Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
A nice change is the ability to see how much you are making via CPM ads:
We now offer more detailed reports about the type of ad targeting you're displaying on your pages. See how much of your traffic is viewing site-targeted CPM ads and how much is viewing contextually-targeted CPC ads. To view separate reports for contexual targeting and site targeting, visit your Advanced Reports page, choose AdSense for content as the product, and click the checkbox marked Show data by targeting type - contextual or site. Then generate a report as usual.
Although I don't see the show data by targeting type checkbox they mention.
I would hate it though if I am creating tens of ad unit codes with only one difference like channel name for example.
They do run beta testing groups before launching don't they?
I would love to be able to see those site targetted ads so that perhaps I could see WHY they are performing so poorly, particularly since my traffic is pretty high quality.
It looks like you already have your answer, but here's the official response to your question:
To determine whether site-targeted cost-per-thousand-impression ads are appearing on your site, visit your Advanced Reports page. When you choose AdSense for content as the product, and show data by Individual Ad Unit, you'll see a checkbox titled 'Show data by targeting type - contextual or site.' When you check this box, you'll be able to see how many site-targeted ads you're displaying on your pages.
How do I get site targeted ads off my sites?
I always thought that G always showed the ads with the greatest earnings potential. This is just not the case.
In an ad unit I have with just one ad block over two months the site ads are only 25% of the contextual ads.
Am I missing something here?
