Google Introduced AdSense For Conversation Today.
This could be a fantastic way to profit and shorten even those unwanted conversations.
Imagine, you see that dweeb approaching and think:
"Not him again! I wasted my lunch break yesterday while he told be all about his 10 year old’s potty training from the weekend."
Well, now you can simple click the ad that appears and go on to some more interesting but related topic. Or, maybe he will see the ad for that potty training for 10 year olds and leave you alone.
Think of the possibilities for AdSense for Conversation arbitrage.
You can now use and advertisement close at hand to start a money making conversation. You don’t even need to own the other advertisment, just stand near a sign and start a conversation with a passer-by. Once the conversation starts, Google’s algorithms will find ads matching the conversation for your mark to click on.
My only fear is that all the above will really create made for AdSense conversations of low quality.
I am sure Google will insure this does not happen. Probably penalizing speakers that do not use proper grammar or are paid speakers. One question is how this will affect political speakers and conversation. With the coming elections, this is sure to be a hot niche that will be abused.
AdSense for conversation looks to be one of the most profitable and easy to use AdSense programs.

Introducing AdSense for conversations We’re happy to announce the launch of AdSense for conversations, a new type of monetization solution that "puts the ‘context’ in contextual advertising". Now, in just a few simple steps, you can begin displaying ads that are relevant to the topics you’re discussing — in an unobtrusive screen above your head.
I thought this was a much better announcement than the Gmail announcement today.
