Google announced today that they have extended their Adsense for Domains to all publishers. Although, the program is being opened to all publishers, Google will continue to monitor compliance. The Adsense Blog states that the program will be rolled out to North American English-speaking markets first and then expanded into additional markets and languages in the future.
One interesting point that is made by Google in this post is that advertisers are asking for their ads to appear in this AFD program and they feel that the traffic from domains converts well. From the blog :
Advertisers also have additional opportunities to find their customers, and ads on these pages convert well. In addition, we regularly receive requests from advertisers who have found domains to be an effective way to reach their users.
