Google AdSense for RSS running at Weblogs, Inc.

In case you didn’t notice, some of your favorite Weblogs, Inc. blogs now have Google AdSense in the RSS feeds.

What does this mean?
Well, it means we know we can make money off of our RSS feeds and that we can justify providing youour readerswith free “full” feeds to our content. Many folks are moving to headline only feeds so that you have to click through to the Web I can understand this, how else is a publisher going to make money? Well, that question is answered and we’re psyched to be part of it.

What it also means is that people who have been stealing our content are now going to be stealing it with advertisements in it so, while we don’t allow others to re-publish our full-feeds to the web (headlines only please!), at least we will make some money off it when they do!

Here is a TUAW (the Unofficial Apple Weblog) feed as viewed in Newsgator running Google AdSense for RSS.

This is gonna be huge like HUGE HUGE HUGE!!!
