    RSS ads have already started – almost.

    I signed up for Blogmine. It is advertised to insert ads in entries and blog RSS feeds. Being a new service their are problems. The ads inserted allow no modification, i.e. they show on every entry and you cannot change the frequency. Also however they insert the ads into your feed crashes the feed. The service is supposed to be working the problem so at the moment it is wait and see.

    You can view the results at my blog: Cranial Cavity

    Yeah, I signed up for Blogmine too and as you can see I am not using them. They don’t have an admin panel to see site statistics which worries me because I have no idea what my site is producing for them. They also do not have a way to limit the number of ads so every post has an ad including every post in an RSS feed. That’s too much.

    I wrote them and asked about these very things and never received a reply so I went with BrightAds by Kanoodle.

    I haven’t looked at Kanoodle very much as my application was just approved today, so we’ll see.
