Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Apparently from Nov 1.
Do we Adsense publishers see AOL as big competition? Will a lot of the lucrative ads go to AOL? Will there be a sudden drop in earnings on Nov 1st?
Or is this topic not worth this thread? :)
The total supply of cpc text ad space is remaining constant. However, since there is some rigidness to the system (i.e. time is needed for ad buyers to switch over and prices to adjust). There should be an initial plummet followed by an upward adjustment to nearly the same level that it was at.
Do I believe this? Partially yes. Because when I bid on terms, I can never get enough traffic from either adwords or overture.
That's a good point. But AOL is big enough for Google to split the contextual network into "general" (you and I) and contextual network AOL.
>> multiple ad units - combined with allowing bloggers to show adsense - had probably more of an impact than AOL search ever will.
I hope you are right, and you quite probably are.

Hey, it's a perfect world here. Google's just approved another big cheque :)
