Google AdSense for FeedBurner Feeds is Here
Update: I’ve added a video on the topic of RSS monetization and the news below.
A month ago today we wrote that Google AdSense for FeedBurner RSS feeds was coming and today we have learned more details via a blog post on the FeedBurner site. Starting next week, a select group of publishers who are part of the FeedBurner Ad Network (we are part but apparently not in the test group) will begin to push Google AdSense ads out to their feeds.
Eventually the program will open to anyone using Google AdSense and seems to be driven through the AdSense program rather than the FeedBurner program.
FeedBurner suggests that those of us in the Ad Network will continue to run "premium CPM ads directly sold onto their content" — I have watched the number of these premium ads drop like a rock since FeedBurner sold to Google and it was a fear of mine which sadly has been realized.
Maybe after Google AdSense pushes out to the mass, my "buck a feed" concept might actually start to move forward.
