Earlier this week, Eoghan Mc Cabe posted an entry entitled “Worst Government Sites in Ireland” on his new blog. Unfortunately the web site I work on, dublin.ie, was top of the list. We had been making use of Google’s Adsense program to drive additional revenue during a slump in funding and Eoghan wondered why we were doing that. I sought permission from the office to get back to him as it’s my aim to be as open as possible with the work we do on the site. We’ve since removed the ads and revised the tagline which indicates where our funding comes from.
