When I first read the title Introducing the Adsense API beta I got quite excited.. Until I realised exactly what the API is for and who it’s targeted at.
The key part to read is:
We’ve started taking applications from people whose sites receive a minimum of 100,000 daily page views. To be eligible, your site must register users who then maintain their web content through your site. The types of sites we’re looking for include web hosts, blog hosts, Wiki hosts, forum hosts, and web publishers.
Ok, that rules a lot of us out right away. The great thing about it however is that it sounds like this API will pave the way to easier revenue sharing. Just imagine not only getting linkbacks for your forum and article submissions, but to be able to make money through Adsense on other people’s sites at the same time..
