As part of the Adsense In Your City program I got a chance to meet with several members of the Adsense Team today.
The team reviewed a few presentations and talked about several new & different ways to optimize websites for increased earnings and also presented a few tools such as Google DFP for Small Business and Adsense for Search Ads-only (now renamed Custom Search Ads). They also answered several questions from the group and even cleared up a few rumors and misconceptions.
After the presentations every publisher in the group got 15-20 minutes of one-on-one time with an Adsense team member to review and optimize our sites. My team-member (“Jane”, far left in the photo at the bottom) gave me a few suggestions and ideas during my one-on-one optimization time which I’ll be testing over the next few days.
The Adsense in Your City program is a great way for Adsense publishers to give feedback to the Adsense team, get those burning Adsense questions answered, and even meet other local Adsense publishers. Be sure you Opt-In to receive notices from the Adsense team (Adsense account|Personal settings) so you can get notified if/when the Adsense team comes to your area.
