From todays Inside AdSense email.

Starting in October, the +1 button will begin to appear on display ads on your site.

Although you won’t receive any revenue for +1 button clicks, ...

If you’d prefer not to allow the use of +1 features and social annotations on display ads on your pages, you can opt out starting today by signing in to your account at google.com/adsense.

OK, I disabled it. After thinking about it why would I give Giggle more free exposure on something of theirs?

We have a business relationship. I give them ad space, they give me money. P*mping out my ad space for their benefit only with nothing in it for me isn't cool.

Finally got an email from Google that explains the +1 Ads a little more. Really seems ill conceived and smells of desperation. Even on Google's homepage, this little childlike arrow appears to promote +1. I normally like most things Google does, but this is a bit like polishing the brass on the Titanic.

Isn't this a surfire way to get google blocked in corporate networks?

I get that with other ad networks already and with social networking buttons.

Doesn't makes sense. Even + button doesn't look better than 'Like' thing. Do they don't have belief in page-rank system now?


They are afraid of Facebook. Very afraid. Many things we don't know but they sure do. Facebook is a clear and present danger for the goog... so they are trying to shove google+ down every ones throats. Quite funny actually...

System: The following message was spliced on to this thread from: http://www.webmasterworld.com/google_adsense/4365802.htm [webmasterworld.com] by incredibill - 3:38 am on Sep 22, 2011 (PST -8)


I just got this email from AdSense:

In the next month, we'll introduce the +1 button and personal recommendations to display ads. The +1 button will begin to appear on AdSense for Content and AdSense for Mobile Content display ad formats -- image, animated gif, and Flash. +1s will be one additional signal to help determine an ad's relevance and we'll continue to show the ads that will generate the most revenue for you.

We previously launched the +1 button on Google search and for publisher sites to make it easier for people to share and discover content across the web. Soon, your users will be able to endorse specific ads and make the ads more likely to appear to their social connections. We believe that these recommendations could help your readers notice ads on your site more, leading to higher returns for you over time.


Are they kidding? +! for ADVERTISEMENTS that most people ignore. Does G really think they will be RATED instead? Crazy.

At least there's gping to be an option to opt-out.

Not only is page-rank nearly useless now but they don't believe in measuring the value of a page on its own merit anymore, it's all about connections and outside influences and social junk.

Need proof? ok, see that BIG BLUE ARROW? Ask yourself, are they trying to distract you from pure search to make you embrace social? hmmmm.

Let's call it what it is - free exposure for Google +1 and free traffic to Google +1. It's not making me friends in serps, I highly doubt it will on ads, lol.

Edit: Have you taken a look at the +you page? They want your real name and your address and phone number and any other personal information they can get. Run.

Yes, looks like they realized that (they see all data and statistics behaving in abnormal patterns).

So social networks are surprisingly controlling the users' traffic. Google's changes may be justified if they hunt down the awesome success of Facebook. Presently, plus.google doesn't look nicer but it is still possible to take it to the next level of more than being absurd.

Business decisions are very much tied with technology prodigies. AdSense with plus is awkward and they may roll it back when they realize changes doesn't bring any positives.

They are afraid of Facebook. Very afraid.
Afraid, desperate and restless. Facebook is much better then Google plus programs presently but AdSense will continue to get better and better is what most of us expects at least. If it gets worst or doesn't keep growing, then it is a dramatic mishap for Google.

Does this look familiar ?

LIKE <-2762 Tweet <-1973 +1 <-0

Does this feel familiar ?

To opt out of +1 features and annotations:

Sign in to your AdSense account.
Visit the Allow & block ads tab.
In the left panel, click Advanced settings.
Select either Content, Mobile Content, or Mobile Content Apps from the Product drop-down.
Click the block button in the Social Ads Preference section.


But when you try it you find...
The ad review center is no longer available in this interface. In the new AdSense interface, you'll find a faster version featuring the ability to search and an improved design. Try it now.


So, stay opted in or be forced to switch to their new interface now.

Can't. Doesn't scale.

No surprise here either. Eventually they will turn the old interface off.

As long as they can't obfuscate the bottom line, it doesn't matter.

Wow.. a nice point, I am though not sure, never thought that way, but if many many advertisers think that way, then it makes some sense.

I don't care what you are willing to pay.

As long as I'm not getting paid for the +1 clicks on ads on my site, +1 gets blocked.

I had left this turned on, but it just got ridiculous, with google plus signs on three display ads per page, plus the one for my own page.

It had the effect of branding the ads with sameness, instead of differentiating, pulling down the quality of all ads. Very confusing too. If I couldn't tell what the heck was supposed to be recommended, I'm sure my visitors couldn't either.

Also, with only so many clicks expected per reader, a non-paying click that doesn't lead to another page on my own site isn't viable.
