Google Spring Cleaning Shuts Down AdSense for Feeds, Classic Plus Search

  • AdSense for Feeds was designed to help publishers earn revenue from their content by placing ads on their RSS feeds. Starting October 2, we’ll begin to retire this feature—and on December 3 we’ll close it. Publishers can continue to use FeedBurner URLs powered by Google, so they won’t need to redirect subscribers to different URLs. For more information visit the AdSense Help Center.
  • Classic Plus is a Google Search feature that lets people upload or select images to use as a background on Google.com. Users won’t be able to upload new pictures starting from October 16, and we'll turn the service off in November 2012. You'll continue to have access to any images you've uploaded.

  • Others include:-
    Google storage in Picasa and Drive will be consolidated over the next few months,...
    Spreadsheet Gadgets were designed to allow people to add customized features to Google Spreadsheets. But most popular gadgets have now been added directly into charts in spreadsheets. So we will slowly start turning off Gadgets in Spreadsheets next year.

    Starting on October 15, we'll stop issuing and displaying Google News Badges, as well as showing Recommended Sections.

    We've merged Insights for Search into a revamped Google Trends.

    Places Directory was an Android app that helped people find nearby places of interest. We've removed the app from Google Play and are taking down the Places Directory site because users can find everything in Google Maps for Mobile, which offers a much better user experience.

    Given that webmasters now use Social Reports in Google Analytics to get a wider view of social activity (including +1’s), we'll be discontinuing the stand-alone +1 Reports on November 14.

    This is the one with the interesting maths ..from PHDs..:)

    You can have 5 gigs of free storage..

    You can buy 100 gigs of storage..

    If you buy 100 gigs of storage...your 5 gigs will be included ( counted towards the 100 gigs )..so you'll pay for 100, but get 95 + 5 ..

    Or you can just have 5 gigs ..for free..

    "The Trading Standards Authority"" in the UK and it's equivalents elsewhere..are going to love..that deal..or maybe not ..

    "Buy 100, get 95 ( and 5 free )" ..

    Brought to you from the maths PHDs ..at the "'plex" ..;)
