I talked to Brett and Jenstar, the AdSense forum moderator, and they both agreed that it would be good to have a Googler come in from time to time and try to answer questions. Please join me in welcoming AdSenseAdvisor to this forum.

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!

After quietly watching the Google folks work in Chicago this week, I have a fairly high respect for the risks they take here.

> google guys and we could organize a football match

I'm waiting for FroogleDude and GoogleLabsGeek10 as we speak ;-)

I'm waiting for "FroogleSpawn - son of GoogleGuy".

That would be very Lord of the Rings.

Welcome!

A very welcome addition to the community.

Adsense has become something that people care about very much indeed, and has improved the lives of a good number of webmasters.

I think adsense is unique in the way it can almost single handedly turn a part-time webmaster into a full-time one, and in the long run will enable people from all walks of life to earn a piece of the internet pie... I hope that Adsense helps bridge the digital divide and if your role as AdSenseAdvisor facilitates in any small way I will take my hat off to you.

Welcome again. :)

Welcome aboard ASA.

You guys (and gals) over there at Google sure know how to get things done. I found this at #1 [webmasterworld.com...]

Looking forward to learning how it's done. :-)

>"A couple more of you google guys and we could organize a football match"
We would so lose. ;) Every intramural sport league that I remember us participating in, we always seem to have a losing season--including in hockey, so it's not for lack of practice. :) Oh well; we do have fun though. <

What, real football? Or that one where fat people in helmets fall over a lot?

Welcome ASA to WW, in a week or two you will feel like you are surrounded by friends!

It is a great place to hang out, but try to get a bit of work done, your employer might get narked otherwise :)

And that is what it is all about.

I coached a softball team at <major defense contractor> about 20 years ago and I had the hardest time explaining to the team members (every week) that the beer and pizza party should be AFTER the game.

We had a 1 and 11 season and an 0 and 12 season.

Perhaps the Google team needs to be told --

"No computers or PDAs on the field."

and

"No new algos during the game."

Welcome to WebmasterWorld ASA.

Welcome aboard!

Its refreshing to see Google reachout proactively to the core of its "fan base." Can't wait to get the scoop on things.
