Today, Google officially launched the Onsite feature of it's Adsense program which lets advertisers, wishing to place ads on Google-supported websites, be able to sign up directly on those sites like the::unwired is being part of it too.
Google said the new feature, known as Onsite Advertiser Sign-up, will help website publishers (like me) to connect with a wider range of small advertisers (like you - possibly) when using Google's behind-the-scenes ad management system.
Previously, advertisers seeking to market on websites using Google's syndicated AdSense advertising system had to enroll through Google's AdWords program and list sites where they wished their ads to be featured. Now, the instant sign-up feature ties site owners and advertisers by giving web publishers more direct control over how advertisers select ads on particular sites. In turn, site owners and Google each receive a cut of resulting ad sales, just to be honest here.
AdSense and Adsense Onsite, which allows website publishers to run keyword text or image ads through a system managed by Google, has become a phenomenally popular way for sites to generate revenue from each ad clicked on by site visitors. The new feature is designed to allow websites to sign up smaller advertisers while leaving the headaches of managing the production and billing process to Google's automated software.
Advertisers wishing to advertise directly on a websites using the syndicated Google advertising program can click on an "Advertise on This Site" link that takes them to a Google page where they can create an AdWords ad for the specific website.
Ads created through Onsite Advertiser Sign-Up will compete in the same auction as all other Google ads. The new feature is an extension of Google's site-targeted advertising, which was launched earlier this year.
If you are interested to try it out, why not trying it at the::unwired. Google Onsite is a good and easy opportunity to promote your products and services at the::unwired. ;-)
