Google opens AdSense up to ad networks

AdSense publishers received some potentially good news the other day: Google is opening up AdSense to third party ad networks.

The move, which will enable these ad networks to compete with AdWords advertisers for available AdSense inventory, is clearly designed to boost Google's revenue from the AdSense program.

Google believes that "more competition [will translate] into better ads and increased revenue in the long run". Because Google shares revenue with AdSense publishers, any gains seen by Google should also benefit publishers.
