Changing Adsense details
  • Hi folks,
    When you purchase a website and are changing the Adsense publisher id to your own - does is matter what the "ad_slot" number is?
    (can one leave it as is?)

    Example:

    google_ad_client = "pub-xxx xxx xxx";
    google_ad_slot = "3448601998";
    google_ad_width = 728;
    google_ad_height = 15;

    Cheers,
    Patrik

  • The most important thing is to change the ad-clinet it. I am pretty sure that the ad slot is for channels and is useful for analytics so you can see which ad where is responsive.

  • My advice would be to change the adslot numbers.

    They are channels created by the previous owner. My practice is to ask the owner to give him a list of his channel numbers and the locations they relate to. I then create similar channels in my account and replace each of his channel numbers in the code with my equivalent.

    Just changing the publisher ID is asking for trouble in my opinion.
