Now, are there any free scripts like this available?
And also, what's keeping Google from offering detailed reports like this?
Isn't it beneficial to both Adsense and it's publishers?
Clickfraud reporting, optimizing ads and placement,... wise.
The reason for limiting the number of blocked ad URLs isn't different. That's the stage 2 of inventory protection. So that even if you track the most money making ads, you can't block more than 200 low paying URLs. (Even though that's not the intention of the block list)
I've read quite a few mention asrep as a good one - they even have a free version, limited in reporting though but still - you could try it out. I find a bit confusing to use, but I guess you'll get use to it by time.
I would like to know from your guys, what tracking you use - don't care much about the price as long as it's good.
Having said that, I have found one of them useful for knowing what ads are clicked, but the ones I've looked at all have the limitation that they can't tell you what ads were clicked on from an adlinks results page. If a high percentage of your clicks are via adlinks then the data is useless.
None of them have the ability to tell you how much you earn per click, so using one of them to determine low payers is still guesswork.
I don't believe you can tell what ads (apart from MFA's of course) generate poor payments. In any case, dumping a poor paying non-MFA ad is likely to lead to a poorer paying non-MFA ad.
Of course, there is no epc or other price data that can be mined.
