Late last week I found a surprising email in my inbox – from Google.
One of the product managers at Google’s Adsense said she’d found ProBlogger and wanted to know if she could ring me to talk about my experience with the program. At first I was excited – then I was a little cautious – I asked for proof that she was really from Adsense as I didn’t want to give any information away to anyone who shouldn’t get it – she provided me with details of my earnings that no one else could know. We then set up a time for her to call me – yesterday morning Aussie time.
The conversation was pretty interesting – I wasn’t sure what to expect or how to prepare for it. Without giving away all the details of our chat – Google was largely interested in hearing about how I’d started blogging, how I’d found Adsense, what impact it had had on my business and my tips for optimizing Adsense ads.
All up we must have chatted for 30 to 45 minutes in which time we covered a fair bit of ground.
At the end of the conversation the product manager invited me to email them with any further thoughts on the Adsense program as they were interested in any more thoughts that I had.
This got me thinking that perhaps I should open up the question to readers to answer.
- What feedback would you like Google to hear about Adsense as a publisher?
- What have you found that works well with Adsense?
- What do you wish they’d add to it?
- How would you improve any aspect of the system that they currently have?
Have you say in comments below and I’ll email a link to your comments to my new Adsense contact for her perusal. You never know – you might just say something that gets implemented in the future?
