The new stuff with competing advertisers, have people opted in for this or opted out?
Apparently we can do so now? Would be interested to see whether people have seen any changes?
I've just started to approve ads using the new features. I have AdSense on my personal site as well as here. I can't say things have shown any changes yet, but I have been able to get rid of ads that I felt were really objectionable or which were obviously for scams/rip-offs.
I usually like to let a few months go by to have enough data to test program changes.
Errrmmm.....Ok, I am still hesitant (or just risk adverse!) thanks for your reply. It's one that I am going to keep an eye on I think. I cant see how there would be anything wrong in principle, but I am a little worried about fixing something which (at the moment) Isn't really broken for me...
Cheers again for your reply, would be grateful if you could keep me/us updated if you noticed any significant changes to income etc
I'm glad to get rid of a few ad categories that were extremely poor earners so that ads with much higher earning returns run instead.
Why wouldn't you want that?
Hmmm. I think I need to learn more about these options. Thanks for the thread.

I have only been a member of HubPages for 5 weeks, and already I have made close to $1,000. I know that this is not exceptional for some Hubbers, except I only have 13 hubs, I am not an internet marketing guru, and my hubs are not that exceptional or keyword optimized. In fact, the only...

I've been with Google Adsense for a number of years now. At no time have I ever had any problems with them. I have always fully understood the rules and policies set forth by Google. I have also always taken it very seriously that you can't click on your own ads and stay away from them when viewing...

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I understand that earnings are not final until final, but the most recent case was...

I'm wondering if anyone knows the meaning of a word sounding like "dapus". My father used to use it in the context of being clumsy or perhaps left-handed? It could have been "dabis", but phonetically it sounded like da'pis. He would use it jokingly if I...
