First sighting of ads in RSS comes to us courtesy of MacMinute’s RSS feed. It’s a text-only small footer for WWDC 2004. Not bad at all, really, especially since it’s a text-only ad which doesn’t increase bandwidth usage all that much.
If you run an ad-supported site, adding ads to the feeds is definitely something worth experimenting with, so this will probably become more prevalent as time progresses and RSS feeds move from the murky depths of the web development geeks on to the radar of sales management.
