jenstar has reported on her blog that adsense has quietly increased the number of url/custom channels to 500.

i am not seeing any extra channels available in my account. did anyone else get the increase?

I think that one channel per page would be ideal, up to some limit, such as 2,000.

For years now, whenever I want to add AdSense to a new page, I go through my stats, and remove one of my lowest impression channels.

The thing is, I also remove the ad from that page, because I don't want to be wondering forever what is going on with that page's performance. Not getting that feedback is totally unacceptable. A whole bunch of pages with ZERO feedback? No way. Google would get their ads on many more of my pages, if they would give me more channels.

Stuck at 200, and wondering why. If Google wants to limit us to putting ads on just our best performing pages, this is one way to do it.

Does anyone know what the criteria is for getting more channels? It certainly doesn't seem to be based upon need.

Me too and I only use mine 99% for root urls (i.e. example.com).

I would need thousands if I tracked as many individual pages as some do, and I am not saying anything is wrong with that, it would be a very time-consuming excercise for me trying to analyse so many pages over so many sites.

Still only got 200 channels here. I wonder what the criteria is. Maybe you have to have been using more than X channels for more than Y months to get the stealth upgrade...

I think the most ideal step would be for Adsense to let us, in some way, create dynamic channels. If this is not possible, let us view reports with the URL of our webpage from where the clicks happened. Channels would become irrelevant then, and the need would also be satisfied.

I was upgraded to 500 today or yesterday :)
I had only 4 channels left, so I received 300 more just on time.

Ditto supergml. I was upgraded yesterday and at the time I only had 4 of my 200 left. Maybe Google is using the amount of channels used as a criteria for prioritising the upgrading of accounts? I don't know.

I'm curious - for those who have now got 500 channels - how many were you using before? Were you really close to the previous (and sadly for me, still current) maximum of 200 channels?

In our case, the increase came somewhere middle of 2008 -- and we were only using about 60 channels, nowhere near the 200

As many of you have discovered, we're working on some things with channels. I posted the following to a different thread:

We’ve been experimenting with more channels for a small set of publishers. Thanks in large part to your feedback, we’re trying to extend this test to more publishers, especially those who we know are already using channels most heavily. The reason we can’t just roll this out to everyone is that we need to make sure that our ad serving and reporting continues to run smoothly.

Got an email today from adSense and the upgrade to 500 channels. I was using 200 so the additional are useful.

WAITING for my email, although I spose it doesn't matter yet, because Google can't figure out why my existing channels won't import into Ad Manager.
