First Google video advertiser?

Beet.tv, I’ve learned, thanks to a phone call from Andy Plesser, who runs that tech-centric video blog, might be Google’s first video advertiser. They are splitting the $15 CPM (revenue per thousand downloads) 50/50. The ad is at the end of his latest videos.

Not everyone on Google Video will get advertising, by the way. They are hand picking video blogs to get advertising.

Congrats to Andy on being picked — it’ll be interesting to see how Google evolves its video advertising. Certainly this is a big deal for Google since they own both Google Video and YouTube.

In other Google news, the Wall Street Journal got bearish on Google and that got Internet Stock site “Seeking Alpha” to write about it.

Can you tell I’m doing my link/gesture blog? Heheh. I haven’t linked to the feed lately.

Hey, Google Reader crew, why don’t you link to my feed on the link blog page?

    We provide an auto-discovery link for the link blog feed. We thought that between Safari, IE 7 and Firefox the browser’s feed icon/link was the way to go.

    Is there a reason why Google is picking only certain videos to add advertising? Any thoughts on why it is not open to all content providers?

  5. [...] Schobleizer reported that Google might have formed a partnership with video blog Beet.tvas its first video advertiser, involving splitting the $15 CPM (revenue per thousand downloads) 50/50. However, “Not everyone on Google Video will get advertising” – Google will cherry-pick video blogs to participate in the deal. [...]

    I ran across this link when searching more RECENT info on the NEW GoogleVideo Ad Revenue Sharing Program that I ALSO am involved in. It seemed like a “scam” @ first but it seems legit. Nice to find someone else out here. If you hear anything new, please let me know. I will do the same. My contact seems very reliable & sincere.
