New Google Groups Will Increase AdSense Footprint
I don't have a problem with Google running ads in Google Groups, much like they do for Gmail. I do find it odd, though, that ads aren't mentioned anywhere, except buried in some of the help files. For example, this help page says: "As always, Google Groups never displays popups and banner ads. You see only relevant text ads." If the new Google Groups do become popular, this will, indeed, expand the AdSense footprint. That's obviously good for Google's revenue. Might be good for Google advertisers, too. I wonder if Google will, in the future, make it possible to target ads for specific Google Groups. That would be a useful feature. In the meantime, I suspect they're simply lumped in with the Content network.
