RSS Ads – Monetise your RSS feed

Posted By Darren Rowse 14th of October 2004 RSS 0 Comments

RSS Ads is a system to add ads to your RSS feeds. They are currently signing up publishers for a release of the program shortly.

They write – ‘Monetize your RSS feed. Maintain total control over the ads placed in your feed. Expose all of your content via premium RSS feeds.’ It will be interesting to watch how this system and others like it work out for bloggers.

If any of you are using such a system drop me a line and let me know how you’re finding it and we’ll put it up as a case study.

  1. There’s something about ads in an RSS feed that feels like spam to me. I don’t have a problem with ads on a web-page/blog (do it myself), but I’m unable to justify it in a feed.

    I am starting to see ad links show up in feeds from syndication services. (To the credit side, they are clearly marked as ad links.) I have decided that I will not click an ad link from my feed reader. And, were advertising in a feed to become pervasive, I would likely unsubscribe from that feed.

    To my way of thinking, my syndication feed is the hook that brings readers to my blog for more information. Hopefully they will then be induced to click an ad on my site. This then reflects back to a quality-of-post issue. If the post title is well thought out and the post is well written and the readers will come.

  2. I couldn’t agree more, I have dropped feeds the moment I saw ads in them – as I normally subscribe to the feeds in order to get *away* from the barrage of uninteresting ads most sites have on their pages. Everyone praises googles adsense but I’ve really begun to despise both those textads and the sites that carry them.
