Google adsense new ad management overview

As usual ever day i sign in to my adsense account to see how much revenue i made. I am very sure any blogger who is an adsense publisher do the same routine. And as usual i received new message from adsense about new ad management overview. This features will be rolling out in a phases in another few weeks. Just wait and see the changes in our publisher account for adsense latest feature.

Finally, the re-paste work is over. When i made a changes in my adsense ad, i need to re-paste the adsense code at my site too. But this time, google adsense seems to know what their publisher thinking. The new ad management feature allow it user to save details about an AdSense unit, including ad size, colors, and channel settings, on google adsense servers. Keeping the details on servers is much better than in the ad code on your pages, you can make changes to the AdSense units on your pages from within your account. Don't you think this is really good news!

Now google offer an option for us to create new AdSense units which we can customize and update within our account to see changes directly on our site. Example, when i creating new AdSense unit, details of the ad unit (like colors and channels) will be stored in my AdSense account. This gives me faster, simpler ad management, allowing me to make changes to an AdSense unit instantly without needing to re-paste the ad code or make additional changes to the page itself. The option to manage ads from within our account is only available for adsense for content units for the time being.

Just wait and see google adsense next level.

Google Apps Gets Enterprise Partner

Google Apps, Google service for running corporate email, calendaring and documents, has gotten a new partner in the form of Capgemini, a major systems consulting firm. Capgemini will incorporate Google Apps into its outsourcing service, which currently manages over a million corporate desktop PCs. The goal of the partnership is to bring Apps into larger companies, past just the educational and small business clients the service currently enjoys.

Regarding the big question, if Google Apps is even ready for big companies,
Nick Carr got an interesting answer from Capgemini outsourcing exec Steve Jones:

I asked Jones about the commonly heard claim that Google Apps, while fine for little organizations, isn’t “enterprise-ready.” He scoffed at the notion, saying that the objection is just a smokescreen that some CIOs are “hiding behind.” Google Apps, he says, is “already being used covertly” in big companies, behind the backs of IT staffers. The time has come, he argues, to bring Apps into the mainstream of IT management in order to ensure that important data is safeguarded and compliance requirements are met. Jones foresees “a lot of big companies” announcing the formal adoption of Apps.

They go on to say that Apps will be marketed as a complement to Microsoft Office, but that it should prove a good idea for employees who the company can’t afford to give copies of Office. Both are interesting arguments, but here’s a counter:

Yes, some employees are using Gmail behind the scenes instead of their corporate email, but plenty are using Hotmail or Yahoo Mail. Employees are always going to have personal webmail accounts in addition to their corporate accounts, and it proves no trend.

If the arguments goes beyond that, that employees are collaborating in secret with Google Docs, as surprising as that may be, it wouldn’t surprise me if plenty of those employees are also using OpenOffice. In fact, It would surprise me even less if stats backed up this hypothesis: More outsourced employees, without licensed copies of Microsoft Office, are pirating Office than using a free alternative.

I’ve long argued that at $50 per user per year, Apps is either barely cheaper than Microsoft Office, or actually more expensive as that subscription fee adds up. This decision can’t be made on a purely financial basis, but has to be won on features.

Both Carr and
TechCrunch point out the obvious problems with accounting under current U.S. law, and the fact that no new customers were being announced with this news. Supposedly a big telco is going to announce a switch to Google Apps on some of its computers, so we’ll have to wait and see.
