Tunnel Vision
Too cynical by half

Blogs by humans, ads by robots

I love these ads that some people have on their blog. Giles at Sweet Chariots has "Exclusive Insider Intelligence Analysis by Israeli Experts" and "Latest Israeli and Jewish News Worldwide", plus searches for "hamas" and "hong kong radio". I assume this "ad by Google" was prompted by his article about the new leader of Hamas.  Targeted advertising - never fails. 

Business Week, meanwhile has a piece about the EU battle with Microsoft, accompanied by an ad for, yes, Microsoft

Hi Giles, it's the blogspot banner on top which gets fed Google AdSense ads..

Chris

So, Giles, your mission (if you choose to accept it) is to influence the Google NonSense robot to put a particular advert at the top of your blog.

giles
