Editor’s Note
Have You Tried the Google Content Network Lately?

If you haven’t tried the Google Content Network lately, it’s time to revisit that decision. Used wisely, recent reports indicate that it may provide superior ROI. To reacquaint yourself with this option, or to delve into what it’s all about if you never really bothered to find out much about it when you first started your AdWords campaigns, check out Google’s new Getting Started Guide for the Content Network. There’s even a Content Network microsite that provides a listing of the sites Google partners with and available ad formats.

Any comments or suggestions for the Pay Per Click Universe Journal can be sent to me via email at  [email protected].

"Followtopia is a search engine, but its usefulness for pay-per-click advertising lies more in the extra information it provides about pages that wind up in the search engine results from a user query. One feature can actually be used as a keyword suggestion tool for SEO and paid search by those looking for a slightly different approach to generating keyword ideas." Read the entire review here.
