Hmmmm...ok then. Very odd. I couldn't see for myself (ad-free front page :D). The Goooooooogle & G6 made me assume it was a PS job...I'll shut up now :o

No... Goooooogle. There are only six of the 'o's in the targeted ads.

Don't spread the FUD! :p

The ad that put a hair up my nose is the "Mac Notebooks" Ad from Futureshop.ca (probably Canadians only see this one). The store doesn't carry Apples at all, just a bunch of Compaq etc. Wintel.

They are a discount electronic big box (like Best Buy or Circuit City - in fact Best Buy just bought Future Shop).

But... I noticed that by clicking on the Gooooogle link you can send Google feedback. So now I can vent on Google.

Like, it does matter. To those of us who have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder it does. And the fact that I can't miss a chance to nudge edesignuk in the ribs a bit....

Beh. It's just a sleazy affiliate marketer with a clone of Apple's Store page that redirects you to Apple Store UK. "G5 powerbook and G6"... not only that they are keyword spamming Google with other companies' trademarks. another spamming, cheating SOTE.

When Advertisers Pay by the Look, Fraud Artists See Their Chance

To Texas-based Auctions Expert International LLC, it was an easy way to make money on the Internet. Sign up with Google, which functions as a kind of online ad agency, and agree to let the online giant place ads on your Web site. Then, every time someone clicks on one of the ads, the advertiser pays a fee, and Google shares that fee with Auctions Expert.

The problem, according to a lawsuit filed last year by Google, is that Auctions Expert began clicking on the ads itself, artificially inflating the number of clicks and driving up the bills sent to advertisers.

Auctions Expert allegedly recruited as many as 50 people to click on online advertising, generating about $50,000 in ad revenue. The self-clicking was "worthless to advertisers, but generated significant and unjust revenue for defendants," the Google lawsuit said.

Auctions Expert, Google claims, appeared to be created solely to profit from manipulating the Internet ad process. A person answering the phone at the home of Sergio Marfin, an Auctions Expert executive named in the Google lawsuit, said Marfin was unavailable for comment.
