Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Another interesting thing is the CTR for other channels on the site didn't decrease that much. That means I wasn't going to get the other clicks anyway. (That makes me feel a little better...)
I should have a few clicks from yesterday's channel reports by tomorrow. I will updaed you with the numbers.
First results are quite impressive after 6 hours of use (two days ago), excellent CTR and CPM. Also my overall earnings are 30% larger. So I assume that it has something to do with these new ads. More information in next few days...
I thought the ad links were basically keywords. Clicking on them should give you a list of advertisers who use that keyword on adwords...but in my case some advertisers don't have anything to do with the ad link, even the language is diferent....
Let's see what happens soon.
But I can't imagine putting something like this on my site without checking what kinds of ads I'm getting. Hopefully they will soon find a way we can check without clicking on our links.
I'm sure clicking on the actual links to the advertisers' sites would be against TOS.
I'm only trying AdLinks on sites where regular AdSense doesn't work. I didn't have enough in my stats from two days ago to judge how it's going. Tomorrow I should be able to get a better idea.
10 Adwords listed on a white page as follows.
Ads By Google
Kids Widget Toys
Get great toy widgets for kids
So it looks like a search page with less information and gives the visitor an option of selecting from 10 different ads.
Someone posted they had #*$!x amount of impressions and only xx amount of clicks. This is okay if your adsense is still producing clicks. It could be sheer placement on the site, color scheme etc.
I have found the click income from my adlinks page to be higher than regular adsense ads (but it is too soon to tell if this is a trend).
Actually, I did notice a boost in the first 24 hours of putting an Adlink on my most used page - but it drifted back to normal within a day.
So, I removed the adlinks and put adsense back up.
If it's not showing links on my index, it can't possibly work on the rest of my pages.
Why would it only show one link?
I just exchanged a some ads on a different site with the adlinks... we'll see how that works out later on. Also would be nice to have more than one day under my belt to make an educated decision.
Added: I can't say I'm very impressed with the quality of the links either, showing Christmas reated links in March :(
This is a brand new start.
IMO having read the posts it obviously will depend on the nature of the ads and the vertical channel they display.
However, I do feel that the display of the results could be better implemnted to achieve far greater clickthroughs. The list looks very cold and hardly inviting.
I think I will wait on this thread before adding to my sites!
Thursday's figures were well up therefore it will be interesting to see what channels brings tomorrow.
Here's what I don't like about adlinks. It feels like spam.
All my Ads are well on target. Very impressed so far and there is no compulsion for the visitor to actually click on the Ad Links results is there?
