A Glance At AdSense’s 2007

As acquaintances go, Google AdSense isn’t a particularly "auld" one – most people are likely to have more aged underwear.  Still, the Inside AdSense blog has taken a moment to remember the technology’s past year, and it was, by all appearances, a rather busy one.

Google and Thailand haven’t always had the best relationship – a certain now-you’re-banned-and-now-you’re-not episode with YouTube was, at best, odd.  But the search giant’s setting those problems aside in pursuit of growth, and is offering AdSense for search in Thai.
