Google AdSense is now offering more insights into how much you’re earning and the factors that impact those earnings with the recently added “Show events” checkbox or through a “separate event report.”
“Change events” are automatically generated and are shown as small flags on a reporting graphs. “Those annotations help you keep track of the actions you’ve taken in your account, like adding a new ad unit or blocking an additional category, and help you determine the impact of your changes,” Google said.
In addition, to automatically generated events, Google also now lets you manually add notes you want to keep track of. “This will allow you to find out whether actions which aren’t directly related to your AdSense account, like a website redesign or an advertising campaign for your site, may have had an impact on your earnings,” google explains.
Every user can see all the notes which have been added to an account by other users and can add, edit, and delete their own customized notes.
To add a personalized annotation, visit the ‘Performance reports’ tab in your account. Click on ‘Add note’ directly below the graph to add a new annotation to your report.
