Google Adsense and RSS Team Up

Another beta for Google: Google (GOOG) announced the formal launch Wednesday of AdSense for Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds. “The idea is simple: advertisers have their ads placed in the most appropriate feed articles; publishers are paid for their original content; readers see relevant advertising,” said Shuman Ghosemajumder, product manager. Google has also suggested some best practices for RSS publishers: syndicate the item’s full text and insert only one ad per article. To participate in the program, which is in a testing mode, RSS publishers must be current Adsense subscribers and have at least 100 subscribers to their content feeds.

    Getting up to 100 feed subscribers is marginally more difficult than reaching the $100 mark for your first Google cheque /check. Are they specializing in army-type obstacle courses over at the Big G now? If they want to monetize the long tail maybe they need to rethink their priorities. It surely doesn’t cost them anything for someone to cut and paste a bit of code into their template. And it does make a lot of people feel a little more Googley.
