I was wondering how long Google take to look into a policy violation.

I sent a message to them today:


Fasthosts Ltd (www.fasthosts.co.uk). Accounts include Dedicated Servers, VPS, Reseller, Web Hosting, Domains have apparently been moved to the German office of United Internet who operate under the company name 1&1 Internet (www.1and1.co.uk). It is apparent to me that United Internet owned both Fasthosts Ltd and 1&1 Internet and that the companies have been bidding on the same keywords for very similar products and prices in Google.co.uk thus infringing on Google's Double Serving Policy.

The keywords that are highlighted on exact match are [VPS], [Virtual Dedicated Servers], [Hosting], [Virtual Servers], [Web Hosting] and [Domain Names]. There are many others.

I have some screenshots and other information i can provide to you at your request.


I have various screenshots showing the blatant disregard for the Google Adwords Double Serving Policy. Let's see what happens i guess? Any experiences?
