    I got the following from Perry Marshall and it raises some interesting points about Google at the moment...

    Maybe with the added financial pressure - and the IPO of facebook, we may see Google forced to wind back some of their anti-IM activity?

    What do you think?

    Just got an email from AdWords...

    They're offering $150 free credit if you spend $75. So buy 1 - get 2 free !

    It's only for the next month, so they're obviously trying to pull in funds quick for their accounts depy!

    It might work well in our favor on the adwords side, but adsense publishers will begin to suffer. We will soon find our percentages getting cut as well as the CPC reduced. Bad news for adsense folks.

    Google will make their money, like they should.

    I'll say this. . take a look at their ads these days. . . they are becoming much more seemless. The used to force a 'Ads by Google' . . which then changed to a hover drop down to see it . . which now has changed to a tiny icon.

    I think your on the right track. . . as $$$ dries up . . . so will their high and mighty on ethics of advertising.

    No matter what happens, Google will get their Big Bite. That is their policy and reason to be.

    Question is, how much can we get in the process?
