Ads can be irritating, especially if you're a frequent user of the samee site and end up having to watch the same promos over and over again. Well Google has a solution. Sort of.
Google Contributor is a new initiativeby the company which allows users to pay a monthly fee (as low as a dollar) which will be assigned by Google to select sites as you visit them. In return for your small donation, you might see less ads or even a personal thank you message on the site.
With the massive traffic needed to secure any kind of revenue on the internet, this kind of system might well be a glimpse at the future of the internet - with more subscription based services or content hidden behind paywalls. It's only a matter of time before other ways to monetise the internet are sought, and Google will be at the forefront of any of those changes.
