Site targetted CPC. hmmmm
Buying an ad on your own site?

Now that site targetted CPC is out, has anyone thought of targetting their own site (or a friends site) with an Adwords ad and seeing how the Adwords cost per click translates into Adsense revenue? That would be a really good experiment. Any takers?

Dude, you broke the internet!

Fuzzyfish1000, that's too funny :)

mrSEman, you're absolutely correct, with what you stated, we all can find out our individual revenue share, and easily at that (doing test runs don't cost much, especially as you lose only the Google's share).

And compare how that revenue share evolves, especially in comparison to the overall Google payout.

What's even more, I don't remember there being any restrictions to discussing our individual revenue share percentages publicly (because they are not given to us in the first place), meaning we can now compare individual payout percentages.

Why not complete the picture by clicking on your own ad, getting paid for the click and then getting banned for clicking on the ads? ;-P

Hmmm. Earlier today (Friday) someone started a thread here that completely disappeared - vanished - poof!

So mrSEman, what size concrete shoes do you wear?

Site-targeted revenue share may be different from that of the contextual model. If it is, we won't know the most important part (the contextual).

So I'm guessing there were no takers? I figured we'd be seeing many reports on Google/Publisher profit sharing by now. Anyone?

I don't think Google will make things that easy.

Why whould this not be easy?

Step 1:
Make a new page that nobody will visit.

Step 2:
In Adsense make a channel for this new page.

Step 3:
In Adwords, target this page. Or even better, use a friends Adwords account and target this page one week later.

Step 4:
Click one time on your ad (do not use your own internet connection).

Step 5:
Check Adwords to see how much you had to pay for this click.

Step 6:
Check Adsense to see how much you received for this click.

Make sure it's a friend you can afford to lose, in case they get banned. But you have the right idea - use someone else's account.

(do not use your own internet connection).

I thought this was supposed to be easy! ;-)

Question: Why won't MrSEMan try this himself and report back his findings? ;)

Somebody from seniors on this forum (do not remember who) once posted that share is fair. And for some reason i believe it. Not sure why :)

Ya...uhm no don't do that. That is clearly against TOS. Why not put the ad on a page with traffic and wait for someone to click it naturally.

Fair question. I do have an adwords account that has been dormant for over a year as I have long given up trying to increase revenue that way. I guess I could send em another $50 that I'll never see again for this exersize, however, I just thought it would be way easier for someone who is already all setup to go. This is more curiosity than 'need to know' for me. The outcome really wouldn't change anything. I'd still serve ads and cash the G cheque at 50% or 25% of profit. It would be nice to know though... wouldn't it?

I believe it as well although it would be interesting to independently verify it. However I'm not curious enough to risk doing this with my own account :-)
