Have any of you adsense publishers noticed a slight update to the home screen on the new adsense interface (v3)? Looks like they changed the earnings display and payment information to one screen. Looks good!
Only had it one day last week, then turned back to the "usual new interface". I liked it.
It displayed exactly what I wanted to see on my home page (day earnings, month, payment info and some other stuff) everything ok, but without some css styles (text, titles and h's in black). I even pressed F5 several times to see if there was some error but no.
Not sure why they've added an extra step to the summary report on the main page. It used to be just a drop-down list, now you have to click "edit" first to get the drop-down list. I can't see the point since it used to remember what you had set it to anyway, without the extra clicks.
Remember when I asked for your feedback on the new AdSense interface? One of the main pieces of feedback was to have relevant charts showing on the home page. We listened and now will be showing you earnings for today, yesterday, and a few other measurements. See today's blog post for more info, and thanks so much for your feedback :)
One more comment on the new interface -- I think that the red warning box that comes up at the top of the home page (mine's telling me that unauthorised sites have shown my ads) is a great idea, but I would like a "close" option so that I can dismiss the message after I've attended to it. Otherwise I will eventually tune out the red box and might not notice if it's showing a new warning.
Pagination of results has to go! Very annoying. Or provide reasonably large options. (Such as infinite!)
No sign of "both" option showing data by channel and day/date, major shortcoming. It's clear Google considers it undesirable to allow review of data on a daily basis over a large period of time, like a year. So now a publisher will have to snapshot data on a daily basis.
Most of the recent changes are trivial and cosmetic.
Impression statistics for CPM ads are meaningless. All we can see is how poorly CPM pays versus CPC. (At least for highly targeted content intensive sites)
The graphs are mostly eye candy. (Should be close-able!). We need graphs of all Mondays for the year, all Tuesdays for the year etc. (Typically done with Pivot Tables in spreadsheets.) Each day of the week ads so much noise to the data the graphs are mostly noise.
"Report Issue" has been posted for all these issues and more. I truly dislike losing functionality in the guise of the "new interface". It's mostly eye candy, sorry.
