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 domain. However, publishers may simply email, 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.

Followed the instructions at the link in the previous comment.

It was fairly straightforward, though there was a bit of shooting from the hip.

Now, time will tell (after the next post) if it's working correctly.
