    You probably wouldn’t make a fortune from adverts in Irish (or adverts in English on an Irish blog) any more than in Welsh I guess, but with targeted ads I’m sure it could generate some income. I’ve not researched it thoroughly, but AdSense doesn’t seem that flexible.

    Have you though about creating your own ads? Just for fun I made my own ads for small businesses I like using tables on Blogger, see:
    I’ts quite easy, I can send you the code.

    Also, Nic Dafis ( has created his own rotating ‘bloggerads’ for an on-line forum ( where Welsh companies pay (well some do I hope) for ads.

    This is probably the best solution for minority languages in the short term, Google will take ages to get round to it.

    You could easily setup text or graphics ads using phpads 🙂
