Google Launches Useful, Curious “Ad News”
Here’s something useful for people who pay attention to search and advertising for a living: Ad News. Powered by Google News, it selectively delivers stories from news sites and blogs and is organized by topic: search, display, mobile advertising, traditional media, etc. It also contains links to selected Google blogs.

As an aside, what the heck is a “sexy local singles” ad doing on the right of a Google News search for “Yahoo.” Another question I have is why was this announced on the Inside AdSense blog vs. the Google News Blog?
The generally useful site reminds me of another curious site Google put together, Google Internet Stats.
