How Google Can Keep AdSense "Great"

May 29, 2009 • 7:10 am | comments (3) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdSense

A WebmasterWorld thread has discussion around what it will take for Google AdSense to "remain great." Clearly, you must first agree that AdSense is "great," and if you do, then we need to agree on what must be done for it to remain that way.

Some of the suggestions in the thread include:

  • Accept only sites with 5,000 daily visitors or more
  • Go back to the basics
  • Drop smart pricing
  • Relax the AdSense algorithm
  • Penalize sites that copy content
  • Less AdSense Spammers
  • More & better advertisers

There are other suggestions in the thread, plus not everyone agrees with all of these suggestions.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.

Haha! Very funny. By accepting only sites with 5,000+ visitors, Google would be concentrating the advertising dollars in a much smaller share of the market. Maybe it would make more sense for Google to concentrate only on sites with 100,000+ daily visitors. Let's see how well that idea floats with people who want to "improve" AdSense. The market will support whatever it supports. I wish they'd bring back the AdSense video units. Those were money makers for me. I'm only just starting to see a recovery in the traditional advertising, but will that be sustainable?

accept only sites with 5000 daily visitors ???does that mean so many micro-niche sites will not be selected for adsense ?the other things that are listed are fine.

not 100% sure I agree with all the points but something needs to be done to keep things fresh, I think we should stop brand new sites advertising, the whole point of seo is to stop rouges being visible in Google, ppc means anyone can sell to huge audiences overnight <a href="">bristol jobs</a>
