keywords. I did first more simple keywords that attracted many clicks,
cost much and brought no sells. So I had to specify my keywords so that
the ad is not shown so often but for the eyes of people who could more
possible make a purchase on my page. This worked better, this keywords
generated about 1-20 views daily and 0-2 clicks daily. Thats what I
need! I dont want a lot of traffic that costs a lot without generating
money. I want to appear on search results only if there is someone
searching really close to what I am offering.
But what happened: Google took my keywords offline "Waitingmode",
"Testmode" (in german "Wartephase" or "Testphase") or even "Disabled".
Of course I talk to the google support. They told me to use more
specific keywords to reach more people. OK, I already HAVE the more
specific keywords I can have, and I DONT WANT TO REACH EVERYBODY!
They say "Its no error of google", I say IT IS A GOOGLE ERROR. A human
error of the programmer. After receiving 3 times the same useless
answers from google support, I quit, I am through with this!
Re: Google adsense stinks
AdSense pretty much re-uses the mechanism from the search engine. It comes
as-is and the algorithm does a certain thing. If you complain to Google
about the algorithm, it is unlikely they will review and change it. It
would have affected many people if they did.
I guess my message is: you must adapt to AdSense rather than expect AdSense
to adapt to you. Google AdSense is a free product just as a lawyer is; it
takes its cut from the profits. Things would be different had you paid to
get it installed...
