Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Obviously this was very easy for me to track down since they were from my privacy pages which very few people, in reality, ever visit.
Checking the ads I saw a couple of "legal" type of ads, fair enough it is a legal page, however knowing there are so few visits to these pages and obviously very few clicks, I doubt that they will ever get to the minimum click volume.
So my question is will Google ever get paid for these ads if they never achieve the minimum required?
What are the minimum amount of impressions for the advertiser to be charged and the publisher to be paid, 10, 100, 1,000?
Hmmm...do I now have to consider disabling CPM ads to avoid such ads on low volume pages?
Excuse the silly question but why would anyone want to put ads on a privacy page?
Ah...it uses the same template header.inc for all pages therefore I can switch all ads on or off if required with one file upload. The same applies to the lhs navigation as well with its AdLinks block, one file and all are replaced sitewide.
A lot easier than find and replace:-)
Yeah OFF is a good position for Google's version of hybrid CPM.
Does one still have to write to Google to switch these off?
Checked the entire AdSense site, nothing, then the search here at WebmasterWorld and can't find any other answer but to write in.
i did not think we could have ads on pages like privacy pages and a few others
me too! I use the same as huskypup, an included header and footer but I add pages to be excluded like this
if ($adsense == "on")# switch is in my config file
if(!strstr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], "sitemap.php") &&
$ads = 'insert ad code here';
$ads = "";
works perfect for me
