Seth MacFarlane, Google Ink Deal

0817familyguy.pngHere’s something with wide ramifications for the (many) publications that rely on Google AdSense for online ad sales. Google has inked a deal to run internet videos over AdSense. The initial roster for Google’s online advertising videos: Original cartoons from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and live action shorts from That’s So Raven star Raven-Symone.

The shorts will appear in a video box that users would click on to start and would be bundled with banner advertising and video ad. Meanwhile, the choice of websites these would appear on is up to AdSense and financiers Media Rights Capital.

No word on launch date or on the terms of the deal just yet.
