I, personally, don’t have enough feed subscribers to make this a money-making piece of news to me. However, I just found out that Text Link Ads have just launched a new advertising format called Feedvertising. (Found via problogger.)
In his post, Darren writes:
There are two main ways you can use Feedvertising in your Feeds:
1. To promote your own products, services, affiliate products, key pages on your blog etc (placing â€˜personalâ€™ ads as Iâ€™m doing now)
2. Letting TLA sell ads for you in their marketplace
You can of course do a combination of both. You have 6 ad slots available to fill which are rotated as you write more posts.
From the Feedvertising page:
Bloggers can use our FREE Feedvertising technology to run text link ads in your RSS feed. Whether the ads come from us, your own in-house efforts, or your affiliate links… the choice is totally up to you! Currently for WordPress 2.0+ users with more blogging platforms coming very shortly.
Cool. I’m putting this on my “to use” list.
