Read the full article, How AdSense Publishers Should Use Google’s New ‘Matched Content’ Tool
So far, im unimpressed. I think they look terrible.
I figured as much as you watch your AdSense, you might have some input.
yeah, it needs serious design work IMO.
I installed it as a test here: http://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/showthread.php?t=299093
All the way at the bottom... I set it to a custom size of 728x200
From what I understand, its only purpose is to draw people to other parts of the site to increase pageviews, which isn't something forums really need to do.
Yeah I see it needs to be a bit better with handling the content in different sizes. It looks just totally wrong displaying two and a half threads in the slider.
Im wondering if this is some kind of prelude to a different ad type ---
It's quite possible. I notice the thread titles have links that start off like this:
Yeah -- I haven't clicked any as I couldn't find anywhere that said I could and im not risking my adsense account, so I don't know if it just links to the page or what.
I did not click any either.
So I'm not eligible? :|
scroll down on that page a little and look through your owned sites. On the far right for each site it will say approved or not approved
Sadly I don't see it :?
I don't know- for me its on the right side on each line
I too don't see anything on mine. Guess I'm not eligible either.
I don't have it either, and I get 3-5m page views on my forum a month. Strange.
I tried it for a week and then removed it, my users hated it. (I placed it blow the quick reply box)
It was displayed 2,357,355 times and had a total of 173 clicks.
I put it in the footer, got 10 million displays, and 837 clicks.
Im going to try a different size and see if that does anything.
bump - Anybody using matched content? Is it worthwhile? I'm not really sure what it does, lol, has anybody got any examples I can see? Thanks.
Read the documentation: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/6111336?hl=en
I have just started to use matched content (placed in ad_below_content template in XF). However, it only shows text link (as I don't have many posts with images), and it looks really ugly.
Is there a way to add some default picture/site logo so that it is visible in a nicer form? Also, is it really helpful from your experience? Thanks.
