Site Specific Optimization Tips from Google Adsense

SMS Text

Google Adsense started sending out monthly optimization tips to Adsense publishers. These tips are the result of the Adsense system’s analysis of individual publisher accounts and settings. You can view these tips in the Reports tab of your Adsense account.


Actually, these tips are culled from the Adsense Help Center. What the system does is to send out blog specific tips depending on how it analyzes the blog’s current settings and configuration. For instance I checked out my main blog and found an optimization tip about reducing my accounts filter lists.

Dear Publisher,

Here is your optimization report for the month of April. After an automatic review of your sites, we think you might be able to improve your monetization using the following tips:

You may be filtering ads that monetize well on your site.
How can I fix this? Dismiss this tip.

We hope these tips are helpful, and encourage you to experiment using different layouts and formats–no two sites monetize the same way!

Honestly, this is a not so useful feature for experienced Adsense optimizers. But for newbies in the field of Adsense monetization and optimization, this would be very helpful and would save them time reading the optimization tips at the Adsense Help Center one by one.

    I got a message saying that I should have more ad units on my pages.

    Like you said, it’s nothing new and its aimed at AdSense newbies. They’re trying to help users and that’s a good thing.

    However, as an automated solution it fails to take into account what effect those suggestions would have on the site itself. Maybe adding another ad unit will hurt my EPC. Maybe it’ll piss readers off. Maybe removing the filtered sites will cause a return of earlier problems.

    There should be a warning telling people to use their own common sense and knowledge as well ūüôā

    I received the same “tip”. My list of exclusions is small (5 or so) and they’re all for dating sites. I don’t want that type of advertising showing and so Google’s recommendation was really just a waste of my time.

    I also can’t get rid of the recommendation from my dashboard. I’ve selected that I don’t want the tip to show, but it still shows. Also, I think there should be a rating where we can indicate whether the tip was useful or not.
