Google Taking Adsense Global

Google just added five more languages to its Adsense program. That brings the total number of languages supported to 18. Adsense allows content publishers to earn additional revenues by inserting context-sensitive Adwords into their Web pages. While I can’t help thinkng that Adwords are little more than a passing fad, I have to give credit to Google for making the most of them.

The languages supported are as follows:

Chinese (simplified)
Danish
Dutch
English
Finnish
French
German
Italian
Japanese
Korean
Norwegian
Polish
Portuguese
Spanish
Swedish
Turkish

I believe that publishers must be manually approved before they can begin using Adwords, which is probably why Google is taking longer to expand this program. But there is money in doing so — the more publisher sites that Google can offer advertisers, the more money it can make.
