New AdSense demos added to the support site, among other things

While grabbing some information from the support site, I noticed that some new items have been added to help newer publishers start their journey with Google AdSense.

The first demo is Getting Started With AdSense Demo and covers the basic basics, such as agreeing to the terms, how to use the AdSense control panel, how to use different ad styles and more. While older publishers likely will not find anything of interest, it is a pretty fancy multimedia demo for those who have just signed up for AdSense.

The second is the Payment Demo, which covers the basics of getting paid. It is also in the same multimedia style as the Getting Started demo.

Something new has been added to the left navigation bar as well. Report a Policy Violation has been added, although it gives an alternative way to report from the one Matt Cutts announced at the WebmasterWorld conference.

To bring a site to our attention, follow these steps:

Draft a new email. If possible, please use the email address currently associated with your AdSense account
Write 'AdSense Policy Violation' as the subject of your message
Please include all of the following in the body of your message:

The URL of the violating website
A description of the violation
The specific location of the violation, if applicable

Send this email to adsense-support@google.com

There are still no updated case studies, and the news stories are still lost back in March 2005. It would be good for publishers to have some new case study examples to examine and start testing the ideas from. As an example, the blended ad technique wasn't widely used by many until the PetPlace.com case study was released.

It is nice to see the support cater to the new publishers, and I am sure it probably saves them a lot of support time from people asking "When do I get my check?"

Looks like Google did the Payment demo in lot of hurry.

The site has no title and the presentation has no slide notes.
