    i cant believe this. i log into adsense to do some color changes and now im seeing that along with the advertising and along with the free link to google, they are now including "relevent searches" in the lower left box. as far as i can see, we arent getting paid for this at all!

    unbelievable!

    I don't like it and am just shy of the payout mark. If I pull it, I don't get paid. If I leave it, I have a leak.

    Interesting move on Googles part.

    It's been temporarily deactivated due to all the complaints. Got to give Google credit, they do move quickly and listen to peoples comments.

    WOW! What a company! They took it off, within 24 hours of implementaion...

    Incredible! Lesson to some who don't give rat's ass about what their partners think.

    Google is always working to optimize our services for both publishers and
    users alike. As a result, you may see changes to the AdSense program over
    time.

    We appreciate your feedback about the Related Searches feature. Even
    though we tested this feature with a number of publishers, it appears that
    it is causing concerns we didn't fully anticipate. Because we believe in
    the potential value of Related Searches and want it to work for all of our
    publishers, we've decided to temporarily disable this feature until we can
    address all of the concerns.

    We'll soon re-release this feature with greater flexibility for web
    publishers. We're optimistic that this new approach will effectively meet
    the needs of all of our AdSense participants and provide a way to enhance
    the overall value of your ad space.

    We encourage you to continue to send us suggestions for new features
    and/or let us know what you think of the changes that we make. Your
    feedback is vital to the success of this program.

    Sincerely,

    The Google Team


    And...
    You may have also noticed that a ‘Related Searches’ feature was
    released last night. We tested this feature with a number of
    publishers; however, when we released it more broadly, we started
    receiving feedback about concerns we didn't fully anticipate.
    Because we want this to work for everyone, we’ve decided to
    temporarily disable this feature until we can better address the
    concerns. We’ll re-release this feature shortly with greater
    flexibility for web publishers. When we do, we’ll let you know.

    WOW! If I had had the time, I might have put adsense on some of my pages. Boy, would THAT have ticked me off. Now, I am going to certainly wait until I see how this develops.

    Talk about a major leak and sending my hard won viewers to my direct competitors then not even pay me! I can't even tell you how angry I would have been because there are no words left to express it. So, AdSense

    On the other hand, if you put it on non-sales pages it does seem to work quite well. It certainly covers my hosting fees, which is always my yardstick.

    I have been running adsense for about 24 hours now. Wow, definately worth putting on your site if you can open an account.

    Well worth the time it has taken me to add the code to some of my pages.

    Does anyone know how often they update the reports?
