@buckworks, true enough. But the money that goes to my company is less money that could go into adsense. They are both methods of online promotion for websites. That much they have in common.
@netmeg, you would be right, IF they were not a monopoly with substantial market power. This explains it well: [ftc.gov...]
Basically my reasoning is this... if one company becomes the ONLY place that sells text ads, then they are basically forced to allow any legal advertisements to run, because they are not allowed to determine who fails and who succeeds in society basically.
My legal wording is horrendous, I am aware... but am I entirely baseless on this?
I understand that most companies are not forced to do business with anybody... but if Google refuses to allow my legal website into their search advertisements... tell me, how else am I supposed to reach the 70% of the internet that visits Google every day?
I should have the same advantage as anybody else online, should I not?
Judging by the ad results for "buy backlinks" term on Google however, I am nearly positive they have a policy of some sort in place to stop my type of business. Because there are 1,000+ competitors of mine and I refuse to believe none of them have the money for ad dollars.
