It seems as though I almost need to hire a full time manager to monitor the CPM value of some of my major sites Then switch accourding to what is paying out the best. Especially when the difference could be thousands per day. Yahoo and Google are pretty close CPM wise for me on average but some channels will see huge spikes either way on certain days or certain times.

I was contemplating writing a tool that would log in to my adsense account and ypn accounts automatically say…. once a hour, check the cpm value and then adjust the rotation weight per channel based on what is paying more at the time. I think it would be fairly simple to write but what about the TOS…. I am going to have to talk to my adsense and yahoo reps and get there take if this would be acceptable.

This would sure be a nice serverside tool imo as a publisher you would always get the highest payout.

  1. that would definently be a good tool, even if it just sent a report hourly or so, then you could even manually adjust

  2. i don’t see why that would be against tos? people can log in and do it hourly themselves?

  3. Unless im missing something i thought adsense data was never real time so if you wanted to do what your asking it would be on a rounded estimate approximation method. Still dooable but not very accurate. Unless google provides api’s for realtime data?

  4. Very cool idea. But at least for me, YPN doesn’t show the per-channel data until the next day – do you have some sort of super-premium program where you can see the channel data in real-time?

  5. Really good point. I guess you could do a 10% margin based on delayed dailly and then also adjust for market trends and time of day advertising based on previous data.

  6. ahhh crappersauce really? I dont use channels in ypn so I didnt know that. I guess you could just set threshholds..

  7. Actually I have talked to google about it and its ok as long as it doesnt go more then one a hour. Still waiting on word from yahoo

  8. […] Shoemoney.com brings up their thoughts on rotating and optimizing their delivery of Adsense and YPN based on reporting data. […]

  9. I’ve been thinking about doing this as well. Seems like a good idea. Might need tweaking based on timeframes though.

  10. 4 years ago I wrote an article about Adsense top earners. On the top of the list was Markus Frind from Plentyoffish.com with 300 000$ monthly. Second was Kevin Rose from Digg.com with 250 000$. For some time, I’m less interested in the topic, so I do not know who is on the top now. Do you know anything about this?
