Adsense Spam Scam Exposed! Photo Editorial
Ever see those adsense ads promising Adsense ready websites with plenty of content? I hate Adsense spam scams too, so I'm flaming out an Adsense spam website that looks to me it was founded on the idea that a sucker is born every day! This is a photo editorial.

The irony of this all is that these Adsense spam professionals advertise through Adwords, Adsense's twin where people buy Ads that display on the Adsense network! Of course, Google doesn't reward these websites with rankings, so they don't mind letting the ads continue, but I think it would be great if they just stopped these ads in the first place, since they only exist to exploit the uninformed.

I came to the Adsense spam kings through Gmail. Here's the ad in my gmail account, and again on Google:

Google Adsense scam advertisement on Adwords

So, of course, I don't hesitate to have the Adsense scammers pay Google for my click, and I look into the scam. Here's what I find after clicking through the Adwords display to understand what's being sold:

Adsense duplicate content product value packs spamThe value pack links to a broken internal link, which helps indicate this is a sketchy site. Look at where it was supposed to direct me to (highlighted).

When I clicked the value pack (read: duplicate content) spam link, I found this lovely, rather familiar page:

Adsense scammers broken link bad neighbourhoodAny website can have a broken link, you'll tell me, even reputable ones. That's true. But broken links are an indicator of a "bad neighbourhood," (look at the quality guidelines) as Google likes to call them.

Here's the kicker though, which tells you that what you're buying isn't unique content, but rather duplicate content that Google and other search engines will ignore. Duplicate content, you'll recall doesn't get indexed and may even lead to having your site penalized. It's counter-productive to SEO. The SEO would really suffer if the site is entirely composed of duplicate content, as with this Adsense spam scam. This is the equivalent of splogging, which Google (and other search engines) hate. I think some people reading this might enjoy clicking these losers' ads to make their Adwords bill go up (you pay per click). I'm not advocating it per say, but it might be fun for people with a little free time to show these kids who the real suckers are...
