Just over a month ago I reported that AdSense had added a new features – Site Diagnostics – to what they were offering publishers. A few days later (actually from memory it was just a few hours later) it disappeared again – the official explanation was that it was a ‘temporary test’.
Well today it looks like it’s reappeared again (for how long I’m not sure). Here’s a screen cap just in case it does (click to enlarge)!
The point of the diagnostics tool is that it will show you which pages (that have AdSense on them with your publisher code) that AdSense is having trouble crawling. This will help you to make sure every page possible is optimized well and at it’s earning capacity.
The report is generated weekly. So far so good for me but I guess I’ll only know if there’s a problem this time next week.
