In the last few months, we’ve been taking a long, hard look at all the things we are doing to ensure we are investing our resources in the projects that will have the biggest impact for our users and partners. While we hoped that Print Ads would create a new revenue stream for newspapers and produce more relevant advertising for consumers, the product has not created the impact that we — or our partners — wanted. As a result, we will stop offering Print Ads on February 28. For advertisers who have campaigns already booked, we will place their ads through March 31.

Asa incepe postul directorului al Google PrintAds, care anunta sfarsitul incercarii Google de a vinde publicitate in presa scrisa. Asta in conditiile in care lucrurile se cam complica in zona de print.

Intre timp, asa cum zice si Orlando, asteptam cu nerabdare rezultatele finale pe 2008 ale Google, Inc. Rezultate care vor influenta chiar si piata de publicitate online din .ro.
