AdSense for Domains Available to All US Publishers = Google Is Lowering the Standards

| Comments

“Many publishers have approached us looking for a way to monetize their domains, and today, we’re excited to announce the expansion of AdSense for domains. This product allows publishers to earn revenue through ads placed on undeveloped domains.” bla, bla…

Google has been fighting for years to impose quality standards on the sites it accepts adsense. Domain parking is not a new business and many companies are making serious money just by parking your domain on a page full with ads. Google was against such policies that would show the user a page full of ads without any real content; until now… Apparently google has problems and tries to get all the money they can with moves like this that obviously lower their quality standards. Previously google offered such a service for big sites/providers, but now they want all your domains, big, small, anything that can bring in a dime…

What can we expect next from google’s effort to make more money? Maybe a text-link-ads clone soon to sell text links, or why not just sell directly pagerank for the sites that want to pay for that… ;–) .
