    Since early January, AdSense publishers have been complaining that they have not received payment in multiple months. In fact, Google confirmed the issue and said they are "taking this issue seriously."

  • European Google AdSense Publishers Not Happy About Exchange Rate
    The exchange rate and how it plays in the Google AdSense space for non-USA based publishers is a big deal, especially these days.

  • Ask.com Crosses The Line: Frames Search Results
    Ask.com has gone too far. I have given them a lot of negative attention recently but they deserve it all. They are now framing the landing page of the search results. Let me rephrase that...
