During our August 16, 2008 program, we will discuss online resources and aggregations of online magazines with online magazine editor, Guy Kawasaki, alltop.com. How do you quickly find the headlines of the latest stories from dozens of sites and blogs? Find out the answer to this question and more during the Technically Speaking Radio program.

In other words, our goal is the “cessation of Internet stagnation” by providing “aggregation without aggravation.”

News: Google Adsense in Feedburner feeds




Until recently, when attempting to use Google Adsense for feeds, publishers experienced major disappointment. Originally, Feedburner was optimistic about this endeavor. However, for most Feedburner publishers the "FAN" option to monetize feeds simply did not work. Moreover, Feedburner announced that they were not quite certain when publishers would be able to insert ads into feeds. Illustration of Feedburner FAN page shown below:




But, Google has since taken matters into their own hands, developing an easy integration for feeds with their Adsense service.


Consider the current process “Beta”. Google has indicated that they will shortly make this migration process automatic so that the publisher can control the experience him-/herself via the Feedburner.Google.com domain. However, publishers may simply email, adsense-support-aff@google.com the following information:

  • Your FeedBurner account username
  • The Google Account email address you use to sign in to AdSense

And, they will help you set-up the account. But, please note that it is mandatory that you use your Google Account to use Adsense for your feeds.

After you have emailed the above information to Google, they will email you to outline the next steps for completing your feed migration.

After your account is created, you will be prompted for detailed information regarding your initiative. As will most online forms, you will be able to identify the more important fields by looking for an asterisk. You will also be given a chance to present attachments that are related to your proposal.

Subsequently, you will have a chance to preview the proposal prior to submission. This way, you can check to see if there are any changes you would like to make because once you have submitted your proposal, you will not have a chance to go back and make changes. Once you are certain you have included all relevant information, you may formally submit your proposal by clicking the "submit" button.

After you have submitted your proposal, you will notice that you are not in the "evaluation" You will have the opportunity to preview your proposal as it will appear to our team.

Google Book Search on Technically Speaking Radio


Google Book Search: The First Stop for Independent Publishers

Marketing Ideas for Writers


Experienced authors know that the most difficult part about writing a book is getting it published and marketing it. Sometimes authors will abandon the idea of self-promotion. Other authors allow an agent or publisher to market their book. Many authors have no idea that Google Book Search is an option that is free and readily available to them.

During my interview with Ben Bunnell, Manager of Library Partnerships of Google Book Search


Ben Bunnell is the Manager of Library Partnerships for Google Book Search. In this role, he works with libraries in an operational capacity to get them started with the project to digitize books from their collections. Prior to this, Bunnell worked for two years at a venture capital firm as a business research librarian. He holds a Masters degree in library science and an MBA from the University of Michigan.

What is Google Book Search?

Google’s project to digitize all the books in the world. Google will allow these books to be indexed so that everyone can find them.

How does Google Book Search work?

Where do the books come from?

How do you get the books into the index?

Who is using Google Book Search and how are they using it?

Can I download books – can I read the entire book?

What are the technical challenges that you've encountered?

How long will the project take to complete?
