Tip of the Month
+1 Reporting is now available
In our last issue we told you all about the +1 button and how it can help you drive more and better qualified traffic to your site. This time, we’re excited to share the new reporting tools Google has designed to help you keep track of your +1 activity.
The best place to find out how the +1 button is performing is in Google Webmaster Tools . You can get more information on how much additional organic search traffic the +1 button is bringing to your pages, how many times your pages have been +1′d by your users and demographic information for those users. If you haven’t done so already, you’ll need to verify your site on Google Webmaster Tools to get access to these features. In addition to this, Google Analytics is offering the new Social Plug-in Analytics tool. This will give you insight into the different types of actions taking place in your site once users reach it. You’ll be able to compare behavior between users who +1 your pages and those who don’t, as well as track other social actions and see which pages are driving the highest number of them.
Platforms Performance Report
You can now access a brand new report in your AdSense account. It allows you to see which platforms your visitors are using to access your site and the breakdown of your earnings according to each platform; desktop, high-end mobile devices, and other mobile devices.
Learn how to use it to optimize your site.
The AdSense Optimisation Team
We recently clarified the language in our program policies to ban the misuse of iframes that alter behavior targeting or the appearance of AdSense ads.
We published this blog post to explain the reasoning behind this policy and examples of inappropriate use of iframes.
A new powerful feature called multi-dimension reporting is now available in the new interface. You can now add dimensions to your performance reports to sort and view data across multiple dimensions, including viewing a channel by date or an ad unit by targeting type.
