Two new Island blogs, one from Cynthia Dunsford and the other from Rob MacDonald use the Blog*Spot system. These blogs are “paid for” with automatic Google text ads running in a banner across the top.
I was interested to note, this evening, the targetting of the ads to each blogs’ content.
Cynthia’s ads: “Fuss — High Heels Shop exkl. italienische High Heels Pumps Schuhe u. Stiefel — Größe 34 bis 46” and “Feet Love Gurkees Sandals
Rope, washable, floatable, 8 colors $19.95 Safe Quick orders since 1997.”
Rob’s ads: “Beer Can World
Make some money! I always pay top dollar for old beer cans. Toll Free.” and “Liburdi Dimetrics — Orbital / Tube / Pipe Welding Lathes, Seamers & Positioners.”
Surely this is the shape of advertising things to come?
I swear to all gods that I’ll be ridding it of advertisements as soon as their upgrade site becomes active again.
Rob, I’ve been exchanging email with the Blogger people about the problem both you and Cynthia are having. It seems more of a “bug” than a “upgrade.” I’ll keep at it.
