Google Expected to Cut 300 Jobs at DoubleClick

Google plans to eliminate approximately 300 jobs at DoubleClick, the company it recently acquired. This represents one-quarter of the 1200 Doubleclick jobs in North America.

DoubleClick employs 1500 employees worldwide. Employees outside the USA may be affected by this downsizing later.

Google also plans to sell DoubleClick’s Performics a search marketing/advertising firm on search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Microsoft. Keeping Performics would put Google in a conflict of interest because it would be engaged in business on both sides of the table, essentially because of selling advertising space on its own engine.

Google shares are currently trading in the $460 range, after reaching a peak of $750 in November 2007, which is a significant plunge within just 5 months.

In addition, rumors are circulating that Google may also acquire Skype (eBay) and the online travel site

TradeDoubler Announces its System of Contextual Advertising, AdMatch

AdMatch TradeDoubler

A newcomer to the sponsored links, TradeDoubler, an European leader in affiliate marketing, will embark on contextual advertising on March 31 with AdMatch.

Knowing the seriousness of the TradeDoubler platform and its advertisers, I look forward to seeing what AdMatch looks like.

The sponsored links will be available in three formats: text, xml feed and product display.

In its press release, the company says

“AdMatch operates as follows: the solution scans the contents of web pages and facilitates the placement of advertisements along the site’s content as relevant and contextual. Thus, AdMatch helps improve the relevance of ads on your site, optimizing conversion rates and ultimately increasing your commissions.”

For the moment, there is no site for, .eu, or .fr online. I think TradeDoubler will be an integral part of Admatch in and among the members’ section.

$132 994 from Adsense in 1 month

Blogger and Webmaster Jeremy Schoemaker aka “Shoemoney” answered questions on his blog about the famous picture where he is holding a $ 132 994.97 Google Adsense Check.

Check is real even if it’s hard to believe (click to enlarge) :

Shoemoney Adsense Check

It was for the month August 2005 and we can see the full month report from AdSense (he has permission from Google to display CTR and eCPM rates) : (click to enlarge)

August 2005 Shoemoney Adsense

– revenues were made on his website (Wallpapers and Free Ringtones)

– it’s 100% user generated content (494 000 members)

– at the time his expenses were 1 server @ 299$ per month for hosting, so it’s at least 130k profit.

– none of traffic was PPC (Pay Per Click) but was 70% from direct access, 15% from search engines and 15% from referrals

– stats : 75 000 uniques visitors per day

– to the question Do you think its possible to still earn that kind of revenue? (most often asked question), Jeremy answers : YES.

– Shoemoney never tried to make any money the first 1.5 years it was running. He just concentrated on providing a good service. About 2 years after he started the site he started to do good revenue from AdSense

Insane, no ?! these nice pics make me living again… even if people like “Shoemoney” are not a lot in this world…

And see, there is more to come: Shoemoney says that Adsense earnings only count for 5% of his total revenue on his websites.

In october Shoemoney’s blog gave him $ 30 000 in direct sales (advertising logos, banners).

In march 2007 he earned $ 709 626.81 as an affiliate of Commission Junction.

Shoemoney Commission Junction

Back to Adsense Check, when I look on comments in the post, Shoemoney says:

“I have a good friend that was doing about 2M per month.. so that would be about 65k per day so yes 100k every few days for sure is possible”

The guy who is speaking about must be Marcus from (2 millions unique visitors per day!)

So I am going to bed now and I will put Shoemoney’s Adsense Check just above my bed.. may be it will bring me success…

The future of Advertising

What do you think?

Internet will lead advertising by 2016

According to Financial Times by 2016 the internet could be the single biggest advertising medium, and brands could find it harder to reach audiences using conventional campaigns.

Place au:internet marketing or webmarketing!

Google Adwords 2006 Gift

Shimon Sandler just received his Google’s Christmas Gift as an avertiser for using Adwords, a Ipod Shuffle.

Yahoo already sent him a corkscrew kit and MSN a bottle of wine.

Shimon doesn’t tell us how much he spends annually in Google as a Qualified Adwords Professional ?

Google Adsense sent earlier the 2006 Christmas Gift to its best publishers.

Why Adsense and Adwords do not send gifts randomly ? everybody would get a chance! 🙂
