top Adsense earners

Google Adsense + Analytics = Higher earnings

If you’re a Google Adsense publisher, one of the common problems you probably have is the lack of detailed information to tell you which specific content is delivering you income and from which countries the ad clicks are coming from.

Now, those problems will be addressed by the new feature Adsense is offering. Google’s online money-making program, Adsense, is currently integrating with Google’s own web analytics tool, Analytics, to give users access to detailed information about the performance of Adsense ads.

Can the integration of Adsense and Analytics ultimately bring more earnings?

Google Adsense team makes mistakes too

What do you do if you received an email from Google Adsense telling you that your site violated Adsense policies and that your account may be disabled in the future?

That’s exactly the email I got from them last week so you can imagine my panic at the thought of losing an income source.

Adsense’s email states:

Electronic Funds Transfer of Google Adsense earnings in the Philippines?

Google Adsense recently announced that publishers in Hungary and Hong Kong are now able to receive their Adsense earnings via Electronic Fund Transfer or EFT. Through EFT, earnings are deposited directly to the publisher’s bank account in his country. Payments are made in the local currency and converted using the exchange rate at the time of the payment.

EFT definitely saves one’s time especially if the publisher’s current mode of payment is checks, which arrive several weeks later. In the Philippines, publishers can be paid via Western Union but the hassle of visiting a WU branch will be gone if EFT is to be implemented.

What ‘Third-Party Ads’ means for Google Adsense publishers

If you are a Google Adsense publisher, you probably have already received Google’s email about Third Party Ads:

We’re happy to announce that the Google content network now
accepts display ads served from qualified third-party vendors.
During this initial release, only ads in English are eligible,
although we look forward to offering more options in the future.

By accepting third-party ads, we can attract a greater variety of
advertising on the Google content network, which we believe will
result over time in increased revenue for publishers and more
relevant advertising for end users.

What this means is that Google has opened its content network and can now accept ads from qualified third party vendors. Some of the identified third party tracking vendors include DoubleClick DFA, Mediaplex/ValueClick, Eyeblaster, EyeWonder, Interpolls, Pointroll, Unicast, Dynamic Logic/Safecount, Factor TG, IAG, and InsightExpress.

Many large, top-brand advertisers use third parties to create and manage their ad campaigns. By accepting ads from these third parties, the Google ad inventory is expected to increase — ultimately translating to more ad earnings for Adsense publishers.

Google Adsense earnings down?

Several website owners are reportedly seeing their Google Adsense income declining in the past months. A discussion over at WebmasterWorld got webmasters talking about the phenomenon and what supposedly is causing it.

We are also seeing that decreasing trend here in the site, albeit not consistently from month to month. Our monthly average income now is just barely half of what we earn last year.

In December, income dropped by 30% from the previous month. We don’t know what triggered this but we’re thinking the shrinking of clickable areas in Adsense ads and the PageRank penalty slapped on the site might be the culprit.

Fortunately, Adsense earnings reverted to its normal level in January 2008 but in February, income is back again in the same level as December 2007. Daily earnings during the first days of March this year are increasing but still nowhere close to the pre-December figures.

Why are Adsense earnings on a decline?

FAQ on Google Adsense PIN

All Google Adsense publishers are required to enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN) in order to be eligible to receive payments from Adsense. You will receive the PIN via mail after your earnings balance has reached $50. Adsense publishers in the Philippines have reported that it usually takes around 20 days to 2 months before they receive the PIN from Adsense.

Below is a short FAQ about the Google Adsense PIN.

  • Why is a PIN necessary?

The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is key to verifying your Google AdSense account so that you can receive payments. Once your account balance reaches $100 — provided you have entered the PIN and removed all other holds from your account — you will be all clear to receive payments from Adsense.

PINs were issued starting January 28, 2005 — if your account was approved before this date, you do not need to enter in a PIN.

  • What does a PIN mailer look like?

PINs are printed on PIN mailers, which are white 4.5 x 6 inch (11.4 x 15.2 cm) postcards. Below are the front and back images of the PIN mailer that Google sends to publishers.
