    Total MFA site I'm Sick of them

    Look at this (Don't click on any ads though its not fair on the adwords users that have to pay, even if it will get this site banned), maybe if a few of us email G we can get this site banned and they will start to really take notice of this issue of MFA's sites with no content whatsoever.

    Oh, and they were part of Adwords showing on my website.

    Yes it uses a domain parking service. What's bothering you about it? I agree it's a useless site, but it's legit.

    What bothers me is that they keep advertising using Adwords, so my users get a bad experience when they click because instead of getting 'baby names' as advertised they get ads and more ads and more ads (each time they click on the lefthand menu of this website Baby Girls Names they get absolutley no content whatsoever but just more ads).
    Why am I the only one that thinks this is crap???
    I think I'm in the wrong forum.

    Can't you just put that site in the competitive Ad Filter?

    Considering that there aren't any AdSense ads on the page, I fail to see why Google would be upset with the page.

    Yes I have put them in my filter.

    The point is that they use Adwords at 0.01 per click and because this is the Adsense forum I'm just voicing my opinion that Im sick of MFA sites.

    I think its wonderful for all you guys that think its a fine site, I hope they show lots of other ads on your websites www.tools-webmasters-gaming-blah!

    Except that it isn't a "Made for Adsense Site". They have absolutely no adsense on their site.... so google has no power to stop showing ads on their site..

    I completely understand your frustration, though. It's really a matter of people performing PPC Arbitrage.

    If they show up in your AdSense ads, it'd because they have bid the most. The alternative is that you don't get any income at all. Therefore, I fail to see the big issue.

    Yup, it's a YPN/Overture feed that they're using, not Google.

    Yeah that kind of stuff does stink, but theres not a whole lot you or anyone else can do about it. Filter the ads and move on.

    You're definately not the only one who thinks it's "crap". Most webmasters do! But the problem is - they'll get what's coming... it shouldn't ruin your day, just filter out the URL and move on or those ads will only continue to irk you later. Yahoo will definately do their part...

    How do you figure? Do you think some internet pixie is going to fly around the net and curse this kind of ****? Why get worked up about it? It sucks but its all part of the game. Who knows one of the sites you are *****ing about may be one of mine or his or hers!

    Since you're obviously directing your message to me - use proper english and I will reply back, knowing what you're talking about. But with filtered out, obvious profanity - I have no clue what you're talking about. Take a deep breath and try again

    Thanks Clenard,

    That person above you seems to be compatable with his name lol.
    I am not a web crusader just a webmaster with a very large filter, who spends quality time adding more domains to it that could be used adding more content to my website.

    Any webmaster with a quality site would rather a user only leave their site for another relevant website. I would rather keep a user in my site than lose them for $0.01 and a bad experience because the Advertisement that represented them was far from the truth.
    Anyway it doesn't matter, sorry everyone with MFA and MFY websites I didn't mean to offend.
