Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I'll give you some background info, just so you know what to expect. Just like with GoogleGuy and AdWordsAdvisor, AdSenseAdvisor is going to be a single person. They'll have their own style of posting. We're going to keep ASA's identity anonymous in case they want to go on vacation, or if we ever need to switch to a different person in a pinch. ASA volunteered to stop by in their limited free time (mostly during work hours), so don't expect a ton of posts, especially at the beginning.
ASA might start out pretty slowly to get a feel for things, and don't expect posts on things that are really future-looking, technical or controversial. The person serving in this role is quite familiar with AdSense because they're a tech writer for the group. But they're not an engineer and not a techie, so I would expect more answers to basic questions or confirming things when people are mostly sure but maybe not positive and a word from a Googler would help. Also, ASA will spend most of their time here trying to answer questions that apply to everyone, so please avoid things along the lines of "AdSenseAdvisor, please help me!"--posts like that are even against the forum charter, I think, to keep the discussion helpful to everyone.
That's about it for now; I'll post if there's something I forgot to add. One more thing to bear in mind: I know just about everyone knows this, but please be friendly. Except for a few very rare exceptions, the vast majority of members here go out of their way to be civil and polite to each other. And the mods do a fantastic job here to make sure that conversations are productive, constructive, and generally just a good place for everyone to hang out. This is someone who is volunteering their free time, so being nice to them is the surest way to keep them coming back to help out. In return, ASA will be happy to chime in when possible and pass feedback on to the AdSense team too.
So please join me in making AdSenseAdvisor feel welcome. Thanks everyone!
I have this mental image of you guys leaving the Googleplex at night and saying things like...'G'night GoogleGuy', 'G'night AdWordsAdvisor', 'G'night AdSense Advisor'.... a la the Waltons.
Anyhow, enjoy your time here.
Just missed pointing my browser to WebmasterWorld by a few hours and this new welcome change has happened. :)
Probably from now on, the feedback from WebmasterWorld will reach adsense team much fater than previously. Thats a positive thing for all adsense publishers participating in WebmasterWorld here!
Hope you will havea pleasant time. And also bring a thick skin, as it's about people getting money, and human nature being as it is, it makes people appear nastier then they really are. Let's remember he is here to help!
Hope you havea pleasant stay and will get to meet all the wonderfull people that come to this forum!
Oh off the topic again, welcome ASA.
