Google plays April Fool with its Adsense publishers, Planets and Moons and Guacamole

Google Adsense publishers including myself got a nice bit of surprise on opening the dashboard today.  The countries listed in the Adsense dashboard were changed into Planets and Moons. This is the list from where the publisher knows readers in which countries click the ads and helps them to make reader friendly posts.

However on clicking the View planets hyperlink, the publishers were brought back on to Earth and showed the real countries.  This is not the only prank pulled up by Google.  On clicking the help section of the dashboard, Google was giving a recipe of 'How to make AWESOME guacamole!'

For the uninitiated, Guacamole is an avocado-based dip that originated with the Aztecs in Mexico. In addition to its use in modern Mexican cuisine it has also become part of American cuisine as a dip, condiment and salad ingredient.

Non Adsense users can see the recipe here
