so here is how it goes:
Got an issue with someone who is advertising against my clients site on adwords.
Well, this time more than normal. :)
Seems that he is advertising for "name" and so comes up on "Company Name".
If you then click on his/her advert, you go get one of three results. It seems they have set up 3 adverts in adwords, (which naturally rotate) and 3 different web sites can be shown.
On closer inspection with dear Sammmy Spade, it seems this page then redirects to:
HTTP/1.1 302 Moved
Where variable domain.com is one of the three domains bidding on Overture for this phrase.
so to recap, we go from:
1 www.google.com to
2 www.advertiserssite.tld to
3 www.overture.com to
4 www.variabledomain.tld(my site in 1/3 of instances)
I am waiting for Overture to confirm I am paying for clicks from Google.
But nothing yet from Google.
Anyone any experience of this?
My clients getting hot under the collar, sending me his lawyers telephone number, but before I do that, I want to be clear of the whys and hows.
I assume "name" is cheaper on Google than overture. ....But who gets paid :)
