASA... now only if it was part of your quarterly goals to catch up to AWA in # of posts!


 7:22 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

goodbye original ASA, welcome new ASA

and just for the record, AWA needs competition, but is unbeatable, even GG has given up methinks ;)



 7:36 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

So we have new google employee to train? Never did get the original ASA to deliver my cheques:) Hate to see you leave us ASA.(the original)

Welcome aboard the new ASA. (See you have the same genetic makeup of our previous google reps....that he/she thingy:):)

Kind of like when they change batmans. Farewell, former

Nice to see a new Google voice here in the AdSense forum.

We look forward to contributions like AWA has posted in AdWords and we promise we won't be too hard on you.

Good luck and may you be helping us for many months to come.

AWA really needs some posting competition.

AWA really needs some posting competition.

Thatís right - and having met the new ASA, I know we have a great person for this very important role!

New ASA, I hope you have as much fun as I do over in the world of the AdWords Forum. It's a great community here on WebmasterWorld, and we all learn a lot from each other.

Outgoing ASA, thanks for all you've done!



 8:35 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

I'm a new poster as of last week or so, but would like to thank the old ASA and welcome in the new ASA :)


 9:08 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)


Old ASA; Thanks for the time, information, and guidance you've provided to members of this forum in the past. May be your future carry you onward and upward with the grace and dignity you've shown us all.

New ASA; Welcome to the WW (wild and wooly?) Adsense forum! As you are joining the fray in full swing, please be assured that we will generously allow you at least .005 nanoseconds to get up to speed. Opps, too late... :)

<--Kind of like when they change batmans.-->
Batman... please, more like Doctor Who - at least he's real.

Farewell old, fare well new...

Thank you for all your help, Old ASA.

Welcome, new ASA. Hope you won't be bored with our ever-present "our earnings went up, our earnings went down" threads. And of course, our number one past time here: whining :o)


 9:32 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Hi folks -

I know this is a bit confusing since I'm sharing the same alias as my predecessor, but I'd like to introduce myself while we're on the 'Changing of the Guards' thread.

First, thank you all for the warm welcome. I'm really excited about joining the WebmasterWorld community as your new ASA, and hope to dedicate some quality time to this forum.

I also want to thank the previous ASA, who has done a wonderful job establishing the role, genetically ambiguous makeup and all. :)

As I mentioned in an earlier post, WebmasterWorld is one of Google's best resources for learning from our AdSense publishers, so it's an honor to be able to participate.

I look forward to our future conversations,

Your new ASA

Welcome to the new ASA! I have always been very impressed to see a liason between Google and the publishers on this forum. Keep up the great work.


 10:41 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Thanks for all your valuable help in the past, old ASA, you will be missed.
Welcome, new ASA looking forward to reading your posts in the future.


 12:48 am on Jul 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

I've really been impressed by Google's willingness to help out its webmasters and publishers. Thanks, and good luck :)


 12:49 am on Jul 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

I wish the old ASA all the best at G'plex and the new ASA a very warm welcome.


 3:42 am on Jul 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

You've been long awaited. An active ASA! :) Thank you for all the time you'll be spending to help us Adsense addicts here.


Guys, can we compose a list of important things we need to share with ASA in a special post? About new features we wish to see for example. Jenstar, may be you can help to get this started with a sticky post.


 4:07 am on Jul 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

Jenstar, may be you can help to get this started with a sticky post.

Let's give ASA a chance to put his/her feet up and get a feel for the forum first :) We can be a rather <ahem> enthusiastic bunch of publishers, but it is a good idea for once ASA settles in ;)

I know AdWordsAdvisor has done a few of them, and traditionally AWA kicks them off with the first post [webmasterworld.com], so hopefully ASA will be doing one sometime in the future.


 4:35 am on Jul 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

stepping down as ASA

Here's hoping that you're stepping onward and upward as you're stepping down. Wishing you the best of everything.

And welcome to new ASA. :)


 5:08 am on Jul 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

Welcome new ASA,
TO original ASA, thanks for your support and great help provided in this forum. Hope new ASA will get the feel of the community soon to post as frequent as AWA.

Best wishes to both.

Thank you to the old ASA. Your posts and advice has been a great help and thanks to Google MANY MANY people have been able to establish a new way of earning a living [or some extra money]. If god runs a counter for good deeds, I guess ASA and Google's counter would be showing:

©2005 Google - 8,058,044,651 Good deeds and counting...

:-) Wish you all the best for the future [and in case you are retiring - Wish you a very happy vacation!]

Welcome to the new ASA. I know your posts will be fantastic advice and much awaited by everyone. It's great to have someone from the plex on the board - talking to all the members. A very warm welcome to you and best of luck.


 3:30 pm on Jul 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

Welcome new ASA - now please stop my CPM from tanking....I can hardly afford to eat :) Thankyouverymuch.

Adios old ASA and Welcome new ASA - looking forward to reading your posts about optimizing our adsenses.

GoogleGuy - I think you should ask for this kind of unconditional love over in the other forums.


 5:50 pm on Jul 29, 2005 (gmt 0)

The ASA is Dead, Long Live ASA! ;)

Google rules for having people communicate with us. Very smart business move too.
