Fred Wilson, a venture capital investor and blogger in New York is ready to go on strike, an AdSense strike that is. The blogger feels he isn't getting a fair deal from Google's advertisement programme.
His blog attracts a different, more attractive audience than the site where the kid from around the corner muses about the taste of the beer he had last night. Google however pays the same fee to both "publishers".
"I think the audience on my blog is worth more than $0.175 per click and I am going to find a way to get that number up," Wislon writes in a post today. Running Google ads over the past nine months has made him a cool $313.48.
Wilson has a point, but it's something Google at this point can't do too much about. The few bloggers who do make money, like London based Rafat Ali, don't use Google. Looks like there is an opening for a Google competitor.
