Summary:

Flickr is making money off Google AdSense even though it is a Yahoo company. There are Adsense text ads appearing on your photo albums etc. Is this coopetition they always talk about? Making your enemy pay your bills – priceless!

  1. Excuse me? They are giving market share for Google with that. How can you flip this and say that Flickr/Yahoo are the ones somehow making a profit on top of Google?

    Google takes a good share of that ad revenue…

  2. I second that. Google possibly make a larger profit than that of Flickr (Yahoo). Yahoo supports Google financially. Now isn’t that adorable?

  3. Actually, I think the Google ads only show up on non-pro accounts.

    I don’t see any on my photo pages.

  4. No google adsense ads on pro accounts that I can see. I’ve got none on mine.

    And, given the amount of traffic flickr has and how generous they are with free accounts, I don’t have a problem with them putting text ads on free accounts. If they put them on my pro account that I paid for, then we’ll have a problem.

  5. well, i don’t have a pro account, so perhaps that is why. i think it is still ironic that is the case, even though Yahoo has its own overture service which does precisely that.

  6. Nuovo scoop: Flickr passa agli annunci di Yahoo!

    English version follows. Probabilmente non frega niente a nessuno. Ad ogni modo sembra che da oggi Flickr supporti gli annunci di Yahoo! e non più quelli di Google (come da foto). Om Malik ironizzava proprio su questo giusto il 19…
