Posted on October 18, 2004Wired reports that ads are starting to appear with increasing frequency in RSS feeds. RSS aggregators like Moreover, Feedster and Topix.net have all recently included ads along with their syndicated feeds according to Wired. While it makes sense for advertisers to want to reach RSS feed subscribers, publisher should be careful not to damage this once ad-free medium by over doing it.
