ok here goes:
the ads have bad grammer they say like Cd disc instead of CD discs and generally look weird i find it odd
why they advertisers not know english?
but why dont they "brush it up" before accepting?
plus isnt that off topci?
aint that illegal?!
Phone numbers in ads are a different story altogether - they often make people MORE likely to click (not phone). I would never phone a company after I had searched for their item online, I would click, see what they had to offer and maybe then phone. But I would click first, phone later.
Consider "FC UK" as one of the most controversial campaigns of the last decade when it was first introduced and now no one bats an eyelid.
I've done it deliberately myself and done correctly it can work well, it can also fail miserably!
I haven't seen any blatant examples, but if you continue to spot them it might be worthwhile to give the Adsense people a holler so they nudge their compadres to deliver quality ads.
Sad to think that in a hundred years that garbage WILL be considered grammatically correct, and most people will be no more able to read a properly constructed sentence than a passage from Shakespeare.
That's the reality of life and progression of the most expressive language ever known, however there is one very redeeming factor about the English expressionisms, and that is generally as people get older they insist more for correct grammar than whilst being young.
I still speak my own local dialect, I also speak my recognisable regional dialect with a very pronounced brogue. I also speak several other languages, one of which, Italian, I had to learn three dialects as well as the "official" Tuscanan Italian! And...(grammatically incorrect)
And, do not even ask me about German/Austrian/Swiss dialects etc.
Sure, we all hear this bastardised mid-Atlantic/American/Ozzie mish-mash of a rising diclension, which personally drives me crazy, but at the end of the day, globally we have a lot of very talented people who are driving education and understanding forwards.
At times I have thought I was incorrect with my youngest daughter however I have been proven totally unjustified!
The English language is very well and extremely alive.
Inverting an ad was one method and forming cryptic headers was another.
I'm still scratching my head as to why anyone feels that mis-spellings and poor grammar provides an incentive for customers to click on their advertisement....unless of course the customers cannot spell either?
