Site Update, Six Apart News

By - November 09, 2004

six-logoFolks (and particularly Firefox folks) please bear with me as we update the site. We’re moving to MT 3.0 and there will be some glitches.

As long as I’m talking about MT, parent company Six Apart announced a deal with Kanoodle today. Over at Boing Boing we’ve been working with Kanoodle for a while, and as much as I’d love to say the service works perfectly, there are still major issues, mainly on the contextual side. (The folks there have been great to work with.) Boing Boing is a very hard-to-categorize site, and so far, it’s been very difficult to match the Kanoodle ads to the BB content. I am sure, however, that easier-to-categorize sites will welcome this new service. Release in extended entry….excerpt:

Kanoodle, a leading provider of sponsored listings for search results and content pages and Six Apart, the maker of award-winning Movable Type and TypePad weblog software, today announced that the companies will offer TypePad subscribers the ability to easily add Kanoodle’s content-targeted sponsored links to their sites.  This marks the first time that webloggers will have seamless access to revenue-generating sponsored links as part of their publishing toolset.  The companies expect the product to be live by the first quarter of next year.

    the first weblog company to offer users contextual ads? Ha! Are they forgetting about blogspot offering users a share of the adsense pie?
