Now with the host of features added to the adsense program, how many of you will think about trying or shifting to the possible yahoo or msn adsense alternatives?
I think I would definitely stick with Google but may try Yahoo's program for 15 days to compare the earnings. But surely I would be sticking to Google for years to come. Unless they boot me out :-D [hope that never happens.. I keep pestering them to review my websites for complaince.. sorry for all the trouble googleguys]
I just like the idea of different options. The new Yahoo Ads will stand out more on my website, until visitors soon get used to them. Then I'll go back to Google etc.
like some ad networks do (burst high rate contract for example)
then we won't be able to "experiment". I'm not talking about on a page by page basis, which already exists, but on a site-wide basis.
Competition will be good for all the PPC enterprises. I don't subscribe to the doom and gloom view that the first reaction will be an overall lowering of publisher payouts -- the fact that new "long tail" PPC vendors are arriving on the scene is a testament to the fact that they've recognized the value of the publishers to the ad revenue model. If anything, I expect a short term bump in revenue once the competition starts in earnest.
I run a very modest website, and don't have very many pages that perform very highly, so I have some tough decisions ahead in terms of which performers to potentially &^**#-up with experimentation. But I know that on the long term I'm going to have options if I start to find one PPC vendor objectionable (or they start to find me so).
It's all good.
Will you be shifting?
It's a bit early for people to speculate on that, isn't it?
Who knows what the other programs will offer, or what kinds of sites they're willing to accept?
