AdSense Business News Things That Blogging Bought

Pinoy problogger buys a Toyota Vios!

Toyota Vios.

Jumping across my favorite local blogs, I chanced upon fellow WP hacker Kates Gasis’ blog, one which I haven’t visited for several weeks now. One of his recent entries mentions Linkworth, a service better known for text link advertising and search engine marketing. Recently, Linkworth has released four new products to complement its core services: LinkPost, LinkInTxt, LinkArt & LinkDir, this according to Kates’ entry.

Worth noting though is his little side remark regarding these services, at the very last paragraph:

These are 4 new ways to earn a little online. It might be little but it bought me a brand new car.

Among local bloggers doing this professionally, perhaps Kates is the very first to buy a brand new car with his online earnings! He was quick to reply on my comment on the specific model: a Toyota Vios, easily more than half a million pesos. He’s now one of a few who publicly acknowledged buying a car through blogging, like yuga and irawan.

So what’s next for the Filipino professional bloggers?

Accidental AdSense clicks

The official Google AdSense blog wrote about incorrect implementations of AdSense blocks in various layouts. This clarifies their stand on preventing any form of encouragement for users to click on ad blocks, especially now that they’re directly addressing what used to be considered legal methods of optimizing for AdSense.

Listed among the improper uses:

  • In close proximity to Macromedia Flash games
  • Under pop-ups or download prompts
  • Near site navigation controls on your pages, such as drop-downs or menu links

With these developments, I’m sure many AdSense–dependent publishers will have to re–evaluate their strategies to not risk provoking the big G’s ire. What are your plans now?
