Ban E-Bay from Adsense?

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by Solicitors Mortgages, Jan 8, 2005.

    dont know about you, but i am getting fed up of seeing E-Bay adverts
    everywhere..and for everything.
    examples:
    Japan - Buy it on E-Bay
    Solar Planets - For sale on E-Bay
    you know what i mean..right?
    SEMrush
    If they were $5 click then it wouldn't be so bad...as i guess they would start to limit their search terms...but to have adsense swamped with crap for only a few c's makes adsense look worse than it already is.

    Just because it doesn't show up every time doesn't mean it's not there.

    For instance, I just searched "Little Black Babies" 3 times, it appeared only once :)

    It is true (i wouldnt just post something fro the hell of it) but I suppose Dead People aren't popular in all of eBays markets. Depends which area you search from.

    ebay should buy a search engine, then they can put whatever ads they want. but google is too expensive for ebay. I found ebay ads is really annoying.

    eBay themselves don't put those ads up- its their affiliates..

    They are definately affiliates but I guarantee if eBay didn't want them displayed, they wouldn't be since it is their domain that is being shown in the ad.

    Is google going to start limiting the number of adwords ads displayed by url? I think that should help get rid of 200 ads for ebay for ecery search term out there.

    This won't help what I think the original poster is referring to. It will only stop multiple ads in a single search. It won't stop the person that targets words like dead people because they are the only affiliate targeting that word (for whatever stupid reason)

    The ad no longer comes up for me so I am guessing that it was stopped for a low clickrate after all the people checking it but not clicking on it.
