Anyone else anxious to be able to advertise in our rss feeds? I feel like Im providing the service of my site without the chance for me to earn anything. My rss feed has become popular very quick, and I can't wait til theres a chance for me to make a little more income from it..

Hello igneous, and welcome to WebmasterWorld!

I might be daft, but I have really never fully understood the concept of RSS feeds. At least not if you put the whole content of a page into the feed.

I want the visitors to come to my site, much more than I feel the need to share my content. And that's the reason I have been putting off RSS feeds for all my sites.

But, to answer your question, if AdSense came up with a way to fully implement I would definitely reconsider my descition about RSS feeds. Can't see how that could be done though, with all the various ways there are to read and use feeds...

You could try the model that Wired uses. They provide the first few sentences and no ads in the rss, thereby bringing the users to the site and their ads.

Full content rss is nice and I like reading everything in the rss reader, but if I was running a for profit page I would provide just enough content in the rss feed to bring them to my site. I wouldn't consider the rss ad model, because CTR is much lower (or so I've heard).

I was hesitant to implement an rss feed, as I thought it would take away visitors, in fact I have been receiving more visitors, which is probably just due to word of mouth. My site basically posts a daily update of links, so its easy and helpful to my visitors to have a feed. I have about 1500 people a day visit my site, and my rss feed is accessed about 200 times a day, so you can imagine how much I would like to show those 200/day ads.

Does anyone know when adsense for rss will come out of beta? Are there any other advertisers that have ads you can put in your rss feed?

You can apply for AdSense RSS even though it is in beta. Many publishers have been approved for it.

I have implemented RSS feeds in summer, so people can inform about new pages.

But I do not understand where the ads are in in the RSS

I have a blog and a main site. The blog has the up to date news stories and new research into my topic. I use the RSS feed from my own blog on the front page of my main site, and both benefit!

I don't make a lot out of the blog itself, but it's certainly a valuable content asset to the main site where I *do* earn good money!

There are still so much things what I do not understand.

For example Google wants the number of unique subscribers.

How can I find this out?

I have on each of my subdomains a news page with links to news.rdf containing the rss.

Where are the ads inserted?

Is there an example?
