Google Adsense for Feeds

Looks like Google is now supporting Adsense ads for RSS feeds.

I remember the good ol’ days of Adsense. Now it’s about as ubiquitous as hit counters were in the 90’s. Still, I sure don’t mind seeing those Google checks in the mail, although they are fewer and further between these days.

The lack of Adsense support for feeds has been a pain point for bloggers and sploggers alike. Several startups exist solely to plug that hole. I guess we should get ready to start seeing ads in our feeds as often they appear on sites.

One more reason to love the keyboard shortcuts in Google Reader.

The announcement (if you must):

Inside AdSense: I feel the need… the need for feeds
