This morning I recognized pages for reports on referrals need up to 30 seconds to render with high CPU activities on my desktop, I switched to a laptop but rendering was still very slow. I called some else to check this out, in short he came up with this: This page is about 4.200kB, one big (product selector) script which includes also 5000 descriptions of CPA ads.
This raises a lot of questions, the most interesting may be, do they pre select CPA ads for us?

Yes, if you leave the box checked by:

Pick best performing ads
Your chosen ads may not always show

If you only want your selected ads to show then uncheck that box.

Google offers a $7,50 bounty if someone signs up for an expensive webhosting package with one of their advertisers.

At the same time our own advertisers offer between $50 and $75
per sale.

Apart from that, many ads look fairly targeted to our site.

“Pick best performing ads

Actually I was only viewing a report for referrals, may be the first question should be does someone else experience such a long time for rendering a reports for referral page? In the meantime this page has grown to 5MB with 6000 available referrals.

I think, not all publishers have access to all the Referral ads. They are being offerred by Publisher location and traffic origin., I think.

Google has preselected some ads for me which are not availabe in the referral list on the adsense interface.

AND I got a CONVERSION on one of the automatic selected ads. It may be noted that I did not select these ads for which I got a conversion, so maybe G does know best as to what to dispaly. After all they have tons of data to mine, while a publisher has only very limited data and some instinctive understanding of the website.
