I've been seeing "You can now show ads from external Google-certified ad networks on your pages" on my adsense control panel for a while.

I'm probably going to give it a shot to see if it gives a boost or not.

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this.

thanks

How would we know? I don't disable anything and I did better in 17 days than I did all last year. But I couldn't point to the ad networks as being the reason.

How would we know?

1. Does this mean that all the stats of the 3rd party ads are blended in with the regular AdSense stats? I recently pulled Chitika because they removed all the click stats, CTR stats, and EPC stats. Unacceptable.

2. Is it true that Google wants us to use these ads, but will not show their performance? Also unacceptable. If so, they may be doing it for the same reason as Chitika - they don't dare show us the actual performance, because it is so poor. This is the only reason that I can imagine.

3. Is it true that all the 3rd party ads are CPM, or are some CPC? Any CPA?

4. Is there any way to know WHICH 3rd party we are getting ads from?

5. Or is blind faith required? (no ad source revealed, no ad types revealed, no stats reporting).

Now you've hit it. AdSense is what it is.

These changes apply solely to image ads and do not include text ads although this was never clearly communicated to publishers. Advertisers paying CPM (cost per thousand impressions) are not known to pay that well at least for me although Iíve read of other marketers earning more in CPMs than CPC.
