A clear example of keywords-based blog advertising not working: Over at Guido Fawkes, a slightly biting post about an MP’s official picture going tieless (and open down the chest a la Tom Jones) coughs up a recurring ad for Thomas Pink, the shirt maker who also draws sizable revenue from cuff link and tie sales.
CORRECTION: As Guido pointed out to me in a follow-up email, the ads are handpicked. And I was too busy playing the “aren’t I a clever man for identifying this inadequacy in blogging mechanics” to get the joke. I am a git.
