  • Share your thoughts on AdSense, AdMob and other Google publisher solutions
    Your thoughts and suggestions play a key role in shaping our publisher offerings. That’s why we’re looking forward to hearing from you in our semi-annual publisher survey launching on November 4th. Make your voice heard by sharing your thoughts, and help us provide you a more useful and impactful publisher experience.

    The feedback collected from this survey is closely reviewed to help determine our product roadmap. Thanks to your suggestions last time round, we’ve launched a number of new features to grow your earnings and improve our service. On AdSense these include improved performance with magazine ads, enhanced control filters in the AdSense Ad review center and the launch of wire transfer as a convenient payment method in more countries. You also now have access to additional insights with the integration of Google Analytics into the new AdMob.

    Over the coming weeks, you may receive a survey by email. To take part, please take the following steps as soon as possible:

    • Update your contact details.
    • Update your email preferences to receive ‘occasional survey’ messages.

    Whether you’ve completed this survey before or you’re providing feedback for the first time, we’d like to thank you for taking the time to tell us how we’re doing. We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback.

  • A more mobile-friendly look for text ads on the Google Display Network
    Readability and appearance are essential elements of a positive mobile user experience. With that in mind, we’ve made some changes to the design of our text ads on the Google Display Network.

    The title and description in the new text ads will now be easier for your mobile users to read. Your site visitors will be able to quickly understand what the ad is about because the ad description will be more prominent. In addition, the ad format will give them a more interactive experience, letting them swipe across or click on the dot to see the advertiser website URL.

    Be on the look out for our new text ads and tell us what you think of this redesign over on our AdSense +page.

  • New control filters in the Ad review center
    Many of you currently use the Ad review center to view and control the ads displayed on your website. You've recently told us you'd like to see more options to search for specific ads. Today we're launching two new filters which will give you even more control.

    Find ads that look similar
    When you identify an ad that you want to block, you can choose to find related ads, e.g., ads that have the same landing page or advertiser. We've enhanced this feature, so that now when you run a "related ads" search, you'll also see ads that look similar too. This filter can help save you time looking for similar ads to allow or block.

    Filter ads by language
    If your website is international in scope, ads on your website can show in different languages. Now you can filter ads running on your site by language in the Ad review center. For example, you could choose to see all Spanish-language ads that have shown in the last 30 days.
    You’ll find more information in the Help Center on how to search for ads in the Ad review center. We’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions in the comment section below.

  • Paired for success: A trusted partner for kotobank
    Welcome to the third part of ‘Paired for success’, a blog series dedicated to the stories of publishers and Certified Partners who have joined forces to get the most out of Google AdSense.    

    With 1.5 million terms, kotobank allows users to look up words in over 100 dictionaries at the same time. With such range of content categories, this online service started using AdSense in 2012 to target its users with the advertising they want to see.
    Mr Kazuyuki Uchiyama, kotobank Business Development Manager
    But kotobank soon felt they couldn’t stay up-to-date with all the changes in the advertising world and sought advice from adingo, a Google AdSense Certified Partner based in Tokyo. adingo quickly analyzed the potential of kotobank’s site, implemented some changes and monitored the effect on performance. This partnership soon led to positive results, with kotobank’s revenue growing by 200%. Now kotobank can focus on updating their site with the latest terminology, trusting that adingo will take care of their AdSense account.

    Read the full story here.
