I got one - it looked real and I took the survey - it never asked for any personal info like my password, SS#, account nos. or anything crazy like that.

It's real... I received the email invitation yesterday & participated... Here's the "Drawing Rules" on Google's own web site:

I took this survey twice (2007 and 2006) and never received anything. Last time also it was iPod. Be careful after survey you may find huge deep in your income ;)

Leosghost: This is a very common usage in "American" english.
Many American businesses hold a public drawing to give away prizes.
It may not be the Queen's english, but it passes as acceptable in the states.

Got one here too. I always preferred to stay off the radar with Adsense...didn't bother with it.

Received several invites in the past. Always ignored them.
1. What can be expected at best? An improvement on product level, e.g. better, bigger filters, etc. If Google wanted to collect publisher input for new features, WW would be the right place for this. ASA is steadily collecting input (even though he went from weekly to monthly to twice a year). *grin*
2. And at worst? You could be identified as an Adsense critic who deserves a smaller eCPM or EPC.
I'm with LostOne on this - better not interact with the Adsense, unless 100% necessary.

My impression (from someone that took the survey) is that it mostly seems to focus and what other sources of advertising one has on their site.

This has just happened to me, I assume Himalayaswater meant "deep" to mean "drop" or "deep drop" . I will not take the survey in the future. I see about a 25% drop. I have not had time to look at my stats to see if it is traffic drop or what.

|Here's your chance to tell us how to make AdSense even better. |
I say save the ipod, spend more time reading Webmaster World.

Google has been told many times, by many people what they need to do regarding AdSense publisher's needs. Google refuses to implement those changes. It is a waste of time to tell them in the hope that you will get an "iPod". Feedback to Googe is a waste of time. Google does as Google wishes. Publishers can be damed.
