Google recently announced a brand new option for people who wish to sell advertising on their websites and blogs. If you have a website and/or blog that is experiencing tons of traffic and attention daily, you might have a good bargaining chip that you can use to command high rates for the virtual real estate that is represented by your site and blog sidebars. With really engaging sites, advertisers might even come to you for the purposes of advertising. If you were to sell this advertising space on your own, you would have to deal with contracts, payment terms and you would have to ensure that you were getting paid regularly. Now, Google is offering website and blog owners the chance to sell valuable virtual real estate on their digital creations using the Adsense platform. Enter Adsense Direct. If you haven’t heard about Adsense Direct, prepare to get really excited; especially if you have a popular site or blog and you really, really like money.
It is no secret that Facebook and Google don’t quite get along. On paper, it seems like a marriage made in heaven: the world’s largest social network and the world’s largest search engine. If the two of them teamed up, they could quite literally take over the Internet. Since Google wants to take over the Internet all on its own, it is not interested in teaming up with Facebook. This is why the search giant developed Google+, which it hoped would grow larger than Facebook and overtake the social giant’s reign at the top of the social network hierarchy. Unfortunately, that coup never occurred and both platforms have been locked in a battle ever since; and so far the quarrel shows no signs of abatement. The only question that remains is, how will Google handle Facebook’s new updates? The rumor is, Facebook has plenty up its sleeve.
