RSS Ads - Asking For Your Feedback

May 25, 2005 • 9:10 am | comments (8) by | Filed Under Blog Administration

The AdSense RSS Ads I have been beta testing for Google have been live for less then two days now. It seems to be really annoying some of the readers here - as Cre8asite Forums points out. Trust me, it is not permanent. My first priority is to bring you the latest from inside of the SEO world, and if I can make some money on the side that is great, if not, then I wont put the ads up.

So let me ask you what you want to see or not see. Here are the options and please, please comment or email me at barry AT with your feedback.

(1) Convert the abridged versions of the RSS feeds to full entry feeds and keep Google Ads in them. (2) Remove ads from abridged versions of the RSS feeds and just put them in a full entry feed, for those who want it.

I think those are the two options that seem fair. But you're the reader, so you tell me.

Do you want the full entries in the feed and if so, would you mind if there is an ad at the bottom of each of those entries? Hopefully, they will be targeted and hopefully I will be able to change the colors to make them less distracting. Or do you prefer the clean abridged versions of the RSS feeds? Or something else?
