Woo Hoo! Riches just around the corner

Google is going to pay people to blog.

Looking to lure new users to its Blogger publishing platform, Google plans to give up a slice of its own advertising pie. The search technology darling announced plans to share the profits from its AdSense self-service program that helps publishers serve up contextual advertising. The move is a significant departure from Google's previous policy of keeping all its revenues earned from AdSense.
I doubt I'll ever see any signifigant revenue from blogging, but it is nice of Google to share.

i said this else where, i don't know if anyone has put together the dots.

"I blog on blog spot, i would just like to point out a few changes that they have made.

They put a nav bar in place of the ads that were once there. These nav bars at the top of the page have a "next blog" button in the top right that allow you to randomly go through blogs (that alone increased tracific at my site).

Then blogger released the adsense thing.

What they did was create a self contained community, then created an ad base around that self contained community.

I was stunned by the beauty of that...then the next question that i asked...was this leagal."

Yes, I do believe it is legal. The Blogger community on blogspot desperately needed to be interconnected to make it work, not only for bloggers and readers, but also for google.

Besides, I wouldn't mind getting a piece of the pie myself.
