Syndication is bad!

When I choose to syndicate my ads, I get a lot of hits from
the lousy searchengine updated.com.

These visitors never buy anything so it's a waste of money.

On the other hand I don't want to miss the good syndication partners.

I've complained to google. They should either block updated.com or make it possible for advertisers to choose
on which networks our ads should run.

But I only get automated responses. Does anyone have the same problem?

Automated responses?!? Where are you sending your mails to?

AdWords Support email ID is adwords-support@google.com

Its likely that the AdWords support team had misunderstood your question. Reply back with a detailed explanation.

Syndication is good! :)

not excactly autoresponse.

More like a template message. "We've read your mail, we value all feedback...." dadadada

My letter was very clear and sent to the right address.

But pliiz! Somebody else who have seen updated.com in their logs and studied the conversion rate?

you know, vibgyor79... you are always defending adwords and are the first to get all ruffled when someone says something not quite nice about them.

Admit it, you are googleguy in disguise, right? :p

Yeeesh!

Anyway Johannes, I checked all my website stats and I haven't received a single click from Updated.com. Are you in a very competitive business(casinos, webhosting etc) with high keyword CPC?
