I feel that one of the biggest mistakes new Adsense adopters/publishers make is that they do not fully utilize resources made available to them through the Google Adsense portal. Some don't even know these resources exist. Some just ignore them. There is not only a wealth of information via help forums, blogs, and videos, but Google actually offers complimentary courses and webinars, sometimes several times a month.
Some of these resources are definitely worth checking out, especially if you are looking to learn the basics.
