Hi following the email series from adsense called "Google AdSense: Invest in your website" (did you received them and read it?) I took them to their word since they said that if we submit to them before / after screenshots along with explanation of what I have changed following their advice, they will send AdSense goodies to the best ones, the deadline was 20th june, so of course, me being me, it was 21st minus 5 hours when I finally submitted everything.
We've provided a couple of useful resources at the end of this email for more information on design guidelines. Just like the last week, we'll be asking those of you who have made changes to your site to submit your recent implementations by filling this form and sending your before and after website screenshots to firstname.lastname@example.org. The top three selected implementations will receive Google goodies in the end.
So I'll let you know how it goes, if I receive something or hear from them again. But without talking about this little contest, I have to say that the changes impress me :-) This is so nice now I'd like to own this site! :-)
I'd like to know two things if you have time to answer:
1. of course, what do you think about the changes, can you even see them? (you have to be loggued out to see adsense ads, as you know)
2. did you receive and read this email series? And what did you think of it, did it prompt you to improve your site / blog or not? If you have, was it beneficial, I mean was it time invested or time wasted?
