    I applied as an advertiser on infolinks and no reply (2 weeks now). Should it take that long? I wanted to give them a try.

      Looks like a typical linkbait article, full of lies, misrepresentations and distortions, all with the intent of creating fake controversy just to get people like you to link to it. You bit the hook

          Hi EvcRo,

          Right about what?

          The basic premise of the article is false, Google is a publicly traded company that fully discloses their financial statements and the results are audited by Certified Public Accountants. Their financials prove the articles premise as incorrect.

          Furthermore, if you read the article you would have noticed that the author was bitter about Google banning one of his clients from the AdWords program. This is a typical response from an account stakeholder who got himself or his client banned from the program.

          But, here's a dirty little secret: You can't trust the data you see in AdWords or Google Analytics reporting. You won't see the insane volume of completely irrelevant searches even on exact match keywords. Use a third-party web stats tool, and you'll start seeing that no matter how carefully your keywords are chosen, even exact match, you are getting traffic from totally irrelevant searches.
          This is outright fraud on Google's part, but as one of my client's lawyers told me as we discussed their arbitrary and capricious account ban, "Suing Google is like trying to sue God."
          Google provides setting options and reports that allow you to see and control the keyword targeting at any level you wish. The author seems oblivious to the tools and reports that are available to him from within the account. Instead of using this as a learning moment to improve his knowledge he chose to accuse Google of malice. It's just a sad situation for the author. Nothing of value for warriors.

    Adwords is very competitive nowadays, but some people have success with it

    I don't particularly like Adwords either - nor do I agree with all their policies, many I find extremely unreasonable. However, some people are satisfied with the results they get from there. If so, more power to them! But I'd rather generate targeted traffic in other ways rather than dealing with Adwords.


    P.S. I don't know if Infolinks platform is actually active at this time is it? They just say: "Meanwhile, you can contact us and we will let you know as soon as our new and improved service is launched!"
