Let me guess...you must be a publisher. Remember that's a guess not an accusation.
Your statements are fine and valid for you.....that's why you run your business and I run mine. As far as I'm concerned it would be up to Google to prove they ran the ad. We proved beyond a shadow of doubt for ourselves the ad was never running in the places we investigated. Again, if this post is a waste of your time, don't read and reply. That's also your perogative but don't please don't begin to insinuate what I should or should not do in warning others.
As you know unfortunately we have to do business with PPC and we KNOW there is fraudulent PPC that we all have to live with ...for now. It's a cost of business unfortunately but what this post was about before it digressed into who should post what etc. was that their site targeting was a complete sham. The lower and lower PPC ROI we have learned to deal with by simply voting with our ad dollars. Instead of thousands of $ per day they get hundreds and it decreases month to month as we find better places to spend the money and will continue to do so. If we could live without PPC completely we would do it in a heartbeat but that is not practical..at least not yet.
What this post was about was site targeting. I reported my findings... and I'm sure black hat is going on here... my opinion...period. (which I DON'T have to prove in a court of law but only to the company partners). I'm sure these posts would make those kinds of publishers 'nervous' as we bring attention not only in forums to their misdeeds but to Google themselves about our findings.
