I keep looking for comments from those who have gone with the AdSense "User First" program.
I pretty much see silence, which concerns me.

I am wondering about whether or not I should sign up.
Which would mean deleting my other PPC program entirely (a small fraction of AdSense revenue).

What is your opinion?
1. UFP is really good. Try for it now.

2. UFP implementation had little effect on my ...
... a. earnings,
... b. EPC,
... c. quality of ads served, etc.

3. UFP really messed up my ... .
... a. earnings,
... b. EPC,
... c. quality of ads served, etc.

Should I or shouldn't I?

I would love to see your opinions.
I haven't a clue. It sounds promising, but I would like to ascertain the ACTUAL benefits encountered, before committing.
Both qualitatively and quantitatively.
What has YOUR experience been?
Thank you.

Umm, maybe that's the problem. I don't know what I am talking about.

OK. Maybe we could just hear general comments from the beta early user community, initial impressions, general comments, etc.

I will listen to anything for hints.
Quite essential for long-term planning. Always trying to improve, ya know. Anticipate future workload, etc.

Thanks for the nudge. I read it again. I was looking for updated info. Apparently, there is none.

Pretty iffy to me. ZERO CLAIMS of wonderfulness.
Just confusion about red, green and yellow, with no real resolution or explanation.

I am going to have to go with a previous comment - "marketing BS". No substance. Continuing FUD.
Maybe this will change in the future. But for me, now, fugitaboutit. SHOW US the advantages.
Just one more admonition to continue jumping through hoops. I have enough hoops already.

Same here. It's not marketing BS, but the honest truth is you need to be a developer to implement the recommendations Google makes, especially around site speed. If you use a CMS like Wordpress, and you're not experienced making the kinds of code changes they recommend, it's just a constant wagging finger in your face that your site isn't up to snuff and there's little you can do about it, other than hire someone to make the changes. Plus, most of what causes many sites to be slow, I'd bet, are the ads Google is serving.
