Did You Hear The Google AdSense Radio Commercials?

The other day, I reported at Search Engine Land that Google was marketing the AdSense product over the radio, in specific markets.

These AdSense radio ads are targeting publishers or bloggers in the realm of finance site owners, health site owners and even "mommy bloggers."

A DigitalPoint Forums thread has one person who said they heard it and called it a "cheap [sounding] commercial" where "the girl was reading off cards."

I wish I could get an audio copy of the commercials to hear myself, but I guess that might be hard to find. If you do have one, please send it my way.

It is surprising to many to see Google using traditional means of advertising. Google is known not to use radio, TV or print ads to market their products. However, recently, Google has been using these forms of media to promote some products.

The commercial I heard was talking about sites for loans and sites for insurance, which are highly competitive categories.

In the ad I heard, Adsense was looking for loan sites and insurance sites, which are highly competitive categories.
