That’s right, yet another interesting Beta from the company that just won’t quit. We all know about their plan to scan libraries into their database. Some of us even watch the new T.V. show “Google Current” (even though it sucks). But Google just won’t stop stretching. Now it wants to take its adsense program and apply it to print magazines. Can the model that now defines Internet advertising be exported?
I love hearing crazy future Google talk. You know what I mean. People pontificate on the idea that Google will merge with Wal-Mart or buy-out Time Warner. Truth is, it’ll never happen. But it is interesting to see the ways that Google is stretching itself out. Perhaps like the Roman army it will go too far. I mean, it’s one thing to dominate Internet searches and advertising, but to now go to print?
Google print ads seems simple enough. Just find the magazine (or price) that fits what you are looking for, click in your design and poof…..you’re in the paper. Let’s wait and see if it takes off.
