Chrome OS security will make Google's ads inescapable

We've all gotten a good look at the very, very early stages of Chrome OS. While there's been plenty of "meh" going around, truth is that it's really much, much too early to pass judgement. It's going to be about a year until we see something finished, after all, and Google has already said things will change quite a bit by that time. One feature of Chrome OS that has been praised is its...

AdSense on your desktop: Google starts embedding ads in Google Earth

Everyone cringed when Microsoft announced that Office 2010 Starter would be partially ad-supported, and it looks as though advertising in desktop apps may be something we'll just have to get used to. As Amit Agarwal at Digital Inspiration found out, Google Earth is now showcasing sponsored links as you search for destinations. While the ads aren't all that intrusive, they're still there....

With AdMob purchase, there's really no escaping Google advertising now

Anyone who owns an iPhone or iPod touch is all too familiar with AdMob. Their tiny "don't mind me, I'm not really all that intrusive" ads power truckloads of freebies in the App Store. While you might not love AdMob, someone does. That someone is Google. Drawn together like half-cut, lonely singles in a dimly-lit bar at happy hour, the two are about to enter a long-term relationship. As in...

Google isn't buying Twitter, but I wish they would

Ok, maybe TechCrunch blew it again (they certainly have enough other sites talking this morning). Maybe Google isn't in "late stage talks" with Twitter regarding a purchase, but I sure wish they were. Oh well, that's what happens when you cite "unnamed sources." Reality aside, the move could make sense for Google, who already command more than 60% of the search market. Twitter's rapid rise in...

Hosting companies to offer Google AdSense, site search services

Google has announced that it will work with hosting companies to offer AdSense, site search, AdWords for search and webmaster tools for your hosted websites. This is great news if you love your web host, but you want to simplify the process of monetizing your site and offering search to your users. Hosts can now integrate Google Services for Websites into their own control panels, so you should...

Google goes ad-crazy with video game ads, YouTube purchase links

There's a saying that "advertising abhors a vacuum." In other words, if there's a blank space on a wall, telephone poll, or the back of your eyelids, eventually someone will figure out how to put an advertisement there. With that in mind, Google has rolled out two new features this week intended to help fill the vacuum. First up, the company continues to try to justify its massive investment in...

Now that Microsoft's out of picture, Yahoo! rebounds with Google

Now that Yahoo! has finally decided things are really over with Microsoft, the company has found room in its heart for a new love: Google. The two companies today announced an advertising partnership that will basically place Google AdSense advertisements alongside Yahoo! search results. The deal isn't exactly comprehensive. It covers "some of" Yahoo!'s web properties, and the ads will only be...

Web page maker Weebly adds Google AdSense

Want to create a web page but don't know the first thing about HTML or domain registration and hosting? There are plenty of free web services including Google Page Creator, Lycos Webon, and SynthaSite. But Weebly, which we first looked at a few years ago is one of the easiest to use. Weebly also recently rolled out tools for adding Google AdSense advertisements to a site. While you could always...

Advertising abhors a vacuum: AdSense headed for Feedburner feeds

It's been almost a year since Google acquired RSS service Feedburner or $100 million. But in that year, we've seen very little integration of Google services into Feedburner, or vice versa. Sure, it's now easier to redirect your Blogspot feed to Feedburner, but that's about it. Now, according to the official Feedburner blog, the company is getting ready to roll out the thing we'd all kind of been...

Yahoo and Google go on a date: we'll see where it goes from there

It seems Yahoo! recently lost faith in its ability to advertise, and it almost seems desperate to try something very different. In fact, the company seems so desperate in a Web-world increasingly dominated by Google, that it's going to give AdSense a shot. Yes, Yahoo! will host Google ads on its own site. Though the mini-partnership is cute and we're sure they'd make a fun but powerful couple,...

EU approves Google, DoubleClick deal

European regulators have approved Google's plan to buy online advertising giant DoubleClick. The acquisition, which has been in the works for the better part of a year will solidify Google's dominance in the advertising field. Right now Google makes most of its money through its lucrative contextual advertising system. The DoubleClick acquisition will help Google move into display ads, an area...
