Made For AdSense: No

Why is a source for Google News?

They don't write their own articles. I can't tell if it's scraped or syndicated, but either way I put little value in the site. Sure there is the ability to vote and to leave comments, but the whole thing seems like a boilerplate system. There are probably thousands of sites just like this one out there.

So I'll ask the question again. Why is a source for Google News?

Once you get past the front page, you'll find the advertisements, which is a mix of Chitika and AdSense. It's a very in-your-face ad layout. I don't know why but Google encourages this sort of thing.
