But I'm not hearing that anywhere. Makes me think that there ain't exactly a stampede of AdWords advertisers to print.
What say thee, my WebmasterWorld brethren?
It's a bit like their audio ads thing. And $500 of free credit just for putting up an ad doesn't sound bad. I'm considering trying it out. Has anyone else received this sort of message? Has anyone acted on it?

A surprising number of newspapers depended on classifieds as well as normal ads.
having had my hands in the print business, I would tell you that some big newspapers are driven in large part by they classifieds. Open you local daily and do a simple calculation: count the number of classifieds per page * the price per classified. You will see that they make more money with the classifieds from small people than a full page ad from a big advertiser. Classifieds are a mine of gold, and Greg's list is, well, to put it nicely, the biggest thorn in the print industry's side.
