This is the first time that ads from an outside network will appear on Google, reports Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land, and the revenue will be split 50-50.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest.
