    These lil biggers sites

    Ok, I know that these type of sites are running adwords on them, even though they dont show the google link. I was woundering if anyone has ever made one and how do you make them???

    The site is here http://www.halfbaked.com/

    I know that they are running adwords on them because they had a link to one of my companys on there.... can anyone explain to me whats going on? lol

    You mean they are running adsense on it? They are doing some internal redirects there so it is hard to see where the links are going. But if it is adsense, they must be breaking the TOS?? Looks suspicious...

    I don't think that site is running AdSense because I couldn't find any evidence of it in the source code.

    FYI- Huge, everyday sites, like PCMag.com and NYTimes.com have something called "Premium AdSense," meaning they get custom ad formats and even their own account manager. They can agree with AdSense to have ad sizes that do not show "Ads by Google" and other different ways of modifiying normal publisher ad formats.

    That's not adsense, its just a small custom script pulling results from a PPC search engine affiliate program like revenuepilot or searchfeed.

    I don't know why you think HalfBaked.com is running Google ads. Those links could be coming from just about anywhere but Adsense.

    It is adsense, you see the links go to pagead2.googlesyndication.com or whatever when you click them. They are AdSense for Domains, but you need lots of impressions to be allowed to show them.
