Have you ever wished that you could get more details of how your AdSense performance is going and wondered why Google AdSense and Google Analytics don’t have some way of talking to one another to give you more effective metrics?
Well it seems that the time is coming soon where you’ll be able to read AdSense stats in your Analytics reports. The kinds of stuff you’ll be able to see:
- Which pages on your blog get the most AdSense clicks
- Which pages have the highest CPM
- Which pages have the highest CTR
- AdSense graphs/trends
- Which traffic sources generate the highest income
Digital Inspiration has just published some screenshots of the new reports that we’ll hopefully be able to find in Google Analytics soon.
For example this ‘Top AdSense Content’ page looks at your different pages of content and how they perform (click to enlarge):
This is the ‘AdSense Overview’ page:
The AdSense Revenue Page (which gives a graph of AdSense earnings over time)
‘AdSense Content’ Page
AdSense Referring Sites Page:
This kind of reporting is something that AdSense publishers have been asking for years. It is going to open up some amazing possibilities for optimizing your content for AdSense. The only question is – when will it become available???
Interestingly the AdSense blog is saying that AdSense will be down for maintenance this Saturday (13th) between 10am to 2pm PDT. Perhaps what they’re doing is getting this new launch ready?
I’ve asked Google for comment on this and they responded with a ‘no comment’. However I’ve been hearing from a number of services that the maintenance this weekend is NOT to put this new functionality in place and that it’s probably a couple of weeks away before we’ll see this released.
