Google Rolls Out Adsense for Feeds

SMS Text

Some blog sites are reporting that Google has added the Adsense for feeds option in their Adsense accounts’ Setup menu. Checking out my Adsense account validated these reports. Right after the Adsense for Content and Adsense for Search options in the Adsense Setup menu is a new option labeled “Adsense for Feeds”. Google says it allows users to place relevant ads in feeds Google manages for them.

With the lack of official announcement yet from the Inside Adsense blog, I log-in to my Adsense account and saw the new option to create Adsense for blog feeds. Why you choose this option the Adsense account manager brings you to Adsense for feeds set-up screen. (Note: You are allowed only to set up one Adsense for Feeds ad unit) Once you’ve used up your single option, clicking on the link to Adsense for Feeds will just bring you to a blank page.

After this, you’ll be prompted to specify your blog’s url or feed url. Once you’ve done this you can start customizing your Adsense for Feed unit. However, if Google could not find a valid feed in you site, it will ask you to verify your Adsense for Feeds ad units and what its verified you can start serving your Adsense units to your blog/site’s RSS feeds.


If the system could not find a valid RSS feeds on your site, you will be asked to generate one right  within your site to enable you to serve Google adsense units .

This is a welcome development for those Adsense publishers who are still earning a lot of money from their blog/sites Adsense units. While those who don’t want to go throuh the process of verifying their blog/sites will be asked to create their blog/sites’ Adsense units for Feed.

As for me, I might give this new Adsense feature a try.

    Oh no … I had learned to ignore AdSense ads now I’m going to start seeing them in my feed subscriptions!

    I am not sure this will be a wise move for my blogs.

    Thank you for the heads up.

    It’s also in the (Google owned) Feedburner monitise options.

    Really funny what Charles says, well actually most of internet users learned to ignore ads.

    But I think it’s a good move because I want to make money and don’t mind others make money too.

    This is great and about time! I think Yahoo! Publisher has had this feature for a while now…

    Thanks a lot for information. It will be good for blogger to earn more money but be a problem for subscriptors experience.
