** Associated Press Offers RSS Feeds **

The Associated Press now offers RSS feeds of their top news stories. RSS (Real Simple Syndication) makes it possible for content providers to offer instant updates to their readers without sending email.

Traditionally,repparttar 131544 Associated Press marketed their services exclusively to newspapers and online sources such as Yahoo! News.

Now, by offering their RSS feeds directly to consumers at,repparttar 131545 Associated Press is obviously seeking to bypass online news sources and go directly torepparttar 131546 consumer.

Regarding the AdSense Updates...

There are some downsides that I have to point out however. Atrepparttar momentrepparttar 131538 maximum size ofrepparttar 131539 ĎAd Linksí box is 200*90, with a maximum of five topics. This is fine for people who userepparttar 131540 smaller Ad Units, but for those who userepparttar 131541 biggest rectangle possible this could be a problem. The other fact to consider is how long it may take your visitors to adapt torepparttar 131542 new layout. I have no evidence to back this up, as Iíve only been experimenting withrepparttar 131543 new system for two days now, but it does seem that, inrepparttar 131544 short term at least, you will be seeing a decrease in revenue from your AdSense account asrepparttar 131545 visitors get used torepparttar 131546 new layout.

The most beneficial changes Google has bestowed on us, however, has to berepparttar 131547 changes inrepparttar 131548 payment system. A real boon torepparttar 131549 non-US based publishers such as myself has to berepparttar 131550 supply of local currency cheques. Now you can elect to receive your check in Pounds Sterling, Indian Rupees, Euros, Turkish Lira or any of 43 local currencies. There is alsorepparttar 131551 option to sign up forrepparttar 131552 beta ofrepparttar 131553 new EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer) payment option, which will deposit money directly into your back account.

So those arerepparttar 131554 changes that Google has made to its AdSense program. But as ours IS to wonder why, maybe I can make a comment ofrepparttar 131555 possibility of why this update has come this week. Is it coincidence that atrepparttar 131556 same time as Google was updating its program Yahoo has announced its own textual Ad serving service, based on its Overture Paid Inclusion search engine? Personally I donít think so. But competition is almost always a good thing, and who knows, maybe Yahoo may even spur Google into giving peoplerepparttar 131557 Ad tracking capabilities that many publishers have been crying out for.
