Top Ten Repetitive AdSense Thread Topics
Works for McDonald's -- Why not WebmasterWorld?

 11:58 pm on Dec 13, 2007 (gmt 0)

McDonald's has to deal with people asking the same things over and over again. So, they invented this incredible time saver. They labelled the most often repeated questions so they can just be referred to by number. So, instead of "Can I get a Big Mac, a medium fry, and a medium Coke?", everybody just says "Number 2!"

How about the WebmasterWorld AdSense forum clean out some of the cruft with the same technique? Just make a list of the top 10 most horribly beaten-to-death and repeated-until-we-vomit questions and then number them. Then, when those tired old questions with really nothing new to say whatsoever show up, a moderator can just say "#7" and close the thread!

Think of the thread-space saved!

My nominee for #1:

My AdSense revenue is less than it used to be. Why is Google so mean to me? Wah!

# My $$$ continue to drop. I am about to join Yahoo now.

# Google take a bigger cut from me

# Can't login to Adsense
..Then lots of reply from the whole world.

Heh! heh! blew me away.

True story:

Mumble, mumble years ago. At least 7 I swear, a certain fellow who ran a popular site and dispensed a daily humourous email, one day went into a feral tirade.

Essentially he was going to ban "anyone" with an address abcxyz@aol.com [you get the picture].

Either get a "real" address or be banned for life. He had a gutful of bounces etc. I know what that was like.

He even published some of the dumb responses he later received "asking why".

Sorry for being OT - tis the season to be jolly

Dear Friends,

My friend can no longer use his Adsense account as it has been stopped by Google. He only clicked on his adsense links a few times by mistake. What is a good alternative to Adsense where they don't track things like this?


 5:39 am on Dec 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

I teach at a local college. I showed my business 101 students how easy it is to make money with adsense, now I'm receiving 500 clicks an hour! Do you think Adsense will notice?


 6:32 am on Dec 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

The same system could be used for other topics here at WebmasterWorld...

In the CSS Forum...

#1 - How do I replace a 3-column table with CSS?

#2 - How do I get my 3 columns to all be the same height?

In the Perl Forum...

#1 - I am looking for a full featured, professional quality script for my site... It must be free, any suggestions?

#2 - Can someone help me fix this FREE script I got?

In the eCommerce Forum...

#1 - What's the best shopping cart to use?

#2 - Oh yeah, I asked for a #1, but I forgot to say it needs to be free, open source and easy to install and modify.

Does link exchange still get you top SE rankings?

You want a Sticky Top 10 FAQ? A sub forum for these issues?


The Google Search News has a sticky:

Google Hot Topics - FAQs

Why doesn't this forum have one too?

18 questions answered here:

Tedster's post [webmasterworld.com] (sticky) at the Google Search forum News and a Jatar_k's post [webmasterworld.com] (non-sticky, lost in space) at this AdSense forum are both interesting lists of threads by topic. There is also the Library [webmasterworld.com], including advanced AdSense topics.

It seems that some kind of sticky FAQ for beginners (possibly with topics not covered on the official AdSense FAQ [google.com]) might be also useful on this forum.

Everybody on board with a newbie FAQ?

I think it's an excellent idea.

I agree. I just hope it gets read!


 9:34 pm on Dec 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

Why would anyone bother reading a sticky if they don't even bother reading Adsense TOS, policies and FAQs?


 9:43 pm on Dec 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

>>>Why would anyone bother reading a sticky

You mean after their post gets locked or deleted?


 9:56 pm on Dec 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

That's exactly my point, I may be wrong but IMHO most of the time this sort of questions are asked by those who don't bother reading adsense TOS and FAQs, and no matter if there's a well explained sticky, they'll carry on asking dumb questions and probably won't care about locked or deleted posts.


 10:11 pm on Dec 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

At least it would make it easy to just copy paste the sticky link url as an answer.


 10:28 pm on Dec 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

Maybe some of the people don't speak or read or write English as their first language, and the AdSense TOS might be too cryptically written for those who need and/or prefer plain, understandable English.

A simply stated, point by point FAQ in plain English would be far easier for everyone to grasp.

Fantastic idea!

It might also be a good idea for the Adsense people to provide some easier to comprehend documentation for their non-native-English-speaking publishers in the first place. There are plenty within the US itself, we're a multi-lingual society.


 6:10 am on Dec 18, 2007 (gmt 0)

...we now return to the newbie questions...

#492. I'm using a bot to promote my site on various forums, do you think that's a violation of the AdSense TOS?

#493. What colors work best for AdSense?

#494. What ad format works best for AdSense on my site?


 6:30 am on Dec 18, 2007 (gmt 0)

#495 If my traffic is from click exchanges, will I get punished by Adsense?

#496 My account was unfairly banned by Adsense, think it'll be OK if I put ads on my websites with a different account that I'll take using my girlfriend's name?


 5:03 am on Dec 19, 2007 (gmt 0)

Okay, one more for the pot:

I think Google is (insert tin-foil-hat conspiracy theory)


 5:28 am on Dec 19, 2007 (gmt 0)

Google is punishing me for (fill in the blank).

Grow up, please.

If you're under 18 you shouldn't be in the program, and you still have time to grow up into being an adult. But if you're 18 or over, start acting and thinking like an adult instead of a whimpering baby.

Google is not Yo Momma and doesn't make you brush your teeth, make you eat your vegetables, or ground you or take away your TV privileges because you were a naughty little rascal.

This isn't Sesame Street or Mr. Rogers Neighborhood or Bugs Bunny cartoons, it's about Adsense, which is a business arrangement intended for ethical adults over the age of consent, who know how to read.


 7:23 am on Dec 21, 2007 (gmt 0)

One of the "rules" of effective parenting is that when babies start to grow into toddlerhood and then childhood, "Don't do anything for them that they're capable of doing themselves." Think about it, if you keep tying the kid's shoelaces for him, he'll never learn to do it himself. You'll have to tie his shoelaces for him so he can go to his own wedding when he grows up.

If they post asking the same question for the kazillionth time, tell them to do a search through the forum, so that someone else won't have to do it for them.


 1:35 am on Dec 25, 2007 (gmt 0)

because of #1 - # 10

I have not visited this forum as often as i used...i find it quite...mmm....boring.....
