Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Yesterday I received two emails from them, one verifying that they were still working on the problem, and the second that it had been fixed - sure enough, the page is now showing ads.
It seems like people have been complaining about Google support lately, so I thought I would post this to show that they are really doing quite a bit, and I am quite impressed.
ok ok, i do it to check my stats
I already reported one site from which the ads have now disappeared (may be unrelated however and did not hear back from google.).
I had a problem and sent an email. Google emailed me and said they were checking on it. The problem was fixed, by my own observation. A few hours later they even emailed me and told me the problem was fixed.
Well 8 days on this site is still displaying their google ads but the topic pleading for people to click *seems* to have gone.
I'll be honest.
I pay a lot of money per month to AdWords, and I still dont give a CRAP if people ask their site to click.
WHY? BECAUSE IT CAN STILL MEAN A SALE.
If you're in the AdWords boat and complaining about this, maybe its YOUR site's problem.
If someone goes to your site, it *SHOULD* be from a targeted content ad so there should be someone interested clicking.
It really makes me angry to find whiners out there that complain to google when someone says.. "please click my ads".
One site out there cost me 720 dollars in one day because they ran a thread in their big forum "click our ads" and it turned around and made me 3200 and change, so how can I complain?
Fix your site to grab attention, and make sales and you wont have a problem.
To have a pinned topic on the forum saying "Please click the google ads, all we need is one click a day to fund the servers". Yeah... *sarcasm* I'm sure that makes a good conversion rate for advertisers */sarcasm*. To have users over the forum with the same phrase in their signatures, in an area which I run an adwords campaign for? Well it certainly made me pull out my adwords from the content targeted on publishers websites.
Your site by all accounts seems extremely impressive at converting leads, but I could not help but notice that 100% of your posts are in the adsense forum and not a single in the adwords. Please sticky me your website URL, I should very much like to see how you run such an impressive business.
Perhaps I have just uncovered your reason for launching such a protective post of inciting your users to click their own ads, one of your previous posts:
"Google booted one of my sites that was making over 495 but less than 505 a day on average... why did they boot it... well because it made too much. That seriously was the reason. The traffic was legit, the clicks were legit ..."
Hmm... very interesting.
