AdSense Competitive Ad Filter Limit Raised to 500
One of your Top 5 requests (quietly) launched

Top 5 Adsense Publisher Requests
1. Minimum CPC
2. More channels
3. Block ads by keyword
4. Bigger competitive filter
5. Smart pricing information

Check your account. We have more than doubled your number of filters (to 500).

Please don't go crazy with this. The reason we're not announcing it on the blog is that we don't want to overload our system with everyone filling their filters to capacity at once.

Huge thanks go to the awesome engineering team that implemented this for us (I'm an AdSense publisher, too, after all).

Please feel free to leave love letters to our engineers below.

ASA

I wasn't aware that more filters could increase the load on Adsense servers so much.

I don't use the current limit but thanks for addressing one of the top five concerns.

wow!

I am bowing to the Buddha that sits on my Google fridge in my office.

Kicking my ruby slippers together and chanting, "there's no place like AdSense, there's no place like AdSense!

Don't worry I won't abuse the limits, besides slowing the server down I am sure it delays ad serving also.

Can we have block ads by keyword function next?

Things I would like to block:

kids
free
games
xbox
playstation
teens
diet
christian moms who make a boatload of money while working at home
yellow teeth
stimulus checks and grants
scams of all types

I doubt scams use the keyword "scam" ;)

My competitive filter is empty (gave up on micromanaging that a long time ago) but I'm glad Adsense is addressing a concern that was in the top requests.

Thank you, even though I have hardly anything in my adsense filter.

Could this be the reason stats seem a little off today perhaps?

Thank you so much.
This is a great start.
However, with the amount of spam out there waiting to get on our sites we still need your help and more help.

PS.
I'm surprised that blocking by advertiser account isn't on the top 5 list.

Ok Icedowl,

You got me with the wrinkle cream, 52 just slipping a bit.

oh and who can forget:

the get rich quick guy posing in front of his car (that guy is like a virus)

And totally the most obnoxious

But wait, there's more! Now how much would you pay? Only today we are going to give you not one but two!-!-!

I've got only 14 domains in my filter. Can I sell my 486 unused slots to somebody else? :-)

Been years since I used the competitive filter and even then, it was for only a handful of sites. For my sites, blocking was a waste of time and actually hurt the bottom line.

Drat

I had my girlfriend start a company and get an AdSense account and then gave her half my websites. That is how I expanded the filter on my own, betya she doesn't want to give them back now. We are only using about 60 slots in each filter presently, much better than a year ago when they were both full. I think they have done quite a good job of cleaning up lately.

See kissing up again!

I still only see 200 channels, and cannot locate any of the new changes. I have even rebooted the PC.

Why me ? Why is it always me ? LOL

as I look at my site which has as its main phrase a two word statement(don't wish to state it as it might be breach of TOS of WebmasterWorld) and see it covered in irrelevant ads, where adwords advertisers have stupidly decided to pay for ads on any site with one of the two names and there is no way for me to prevent the ads showing.

eg.

my site is about dog toys,
I get ads for balls amic vinegar

ok, #*$!ty example, but you get the message. If I could just ban ads from sites about amic or vinegar, i'd be fine.

its bad for the advertiser and for the publisher that I can not ban such ads.

As a result of course, my click through and conversion rates are miniscule, and probably I am getting smart priced.

I've filled up my competitive ad filter, and still they keep coming.

I wish to be excited, but am underwhelmed.

nippi,
Until we get the tools needed to filter keywords and advertiser by id, problems which you have described will never go away.
