AdSense Channels Increased to 500

 8:34 am on Feb 8, 2009 (gmt 0)

jenstar has reported on her blog that adsense has quietly increased the number of url/custom channels to 500.

i am not seeing any extra channels available in my account. did anyone else get the increase?

Mine haven't increased.


 8:25 pm on Feb 8, 2009 (gmt 0)

Mine was increased to 500 several months back.

Still waiting for mine to increase unfortunately - and I was all excited for a minute.

Not happened my end either.
500 is still nowhere the amount needed.

Yes, mine has been increased to 500 as well last year

I think that one channel per page would be ideal, up to some limit, such as 2,000.

For years now, whenever I want to add AdSense to a new page, I go through my stats, and remove one of my lowest impression channels.

The thing is, I also remove the ad from that page, because I don't want to be wondering forever what is going on with that page's performance. Not getting that feedback is totally unacceptable. A whole bunch of pages with ZERO feedback? No way. Google would get their ads on many more of my pages, if they would give me more channels.

Stuck at 200, and wondering why. If Google wants to limit us to putting ads on just our best performing pages, this is one way to do it.

Does anyone know what the criteria is for getting more channels? It certainly doesn't seem to be based upon need.

Me too and I only use mine 99% for root urls (i.e. example.com).

I would need thousands if I tracked as many individual pages as some do, and I am not saying anything is wrong with that, it would be a very time-consuming excercise for me trying to analyse so many pages over so many sites.

Still only got 200 channels here. I wonder what the criteria is. Maybe you have to have been using more than X channels for more than Y months to get the stealth upgrade...

Woulkd LOVE more channels - currently using 130, but if more were available I'd change my set up.

I think the most ideal step would be for Adsense to let us, in some way, create dynamic channels. If this is not possible, let us view reports with the URL of our webpage from where the clicks happened. Channels would become irrelevant then, and the need would also be satisfied.


 10:33 am on Feb 14, 2009 (gmt 0)

I use about 70 atm, but need over 10k to be of any use.


 11:08 am on Feb 14, 2009 (gmt 0)

I do not understand why some are getting 500 and others not. I still have 200


 10:33 pm on Feb 14, 2009 (gmt 0)

I confirm: mine was increased to 500 (I have no idea when, must be recent)


 2:13 am on Feb 15, 2009 (gmt 0)

I was upgraded to 500 today or yesterday :)
I had only 4 channels left, so I received 300 more just on time.


 11:20 am on Feb 15, 2009 (gmt 0)

Ditto supergml. I was upgraded yesterday and at the time I only had 4 of my 200 left. Maybe Google is using the amount of channels used as a criteria for prioritising the upgrading of accounts? I don't know.


 2:14 pm on Feb 15, 2009 (gmt 0)

After my previous post, I've now been updated to 500 channels.

Ditto! Maybe the G folks are reading this thread.

I'm curious - for those who have now got 500 channels - how many were you using before? Were you really close to the previous (and sadly for me, still current) maximum of 200 channels?


 7:30 pm on Feb 16, 2009 (gmt 0)

In our case, the increase came somewhere middle of 2008 -- and we were only using about 60 channels, nowhere near the 200

As many of you have discovered, we're working on some things with channels. I posted the following to a different thread:

We’ve been experimenting with more channels for a small set of publishers. Thanks in large part to your feedback, we’re trying to extend this test to more publishers, especially those who we know are already using channels most heavily. The reason we can’t just roll this out to everyone is that we need to make sure that our ad serving and reporting continues to run smoothly.

Thanks ASA for the update - and yes, more channels will be a very good thing!


 5:23 am on Feb 18, 2009 (gmt 0)

Got an email today from adSense and the upgrade to 500 channels. I was using 200 so the additional are useful.


 6:00 am on Feb 18, 2009 (gmt 0)

Got also an email yesterday, because my 200 had been used up to the last, they increase to 500


 3:14 pm on Feb 18, 2009 (gmt 0)

WAITING for my email, although I spose it doesn't matter yet, because Google can't figure out why my existing channels won't import into Ad Manager.


 6:55 pm on Feb 18, 2009 (gmt 0)

Yep. Got my email (UK) yesterday. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou!
