The Media Guru

Yesterday, when I loaded up my latest post on the Tata Nano, I saw this video ad at the bottom. At first I thought that it was an image ad that was made to look like a Blogger video…

But it works. Turned out it was really Google AdSense video ad unit… the first time I’ve come across one.

Video ad units (not YouTube embedded ads) are quite common in the US, it’s quite rare to find them outside the US as publishers only handpick specific sites to generate maximum exposure.

After the scrolling ads, now video ads are being tested on my blog! The guinea blog for AdSense! LOL

The video is just like the one used by Blogger, except that there’s a an “Ads by Google” instead of the Blogger logo. The video is hosted on Google Video.

Anyone can watch the video, including the publisher. But you get paid only if someone clicks on the video link that shows up…

Here’s the video of the ad video:
