Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
For example, I visited <snip> (not my site - I found it through its AdWord while searching on Google). The site says "To begin, choose a good patent attorney or a good patent firm to represent your idea or invention:", immediately after which are AdSense ads. The FAQ page says "You can see a list of patent attorneys displayed above, anxious and willing to help you." (Displayed this above are the AdSense ads.)

[edit reason] No URL specifics please! [/edit]
Your URL will be removed shortly by a mod, as URLs are not allowed to be posted on these fourms.
The site provides little or no information, and does encourage people to click based upon the "to begin, choose a patent lawyer,"
I would be upset if I was a lawyer publishing adwords and that was the site that my ads were on
On the left hand side, the google ad. hovers and when you scroll down, the advert moves down with the browser. It is quite a shocking abuse I think. What's more, there is the following text in the text body.
We recommend that you investigate 3 to 4
<--------- credit card processing companies before
<---------- deciding on which one is right for you.
the arrows point to the adsense ad.
Now tell me that isn't against the TOS.
( Will be contacting Google with a proposed paragraph anyway ).
