A New Era at Medpundit: Today, for the first time since I paid to get rid of automatic blogspot ads, I've opened the blog to advertising. I've been considering it for a while, but I was leary of the Google Ads because their robotic-crawler nature meant an alternative medicine I didn't believe in or endorse could pop up. That happened once in the very remote past with Blogspot ads. An ad for an herbal remedy that claimed to prevent smallpox ran across the top of the blog for several days before I managed to get rid of it. Didn't want that to happen again.
But, beginning today, in a mutual experiment in medical blog advertising, a button for the medical software company AdvancedMD appears to the right. And unlike the herbal smallpox preventive, they're legitimate.
