Adsense forums are buzzing this morning over a new feature added to the Adsense program in the last few hours that allows publishers to track their statistics without adding code to pages. You simply add the URL of the site, directory, category and they will provide statistics for that part of your blog.
For instance if I want to track the earnings from theof this blog I would simply set ‘http://www.livingroom.org.au/problogger/archives/adsense/’ as the category. Previously to track categories on blogs would mean a lot of tricky coding that I’m not sure I have the time, energy or skill for.
The only unfortunate part of the new features is that they have only made an extra 10 channels available to publishers which means the benefits will be limited. Still – its a useful tool.
