However, when configuring AdSense page element, after signing in and linked Blogger to user’s Google AdSense account, only AdSense publisher ID (e.g ca-pub-7042087181757148) is captured and placed into the ad code in blog’s template. Other settings that can be configured are ad unit format and colors, with no options to set the custom AdSense reporting channel for the ad unit. Custom channel is a feature in AdSense which is used to keep track of ad performance by allowing users to view detailed reporting on performance and revenue statistics of specific pages and/or ad units. Armed with this data, bloggers can then optimize the ad units individually to improve the AdSense performance.
