Google AdSense Reports to Appear in Google Analytics – [Screenshots]

Posted By Darren Rowse 12th of September 2008 Adsense 43

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?

Update

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.

  1. Wow, very nice! This should really help with stats tracking along with seeing which pages convert best.

  2. Interesting. Hopefully this solution will really be implemented ASAP.

  3. Now they just need to integrate Feedburner data.

  4. It would be nice to see the new launch! I know many publisher would love to be able to use these features together!

  5. Very nice info… I look forward to tracking Adsense, and @Gary, feedburner stats would be amazing as well!

  6. Nice pick up Darren..thanks for the heads up. It does seem to take some time for Google to integrate all it’s offerings…but this will be a welcome change!

  7. I look forward to getting my hands on that data!

  8. Hey, that’s pretty neat. I was just wondering the other day why this hasn’t been done.

  9. I’m looking forward to see this … -:). Simply – Great info. Finaly I’ll be able to see which page is making me money and which does not. This will help me to optimise my adsense ad on different posts/pages.

    I’m using Analytics for my sites and this feature is for me a step forward into a real freedom.

  10. For once it paid to stay up late and hang out on Plurk. LoL Great post! This is huge news and if it comes full circle it will make a huge difference in how we view our website statistics. I welcome any change from Google that makes my life easier and more efficient.

  11. Arrr! I want this feature RIGHT NOW! Not Saturday. Please! Can I haz AdSense Stats?

  12. Excellent news! Thanks for the heads up.

  13. I agree with Gary. Feedburner stats would be AWESOME in addition to Adsense stats in Analytics

  14. This is the kind of thing I never knew I needed. And now that I’ve seen it, I know I can’t live without it.

  15. Wow that is incredible. It really was just a matter of time, but that combined with the slick Adwords integration and conversion information is going to make for some interesting data mining.

  16. Thanks for the heads up! This is going to be a powerful tool for publishers to find out the weak and strong areas of their websites other than simply bounce rates and time on page. I can see Adsense revenue getting a big push from this type of data.

  17. This is some great news, considering that I’ve been looking into placing google ads on my site. I think Analytics are great and having this type of ability all within the interface is amazing.

    Thanks for sharing this, Darren.

  18. Absolutely awesome.

    Google is slowly taking over the world. @gary If feedburner stats are integrated, then there would be no where else to go. Everything you need for your website will be right infront of you.
    That will be so Amazing.

  19. I saw this a couple weeks ago, I think it is awesome. It will help us learn more about what is performing and what isn’t.

  20. Yeah more tracking, I will not bother them anymore with adsense questions. :D

  21. Finally, great news, I have been waiting for this. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Yeah, I was thinking why AdSense and Analytics weren’t connected. I’m looking forward to seeing how it will work.

  23. Can someone tell me why Google Analytics is so popular? I’ve always relied on the site stats provided (in various forms) by my webhost. Is there an advantage to getting my stats from Analytics that I’m missing out on? Well obviously after they integrate AdSense…

  24. I can hardly wait, now!!

  25. WOW! Imagine the possibilities this can give…

  26. I have always wondered when this would happen. I hate having to log in to both Analytics and AdSense (and now AdManager) all separately.

    it is nice that Analytics does finally remember my login credentials though, if I could get a dashboard that handled, Analytics, Feedburner (since they are part of google), AdSense, AdManager, Gmail without having to use iGoogle that would be nice!

  27. Yay! These reports look awesome. Thanks, Darren.

  28. Hmmm

    I’ve always wondered why they weren’t integrated a bit better…!

    Sounds like a great idea to me.

  29. I’m not really big into Google anything and I probably won’t ever recommend it. I think that Google is ran by little bitches and they tried to run the whole World Wide Web. I hope that someone will finally come along and expose them for what they really are.

  30. Google is making all kinds of ‘analytics’ easier..!

  31. Great news. Thanks for the post and the pictures!

  32. I want these great graphics. I hope I will improve my adsense earnings.

  33. This is going to be a great tool, and I have been waiting for it for quite some time. However, I see a problem with it already. Many bloggers, especially new bloggers, will focus on what type of content is making them money. However they never pay attention to what type of content is bringing in readers and is satisfying their current readers.

    Again it will be a great tool, but don’t put too much focus on it. Good content doesn’t come from what Google Analytic says, its about creativity and fresh ideas.

  34. Great find. Looks like this could be very useful. Keep us posted if you find out more info! Thanks

  35. Well, it about time. I think off late, Google is trying to offered one stop center for all solution. Would that be the next business move, internet domination?

  36. I am waiting for this feature!!! I have tried many things to get this report but none worked well!! but if it is from google, then it will be 99.9% accurate!!

  37. This is really really cool and I would love to use this for my entrepreneur blog

  38. useful posting…really help me to evaluate my earning from adsense…thanks

  39. No update yet. Hope it is coming soon. It really is a pain in the ass to get my adsense data in a decente graph. i am trying to download adsenselog from metalgrass but that does not seem to work for me. It gives an error on installing.

    Hopefully updates will follow quickly

  40. This sounds like an interesting development for AdSense/Analytics and I can’t wait for it to be implemented. I am wondering if it will be able to report which advertisers are generating income, using the competetive ad filter can sometimes be a little hit and miss as you may actually be exlcluding an advert that is making money.

  41. When will this feature come up!! Am really waiting for this from google, after trying a lot other methods !

  42. Can’t wait to see this live ^^

  43. Me too, I think they start the implementation in the US and will slowly start with the rest of the world.
