AdSense Feature I'd Like to See

I'd like to filter Ads out by country

We have filters for specific advertisers but none for specific country of origin.

I'd like to be able to filter out ads from China.

It's very frustrating seeing advertisements for "on topic" products on my sites, but where the advertisers literally wants orders in the 100,000's.

Yes, the filter limit of 200 precludes that option.

Hopefully it might boost my CTR to something like former levels.

Of course I'm not holding my breath.

I'd like to see

- revenue share percentage in the report area without having to CPC placement bid on my own sites

- possibility for separation of clicks by language area and countries/territories in the reports

- each ad and page becomes automatically a separate channel in the reports and maximum channels is increased to unlimited (this because of the changes in Adwords from site targeting to placement targeting)

- number of invalid clicks and separation of them by language area and countries/territories

to start with.

>filter Ads out by country

I requested that feature in an email to support back in 2005. Probably they think it can affect network earnings, the same goes for an unlimited filter, forget it, you must be confusing the AdSense for the AdWords forum to even dream of such toys :-)

Number of invalid clicks and their ips list - so that we can see from which ips most invalid clicks and ban those ips in .htaccess file.

Another important feature we need - "Allowed Account" list - opp to revenue sharing - so that I can specify only my id will be used in my site. That is NO revenue sharing. If hackers put their adsense code then they will not get paid, advertisers will not be charged, I donot mind if I donot get paid.

My site based on Smarty/Joomla/other public open source templates which are hackable by experts despite of taking many security measures, updating regularly and those experts/gang put rotating adsense, fixed adsenese on remote country ips (where we cant monitor), etc..

Last time, they did hard trick, when showing different ads on a remote ip (we could see correct ad id in all our pcs), we were unable to find the existence of the intruder id in source file. Becuase they put their code like
define("SRC",str_replace("!","","5!1!1!2!8!...")); //our id
define("DST",str_replace("!","","9!2!3!3!3!....")); // their id
so a normal search cant find their id in source file. We had to check hundreads of source file manually!

I'd just settle for a bigger filter and then I will promise never to bother Google again.

I will shutup too (for now) if I can ban advertisers by account not just domain.

>"Allowed Account" list
Check your AdSense Setup tab, it's there.

I'd like negative keywords (to improve the ad targeting on my sites).

I'd like to see that as well. However, the keyword that I thought was a problem for me (it certainly attracts a lot(!) of MFAs), doesn't appear to be. I put together a channel with all of the pages that contain that word, and it seems to earn only slightly less than the rest of the site. So, it isn't as much of a problem as I originally thought.

Still, I'd like to experiment with that as a negative keyword. It would certainly reduce the size of my filter.

I'd like to be able to change (at least) the font size
