We have been covering Google Ad Manager since its launch and also since we started using it. The biggest complaint from shoemoney readers was that they could not get accepted into the beta.

Well its now open to everyone who has a Adsense account.

From the Adsense blog:

Now we’re excited to bring those benefits to all publishers. If you have an AdSense account, you can sign in to Ad Manager today. If not, apply for an AdSense account now. A Google AdSense account is a technical requirement for creating an Ad Manager account.

Google Ad manager is pretty awesome. I highly recommend you give it a whirl.

    1. Same – it’s about time!! πŸ˜›
      I like how they allow you to use other ad networks, not just adsense

  1. not having this was just one of the reasons why i never used adsense. I will take another look and see if it is worth it compared to just rotating my own affiliate ads.
    Really im going to have a hard time seeing a situation where adsense makes me more money than a awll placed and well chosen aff link.
    what say you? when do YOU think adsense makes more sense?
    thanks and take care,
    Bry

    1. Adsense makes sense in that it takes so little effort to setup and maintain. Agree that there is better money to be made with direct sales/affiliates.

  2. Watching the tutorials now. This tool looks simply amazing with all of the features that they have added into it!

  3. Excellent news for those that didn’t get in already πŸ™‚

    Btw, thanks for adding rpelies back πŸ™‚

  4. I have been using it for 3 months, it’s cool but I actually prefer OpenX. Call me old fashioned I guess….

  5. It is literally inconceivable that I have not won the t-shirt contest yet. Stupid rand() !!!!

  6. I had already been accepted by invitation, but I’m using Google Ad Manager on one of my sites & it’s great.

  7. Google AdManager is great, I have tried it and there are lots of great features.

    1. I think it’s amazing that Google is offering such a powerful tool for free. This is something that would sell for hundreds of dollars at least. Even a simple ad manager for Joomla is expensive!

      1. It follows with the way google works – they offer many great
        services for free, I guess it means that they can be sure of
        getting a good take up. I wonder how much it costs google
        to do the free stuff compared to their income?

  8. Managed to blag’ an invite to the beta a while back, it is an interesting product, bit of an arse moving over from a different system (OpenX or whatever) but I really like it so far. The Geo-Targeting is a great feature btw.

    The only gripe is every time I paste code into the Creative it gives back an error the first time (every time).

    Other than that a great tool for your rotations, I think it will encourage more people to move away (to an extent) from just using adsence and experiment with other sources of banners.

    1. you need to have an adsense account to be able to use Google Ad Manager. “A Google AdSense account is a technical requirement for creating an Ad Manager account.”

  9. Didn’t mess with the Beta version but this should come in handy. Google never disappoints other than with a few low CPC through adsense from time to time.

  10. Step1. He uploads porn on my site
    Step2. He reports me to google
    Step3. I get banned for eternity
    Step4. Post useless for me
    Step5. /cry

  11. and here I thought I was lucky early last week when I got the email that my application was finally accepted. Very nice tool though, great potential all around.

  12. Woo hoo!!! I have been wanting to revamp my adsense ads for some time now. What a great excuse to jump right into the new beta. Your Aw3som3z0rz Shoe, as allways.

  13. I have been looking forward to this for quite some time, Google seems to be making a lot of positive changes and listening to their customers feedback, what a nice change from the status quo.

  14. This is a significant improvement to the simple setup screen that exist. I wonder if they will move the Manage Ads, section into this new manager.

  15. Wow, another great move for Google. I really donÒ€ℒt know about that Adsense Ad Manager thing.. how it works, etc.

  16. It is not really geared towards small publishers, it was developed and being developed for big to huge publishers.

  17. GOOGLE ADSENSE FUCKING SUCKS! It is a sham. It only serves Google’s pockets and share holders.

    99.9% of web publishers & advertisers get screwed and either are wasting their time or money. Do Not listen to these self proclaimed blogging experts, they have an agenda and are trying to con you out of your money!!!

    1. This is a very one-sided view. I think you can not propose an alternative. This means that your words is empty.

  18. Maybe I should start using AdSense again as just the Ad Manager itself opening up for everyone (like me) is tempting… πŸ˜‰ Hopefully, I’ll start seeing better results with AdSense when using this.

  19. Google just rocks! Hands down, it’s hard to beat ’em – these guys just keep stickin’ their super effecient noses everywhere…

    Sooner or later we’ll be buying gas at a Google Station, and filling up our tires with Google Air, and munching on a McGoogleburgers &

    1. (whoops) environmentally friendly, low carb Google iFries.

      but until Big Brother drops the iron boot, I’ll keep rockin’ the freebies πŸ˜›

      Probably not for most of your audience, but ad management at this level is new to me – I’m really looking forward to introducing this to my sites – this MUST make running a network of sites a whole lot easier.

  20. It’s nice that Google has the admanager ability, it’s so easy to access everything without remembering a million and a half passwords and logins through Google.

  21. Great that google is offering ad manager service for free. I hope there will be significant up rise in earning with adsense.

  22. Thanks for the article, this is just what I needed (besides a bigger filter of course}

  23. Does anyone know if you can use Admanager with glyphius, which I currently use with adsense and adwords?

  24. Ah must waited tracking tool for me :). But I am also kind of concerned about the amount of information I am opening by for google lately πŸ™‚
