Just saw an ad for the Google content network, which of course includes independent AdSense publishers. the landing page of the ad is:

[youtube.com...]

they have created a bunch of videos introducing the content network to prospective advertisers.

nice to see them actively promoting us.

My web site is actievely promoting a political change in the tax system.

My video for this has now about 14,000 views and about 2700 new views per month.

When I look at the views of the Content Network channel,
You can not call something a Google promotion, when the
effects are smaller than what my small web site can accomplish.

hopefully they are just in the testing phase of their adwords campaign and will turn on the spigot after they have the landing page tweaked and all the videos that they want to make.

i just like to see that they are spending some resources (not much in in promoting the page yet) on the content network.

one of the best ways for the content network to grow is for new advertisers to start using adwords - so its nice to see Google doing something in this direction.

There are a lot of ways we're promoting the Content Network to advertisers. The ads and videos you're seeing are reaching a broad spectrum of advertisers as well as driving awareness of the opportunities to advertise on sites like yours through Google.

In addition to these efforts, we have a lot of folks talking directly to larger advertisers about the value of Google's Content Network, the whitepaper Google released about the ROI of the Content Network, and opportunities in display advertising.

I actually spent most of this year working with advertisers and talking to them about the Content Network and advertising on AdSense publisher sites. There's a lot of excitement right now in the advertising industry about content and display, and a lot of demand for high-value sites that convert well for advertisers.

Now is a pretty awesome time to be involved with AdSense and the Google Content Network. :)
