Mobile Images Ads from Google

If you do use mobile to browse, and hate images ads at the same time, here is a bad news for you. Google has announced ” Mobile Image Ads”. Oh wait, what if you really liked this idea, and would like to know more about it ? Okay, read on for more details.

First, take a look at the mobile image ads example page to see samples.

All mobile image ads are keyword-targeted, are priced on a cost-per-click basis, and must link to a mobile web page. That means, the page on which you see the ad will be a mobile friendly page, or mobile web page and the website, or url that you are going to reach by clicking the mobile ad, also, will be a mobile web page.

Publishers who are already using AdSense for mobile content just need to update their AdSense code to start displaying mobile ads on their site. So, if you are a publisher who has a mobile web page, and a google adsense account, its your turn to monetize your mobile page.

Mobile image ads are currently available in Australia, China, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, the UK, and the US

Question for you : Do you think, if Yahoo! launches their program soon, do you think its going to gain popularity ?

I have one reason to say it may. It has paypal as a payment option, which will attract non-us publishers. Google’s checks takes ages to arrive and get cleared. But, with paypal, things get faster. However, Google can add paypal anytime, and Yahoo! may loose that advantage too. Or Google might look at acquring paypal too lol !!

Yahoo! should concentrate on bringing new publishers in. I think they can try something like what they did with the WordPress plugin. They can concentrate on wordpess ( self hosted ) publishers and bring some easy tool. Or they can offer good referral rewards.
