Google AdSense Tests Searching For Targeted Ads in Console

Dec 23, 2009 • 8:34 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Google AdSense

Last night I received an email from Google about a new feature available in my AdSense account, as a beta. The feature basically allows me to search for ads that are targeted towards my site. Searching for ads makes it a bit easier to find and block or allow these ads from being shown on my pages.

Here is a picture of the new feature:

Subject: Announcing Search in the AdSense Ad Review Center


As a beta tester of the new AdSense interface, you'll soon be able to use the Ad Review Center to search for ads that are targeted to your site. This new search functionality is designed to improve your efficiency when finding ads to review, based on feedback we've received from publishers.

To start searching for ads, sign in to your AdSense account. If you're presented with the previous interface, click the "Try new AdSense" link in the upper right-hand corner. Then, visit the "Allow & block ads" tab. You'll find the "Search ads" link in the left-hand navigation bar, where you can search by keyword text or ad URL. Learn more about search in our Help Center at

We invite you to provide us with your feedback about this new beta feature, using the 'Provide feedback' link in the upper right-hand corner of your account. Thanks in advance for your input, and we look forward to incorporating your suggestions into this new feature.

The feature doesn't seem to work fully for me yet, but I suspect it to be very useful for many publishers once it goes fully live.
