Third day, and already I'm leary
Earlier today it wasn't serving up ads. At first, I thought they took
exception to my critical stance towards them, or of the disclaimer I have
just below their ads and dropped me. But no, I was still signed up. It's
just that for a period of time, Google just … couldn't serve up ads.
Then, when it was working again, what do I see? An add for “Diary Of An
Anorexic Girl” followed by an ad for “Fleming's Steakhouse” (at least the
steakhouse is in Florida
and not Massachusetts).
What is it with Google?
I've set up my site so that Google
will index each individual entry, and yes, the Googlebot is pulling up individual
entries, so why can't Google match the advertising better? I thought the
whole point of AdSense was targetted text based ads.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
