Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
This experiment may have more learning potential than I had origionally thought. So far I've learned something about scraper sites, and several other things that I probably never would have came across without participating in the experiment and monitoring this thread.
This was a VERY good idea humblebeginnings. It may be something that we check back on to see what's been happening with fideladeloopiedoo for quite a while. The web is a very complex and dynamic place to do business. ANYTHING we can find to help us figure it out can only benifit us in the long run.
The fideladeloopiedoo experiment continues. :)

If yes, that's very tacky and begs the question about how to keep him/her from profiting?
If no, it begs the more interesting question to me of how do personages of such fecal ilk identify items such as this to grab? Are they data mining or spidering for previously unused terms - matching them against a dictionary? And ... is all that effort worth the ROI of an ad site or directory?
It's actually a very, very, illuminating turn on this experiment.
They have put the word into the title of their page at the end.
The site doesn't look to generate much traffic, but looking at the sitemeter stats at the bottom, and viewing their referrals, it appears they are receiving the majority of their traffic as of late due to fideladeloopiedoo.
It does all have a serious purpose -insofar that it demonstrates that you cannot actually run an experiment in isolation ... as soon as people start bidding for something the value goes up ....I just latched on to it, went out and bought something that was available -just as anyone could go out and buy slartivartfast .....but let's not start all over again!
Several posts from this thread have been removed which discuss external sites and self promotion.
Please don't drop links and domain names.
It's acceptible to discuss an experiment as it pertains to AdWords and the AdWords Charter [webmasterworld.com].
The page in question that you will see is BLATANTLY violating the TOS, with nearly 1,000 copies of THIS THEAD.
This has to be the boldest display of dumbassery I've ever seen... setting yourself up for destruction. The SEO forums you moron?! Let the reporting begin.
Geeee, I wonder why Google's index is so large.....
I would be willing to make a friendly wager that at minimum, 40% of Google's index is scraper or made for adsense related.
This scraper trend has to be pissing Y and MSN off - G is making it harder for them to keep their SERPS clean as Google has created a reason for people to create spammy sites - and it rewards them for it.
Kind of reminds me of the Manhattan Project, in which the scientists were worried that an atomic explosion might just grow and continue to explode, eradicating the entire planet if not the universe.
That's what's happening with this term now. It is expanding exponentially and may become so large that it will destroy the internet. Or, better yet, just Google!
Oh, happy days!
anyways for that one the term fideladeloopiedoo has a cpc of .10/click
