Back when I first started displaying AdSense ads on Webfeed Central, I initially had a little bit of an integrity problem. I really didn’t like the way that there was no control over what ads showed up. After a little more thought, I came to my “Senses” and optimized the site so that the ads weren’t “in the way”. I realized what I would have been missing if I didn’t run them.
Today, I saw an ad at the site that just made me cringe, though. It wasn’t offensive, rude, or uncalled for, but the least they could have done is run it through a spell check, or something.
If you use AdWords, at all, make sure that you’re actually presenting yourself in a way that you’d like. When things are not spelled right, it just make you look like another spammer (everybody knows how “bad” they spell). If you’re paying for this stuff, make sure that your ad is actually “worth” it.
Remember the guy who decided that he was going to trade one red paperclip for a house? He started trading, a little less than ten months ago, and today the trading brings Alice Cooper to Alice, ND (about 50 miles East of where I live).
Because I have to work, I won’t be able to make it over there (I really wish I could), but this guys trading story “is” getting a little strange, especially since Alice Cooper is stalking him.
