Filter setting in new AdMob panel

The new AdMob interface was launched last week (I was invited on early May 2014). The transition was smooth however from my experience I lost all my account balance in the old interface.

One thing I do not like with the new apps is, it do not want to support PayPal payment. (Update – later I found out that the new AdMob facility provide direct wired-transfer to you favorite local banks. Just provide your account number and bank SWIFT-BIC and wait till your balance achieve the threshold value. This is normally a three day compared to two weeks PayPal transfer.You can change this in the Account > Payments > Payment SettingsI have not figured out how to channel my commission payment to my local bank account.

The thing I’d like to elaborate is the ads filtering panel. After you have logged-in to the new system (at https://apps.admob.com/), find the Account panel on the top-right of the page. Inside the Account panel, click on the Legacy AdMob data menu . Then choose the Review and Set ad filters (refer to screenshot below).

You can block competitors’ URL.

Or block ads by category. However this is not a good approach, as you block one general categories, all the sub-categories will also be blocked.

Hopefully the will have ads filtering based on keyword very soon.
