    I'm doing some research and wanted to know what your biggest complaint is with google adsense.

    1) Not making any money?

    2) To much competition?

    3) Can't get traffic?

    If you have any others please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Victoria.

    What do you mean by too much competition? Too many sites in your niche?

    I think so..
    The main problem is that google adsense pays low. But thats mainly our fault isnt it? With all the click groups and fradaunt clicks that the only way for google to stay alive. I think that Google is doing great service to the internet and that 80% of the net wouldn't be the same without them:cool:

    Victoria, your three points (1) Not making any money?, (2) To much competition? and (3) Can't get traffic? is NOT something Google AdSense is responsible for. So the question of complaining does not arise.
    One can *accuse* AdSense only for things they take care of.

    Here is one from me:
    Google: Include text description in the clickable area
    The ad TITLE and URL are too small on certain formats.

    Exactly!

    I'd say either smartpricing or too many MFA's accepted as advertisers.

    Not any of the three you mentioned. My Biggest Complaints are:

    -Not doing anything to protect publishers: If some one clicks fraud you, they do not count those clicks which is the right thing to do, but also they might ban the publishers too even knowing they may not be responsible for the fraud.

    - Accepting MFA sites: Sites that give you 0.01$ for a click, while publishers try to block those sites, it's too hard to do because new ones always appear.It would be very easy if Google did not accept them in the first place, AdSense check publishers sites before accepting them, why not Advertisers too?!

    Google adsense doesn't pay low. It's the advertisers paying low. I'm generating $30/day from adsense. You need the traffic and content to make money.

    Smartpricing bugs me, and the lack of transparency. You don't know which site is causing smart pricing and it affects all the sites in your portfolio. You still will never know if smart priced whether Google is taking the full revenue??? hence transparency for me is an issue. But G is still the best but has become increasingly difficult to make real decent money.
