Adsense launched Direct Bank Transfer for Publishers in India

Google Adsense has finally, yes finally for once realised the fact that the webmasters and publishers in India are worth taking serious! For years, nearly a decade Google Adsense program for indian publishers never had the option to get a direct wire transfer and instead had to go through a month long wait for receiving their Adsense payment.

It used to be a Google Check from Citibank in the name of the account holder and this had to be deposited at the bank in person. The process was really painstaking and used to consume a lot of time until now.

How does it work now?

Google India has now made it possible for the Adsense publishers or website owners to connect / link their Adsense account to any bank in India and enable “wire transfer” as their mode of payment. Once configured and activated, webmasters receive the funds from 2 – 4 days period right in their account.

I know webmasters receiving their funds in less than 10 hours which makes it a really awesome advancement. Most importantly, it makes tracking, followup, fund receiving much easier and you don’t have to take out time to deposit the check making the entire process easy. Appreciate this awesome feature addition to the Adsense program (even though it was much delayed for India).

Scorecard – Google AdSense Launched New Feature

Scorecard – Google AdSense Launched New Feature

Today I observed a new widget / section added to the Google AdSense Dashboard called “Scorecard”. This seems to be a very helpful feature intended to aid publishers to improve their AdSense revenue. The scorecard on the Home tab of your account provides you with a summary of how well are your ad settings, webpages, content performing when compared to other AdSense publishers.

Your scorecard is organized into different categories like Revenue optimization, Site health, Google+ etc. for each parameter you receive a score of one to five cute little blue dots. If you have lesser dots for each area that means you have potential area of improvement. When there are errors or issues to fix, it is depicted by an exclamation mark.

Google officially encourages the fixing of such errors and making necessary actions because that will in turn improve your own earnings as a publisher for Google AdSense. Read more about the new feature on Google’s official blog post.
