AdSense Account Strategist help
Can anyone report that they've been helped?

A few months ago I received an email introduction from someone from Google saying he was an adsense account strategist and he was offering to help. I've seen a few others post here saying they had received the same offer.

The guy has emailed me several times now, so today I have finally responded with a long email detailing how we use AdSense, what's worked and what's not working.

Just wondering if anyone else has taken their account strategist up on their offer and if you have had good results. Thanks!

I'd suggest just sticking with this forum.

That sounds an exotic title but for what?

Is he offering to advise you where to make your ad placements or how to best implement arbitrage or something else?

I'll spend your money for you if you like:-))

It does sound kind of strange - I mean is he offering to help you or are you having to pay for his services? It just doesn't sound like it is legitimately coming from adsense - but then again I could be wrong

>> legitimately coming from adsense <<

Google does offer this service to some publishers.

They offer suggestions on how to improve performance, and it doesn't cost anything.

There's no doubt he's from Google, has a G return address and his vacation email came back immediately after I sent him my email (guess they have off at the 'plex today.)

dataguy, I have been assigned to an Adsense Account Strategist as well. I was originally contacted over the holidays, however did not respond. I received another email from this individual and responded with many observations and very specific questions about the performance of my Ads and my site in general (two weeks ago). I have not heard from them yet.

Check your sticky mail…

Looks like your questions may have been a little too in-depth.

We have been working a strategist for months now. A great woman always ready to help with almost anything AdSense related - also helped us with new layouts and monetization programs. A big relief considering that G does not otherwise have a customer support telephone #. If you do not have a strategist please note that not everyone seems to get one. Only accounts with a certain income qualify.

A couple years ago I got an email from a Google rep asking for a phone number for her to call me on and to choose some set phone appointment time. She called at the specified time and it was obvious that she had already gone over the site in discussion in detail and she had specific comments of stuff for me to try. They were good suggestions.

We were already well optimized, so we did not gain too much in that aspect. However, our account strategist provided clear answers to the best of their ability for questions such as:

Q. Does smartprice work accountwise, are we smartpriced?
A. Yes it is accountwise. Your account does not appear smartpriced to my knowledge.

Further, it helped (psychologically) to have a human talk to us from Google and to have a personal contact. Perhaps, if in the future we get some automated (God forbid) cancellation notice by error or misunderstanding, this relationship can help.

They contacted me about a year ago and the guy had obviously done his homework. He came up with a diagram of the site and suggestions on how to improve revenue.

I'm good at writing for my website but hopeless at things like ad placement. I took up some suggestions and ignored others. My income increased significantly over the next month or so. I reckon it was due to taking some of his advice.

I would accept the opportunity with open arms. It's free and you are under no obligation to implement any ideas. Think about ti, they want you to increase your revenue for the purely selfish reason that it will improve theirs. Go for it.

Well, after 2 days I received my first email back with advice. It didn't apply to my site, I guess it was a canned piece of advice that he sends to everyone.

I remain optimistic, however...

I got a personalized "optimization suggestion" e-mail yesterday that told me I was using 120 x 600 skyscrapers on my site, and that I'd be better off with 160 x 600. That was useful information. (I've been using 160 x 600 wide skyscrapers on most sections of the site, but apparently I'd forgotten to update some of my old 120 x 600 ad code.)

Yeah, 120 x 600 is a bit too narrow to be taken seriously by many visitors. 160 x 600 is closer and similar to many image ads and navigation menus.
