Content orientated websites will get revenue from non intrusive ads. Business websites will get advertising on relevant sites through targeted ads, advertising on the SERPs and advertising on Froogle.
I am not sure I agree with that 'non intrusive' definition... By the way, heavily content oriented websites get their revenues from selling content, more than ads, or at least this seems to be the going trend (should we have Adwords on this forum? Isn't this a VERY content oriented site?)
I agree with GoogleGuy about the good match for lots of sites: I just said I am probably, very probably, not going to show my competitors ads on my site. So I wonder, where those ads are going to be (quite poor sites? Is there a PR minimum to be accepted for showing adwords?) and how will I be able to control, if I'll ever be, where my ads will show up?
All Google are doing is protecting their original business aim to offer quality search results.
Actually this is offering quality *paid* results, which is somehow different from the original Google business model and quite closer to Overture and MS (in their Smart Tags plans). I do feel that Google will do much better than Overture even in this field, by the way, and I'll surely use the new system, provided there will be competitors willing to accept my ads! (just not even thinking about showing theirs, but still open to a complete change of mind given a very good reason...)
