Google AdSense Publishers Happy About Stronger Dollar to Euro

In January of this year, we wrote about The Impact of the Dollar Exchange Rates on Google AdSense. Then, Google AdSense publishers were upset that they were earning less due to exchange rate issues.

But now with the stronger dollar, relative to the euro, publishers are rejoicing.

A WebmasterWorld thread has many Europeans sounding happy. Here is one post:

Wow! The euro is now trading close to $1.35, which is lower than it has been for quite some time. Since many europeans have seen their adsense-bourne profits evaporate due to the strong euro vs the low dollar, this should be great news for all euro-publishers :) Just wanted to share this piece of good news.

Now, to clarify. The US Dollar is strengthening against the Euro not because of a solid US economy. It is because of a scary European economy. The powerful currency of choice, these days, would likely be the Yen. Anyway, I am not an economist - so let's keep it at that.
