  • New Ad review center features help save you time and offer improved controls.
    Having the right information on the ads displayed on your site and being able to control them, is a big ask we hear from publishers. Many of you are already using the Ad review center to review and control these ads. From today, enjoy more choice with new updates designed to save you time and give you more control in the review process.

    Save time by not having to review the same ad twice. Now you can see which ads you’ve already reviewed by selecting the ‘Show reviewed ads’ checkbox in the top right corner of the Ad review center.

     You’ll also have more choice when reviewing ads with our new ad size widget. Using the widget, you can review ads according to their size. If you want to review only the banner ads on your page for example, they’ll be quick and easy to find. We’re still fine-tuning this feature meaning it’s possible that not every single ad of a particular size will be captured right away, but it will capture the majority of them.

    You’ll now also have more control with new enhancements to our related ads feature. Over the next few days, related ads will start to identify ads containing the same logo. It’ll then group together different ads containing that logo and give you the option to allow or block them running on your site. This feature will also cover ads containing the same video.

    Finally, we’ve given the Ad review center a new look with a brand new user interface designed for quick and simple navigation. Try out these new features today. We’re continuously looking for new ways to make this a valuable tool for you - please tell us what else you’d like to see over on our AdSense+ page.

  • 20(14) Publisher Stories: Total Race revs up their success using Google AdSense
    Time sure does fly - we’ve now reached the end of our ‘20(14) publisher stories’ blog series. Thanks for following the series and for sharing your own stories. Read on to meet this week’s featured publisher and check back soon for more publisher stories.

    Total Race was created by five friends and racing enthusiasts. Covering Formula 1, stock car racing and IndyCar, the site receives 135,000 monthly visitors and employs a team of 15 editors and reporters.

    Total Race partners, Ivan and Erick, were already familiar with Google AdSense and using it as a monetization solution for their other web projects. The decision to also choose it for totalrace.com.br was an easy one says Erick and today “AdSense earnings represent around 70% of our total advertising income”.

    The team also partnered with DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP) Small Business to manage their advertising and save them time. Erick is pleased with this decision stating “the process from start to finish is very fast and easy to use. I’d highly recommend this tool for publishers seeking more detail and control of their advertising campaigns”.

    According to Erick, these products have been fundamental in the growth of the site. With the structure they bring, he’s ready to focus further on taking his passion for racing to an even wider audience.

  • 20(14) Publisher Stories: Google AdSense helps IoLeggol'Etichetta help consumers
    As part of our ‘20(14) publisher stories’ blog series, every Monday we’ll introduce you to a publisher and share their success story. Read on to meet this week’s featured publisher, and feel free to share your own success story with us.

    Raffaele Brogna is the creator of Ioleggoletichetta.it. Meaning ‘I read the label’ in english, the site is dedicated to consumer awareness and protection offering advice on how to get the right information from product labels and tips on saving money when shopping. As a social crowdsourcing project, the site has a large community following who regularly contribute and report on their own experiences and findings as consumers.

    Alongside his wife, Raffaele looks after the day-to day operations as well as the broader strategy for the site. They decided to use AdSense at the outset to help cover running costs and considered the prompt payments offered by AdSense as a key influencer in their decision. They were quickly pleased with the results, in particular with the relevance of the ads displayed.


    They also use Google Analytics to help identify the best placements for their ad units and to check on their overall ad unit performance. Today, revenue from Google AdSense covers the costs of running this project online. Looking ahead, Raffaele will continue partnering with Google AdSense to go even further in his quest to give Italian consumers the information they need to make informed decisions when shopping.
