About the Ads

After toying with the idea of including ads delivered by Google, I finally decided to take the plunge in late September 2004. I'm under no illusion that I'll get rich off them; if they help pay for the cost of the domain name and site hosting, I figure that helps. Plus I find it mildly interesting to see what ads Google displays, based upon whatever I've been writing about.

I don't do any product placement, so to speak. If I write about a product or service, it's because I feel I have something to say about it. I'm not shilling for anyone.

I don't endorse any product or service that appears in a Google ad. The only way that would happen is by chance, if I wrote positively about something and Google displayed a corresponding ad.

I don't select the ads. If you see an ad that seems objectionable or surprisingly contrary to my positions, it's only because Google served them.

I'm not even an Amazon Associate or anything like that. Not that there's anything wrong with that, as long as it's disclosed that a site makes money that way.

I do have a link to DealNews in the left column that serves as a monthly contest entry for me. I read DealNews myself and find it useful. Your mileage may vary.
