Must be a trend

I don’t know why, but I’m suddenly getting numerous requests to run text advertisements on my Bare Bones Guide to HTML Website. More in the past three months, in fact, than in the previous five years.

The only explanation I can come up with is that Google is causing a huge upsurge in small-scale text advertising across the Web. Not just an increase, but a tidal wave. If so, it’s a latent trend that isn’t being picked up, except as it affects Google itself.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining about the added revenue!
