FeedBlitz Takes the Lead in RSS Monetization as Google Kills AdSense for Feeds

FeedBlitz, the innovative social media and email marketing service that enables online publishers to better reach, manage and track their audience, announces the immediate availability of its own replacement ad revenue service for RSS publishers who have been abandoned by Google’s shuttering of the FeedBurner AdSense for Feeds program today. RSS feed publishers can switch their feeds to FeedBlitz, and then replace Google’s AdSense for Feeds with FeedBlitz’s superior RSS feed monetization solution, currently earning up to 3 times more on a like-for-like basis than Google’s now abandoned product.

Frustrated Google FeedBurner users can leave FeedBurner, take control of RSS, email and social media marketing automation, and increase earnings via FeedBlitz’s RSS and Email advertising programs by downloading their free copy of the FeedBurner Migration Guide, a step-by-step manual describing the process. RSS-only functionality “ including the RSS ad monetization program “ is available from FeedBlitz starting at as little as $1.49 per month.

??Google’s closing of the AdSense for Feeds program is another nail in the coffin for their FeedBurner unit,” said Phil Hollows, Founder and CEO of FeedBlitz. “The end of Google’s program affects bloggers’ pocket books, and removes significant revenues from major publications and online magazines. Sites have relied on RSS ad revenues as a consistent source of income. Unlike Google, FeedBlitz is stepping up to enable online marketers to distribute, measure and monetize their content “ and we’re delivering a more effective, fully supported RSS feed ad service.”

Independent Praise for FeedBlitz Ad Programs

??FeedBlitz can pay for itself and make bloggers money, too! Their Ad Revenue program has helped my daily email to 76,000+ subscribers pay for itself. I’m thrilled that FeedBlitz has helped me turn a monthly expense (the cost of using FeedBlitz as my email provider) into monthly income (my FeedBlitz ad revenue now exceeds my expense for using FeedBlitz). You’ve got to try it to see if your emails can pay for themselves too!” says Heather Hernandez, Owner of Freebies4Mom.com.

??I wanted to give everyone an update. In 5 days, I’ve made nearly half of my normal AdSense for Feeds monthly amount with the FeedBlitz revenue share ads,” says Andrea Deckard of Savings Lifestyle.
