More AdSense Changes Announced

AdSense has added a few new features today in addition to their ‘Themed Ad Units‘.

They have also made available a new feature called ‘custom reports to go’ which allows you to get your earnings reports sent to you via email instead of having to log into to look at them. You can set up 10 custom reports to be sent daily, weekly or monthly. This new feature is set up through the ‘report manager’ in the reports tab.

Link Units Optimized – AdSense have also apparently changed the landing pages for readers who click ‘adlinks’. There’s no real details of what the improvements are but they are claiming that there is improved monetization.

New AdSense for search Designs – There are also changes with the Adsense for search system. By changes there seem to be a few new formats being made available for more options to integrate the search system into your blog. These are accessed via the ‘search code’ section on the ‘search tab’. I’m looking forward to playing with these new options tomorrow as I’ve always found the AdSense search to be a little difficult to blend.

All in all the changes seem pretty cosmetic and minor – more tweaks than anything to improve publisher experience.

Full detail of all the changes are outlined in the Adsense What’s New page.

    The only thing I see different on the link unit page is a “Related Ads” section at the right with more link units someone can click on and get other ads.

    Darren, this made me spot something “wrong” with your site

    You’re linking to your feedburner feed, but the head section of your pages contain a link to WordPress built-in feed (http://www.problogger.net/feed/rss/). And this is what is used by software to auto-discover feed urls.

    I, for an example, was using the WP feed, not the feedburner feed. So I think you could miss quite a few readers in your feedburner stats.

    I advise you to give a try to the excellent feedburner redirection plugin for wordpress, this will send users like me from the WP feed to your actual feedburner feed.

    Ok actually I managed to even post a comment in the wrong thread. I’m so smart sometimes :-P

    Aww, I like logging into Google all day long to see my stats – there’s anticipation in that little delay between logging in and seeing the report screen.

    Sad, moi? Hehe. :)

    Haha Andy, me too, sorta.And then I curse WTF! only $0.XX today $!#@# …..

  7. I’m waiting for AdSense for Search being made available for those of us who want to use Strict markup with no layout tables.
