Google does evil. Again…

If you've ever managed an AdWords campaign and inevitably became a SEO/SEM/WebMetrics junkie (like me), then I'm sure you bumped into this google "cool feature":

Googlebot indexes AdSense content.

Now, is that stupid, or what?!

I've noticed this as soon as I started off the AdWords campaign for ActiveXLS.com

Less than one week had passed since I opted for Content network and a quick search for "ActiveXLS" returned more than 100k results… Something was really fishy. And, since wherever there's a breach in the system, someone will exploit it, check out this quick case study I did today:

1. googled "ActiveXLS"

2. went to page 11 or smt (but I expect to find them in the first 2 SERPs in a few days)

3. stumbled upon this "organic" result: http://xn--kulr-7qa.com/?i=r&t=excel%20component

4. found my ad on the bogus page (Don't click it! it costs, you know…)

5. got stunned and started writing this post
