So for some reason that I can no longer remember, I had to log into FeedBurner to do something. I was greeted with an odd message that appeared to say that FeedBurner would cease to exist and I would have to migrate my account to Google. I have become wary of attaching my Google account to my other important services after their recent gaffe and was about to click “No Thanks” when I realized that the page was telling me that if I did not do it manually, they would be moved for me anyways. Since I had no choice, I went through the paces to move my FeedBurner services to Google. The move was mostly uneventful and I was told that while my feeds were being transferred, I could close the browser window and know that they would be safely transferred. There are some reported incidents of missing feeds […]

Since there are a couple of interesting news items, I have consolidated them into one post. The Blogging World is agog over the (confirmed) news that Feedburner is being bought out by Google for 100 million. My congratulations to the Feedburner team and the VCs who thought this was a good investment. However, I have also been reading some disturbing rumors/thoughts that Feedburner might inject Google Ads into feeds. I cannot see Google imposing this on Feedburner users but if they do, they will lose me as a user. I choose to keep my feeds ad free and I will look elsewhere. Google is reported to be cracking down on websites and blogs that have little content and lots of ads (or made for adsense type websites, a form of arbitrage). The NY Post reports that a number of users have been notified of being dropped from the AdSense program. […]

AdSense and image placement We ask that publishers not line up images and ads in a way that suggests a relationship between the images and the ads. If your visitors believe that the images and the ads are directly associated, or that the advertiser is offering the exact item found in the neighboring image, they may click the ad expecting to find something that isn’t actually being offered. That’s not a good experience for users or advertisers. This is important for many AdSense publishers. From the examples that have been provided, if you are using a plugin like AdSense Beautifier, you might be violating Google’s AdSense policies and might want to look into removing the plugin.

WP Plugin: Target Adsense Target AdSense is a plugin for WordPress that helps you employ Google ad section targeting. Section targeting allows you to suggest sections of your text and content that you’d like to emphasize or downplay to Google Adsense. When used correctly, ad section targeting can give you more control in matching the best ads to your site’s content. Installation is relatively simple and the configuration of the plugin allows you to choose specific portions of your post to target ads to.

I (somewhat shamefully) agree that I am not an ad clicker. On the average, I will click on somewhere between 0 to 1 ad a day, tops. I also do not fall too often for clever advertising on blogs and websites. I have learned to navigate around them. Some would say I have developed ad blindness. More often than not, I tend to look for clever placement methods, interesting ad services and such without actually clicking on anything or navigating away from the original page. If something interests me tremendously, I might distract myself for a few minutes but rarely have I actually purchased or signed on to a product or service that I was referred to by an ad. However, this evening, I came upon such a clever ad placement that I had to think about it for a few minutes before the bulb in my head flickered and […]
