Ads by Google / Anúncios Google

    Today Adsense ads on all of my websites are showing two lines from Google instead of one... Now I see:

    Ads by Google
    Anúncios Google

    You can see an example in the attached file.

    It's a little annoying... And when you click on that links you will see a page that is translated, but still has snippets of english, not everything in portuguese.

    First was Anúncios Gooooooogle, now this... :( Why don't they stick to the normal one? Just Anúncios Google or Ads by Google depending on your geo location...

    It looks like they are experimenting with the Geotargeting of that text now..

    I've recently started to see the text in Danish on one of my sites (an English site by the way), and I'm surfing from Norway..
    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=8389

    I mailed them about it, and they (finally) told me that they were experimenting with geotargeting the "Ads by Gooooogle" text on some pages/sites.
    As far as I've experienced myself, the text have only been geotargeted to the language of the specific page before (it is correct on a Norwegian site I run), and they are starting to geotarget it towards the location of the surfers now.
    But it doesn't seem to work 100% yet...

    Looked at http://www.directorypt.com/ from UK, and I see the bi-lingual titling (Ads by Gooooooooogle Anúncios Google), but on the home page 2 ads in Portuguese which don't seem relevant to someone browsing from UK, and 2 in English which do seem relevant.

    Regards,

    Noel

    So is it beeing geo-targeted via the language of the website instead of the user? I don't mind, but there is no use in two lines saying the same, but in different languages.
