Adsense Checks to India via BlueDart for Free

Google has removed the Secure Check delivery feature from Indian Publishers account. They are no more charging for the Check Delivery. Actually, Now the Indian publishers will receive Google checks through Blue Dart, which will be free of charge. The Secured Check was charging $25 to the publishers but now it’s free.

Also the publishers can track their check thru Blue Dart’s tracking Service. Google has introduced this new rule because of the suggestions received by Indian Publishers to introduce some quick and cheap way to send the payments like some Direct Debit type facility. Or May be they will now send the check from India instead of Dublin which could be the reason of cost cutting.

 

Checks mailed by Blue Dart would arrive within 10-30 days of the check date, which is quite a long period but considerable one. In my opinion it’s better than the last one as, I think that checks from Blue Dart should arrive within 10 days rather than 10-30 days.

Also they says that “Blue Dart is not able to service all areas throughout India. If you live in a location they don’t service, your check will be sent by Registered Post and should reach you within 2-3 weeks of the mailing date.”

Thank you Adsense Team for this wonderful service.

Following are the new features adapted by Alexa recently:

  1. Keywords: One of the good feature adapted by Alexa. It now tells the Top keywords that drive most of the traffic to the websites from Search Engines
  2. ClickStream: Another new brilliant feature is the clickstream which shows the Top sources of the traffic. Here in screen shot a website is taken into consider and the report shows that Google is the Top traffic contributor for the site.
  3. Demographics: Demographics is not yet providing hardly any reports. But we can expect this feature to be in the race very soon. Although it’s not yet active, but this is the only feature which helps advertisers in selecting the most prominent  platform where they can advertise their product or services.

These are the changes which alexa has adapted recently in the traffic ranking stats. What more we can expect from Alexa?
