Obnoxious and Misleading Adsense Ads

I’ve been seeing some obnoxious Adsense ads here lately. Apparently, some company can guarantee a “Page 1 Ranking” for $49.95. No charge until you are on Page 1. Of course, I can guess that what is meant is that they will charge you $49.95 to set up an Adwords campaign where you bid until you have a page 1 ad.

Obnoxious Ad

However, this is not the same thing as a page 1 ranking. The word “ranking” indicates organic listings, not advertisement placement. I find this ad misleading, disgusting and obnoxious.

Luckily, no visitors to ever click on the Adsense ads, so the point is actually moot.
