Google Adsense, Video Games, And Buy Now On Youtube

Written by George Manty  · October 10, 2008

I have had a few problems this week with my site so I decided to wait until next week to get back to a regular posting schedule. I wanted to go ahead and end the week by letting you know about two very cool news items…

The first one I heard on Twitter from my friend Garry Conn and Internet marketing guru Joel Comm (almost at the same time). According to CNET Google is adding support for Adsense in video games. That is very cool news for game developers. While there are already ways of monetizing games with in-game advertising, Google Adsense entering this market is really good news for game developers.

Secondly, I heard from Michel Fortin that YouTube will soon be introducing the ability to add “Buy Now” links to videos. Video has become an excellent way to market products and services and YouTube is about to make it even better. This is great news for video marketing.

Next week you can expect my second to last post in my Getting Started series. Have a great weekend!

    This YouTube buy now option sounds like it could be very powerful and completely change the basis of YouTube.

    I agree. I plan on expanding into video marketing next year and the YoutTube news is quite exciting to me.

    i also agree but, there are some questions i would live to leave clear, for expample, what happen if somebody would click many time in you site, in an adsense box?? but not the owner.. just somebody who want to heart you… google would cancel you acount? and how it works, with the ip? and if somebody from my company would do it?

    I wonder how Google will deal with click fraud in the video games as well. It seems to me that Adsense inside video games would cause them some new issues to deal with. I will have to check to see what Google says about it.

    adding the buy now button is a masterstroke. They really seem to be on the ball with this element of internet marketing.
