Gator Eating up Google Adwords Money that yellow underline click counts even though it goes elsewhere gregorio msg:1125035 7:15 pm on Jan 10, 2003 (gmt 0) I'd say I'm pretty mad. I've tested it out and found that the yellow underlines that appear on a users computer from gator scumware.
I was upset enough when it took users to my site, BUT NOW...
When a google user clicks a yellow underlined keyword in my google adwords box it costs me money (because google counts it) even though the link goes to yellow underlined site.
I'm sure it's not a huge problem, but annoying and costly none the less.

I'd say, if you have proof of it, I would call Google right away about it. Such things have a way of really making people like us mad. GoogleGuy msg:1125037 1:25 am on Jan 28, 2003 (gmt 0)
Hey Gregario, you could email us but I'm not positive I'd get it. Can you fill out a spam report and mention your nick, plus the keyword phrase or ad that's being targeted? I'll ask someone to verify what program is doing this.
