Google Adsense Referrals targetted ads

Previously, Google Referrals refers to referral programs where we earn a little money when someone signs up through our referral or download the Firefox and Picasa. I am not sure when this has been changed. When I clicked on the Referral button :


what I get is not the usual banners but instead, it leads me to a different panel.


It says there :

Google Referrals allow you to choose specific products or groups of products to advertise on your site, allowing you to match ads to your content.

Choose up to 15 products or specific ads to rotate in the referral unit. You can also choose categories and keywords to ensure you get newer ads as they become available.

It seems that they now enable us to select the kind of ads we want. Since I was setting up Adsense for my food blog with a new template, I selected three categories :


I selected Malaysia > English, ie Adsense in English for ads targetting Malaysia in the categories of Food + Health + Travel. So, far the ads appearing on Best Recipes are almost what I selected.

I hope to see a better [tag]Google Adsense[/tag] income from this selection. Anyway, my Best Recipes site has fetched me very decent income as it rules in several good keywords. Monthly, I get about RM500 from the site alone, just from Adsense. So, do you think writing a recipe and food site pays? Of course!

    […] of us are lucky enough to be given the chance to test this out, like Auntie Lillian a.k.a. 5xmom. I am not as lucky, though. Maybe because my AdSense performance is not so […]
