I was just wondering if anyone can confirm this? If it's true it doesn't make any sense.
Why ruin usability with error messages when you could just be leaving listings not targeted to the searcher out of their results completely?
Even if management made an order that dense, the guy implementing the code should have said something.
Unbelievably bad implementation of an otherwise good concept IMHO... Someone from a non-targeted country should not be shown results they cannot click on.
Denying user clicks is essentially throwing out the pretense of being a real search engine and the usability considerations that go with that.
The advertiser you clicked on has requested not to receive any visits from users outside of their market area. Click Here to return to your search results.
Note that this is a new tool and we are tweaking it as we go. Thank you for your feedback.

It would be interesting to see how many people got that message and then typed the url directly into that browser so that essentially you got the click from Kanoodle, but didn't pay for it.
at least its a step in the right direction by an engine, who only wants to deliver users to that their client expects.
cool thing would then to do some geo targeting selling of traffic which is NOT wanted.
kanoodledood, top marks in my book
