Review: WelcomHotel, Vadodara

Tired after exploring various things in Vadodara, we reached WelcomHotel where we were staying. As we stepped into the lobby, soothing music relaxed our nerves and instead of rushing to our room, we sat in the lobby and started enjoying the live music being played by two gentlemen sitting on the floor. One of them had 30 odd big and small bowls filled with water and by playing with bamboo sticks he was producing music – technically this setup is called Jal Tarang. A tabla player gave company...

Intro to Feed Placements

In times like these, we know that generating as much revenue as possible is on many publishers' minds. This will be the first of many posts that will hope to explain how to better configure AdSense for feeds to help maximize revenue. Before going into specifics though, it's important to understand a couple important differences in how your subscribers are different from visitors on your website.  If you use an analytics package for your site such as Google Analytics, most publishers will see ...

Be it declared, a map for every feed!

One of the most compelling reasons that publishers choose FeedBurner is that it gives them the tools to record and analyze how many users are consuming their content. Late last week, we launched an enhancement to our item statistics that enables publishers to get a bit more information about those users. Similar to the feature by the same name in Google Analytics, the "Map Overlay" page provides a breakdown of the previous day's item statistics from a geographic perspective. For feeds with ite...

Los colores bonitos, or how I learned to stop worrying and compare multiple feed metrics.

If you've been knocking about within FeedBurner using your Google Account, you may have noticed that the original "french fry" chart from the Analyze tab of the original is no more. This venerable bar chart, with its green picket fence of subscriber trend results, has been the first stop for many publishers when checking their feed analytics for years. In its place is new green-ness (and blue-ness) that communicates three times as much information in the same space, and sets the s...

"Afternoon, Frank." "Hey howdy, George."

It's about time these two neighbors got to talking to each other. Most Saturday afternoons you'd find them politely waving as they passed at each other by with their push mowers, tending to their neatly manicured tables, charts, and graphs. It just made sense that the grounds would look that much more complete if they removed a bit of fence between them. And so they've done just that. If you use either AdSense for feeds or Google FeedBurner to track item clicks and also use Google Analytics, as...

AdSense policy clarification on using AdSense for feeds and AdSense for content

This is just a quick clarification on AdSense for feeds as it relates to the AdSense for Content specific of only allowing three ad units and three link units per page. Many publishers have asked the question "Since feed items often get displayed with many feed items on a single web page, can using AdSense for feeds jeopardize the status of my AdSense account?"

The 411 on the 502
