Google AdLinks

Who wants to be the first to let us know what the earnings are on these suckers? I'm too scared to try them myself, but may be interested.

On a further note, could these updates explain why the bot hasn't updated my ads on a new page in sometime? I set up a new site and one of the pages is still receiving targeting that is about another one of my domains.

Ex: my other site is about A on domainA.com, this is about B on domainB.com, on domainB.com on the index.html I am getting ads about A. They are not even related at all. Any suggestions?

Already implemented across 16 sites, let you know as soon as soon as any information available.

I haven't replaced anything, it fits nicely at the top of my left navigation.

Well I've just uploaded a simple page about 'Blue Widgets' with the AdLink code but alls I get at the moment is the 'View Ads About:' Search box.

I may try in a minute to apply the code to an established page.

Mine are functioning perfectly. Obviously I don't know how well they are doing, but they are serving 5 very well targeted categories.

I'm assuming these count as an "ad unit" for the purposes of the Google "3 ad units per page" limit, but I haven't gone through the rules and checked yet. Until I read otherwise, I'll assume this to be the case.

EDIT - I just checked again and it looks like you are in fact allowed 3 Adsense units plus one Adlinks unit on any page.

I've just added AdLinks to one of my sites. Too soon to know how it will pan out as it was only minutes ago.

I also created new channels for Adlinks to see if placement location will have any effect.

AdsenseAdvisor, can you give some more information about AdLinks?

What happens when a user clicks on one of the adlinks? Does he gets redirected to some sort of Google page with Adsense ads?

Just applied it to my second most visited webpage - fantastic results in terms of ads displayed. I'll just have to wait and see what happens with increased $$$ (or should I say now I have new direct payment)!

I love the way there is no URL or Description. Adlinks can be inserted direct in content to look like a menu. I expect some high CTR over the next 2 weeks, my frequent visitors have likely become immune to the Classic Style Adsense Ads.

I'm assuming you can click on the links in that box yourself because it just redirects you to another google page with a list of ads. I wouldn't think we would get paid unless you clicked on a link in that 2nd page.

Does anyone know where the links land? I get two word phrases and wonder if they are advertisers or if it goes to the G search engine. :)

edit: Sorry, just saw someone else ask this?

I think we are going to see good click throughs to the ad pages. Then, with all those choices, we'll probably see the second necessary click - and maybe several, if they treat the ad page as a hub of interest.

This might be a stupid question, but, where is the information on this? Searching Google for "adlinks", "ad-links", "ad-link", etc. turns up nothing useful.

So can we click on the links to see the page of ads without getting booted?

True. The impressions that the adlink code on your site generates doesn't get reported either, only the 2nd page impressions when someone clicks on one of the adlinks topics.

A click on say 'Blue Widget' AdLink must take the visitor direct to the advertiser's URL. If it was a SERP style advert page, our earning could be dire.

This is a very important question. I'd love to see the ad page but am too scared to try it!

I just saw an example of one. It leads to a blank page with a vertical column of Google adwords ads related to the link you clicked on. Ugly. I don't see this as being a good thing for us. First the user has to click the link, then click on an ad. Not planning on trying this one out.

Go to your account ---> Ad Settings----> Down to "Ad type"

I, for one, am not clicking on any of the stinkin' links come Hell or high water. Let somehow else find out the hard way!

Nooooo - don't say AdLinks are too good to be true!

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 10+ Year Member



Me too (too scared to click on one of the links). I suppose we'll eventually find out if we can, or we will bump into AdLinks somewhere else other than our own sites.

It seems (I am not sure) akin to the searchbox, where performing a search is okay (I think), while it is not okay to click on the ads that accompany the search results.

One thing that I've noticed is that it gives a clue of what the mediabot thinks the page is all about. I've got a page or two where the bot is totally wrong.

Can someone who knows of a search term on Google that 'could' lead me to a webpage that has new 'AdLinks' on please provide that search term?

I don't want to click on my own ads but I need to see them in Action.

You mean you want to see my site. That's the only one I know having the adlinks.

Yes, users will be brought to a page containing related ads for the Ad Links topic they click on.

So can we click on the links to see the page of ads without getting booted? This is a very important question. I'd love to see the ad page but am too scared to try it!

Your reports won't track clicks made on the Ad Links topics. Only clicks on the Google ads linked from the Ad Links topics will be tracked. However, impressions are reported for each instance of the Ad Link unit as well as for each pageview of the resulting page that displays ads, so I wouldn't recommend clicking on your Ad Links topics to avoid

Thanks CheeseburgerBrown - I found that 'Miscellaneous Random' site :-)

I'M VERY DISAPOINTED. I doubt I will be using AdLinks on most of my pages now. I expect a lot of visitors to click the initial AdLinks Ad, but then click the "Back" button on their browser.

VERY DISAPOINTED...

Well, I've stuck AdLinks on three experimental pages -- one of which runs targetted AdSense and other two of which run PSAs.

I'll give them a week for novelty factor, and then maybe a week after that to see how it settles out. If it can cause a PSA page to have earning power, even meagre earning power, it's an improvement. But so far I can't see a very compelling reason to run AdLinks in concert with AdSense.

I'll see how my tiny experimental pool pans out.

If they click the "back" button they're back on your site where they can still click a regular ad.
