In yet another move to ramp up their revenue in a sagging economy (see iPhone Ads, Google Liquor Ads, YouTube PPC, YouTube Sells Out), Google has announced that they will now offer Adsense for Domains.
With AdSense for domains, users can find relevant information rather than see empty pages or “page not found” errors. Today we present ads, links, and search results on the pages, and may add other useful information in the future. To ensure positive user experience and the quality of our network, these sites are monitored for policy compliance and prohibited from using text and images designed to confuse users.
Advertisers also have additional opportunities to find their customers, and ads on these pages convert well. In addition, we regularly receive requests from advertisers who have found domains to be an effective way to reach their users.
The product will be initially rolled out in phases to English-language AdSense publishers located in North America, and we’ll expand to additional regions and languages in the future. To check whether AdSense for domains has been enabled for your account, log in and visit your AdSense Setup tab. For more information, please visit our Help Center.
AdSense for Domains, which used to be called “Domain Park”, is something that has historically been extremely controversial. Since 2005, there have been claims that the product delivered traffic with poor quality. Additionally, there have been several reported lawsuits surrounding this product.
Why, then, is Google promising to make it available to ALL of its publishers? The economy sucks. They want to earn a few bucks wherever they can, as do we all.
If you haven’t done so already, I highly recommend that you check out “Secrets of Adsense 2009″. This e-book only costs $9…we’re talking about NINE dollars here. It contains some of the hottest Adsense tips I have seen in a long time, including a lovely little gem called the “Exit Page” technique.
Not only is it an awesome e-book, but it also features 100% commissions…meaning if YOU sell the e-book to YOUR clients, you make $9 on each copy sold, paid directly through PayPal. Check out Secrets of Adsense 2009 today.
