Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Not sure if this should be in Google News or adwords. I guess this forum should really be the one for AdSense questions as it's about advertising.
Also, it seems that the site hangs in IE. Mozilla ( as usual ) works perfectly so use that.
Unlike the exising content targed ads you do not need 20 million visitors to put these ads on your site.
As an advertiser, I trust Google, AOL and the ilk - but definitely not 1000s of mom and pop sites. Isn't this the reason for the non-popularity of CPC programs with merchants at various affiliate networks?
Thankfully, AdWords advertisers can disable Content Network syndication.
So all the people who were asking about how to run content-targeted ads and who didn't have a huge site: Now's your chance! Give it a try. :)
If your site is not yet in our index, it may take a few hours or more before we are able to crawl your site and serve the most relevant AdWords ads. In this case, we will display public service ads, for which you will not receive earnings, until we are able to crawl your pages
Is this also a quick way into the index? :)

Oh, and like other ad networks - what does it show as "default" ads? Can you choose your own default ad?
And is there a handy system of allowing people to advertise on your site - click through to Google Ads - and get a small commission for the referral? ;)

Maybe I missed it on the FAQ, but would be great if one could have a geographical opt-in/out as publisher showing ads.
My main target is Europe. I would not mind showing ads for certain pages to the Americans though.
It would save me filtering out European targetted ads per url and would save me from suprises on new European advertisers.
I'll try to stop before I sound like a total salesperson, but I've seen it working on the site of a WebmasterWorld member, and it's really sweet. The member's site is very high-quality (the aim is to accept blue-ribbon sites), but it appeals to a narrow segment--so it could be hard to chase down advertisers. We serve up ads exactly matched for that website, so it works really well for them. :)
