Blindsided by Google Adsense


I have a food blog where I identify amazing tastes that I have found.  Like most of my blogs, I let Google put ads on my blogs with their Adsense programs to make money.

 I profiled a club sandwich turned into a panini that was amazing in taste, and a Google ad torpedoed the message.  There was a huge "fat" ad on top of my blog entry.  Looking at a fat person turns you off potentially fattening food, and somehow the message of how good the sandwich is, was drowned out by the ad.  Ironic.  As Marshall McLuhan said, the medium is the message.
