Today I noticed in my asrep tool that it is no longer tracking adsense ads that are clicked on.....

After comparing notes with a few others....looks like things have changed in the Google code.

I used the tool a lot to find the MFAs to block.....

** UPDATE **

I just checked the statistics of my click tracker, and apparently SOME clicks (a minority, though) are still being recorded with their full target destination. What the heck is going on?

Possibly old JavaScript AS code being cached in users' browsers.

zett, if you read my earlier posts, you'll probably get an answer to your question.

improved statistics should help small publishers whose traffic converts by attracting more advertisers to the network and making those small publishers stand out from the crowd.

I agree.

By making specific sites visible to advertisers, it becomes feasible for advertisers to run ads where they want to, and not run them where they don't want to.

Any high quality site which is tightly focused on a specific niche should benefit, once the new tools are available -- including sites that don't necessarily have high conversion rates, if they have high quality content that provides a good environment for building brand awareness.

The losers will be sites with poorly converting traffic, as well as sites that don't provide a desirable media environment for advertisers.

All of this may be a little painful for some publishers in the short run, but it is going to be good news for publishers who already meet the above criteria, or who work hard at adapting to the new environment.

Any fixes for this yet? My cpm is dropping as more MFA sites are infiltrating my site and I can not block them!
