AdSense Sends Some Publishers Surveys

Threads on Digital Point and Webmaster World are reporting that AdSense has sent out a survey to some publishers in the last few hours. Participants are entered in a competition to win them a possible $1000 ‘gift card’.

Did anyone get a survey to fill in?

    I received a survey invite. Nothing too surprising, but it’s nice to be asked what you think of a service and what you think could be done to improve it.

    The toughest question was the one that asked me to rate my level of happiness with my earnings. Another interesting question was what existing features I considered important, but only allowed me to pick 2 out of however many items they listed.

    I didn’t get mine in the last few hours though. It’s been a couple of days at least.

    I got one too. There was a section that asked what (of a list of features) I would like most. I didn’t write them down but I do remember one being something about “the ability to manage other people’s adsense (or was it adwords) accounts”.

    Yup. Got mine last Friday:

    “We’re contacting a select group of AdSense web publishers to ask for feedback on the AdSense program, and we’d like to invite you to
    participate. As Google is always working to optimize our services, we’re interested in your thoughts and comments on how we can improve AdSense for you.”

    I thought this was some kind of spam as I’m not accustomed to getting e-mails from AdSense, but it seems like the team might be up to adding some new features or simply getting feedback for the next board meeting.

    Received mine last week. It was actually longer than I expected, but it was thorough in a good way. They were definitely asking the questions that I wanted them to ask, and there was plenty of opportunity to give your own input on what you like and dislike about their service.

  5. FMF says:

    I got one too. Since I wasn’t expecting it, I emailed them to make sure it wasn’t a phishing email. ;-)

    Basic stuff as the above comments say. My main feedback:

    I’d like higher paying ads with more consistent relevance for my readers.

    Who doesn’t want thet, huh?

  6. pcunix says:

    Yes, I got one too. Fortunately I already had several articles on my site expressing long, detailed answers to some of their questions, so I referred ’em to those.

    I thought the survey was pretty good – only a few places where they needed a “N/A” choice.

    Hope they learn a LOT from this.

    I got one last week as well.

  8. Gary Fugere says:

    I got one as well. I was impressed by how in depth they got, I just hope this starts a trend of more communication with publishers.

  9. Patrick says:

    Yep. Got one here, as well.


  1. […] A number of readers have emailed me parts (or and all) of the AdSense survey that some publishers were sent over the weekend. Here are a couple of the more interesting questions that they asked. I’m not sure how serious they are about all of these things but they must shed a little light on some of what AdSense are considering: […]
