I did not find that much revenue was generated for me from that program.
I can only speculate, but my guess is that most people are using feed readers that merely show the headline of the item. They simply click on a link and they go directly to the page if they are interested in viewing it. This would bypass the adsense for feed product.
Is it possible that, as a result, the adsense for feeds product was generating such little revenue that it was not worth it, even for Google? That would seem odd. One would assume that that even with the few remaining feedreaders that might show the whole post or snippets of it, that they would still be earning good revenue from it.
On the other hand, perhaps there are not as many people utilizing feed readers as we might think.
Another possibility is that perhaps they were unable to detect and control the false clicks as they are with the regular adsense product.
I suppose we could speculate all day long, but the bottom line is that adsense for feeds is going away.
I would say that from my own personal, subjective experience, adsense is still the best game in town regarding revenue generating ad platforms.
My limited experiments with other platforms has not generated equivalent results.
I still hear stories about other people being ‘more’ successful with these platforms. My rule of thumb is, even if it works for others but not me, it is useless for me. I have to go by what is working / not working for me regardless of what others say.
This world of Internet revenue is an extremely complicated game. You really cannot go by what others say. Many people lie in order to sell you a product, a subscription or worse : ‘information’.
The question of the skeptics: “If it is working so well, why would someone ‘sell’ the secrets?
The answer would appear to be: The money is made in selling secrets that don’t actually work! I highly suggest that you don’t become like those people… Try to work and trade in a fair and ‘above board’ manner. Give an honest product or service for an honest amount of pay.
Unfortunately, in today’s world, many people could care less about ‘the right thing’. This will lead to bigger problems in the future. Without moral integrity, the entire system is in jeopardy. The only thing that makes systems work is the willingness of the people to ‘do the right thing’ and abide by what is morally and ethically right. Without that in place, problems will surface. When too many people become that way, society will have trouble existing.
I Digressed Again
I’ve been doing that lately, I did the same thing in my last post as well.
The truth is never easy to get at or find. That’s what makes it valuable. One book that I know of that seems to speak a great amount of truth is the book: Zhuan Falun. I suggest you read it. You can get a free copy at https://falundafa.org
