From Ask Metafilter:
I run a blog-style website focused solely on a class of popular shiny plastic gadgets and I’m thinking about adding some sort of text ad to my RSS and Atom feeds. I use Google Adsense on the site itself, but AFAIK they don’t allow Adsense in newsfeeds. Blogads and Pheedo seem to offer just this sort of service. Anyone have experience with either of these? Or newsfeed ads in general?
I think the sites that do a weekly Here’s our sponsors are doing the best job of integrating ads into RSS. I think ads can sour feeds very quickly and degrades/distracts from content. Is what you’re saying really that exclusive that users turned off by ads aren’t going to be able to get the same content elsewhere ad-free? I just think they’re tacky, ungainly and ugly. Do we have to be whoring products and services every minute of the day?
