CSV AdStats Supercharges Stats for Google Adsense

Do you spend a lot of time looking at your Google Adsense reports? Are you querying your different stats in Adstats to get an idea of what works and what doesn’t several times a day?

With Google Analytics being so feature rich and has pretty graphs to give you visual feel for all the numbers, it’s a little surprising that Google doesn’t offer such performance tracking tools to its flagship brand, Adsense.

CSV AdStats is a free application that can analyze your Google Adsense data that you can download in CSV format. AdStats then calculates detailed statistical information like CPM, number of clicks, moving averages, etc.
