According to Google, Engaging and flexible ad units will give advertisers a new way to communicate with users online. What a load of crap. This is just Google’s attempt to take over all advertising media, or pretty much strong arm other companies into giving up their technology because Google sucks.
Apparently this “new technology” will allow advertisers to incorporate interactive Flash movies, real-time data feeds, streaming video and maybe even a few fart buttons! Google…such pioneers in the field of “new media” advertising. Go Go Google Gadget Ads!
From a publisher’s standpoint I’m not sure how these new ads will affect my web site revenue from Google Adsense. I’m sure Google will come up with some new silly explanation as to why my Adsense pay outs will decrease because of low-quality interactive ad traffic…who knows.
Anyways, I’ve worked with quite a few online companies who have been providing these super new “interactive” (sounds so 90’s) for years. Many of those companies are small, but provide incredible service. There is no doubt that Google will provide incredible service for its new Gadget Ad format, but at the same time I can’t help thinking they they will put smaller interactive ad providers out of business. Just like what Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowes have done for smaller mom and pop shops.
Google Gadget Ads, one more monopoly, one more step toward joining the Axis of Evil of Technology Providers. Yes open source weenies, I’m talking about Microsoft. Don’t even think that Google and their side-arm buddy Firefox are the good guys anymore.
Click Bank was the first affiliate marketing resource I’ve ever used. Good ole Michael Rassmussen introduced me to the incredible revenue building power of affiliate marketing and Click Bank about 6 years ago. While hanging out in San Francisco at the Flash Forward Conference, Mike showed me how to buy keywords using Overture (Before Yahoo took it over and destroyed it) and have them point to my Click Bank affiliate links.
I made many thousands of dollars with very little investment. However things have changed, SPAM laws, Overture not being Overture, Google being weird about what they consider landing pages, and many other things.
Well, again Michael has shown me the way and pointed me to a new product offering from Andrew Fox called the CB Affiliate Formula which uses the newest techniques to make cash with Click Bank affiliate marketing. Andrew is tops with techniques.
He even provides a few road maps that you can follow to a tee to make money online with Click Bank.
I suggest checking out Andrew Fox’s CB Affiliate Formula immediately before you waste thousands of dollars on pay per click keyword mismanagement.
Or Britney Spears, however you want to spell it. Michael over at wolf-howl.com has recently demonstrated two crucial search engine marketing concepts, buzz targeting and link baiting. With all the hoopla of Britney Spears’ horrible attempt at a comeback, Michael decided to be creative and post a simple, yet effective link bait entry. Take a peek for yourself.
Thanks for bringing back some exciting photos of Britney. Michael, you rock, sometimes.
Yes, it is true, I have finally figured it all out. I’ve de-constructed the inner-workings of Google’s search engine ranking. I can’t tell you now, but I will be posting algorithms, flow charts and generalizations of how the whole thing works in my next post. Stay tuned!
