Early November, I reported that Google plans on extending its Adwords program to Newspapers as well. The news is finally out with the release of Google Print Ads. They are even running a special promotion where you can sign up and publish a newspaper ad by August 31, 2007.

Everyone has been waiting long for the release of the Agloco’s Viewbar which enables you to get paid for surfing sponsored sites and pages. Now after surfing a lot on internet, I found out a hidden and new website which also pays to surf sponsored pages but without installing anything or waiting for any release. 😀 AdBux.
Ars Technica reports that Google will be buying DoubleClick for $3.1 billion. This makes it Google’s biggest acquisition and is also an excellent way of thwarting the competition that DoubleClick presented to Google’s Adwords program.
AuctionAds (aff) launched yesterday. AuctionAds lets you display live eBay auctions. I was introduced to AuctionAds by Mark of WLTC.
As promised, ReviewMe has now launched their Affiliate Program. Ten days back they announced that your prices could be set. You will now get paid $25 for any referred sale even if the visitor does not purchase a review from your blog.

The gist of the changes is: – Last month’s policy on images has been upheld and now listed in the Policy Page. – You can now add a link unit to the Search Results page if you are embedding the search results page in your site.
I wrote about Chitika being an additional revenue stream. By default Chitika is non-contextual. And if you are running Adsense, then you have to run Chitika in this mode.
I’ve written about making money through advertisements using Google Adsense and TLA. These are two which have helped me keep my earnings even so far (read can do a lot better still). Yet another popular program is Chitika eMiniMalls which has worked wonders for some and just not worked for others.
