They actually reversed that decision for now.
In the blog post now it says:

I think you guys are misunderstanding the settings here.
You have two options:
1. "Allow any site to display ads for my account" (The Default)
In this case, any website, even if you don't...
I think you missed a big piece of information that would throw off a lot of your calculations for pricing ads in the article.
As a publisher, you get 68% revenue share, while G gets only 32%. This...
Were you using exact match or broad?
Make sure you use exact match when looking at monthly search traffic in the tool to get more accurate results.
Do they have to be the same exact url? I mean what if you put two links on the same page, one to example.com and the other to example.com/example.html
Would google count one or both of these?
I'm seeing it as PR4 also
Yup I've got a few that jumped from PR0 to PR2... a few that dropped to PR1 and a few that haven't changed.
I'm finally seeing PR updates to my sites today. Anyone else seeing updates?
I've just went through the PDF and I pretty much have nothing more to add over what tetrapak said.
My honest verdict: :thumbdown:
I'll take a review copy if possible.
I've registered on your site and will be submitting some articles starting tomorrow :)
Like Shenron, I've been using this technique for close to a year now and my images traffic has actually increased during that time. Not sure what happened for you there, but you may want to try it...
I'm quite aware that I can do it manually and that I can outsource it to someone that can do it manually.
I started this thread because I'm looking for a software recommendation.
I think you answered your own question there: "it can be time consuming"
I need your recommendations for a good, fully-automated, directory submission software.
I've been looking around and can't find anything that looks reliable.
An important criteria is that it is...
The reports look fine for me as of right now.
Well I only have about 30 or so sites and the effects for me have been quite random as well!
Some of my new EMD's are ranking nicely, while older ones are being pushed down to below 100. Other new...
Please let me know if you have any good ones. I'm also thinking of moving away from adsense on my arcades.
They just posted this yesterday on the adsense blog.
The header would be fine if it is 150 pixels or more away from the flash game. Basically any adsense ad unit on any page of your arcade will be...
I know! This time they are crystal clear about the rules it's almost weird :)
Yeah you could show ads from other ad networks; just not adsense.
A new post on the adsense blog caught my attention today. Here's an excerpt from the post:
Loads of Arcade sites have an adsense ad unit showing before the game is loaded. I myself did this on my...

Well creating an entirely new site with different content isn't really an option I would like to pursue.
So, which would you recommend of the three remaining possible options?
I have a site based on an exact match domain (EMD) that is a .org domain. I built the site a while back and built links for it over time and now its starting to rank well for the exact match query.
Well the list of sites is rarely ever updated and many of them start failing constantly. Also the CAPTCHA's come up on top of each other, so when u're in the middle of typing one the next one pops-up...

Nah it's actually a new feature where you can change the background on the search results page; pretty much like how Bing results are shown.
If you are not smart priced and don't have a special deal with G, you will get 68% share. It is not an average.
Here is the reply posted by the Adsense team with regards to questions on if the 68%...
I think it's a pretty fair cut for the publisher.
I've always thought it would be much lower than that.

Apparently, the publisher gets 68% of the revenue with Adsense for content, and gets 51% of the...
I don't see them applying a general slap across the board for all exact match domains because there are lots of people that search for a site by inputting the site's name into google and expect to...
I had never even considered that they could be artificially increasing the search estimates for their own domains, but it makes perfect sense.
Thanks, I will definitely start checking in...
I'm getting really frustrated trying to find exact match domain names with good search volumes (>10,000 per month).
It seems every single domain on the planet has already been registered!! :smash:...
Gave that a shot but still didn't work. Looks like they just don't support it like you said.
Well thanks for the help anyways, much appreciated :)
You can check it out here, it's the drop down at the top.

Thanks Aziz... I applied your example and now the styling is done with CSS.
But again it looks great in FF, while IE and Chrome completely ignore the <option> styling :confused:

Can you please give me a quick example of how you would style the...

Check out this thread, it has a looong discussion on infolinks.
I referred a friend in need of a logo design to Aziz, and as always he delivered a great design at lightning speed! That "Design Guru" badge is well deserved :)
Just received my Logo from Aziz and am very happy with the quality and speed of the service. Will definitely use again for any future logo needs! :)

Oops didn't notice it was an inner page :doh:
Congrats on PR8! :thumbsup:
Hmm... it shows as PR6 for me :confused:
Wow that's really impressive... would love to know the site if you don't mind sharing it :)
Well once every 3-4 months shouldn't upset the big G ;)
I use this free tool, it's pretty good.
Did the people who tried this get paid?
Thanks for the tip Shenron, I switched to double underlines after I saw your post and my CTR almost doubled! :thumbsup:
That's really strange! Are you using the "Allowed Sites" feature? I'm just thinking maybe you didn't add the domains to the allowed sites as that would cause no impressions/click to be recorded.
My EPC with Infolinks is as follows:
- Since April 26th 2009 (since I started using them) until today is 8.89 cents
- For the year to date is 8.66 cents
- For the passing week is 11.55 cents
I've just received an email from Infolinks saying that they are changing their minimum payout from $100 to $50 starting this month, which is obviously great news! :)
What is your definition of an "Indian website"?
If the website is owned by an Indian person, but is hosted on servers in the US and is targeting keywords searched for in the US, and has backlinks...
The easiest way is to create a blog on blogspot, post a few original articles and then apply with your blogspot blog for adsense. They almost always approve those.
That's great progress from the 10-20 per month you were making when starting this thread...Congrats!
Wow there are some really useless domains there!
And what's with these weird 245,246,248 etc... .com domains??
The only thing that does is search for the words "www.netbuilders.org" on the site called netbuilders.org. You could similarly do a search of any topic such as link building, on only netbuilders by...
You use the query "site:netbuilders.org" to see the indexed pages.
The absolute easiest way to get into adsense is to create a blog on blogspot, write a couple of unique posts, then apply with the blogspot blog.
I've received a few angry emails from users that the code posted in this thread doesn't allow them to use the "back" button after they come to my site. So, I tested it myself and found that it is...
Yeah I received this same email with last month's payment.

Well no need to worry about the 30th of Feb passing by! :rofl:
Nah but seriously, wish you the best of luck with your goal. :)
Where can I get a copy of that? :)
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but where is the "report" button?
WTF ?? :confused:
I would say privategameservers.com is better SEO wise since it contains all of your target keywords, while the other one doesn't have the word "game" in it.
Very true, and it really has no effect for me since I don't sell any links.
But I still get great satisfaction when any of my sites gets an increase in PR; it's extra validation for all your hard...
Does anyone know of or have used a good auction script (like ebay)?
I'm looking to create an auction site targeted at my local community and can't figure out which script to use.
Indeed, I've just checked and a few of my sites went up :D
Thanks, will give it a try.
Wish I'd seen it before buying the other one though; but I guess 9.99 isn't that much anyway :)
EDIT: I downloaded it and couldn't get it to install; not sure if...
First off let me just say what an excellent post this is. It's great to see a reply of this high quality on NB as lately it seems most posts are a few words repeating what everyone else said or just...
I use RSSBot by Incansoft. I think it costs around $20 but I used a coupon and got it for 9.99.
It does a good job of submitting your feeds to around 40 or 50 rss directories automatically.
Sounds interesting. May I ask what's the project you're working on?
Will had quoted an article from SEOmoz SEOmoz | New & Interesting Insights Into Google Rankings & Spam from Pubcon in a separate thread...
Or they might be providing them as a service to the webmaster; which is essentially what the google webmaster tool's function is.
The webmaster can then see all links to his/her site, including...
Yes, no difference at all.
It's very unlikely that 140 other sites suddenly became better than him.
Looks like a penalty. Have you done any link exchanges or gotten links from bad neighbourhoods recently?
Not sure why you say they are lying, but I've bought a few domains in the past that were not getting indexed due to a ban for months, and after sending a reconsideration request they were indexed...
Do you mean here on NB? :D
Yes, the sites were not getting indexed for about 2 months, and about 4 days after I sent them the message they started getting indexed.
They do actually take the site reconsideration request...
Send a reconsideration request from Google Webmaster Tools, and explain in your message that you have just bought the domains.
It happened to me a couple of times before, and the domains were...
Having an exact match domain is not magic; it only gives you a slight boost but you still need to do all the work.
Think of it like starting from scratch but with 100 relevant links...
As Snak3 said, the amount of SEO done for the site is indeed very impressive.
The only problem I can see, is that most of your backlinks do not use the words "Bath and Body Products". From what...
You mean get a new domain name or just change the title?
If you change the domain name, then there will ofcourse be an effect on your PR. You should do a 301 redirect to your new domain from the...
Wow that's a really cool feature... nice one from the big G!
Happy Birthday fellow Netbuilders! Thanks for making this such a great community and one of the few websites I visit every day!
Here's to another year of health, happiness and even more success! ...
A little off the point of your question, but you really shouldn't be getting information about your own sites from Alexa. Their stats are no where near as accurate as your own stat logs.
Here is what it says in the FAQ section of that website:

A few years ago a huge data set was leaked from AOL which showed the following click through shares for the top 10 results on G:
What have you been doing differently?
Thanks for letting us know... I still don't have a link in my account though :(
Please give us some more details once you've gotten a chance to play around with the new interface a bit more.
The additional metrics are mentioned in the Inside Adsense post:
Wow so you're at 200k for this year? That's not too shabby! :thumbsup:
You can check which one people are searching for more using a keyword tool then use that one.
I'm pretty sure he is referring to Xmas :)
Yeah could be, but looks to me more like he's writing his posts in another language and then using machine translation before posting.
What in God's name are you saying man? :confused:
Good luck with the project Kovich and thanks for sharing! :)
One question, why are you using AdBrite and not Adsense? Does it pay better in this niche?
I use XSitePro for a few of my sites and would definitely recommend it. It is super easy to have a static website up and running in a couple of hours, and adding content later is a breeze. But as...
Did you use the "Exact" criterion in the Adwords tool or is that number based on the "Broad" selection?
Good luck mate! Keep us posted :)
Sounds like a pretty long-term solution to me :D
Google has just announced that they are testing out a new Adsense interface with a few publishers. The new interface looks pretty sweet and promises to add loads of cool new features and much more...
Out of the million monthly searches, how many are from the UK?
I'm seeing your post in the number one position.
The syntax for checking backlinks is
You have an extra 's' in link in your code. Try the search again and you should get a much lower number.
I was checking out your content services site and have a few comments:
- At first glance, it is not at all clear what this page is about. The first thing I notice is "Erin Farley"...
Yeah actually I do. That says "Israel" in Arabic.
You should probably call it a "language" since that's what it is; one of the oldest ones as well :rolleyes:
Or Chandler Bing :rofl:
Mine was converted into a distributeyourarticles.com account, but the service hasn't started yet. When I login it says "20 hours" until they open. Has the contentcrooner service launched already?
Vote given :)
So I went to ArticleMarketer.com to login and distribute some articles as usual and I found that they have decided to retire the website and create 2 new article marketing services instead. I'm not...
Oh, just noticed Will didn't have the "use synonyms" option checked. I guess that's what causes the difference then. Better keep it checked :)
I just did the exact same search and "mexico vacation deals" was showing right where it's supposed to be. Do you think it might have been a glitch?
Regardless of whether or not Ezine accepts it, I would strongly recommend against doing this. You are devaluing your website by making the content on it "duplicate content".
Google may not know...
The word "free" in your domain won't be affecting the Adsense ads on most of your content pages.
If, for example, you build a page entitled "Building a website" on a domain called...
My advice would be to target the exact keyword; go for the one with the higher traffic.
I have several sites that rank extremely differently on plural and singular forms of the same keyword. I...
Well Google.com would have been worthless because they would have just called it something else :D
You can create content around the frame, or it can rank through an exact match keyword domain.
Or, you can integrate a store into an existing website which is already receiving traffic (probably...
Just add it anywhere between the <head> and </head> tags on your site.
Your site is still indexed in Google
That means there is no violation or anything like that, and you don't need to request reconsideration.
The rankings for any relatively new website on google...
I've also integrated a similar store in one of my sites... no sales yet but it's only been there for a couple of weeks and the traffic to the site isn't enormous.
One tip regarding the iframe code...
Yes, you certainly can. I do it all the time :)
Is there any way to change the code for this snippet so that it shows the visitors coming from G Images as referred from images (or anything else) instead of direct traffic?
Since applying this...
Which causes another issue since MSN's crawler most of the time takes forever to start even crawling a new site, let alone indexing and ranking it. :smash:

I know... I need help :o
Umm...at the risk of repeating my self... have you considered submitting a reconsideration request to google? :confused:
That happened to me a couple of times in the past. I submitted a reconsideration request from Google Webmaster Tools and a couple of days later the site was indexed.
Now, I'm not sure whether the...
I've always been convinced that one of the main flaws of Microsoft's search engine, aside from its crappy results, was how slow the crawler was in searching and indexing new sites.
Although I can...
Oh, I see... guess I misunderstood the original post. :D
For how long have you both been translating your pages?
Just want to see if the penalty might take some time to materialise.
Which one have you been using? The NB translation script or something else?
Confirm payment received.
That's exactly what I was thinking. The page just looks horrible!
Yeah, my problem is that I'm not using Wordpress so I'm trying to find something else.
Guess I'll just have to keep looking...
Has anyone tried "WebSitesTranslator"?
I'm thinking of getting it, but $65 is a bit steep for a shot in the dark.
Yes you would get paid for image ads like you would for regular ads.
You can choose to not allow image ads in adsense setup if you wish, although I wouldn't recommend that.
Excellent tip, thanks for sharing!
Just applied it on one of my sites that gets a lot of G images traffic and it worked like a charm :D
And of course another week passes by and no news on this refund.
You know, this has nothing to do with me wanting or needing the money. It is simply a matter of principal; I paid for a service...
Yeah I found the same message a few days ago. I've never used Adwords but I think I might give it a shot this time.
I mean $100 worth of clicks could mean loooads of traffic in certain niches. :D
Interesting new addition to Adsense.
Should help increase the CPC for the ads.

I usually sign in through my adsense page, but don't think that makes any difference. Like others have said, you just need to change the date found on the top right of the screen, then select a range...
My sites get updated constantly throughout the day; definitely not just once.
Not sure what is wrong with your account though.
Your safest and quickest bet is to sign up for a blog on blogger, post a couple of posts, then apply for adsense. You will be approved immediately.
It's 6 months, not years.
Last month I hit $220. This month is at $195 so far... it should hopefully surpass last month :)
Have you looked at the exact match domain bonus during your tests? Is the bonus higher or lower than it is now?
As usual a very vague email from the G with no specific details about what they are doing. :thumbdown:
That sounds like a very probable explanation for this.
Check your inbox... we've been through this before....I've already PM'ed you all the details you need a week ago with the paypal transaction ID.
Not really... he's made posts yesterday and today in other threads :rolleyes:
Yeah the Diamond comes with Opera pre-installed, it's a pretty awesome browser! :)
I was just wondering if there is some app that would offer quicker access to adsense to quickly check earnings...
I've got a HTC Touch Diamond.
No I haven't tried that. How do you set it up?
And yet another week passes by with no reply to forum posts nor PM's.
You know, for a "sticky" carrot you're actually quite slippery! :rofl:
Does anyone know if there is a windows mobile compatible application for easily monitoring your adsense earnings while you're on the go?
I can confidently say that exact match .com/.net/.org domains rank very high on google with relatively much less effort than is required for a non-exact match domain. Have tested this with several...
