Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
This would be VERY useful to me.
1 cent per click is a joke! There should be a minimum of 5 cent.
There should be more payment options such as moneybookers, paypal and a free choice of Bank accounts not limited to only 1 country.
Authority sites with a certain age and rich, quality content deserve a better service than MFA sites.
Quit nagging me about consolidating my accounts. It's annoying on the level of a panhandler who won't stop pestering, no matter how many times you tell them no.
It's been a few months now, I'm happy with the way things are for me with the logins. Quit asking me already. How many times do I have to say no before you understand no?
Seriously, I'm happy with the way it is. I don't want the hassle associated with consolidating things. Let me do it MY way.
I really don't care how granular it can be set as long as I can set it. The more granular it can be done, the better I guess although then I guess the objection of Google that we might abuse it would start.
As a proposal to make sure MFAs can't use it to do arbitrage: make sure adwords customers can't buy their traffic cheaper than they can sell it. (actually: since arbitragers are bad for the user experience: cap their revenue at e.g. 50% of what they paid for the traffic) I'm sure google has enough knowledge to link adsense and adwords account together.
A visitor is worth more than US$ 0.01 to me so for that amount I simply don't want to let them go off (and certainly not on an obvious scam).
And I don't want a visitor to see (let alone click) on obvious scams.
Farmboy, why is it a crutch to have more control over what you have on your site?
I really don't see a way it could be ABUSED by publishers since it is already being done. We've been doing it for years. It's called REMOVING Adsense on low Adsense CPM pages and REPLACING them with other methods, diredct sales or affiliates! If nothing else REMEMBER THIS: "To GAd even a penny is better than NOTHING at all". This is good business practice for G, but a conflict of interest and NOT necessarily in YOUR best interest. To you and me, we'd rather take the chance of a low CPM Adsense ad page converting through an affiliate for a lot more, etc. I can't believe they haven't implemented this feature yet, since with us, Adsense is probably losing money BIG TIME BECAUSE of NOT IMPLEMENTING it. All they need to do is, like with the public service ads option, have an alternate URL to display our alternate ads when the CPM is going to drop below the designated level per page.
Early on we reviewed the CPMs per page and aything below a certain level for a month was switched to another, higher paying ad method. Every now and then we switch the highest traffic pages back and see if they do better, which ocassionally they do. It's a pain in the butt monitoring and re-writing code, but... it's a living.
Sellers determining the asking price and buyers determining of the bidding price seems to work well enough for the stock market.
Please, please let the folks at AdSense know we need a way we can block words or phrases! Using the code "google_ad_section_start" etc. does not work. I've had to take AdSense off of several articles because Adsense picks up on a specific word that can have more than one meaning.
It's not a matter of earnings. I just think it looks bad to my visitors when there are ads that don't fit the topic.
