If it's true, that an adsense account can get suspended for bogus clicks, how is it that the 3rd tier search engines Continue to get away with it?
Wouldn't all the ptr clicks they get, which clearly come from mostly the same 'supporters', over and over again, be considered 'invalid'?
I would think the problem is pretty substantial, as the clicker, has Only to do One Click, if they click on the adsense, at the top of the portal page, whereas, if they Search, it becomes a Two-Stage process, wherein they First have to click a keyword on the directory, and Then click Again, on one of your results.
So it's much Faster and Easier for them to just click your adsence. One would Think, that's Why the adsence is There?.
But Month after month after month, thousands and hundreds of thousands of ptr page views Later, the adsence is Still Grinding away up there, on the 50 odd 3rd tiers sustaining ptr in any given month.
I can See, and Have, lol, the 2nd tier supporting the ptr biz, but never thought Google would stoop so low, apparently, I was Wrong.
I have no idea how many million page views are generated each month in front of ptr clickers, via Paid Links, leading to 3rd tier search engine portal pages, complete with google adsence right at the top, but can Assure you, the figure is Absolutely Staggering.
'' Quality Contextual Advertising '' Come Now! How in Dear GODS Name, do you Contextualize a portal page, Consisting of a Zillion Keywords/Keyword Phrases, varying with the Bids you guys/gals Place on them, Most, look for the Best Paying, in case the clicker misses the adsence, and does a search Instead.
Really makes me kind of sleepy, think I'll call it a Day.
for what it's Not worth, you're no safer with bidvertiser.
