Custom reporting isn't just a sport or just a way to get your weekly earnings it's much better than that. I am going to show you a method I use to keep tract of things going on in my many all about Google adsense campaigns. First create a folder on your computer. Name it "Google AdSense Log" or something close. Next inside the folder name a new folder with a weekly name say "Sept-14-to-21" this way you know what time frame it is. Next go inside the folder and in there save a text file, but not just any normal text file I want you to put in all the details of your Google AdSense ad units. From color to placement everything covered in my channels article . Now that you know what time frame and what the ads you are you know everything about what you did with your Google AdSense units. Save that file to that corresponding folder. And at the end of the week save the CVS file you get to that folder. This way you not only have what you did but the fruits of your labor as well. You can use this for a month each time creating anew folder for a new week to see with things you tried worked best. Now this assumes you don't change your Google AdSense ad units during the weeks, and just wait for a new week to try something new. At the end of the month you can decide which methods worked to bring you more revenue. This is just one of the many ways you can use Google AdSense custom reporting to your advantage.
