Jay Westerdal initiated the rumblings online with this post: Google to kill Domain Tasting
He speaks of an apparent policy change by Google which will end the opportunity to monetize parked domains. That ought to mean that Google will have to dismantle Adsense for Domains? I don’t think that’s the most important item on Google’s agenda […]

Darren (for the few that don’t read Darren) reported to us yesterday that AdSense will be introducing ServerSide Ad Management shortly.
Darren has been given the opportunity to run this feature through some paces on his sites.
The Google Adsense Blog explains;
“This new ad management feature means that your ad unit settings (such as colors and channels) […]

Perhaps someone at the Techdirt Insight Community will have the ability to answer this one:
Does anyone have “reliable figures available that put Google’s splog problem into perspective.”
Matt Mullenweg pointed to it - “Why Google is the service of choice for sploggers.”

I’ll assume I’m reaching those who may own a reasonable number of domain names that are parked. And the question is “Are you making the most of those parked domains?” Or, are you embroiled in a disagreement about trademarks? Well, Google won’t, isn’t able to, put an end to whatever disagreements you may be having […]

Ever since I signed up for a Google Adsense account in mid-2006 I was created with the same bland welcome login page. It appears Google has in fact finally updated the page with more details about the actual program accessible from the main page in addition to the login and signup links as well.
The update […]

Someone’s paying for this?

Lets set the scene.
Correct Ad placement - check
Blended colors - check
Good traffic - check
No clicks. What the?
If you’ve been playing with the Google Adsense program, you’ll know that advertisements are served contextually, meaning ads appear that relate to the content on your website. A major mistake some web publishers make is that the content is […]

Google’s Adsense department now allows publishers to display search results embedded in an iframe. One thing that turned me off before was the fact that results were always shown offsite, and lacked control. Google have now sorted this issue, allowing total customization of the search engine results.
Setup is extremely easy and can be achieved by […]

Alborz has informed me that his newly tweaked Adsense adverts are now paying for a good chuck of his living expenses.
Imagine having Adsense paying for your phone and electricity bill. What about your weekly rent, all that worry and responsibility simply lifted off your shoulder?
Even if you only earn a small amount from Adsense, set […]

Google has a new design up for Adsense. Awesome. I will go through it and review later, probably tomorrow. For now, go check it out.

Web search leader Google Inc. said on Monday advertisers could now choose the Web sites that carry their ads and it was introducing animated graphical advertisements.
This can work out very well for both sides.
What this does is allow for advertisers to select sites on which they want their ads to appear. They can either enter […]

This is awesome. This is what I have been waiting for and now it has arrived. Instead of having to wait the two day delay to check on which channels are performing you can now get the results in real-time (or as real-time as AdSense gets).
They have also added the ability to show data by […]
