Yesterday I was approved for the Google AdWords / AdSense affiliate program. I asked a few of you to sign up with my affiliate links to Google AdWords and/or Google AdSense, in order to see if they are skimming or something.
Later that day, I emailed the individual over at Google that told me my affiliate code links. I asked him how do I log in and see how my ads are doing, in order to make changes to increase the CTR, etc. I got a reply very quickly, they have been very responsive, with the following message:
While we don't currently have the ability to give you real time access to that information (i.e. - a portal that you can log into to see the clicks and bounties), we can provide that information to you at periodic intervals.
I am a trusting guy, so it doesn't bother me. And I am sure they will have some login feature when they go prime-time with this.
