Interesting piece of info by BBC regarding use of AdSense on Google Custom Search Engine.

The search engine does not disclose the exact amount users will receive. However if an "earned balance" is less than $10 (5) Google will not pay up.

I just set up one today as a test. What I don't know is how it shows up in my AdSense account as regards my normal site and search earnings. There doesn't seem to be the ability to assign a channel to it, so how does it keep track? Anybody? ASA? I went searching through the AdSense docs AND the Coop docs, and couldn't find any mention.

I've been running it on one of my sites for a few days. I don't have AdSense for Search for my site, so all the clicks for the custom search engine are listed under AdSense for Search in my reports.

With the caveat that three days data is probably indicative of nothing significant, about 8% of my site visitors use the custom search engine and about 8% of them click an ad. I'm sure many of my site's visitors haven't quite figured out what it is yet.

I know my site doesn't cover the total breadth of its subject matter. Let's just say no site ever will, it's a pretty large subject. My custom search engine is set up so my site's visitors can find information from other sites on this subject. I'm liking it for my own research. It's a service for my site visitors first, and if puts a few dollars in my pocket in the process, that's cool beans.

Not being able to separate this out from my other AdSense for Search is a *major* issue.. I hope ASA or someone comes along to address it quite soon.

I have tried it on one of my sites, no clicks so far. You cannot open the CSE search in a new window like Adsense for search.

I started playing with it, but looks like a fair amount of work for the niche I'm in. I'm considering getting a new domain just for this feature though and working on getting traffic seperately.
