Well yesterday I was seeing dating site graphics [flash?] ads on a page of mine I was checking. These ads had nothing whatsoever to do with the page topic.
When I right clicked the ad and put it into a text file guess what? Two things stood out.
a) The destination page had nothing to do with the ad, it wasn't even a dating site. Something about how to make millions on the internet.
b) Keyword used? My page title! That was something nobody on the planet using AdWords would enter for keywords except the manufacturer of that specific product.
Highly specialised esoteric terms used in electronics. How could I filter out those keywords?
I put the domain name into my filter, waited awhile and reloaded the page. Same ad, right click again and the only difference this time was a whole new destination URL! Maybe they have thousand of different URL's?
I didn't bother pursuing it any further because I am utterly convinced the AdWords programme is so full of holes that no matter what tools we have, we'll never beat these people who can apparently so easily game the system.
I thought of doing screen shots, saving the text file and complaining to AdSense.
Complain to whom, where and how? Then even if I could, with what result?
