Google AdWords Abuse

I came across this video on Stephen’s blog, who came across it on Tyler’s blog, who came across it on YouTube, so now it’s on my blog. There has been a recent explosion in abuse of AdWords, Google’s PPC (pay per click) advertising platform. It is apparent that the techniques do not follow Google’s own clear guidelines. Unfortunately, users and legitimate advertisers pay the price, while Google and the unscrupulous advertisers profit.

In addition to being an AdSense publisher I am also an AdWords advertiser and practices like those shown in the above video is one of the big reason I place my AdWords advertisements on the Google search engine only. Google needs to clean up this crap before it gets out of hand.
