several advertisers in an topic I am involved in have adwords ads that just go straight to parked pages.
Since those pages aren't MFA per se, there's no adsense account to ban on June 1. I was surprised to discover this. I thought those tactics were in the dustbin of history.
Will this be the next "business model" in the cross-hairs?

I think it's against TOS to send clickers to parked pages. Just take a screenshot, mark off the offenders, and tell Google.

Actually Google has a high-end program where this happens.

Check out GoDaddy Holding pages. They are all adsense ads.

You can park your domains with Google, but you have to do a lot of volume. I don't know the specifics of the program, but it does exist.

It's called domain park if you're an adsense publisher:

I checked that out, but it doesn't say anything about directing visitors to your parked page via adwords. I'll report the whole thing to Google (somehow).

It turns out MFA's weren't necessarily affected June 1st. Maybe some, but certainly not a blanket correction or clean-up. The hype was much larger than the reality.

I see no reason why Google wouldn't allow ads leading to parked pages. I'm not saying that I like them or I agree with that decision, but parked pages are no worse than any number of other landing pages allowed with AdWords.

Many parking companies like SEDO do not allow PPC traffic to parked pages. They insist on 'organic' or type in traffic.

BUT I have not been able to find this stipulation on godaddy parking programme which is a SHOCKER. Maybe because they charge a hefty fee for parking while SEDO is free?
