While nothing new, ads via RSS feeds arenâ€™t as widely used as regular ads on your site or blog. My guess itâ€™s because you donâ€™t really know how to handle it, itâ€™s a lot more of a bother to hack a RSS feed than just put some Adsense code in your sidebar.
Enter programs who do this for you. Feedburner has been doing it for some time now, and now Text Link Ads has launched their Feedvertising service. It seems easy enough to get started with, but if youâ€™re uncertain you can check out Tubetorialsâ€™ video on the matter.
I predict at battle for the feed ads in the future. And when will Google go there with, er, Feedsense?
