Any way to find out what type of adsense ad was clicked?

    I have adsense on my own websites and get a check from Google every month. I noticed today that one single click got me $3.08! smile

    Is there any way to find out what type of ad it was that got clicked, even the exact ad? I have many that get me over a buck per click.

    It seems to come down to what your subject is. High ticket items are worth the advertiser to pay a lot because the return is a lot. Which means your cut will also be higher.

    I've heard of savvy webmasters that tweak the ads in their account so only high paying ones are shown. You can't do that here but you can on your own sites.

    So, anyone know how to find out what ads that have been clicked on your site? sad

      Anyone who is serious about Adsense will always have tracking and analytical software running on their pages. The software will identify which advertisement was clicked as well as the ip address of where that click came from.

      How else are you going to defend yourself when your account gets disabled. You must have logs to prove to Adsense that you are not part of any fraud.

      The software is not cheap and requires knowledge of installing scripts.

      I suggest you search for adsense monitor software and install a good script. If you run a business you insure it, so there is no difference with your adsense account as you are afterall running a business are you not.

      The software I use shows exactly which ad was clicked, how much the adwords bid was and the ip address with time and date.

    Have you added hubpages.com to your URL channels?

    Hopefully you have. If you have then you'll know how to add a URL channel. All you need to do is add your other hub URLs.

    For me 200+ URLs would make it a bit awkward, especially considering I have hundreds more on other accounts, but for you with 7 hubs it should be easy and not too messy.

      what about adding your profile URL? i have thought about doing this but am not sure what is the best way to go about this: individual hub links, profile link or hubpages homepage link...(?)

        You can add your profile URL but it won't track anything other than your visits to that page. But I do find I make earnings on my profile without clicks.

    DS, can we track what type of ad get clicked using channels ?

      You won't be able to track what type of ad or the destination of the ad, only the hub which got you the click.

    The click came from my own websites. Since I have not even had one click here I'm not worried about adding hubpages to my channels.

    I can see what channel the click came from, my top header bar in my tourist site. But what I would like to find out is what exactly the ad was.

    A Disney ad, hotel ad, what? Finding out the exact website the ad was for would be great to. But I see no way of finding that out?

    You cannot check which was the exact advert being clicked, or which keyword it was related to, sorry!

      hmm, i wonder why. that would sure come in handy.

        It would also mean that everyone would block out the low value ads, and those bigging on higher value keywords would get hammered with costs, and have adverts placed on irrelevant websites!

      Merging your Analytics and Adsense accounts gives more statistics doesn't it? I have merged mine but haven't dug deep enough to see whether or not it coughs up stats such as those.

    That's what I thought. Ok, well I guess I'll just have to guess a bit. I do know that the more the advertiser makes on the product they are pushing, the more they spend on clicks.

    Which means more bucks for you. A toothpick ad is going to give you only cents, whereas a cruise click will give you a buck or more.

    Something to think about when your making an article. wink

    ah.

    well over time i think we can figure it out, although it is kind of like roulette sometimes wink

    Last I heard Google was keeping it all under wraps, I have merged my Google and adsense accoutns on all of my websites (Which took bloody ages, wish they had made that easier!) and it is really useful, allowing you to track which pages are bringing you in profit, profit heat maps, and so on, but as far as I am aware you cannot see which ads appearing on your website are earning the most.

    The best you can do really is focus on keywords that appear to be high value on Google adwords!
