no official word yet, but some are talking about it

I've seen a couple blogs mention a third blog that is running Adsense in their RSS feed.

I don't remember it being mentioned in the recent Adsense changes, so maybe it's a feature only for super publishers?

Anyone else hear anything?

It seems to be a beta test. It works similar to how AdSense in email newsletters work - using a straight HTML code rather than a javascript.

I am pretty excited about it, and it looks pretty good in the various feed readers. It will be nice to have this ability to add AdSense into an RSS feed, and a good way for bloggers to monetize their RSS feeds.

I'd love to have this - I'm currently running Overture ads on my RSS through FeedBurner, but I would really like to have AdSense instead.

thanks jenstar. i'd drop the amazon in my feeds for this.

i still wonder, though, if they will allow everyone to use it or not...

What happens bloggers who's blogging services that doesn't allow modification to be made in their RSS feeds? Wouldn't that be a disadvantage?

Seige: most likely, but they still have the option of getting their own server, etc.

This week, Google spawned a version of AdSense that allows publishers to send a text or banner advertisement alongside syndicated content using Really Simple Syndication (RSS) or Atom, Google's adopted format.

If people are including AdSense in an RSS feed that displays on a page with 3 AdSense blocks already on the page (or if it displays on sites with disallowed content) isn't that a violation of the TOS?

I don't think I'd want my AdSense information showing up anywhere and everywhere, too risky.

Google Puts RSS Advertising to the Test

[eweek.com...]

A day after diving into impression-based advertising, Google is expanding its online ad network again by placing contextual ads in XML-based syndication feeds.
Google Inc. confirmed Tuesday that it has begun testing the use of its ads in RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds, a move that signals the growing interest in earning revenue from news feeds.

Google ads began appearing late Monday within about 60 RSS feeds published by the LonghornBlogs.com Weblog, publisher Robert McLaws said. Those feeds appear to be the first implementation of a bigger pilot test that Google plans to conduct with select AdSense publisher partners.

This is also published on the GMail forum where it first appeared April 15.

In a contextual sea change, Google has announced a beta program that allows publishers to embed AdSense contextual ads in RSS and Atom syndication feeds.

Newsletters is one thing, but what immediately springs to mind for me is the potential of putting AdSense in software.....

AdSense in software

Doesn't Opera already do this...?

Do they? I would think they have a specific licence from Google to do so.

I'm thinking more generically. If any AdSense publisher can put Ads in an RSS feed, then any developer could custom write an application that contains a feedreader (as we did for a particular application).

It will be interesting to see how Google word the TOS.

I have some experience with this, and G didn't seem too fond. Technically, the ads WERE hosted on a web page, but I was happy enough to say thanks for the warning and make the necessary changes...

As a publisher I'm not sure how happy I would be with ads on my site that couldn’t bring in any money for me. I think I might remove any RSS feeds with AdSense or some others ads in them.

Yes, Opera has a license with Google to put adsense ads (adwords) in the banner window.

What I'm thinking about here is essentially a branded feed-reader, or, an application with a built-in (fully functional, but who's feed do you think it will bias) feed-reader.

Did any of you find some instructions or release out of the beta program yet?
