Yet another Google sell-out
Looks like I've drunk the kool-aid. Yes, I'm sporting Google ads now. Well, sort of.
I'm trying this out, so please bear with me. I've rigged the ads to display if you're coming from Google or some other search engine. So if the referring URL is a search engine, you see the ad, otherwise, you don't (ie, if you come from a bookmark, or from a link in your RSS/Atom newsreader). The conditional placement is done via some referring URL sniffing (mt-refsearch is doing the heavy lifting).
But I may wind up turning that conditional off, if this is at all successful. Fair warning.
If you're not seeing the ads, here's what you do: search for something at Google (or your favorite search engine-- except a9.com, for now) with "brad choate" as part of the query. Click on one of the links and you should see a page with the ads. If you want to remove them, just click on any of the site navigation links on the page and they go away.
I knew I had a reason for registering a .com domain!
I, for one, welcome our new Google overlords.
PS: Baby #3 is now 10 days overdue. Ahem. So please, take a moment and click a few of those ad links. I've got a gut feeling that college won't be any cheaper 18 years from now. (Or in 16 years or 14 years.)
