Obviously yet another example of those who dilute the value of adwords by having dynamic ads running for 100,000+ words, practical or not.
unless there is some exotic animal kept as a pet that thrives on them. Yecch!
I too dislike the idea of advertisers dumping dictionaries or how ever it is they find this huge bunch of words - many times irrelevant. Could they really be making money doing this?
I fear that our better ads get lost among the garbage and in time, people will just ignore those little boxes on the right.
Many of the ads are 'come on' types where they 'give' or almost give the item away if you join a club, buy an additional product, etc.
Hard to believe that this passes muster with the reviewers. Sometimes you have to go in several pages before you learn the 'real deal' with some of these ads.
I just put in the URL for one of my "competitors" and they were much better suited to be in my spam folder than on Adwords. I picked that one at random. Who knows what the rest of them are like?
And they weren't just my "competitor". Like you said, they upload the dictionary and pop up for every search. They're everyone's competitor wasting valuable ad space.
I find it hard to see where the money is in that. I gave up about 10 screens in when there was no mention of the item searched on yet, but they couldn't verify my social security number. And why did they need that for a simple consumer purchase?
and in time, people will just ignore those little boxes on the right.
I used to periodically have to shoot an email off to Google to inquire as to whether it was really true that one could buy heroin on eBay or Yahoo Shopping
Well, one CAN buy the following on eBay:
- heroin test kits
- 1901 Egyptian opium herion poppy harvest photograph
- heroin chic duffle bag
- vintage nippon 2 luncheon egret heroin crane plates
(I think they meant "heron". Or it's a depiction of some sea birds that took a wrong turn and wound-up in a bad part of town)
