I'm very curious about what the "Google Testing Network" is? I have not seen an explaination of that one anywhere, maybe I just missed it.
Beyond that, they (ASA?) said this was going to be rolled out slowly, so who knows if it's even affecting a given site yet?
Anyone know a way to tell for sure?
My site has continued to grow and grow, but my Adsense earnings have been less and less. VERY frustrating that I am giving Google more impression now than when I was earning much more money.
I haven't blocked any of the networks - don't block anything at all, for that matter.
Good question. Anybody know the answer?
The only way I know is to check when the destination URL doesn't match the display URL, type the destination URL into Google and if it is from an ad network usually there will be some posts about the URL somewhere.
Why do some of you block the ad networks?
For me, two reasons...
1: If Google cannot be bothered to inform us what each of them target/cater for, then I cannot be bothered to accept them.
2: Sites that were previously banned by Google can now appear via the backdoor by using one of the other networks. No thanks.
Maybe a new Ad network kicked in for those days, maybe Google was testing something. My CTR was a half a point higher too.
Adsense needs to be more user friendly.
A week ago I had nine listed, now it's just the Google Testing Network and one other.
Same for me. I had all the networks blocked, there were 9 if I recall right, now just 2.
What is the Google Testing Network anyhow? Anyone know for sure?
