Monetizing content

This is a blog about advertising.

So it may surprise you to learn that the one thing I hate seeing on blogs is advertising.

Endless columns of tacky Google text ads really lower the tone I think.

I don't mind seeing them in a Google search. In fact I've clicked on more than my fair share of the ads in the right hand column of a search.

But when it comes to blogs all I wanna see is the thoughts and opinions of the blogger.

Which is why I was surprised to see a new link had appeared in my blog dashboard.

Yes. You guessed it. I'm talking about the monetize link.

Suffice to say I won't be clicking it.
