To make the site clean and faster loading, I remove one piece advertising script.
The ads removed is provided by Kontera, I used it for many years. It is a content link ads. It mimics text link. When mouse move over it, a small float layer display a small box with ads. About five to ten Kontera links are added on each of my post. Now I took it away. The page looks less links on it.
The second change I made is to move Google Ads from the middle center of the post content to the right up inline of the post. Personally, I feel better look. And more content will be shown above the fold.
After the above two changes, the Fully Loaded time is reduced about 25% on first view.
Yes, it is November now. Google AdSense payment issue from September is still not solved.
The email I received today from Google said:
We’re writing you to let you know about an issue that affects your AdSense payments.
In your AdSense account you’ll notice that your September earnings are displayed as $0 on the homepage and don’t appear at all on the Payments page. While your earnings were correctly calculated and are securely stored, system issues have prevented us from displaying your correct earnings total and issuing your October payment, even if your account exceeded the payment threshold.
No action is required from you at the moment. We know that regular payments are important to you and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
As a publisher, I can do nothing but wait. See when Google will solve this 2 month longer issue.
Today I added a new Google AdSense wide Skyscraper ad unit on the right side.
The purpose is to test the number of Page impressions, not for ads earning. If it is for earning, I always think less is better. And I will save the best place for the only one ads.
There are more and more bloggers have Google AdSense on their blogs. It is good for blogger and also good for audiance.
First of all, the content is king. I believe it. The good content can attrack Users attention and also Google likes it.
Then If users come to your site or blog, finish reading the main content of the page. He may do a quick look at the other interesting thing on page. At that time, content related Ads is best supplemental content for them.
Do not leave too much white space on your site. Only if you design the white space.
Try all kinds of ads in your blog. There must be one suitable for you.
The Google AdSense has its own login account previously. During last year, it ask some people use their Google Account to replace the regular AdSense account login information.
But it is not successful, if your Google Account has already associated with an AdWords, AdSense, or Books account.
Now this limitation is broken. Google can provide this merge smoothly, even you has the Google Account with AdWords.
I have this situation. I tried to change AdSense login by Google Account, which is associated with an AdWords account. So it failed.
This morning, when I login the AdSense by my current AdSense account, it promot me to merge it with a Google Account. I still remembered the trial before. I think I can try it again.
After four or five steps, the convert is successful. I can use the same Google Account to access Google AdSense, Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Center, and most important Gmail, etc.
When Google first launched Google Pack referrals in May 2006, it is only available to USA publishers. Just noticed from Jensence’s Blog, Google Pack is also available in Canada. Great news.

I still remember Google Pack was only six software inside. Continue reading
