This may sound odd, but after 12 years of publishing Adsense,I just started manually reviewing ads using the ad review center.
With the upcoming holiday season, I decided to spend some time reviewing ads. It took a few days, but I reviewed several thousand ads. I am now keeping current with the couple hundred daily new ads.
- Observations -
• It doesn't seem to matter if I authorize the ad or not, they still make it into the inventory displayed on my pages.
• Ads I block often have "related ad" that also need to be blocked.
• To block unwanted advertiser URLs I find on my pages, I have to revert to the *old* ad review center and choose "Advertise URL"
• Blocked advertiser URLs will often take a couple hours to be removed from my pages.
Any other tips?
