Create your own link unit?
Possible with search function?

 3:52 pm on Sep 8, 2006 (gmt 0)

Hey Guys

Has anyone used the serach box and made their own link unit?

Can you pre-search say "blue widgets" with four other variations and then take the response string and use it as a text link?

And not use the search box.


Anybody know?

I am not sure of what you are asking, but it seems against the TOS, manipulating Google contents to create your own ad links?

Just pre-searching the words and using the http search string in the code.

Basically you are doing the search for them.

widgets blue widgets widget cases used widgets red widgets

I could even put "ads by Gooooogle" to make it look right.

It would seem to me this would be in direct violation of the part of the TOS which doesn't allow pre-filling of the search form. It seems to be important to G that the user decide what to search for completely on his own, and only view search results they personally asked for. Your idea circumvents that quite completely.

thanks guys

Oh well, thought I had something there.

You actually do, it's a great idea. I just don't think G would allow it.

But why don't you suggest it to G? A link unit in which we could specify the keywords for the actual links in the link unit would be a really neat new feature.

I agree it would be nice..heck i do the same thing with regular google searches. It would be nice to make a few bucks at the same time.

I stickyed the ASA this thread but who knows if that will do anything.

I'll make a formal suggestion directly to Google Ad Sense

Basically we want build your own link units with predefined topics by publishers. You would be required to stay within the subject matter of the page but could "hard fix" the titles and results.

See G you should have hired me as ASA2, I could make you billions more.

Thanks for the sticky, Khensu, and for everyone's input on this thread. While this isn't currently permitted, I've forwarded your comments on to our link units product team.

Keep the suggestions coming!
