When Seth Jayson at Motley Fool suggested the other day that Google’s AdSense is killing the internet by driving the creation of sites that exist solely to squeeze money from AdSense, many people scoffed.
Pay-per-click advertising is destroying the economics of content, making it more profitable to create entire sites with nothing but ads.
“Direct navigation” is a euphemism for navigating around content and right to ads.
