It’s a Great Day in the Arbitrage-Hood
Yessirreee, Google sure is doing a good job of getting rid of those arbitrage links from the ad space.
Why just the other day, I did a search for “red jelly beans toronto.” Unfortunately, it appears that the SERP’s are useless. No problem, I say. The ads look pretty good. Except for the third one down, that takes you to a gem of a “jelly bean directory.” The world needs a good jelly bean directory. And yep, the ad links on it are through Overture.
To help one of the advertisers on that site get their money back, let me recommend that you directly visit JellyBelly.com. Now those are some great jelly beans. Or you could patronize CandyDirect.com, who appear to be a real store.
In 1999 Andrew co-founded Traffick.com, an acclaimed “guide to portals” which foresaw the rise of trends such as paid search and semantic analysis.
