Can we report MFA pages?

    Hello,
    SEMrush
    this days I noticed that lots of ads on my site have very interesting domain name. So I take a look for about 20-30 of them and noticed that they all redirect to meanwhile.com
    They are all LCPC pages which gives low rates to huge numbers of adsense publishers.


    Is this legal in AdWords program? Can we report pages like this?

    I've noticed the same. Redirects to domains I have previously blocked. :mad:

    There should be no redirection to another domain allowed. If they do allow it, then give us unlimited ability to block as many domains as we want.

    You can report them but there must be too many because I have found MFA hosted at sourceforge.net instead of scripts or project.

    All of them reported and all of them still up and running with no content but dozen ads :(

    No I didn't click on ads... Right Click - Copy URL - Paste to notepad ;)

    The problem is with meanwhile.com that they use few hundreds domain names which redirects to main domain. All of their ads are spam ads, and they don't offer what they have written in their ads. It is obviously that they found the way to pay 1 cent or less per click and they use adsense as spam mechanism.

    I have reported them, and encurige others which have their ads to do the same.

    PS: Most of their ads have good domain name. So if domain name is good try to see is it redirecting to meanwhile.com. If so, filter them because they are LPPC and try to report to AdWords about spam ads.

    report such spammers at once and yes, I think it is very much illegal, as one can redirect people to banned sites

    You can report them, but they won't do anything.

    Well they answered me and asked for more informations so i hope that they will start doing something because this way of abusing AdWords program will distract people from click on ads.

    Also, I AdSense support offered me to send them some keywords which they can filter on my site.

    The domain owner has nothing to do with the ads on the page.

    Meanwhile is using a feed from either Ask, Google, or Yahoo... through most likely (99%) a parking provider.

    They are not the advertiser, nor do they have anything to do with advertisers. Just like how you place AdSense on your site, there are parking feeds provided through domain parking companies. It's a huge market and money can be made if you know what to buy.
