on online advertising

as you may have noticed, olog has begun to participate in google adsense.

i've decided to do this both because i was curious about the mechanics of the algorithm (check how ads change depending on what's posted on olog), as well as how much money a low readership blog like mine (~20 page impressions/day) can possibly make. admittedly, it was all inspired by andrea harner's adsense keyword cartoons.

it's all very curious stuff, and here is a piece by cringely on just this topic.
