Over the next few weeks, the way in which around two million people and organizations make their living (or at least earn additional income) will change. Google announced this morning that it's rolling out a new AdSense interface for publishers.
This should be quite an event. The launch starts today, and is meant to occur on a global scale, so it will soon be visible in 30 languages and 200 countries. Also, about a year's worth of testing took place to ensure there's little to fear in the way of glitches and bugs.
As for what sorts of features are on tap, a post on the Inside AdSense blog explained, "You can now run even more detailed performance reports by ad type, ad size, ad unit, targeting type, and bid type for total earnings and other metrics, over custom date ranges. You'll also find graphs of your data on the new Performance reports tab."
Furthermore, "All ad controls are now in one place, on the Allow and block ads tab. Here, you'll be able to filter ads from specific advertisers, categories, and ad networks. In addition, you'll notice that we've updated the ad review center to make it easier to review and manage ads that have been placement-targeted to your sites."
And finally, "The new interface allows you to quickly see your earnings and payment information, find relevant features, and make changes to your account. It also brings relevant help and other resources, like videos and blog posts, right into the interface, so you can get the information you need without leaving your account."
We wish publishers luck adjusting and taking your AdSense earnings to new heights.
