Google AdSense Got Game

Google Adsense expert Joel Comm created a Flash game that demonstrates how to make money using AdSense. The tycoon-style game lets you select a type of content, the placement of ads, how much you spend on marketing (via Google) and other parameters.

It's a simplistic version of the real challenges of launching and profiting from a website, but a good primer on things that nascent publishers need to consider. Comm has written several books about online marketing including a title about AdSense, so he is speaking from experience.

Google has a little glitch with AdSense in the past week as a coding screw up prompted some users to receive a request to install software if they clicked on an AdSense ad. The problem existed for 4 days before being fixed, according to eWeek's GoogleWatch.
