    Google conquered by "meanwhile"?

    On my antivirus/antispyware website, 80% of Adsense ads are "Free Antivirus", "Antivirus Free Download"... ads bought by .info domanis redirected to meanwhiledotcom. I'm seeing "meanwhile" ads almost everywhere, on all kind of websites... and i'm wondering why Google makes the game of these guys?

    They don't care about their advertisers&publishers - as an advertiser is almost impossible to compete against "Free Antivirus" ads and as a publisher you get almost nothing from MFAs?

    I'm afraid it's impossible, they have hundreds (maybe thousands) of domain names. "Meanwhile" website is in the first 500 websites (according to alexa) with virtually no content... i think they run a huge business with the help of Google

    I've actually seen it from things that have nothing to do with antivirus stuff. I was on some random music site, clicked and ad and ended up there as well. Couple days later was on a site for something totally different, clicked an ad, went there again.
