Google Ads on Netscape.com?
Well I was over at Netscape, reading comments when a strange thing happened I noticed an advertisement. This doesn’t happen very often since I have learned to ignore them over the hundreds of hours I spend surfing. The strange thing was that it was a Google ads box on Netscape.
The thing is why Google ads? Doesn’t Netscape, which is owned by AOL, compete with Google in most places? A few things popped into my head about this, is this a small step towards Google and AOL working together? Maybe, and it might help AOL in the long run if that happens. Another thought was this could be the way Jason Calacanis would pay the submitters $1000 dollars a month. Just run Google ads, shove the money they make into an account and pay the submitters from that Account.
It’s just odd to see a large company like AOL supportand promote a competitors product.
