Google's Referrals Graphics Wrong: Google Pack Buttons Display Firefox Material

Jun 23, 2006 • 8:13 am | comments (1) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdSense

A WebmasterWorld thread reports that those who are displaying Google referral code (within the AdSense account) for the Google Pack product are in fact not showing Google Pack buttons and material. They report that it is showing Firefox icons, graphics and materials instead. Seems like a database slip up to me.

To test if this is still happening, I have embedded the code just below this line. It should show Google Pack material and it also should show a text ad for Google Pack right here.

Update: After posting the Google Pack creative, it is displaying Firefox creatives. So I decided to take a screen capture and time stamp it for evidence. Hopefully the above ad will change soon, to the Google Pack.

I wondered about this too but it seems that the Pack is only available to US customers. So they do some IP sniffing and try and figure out where you are and if they don't think you are in the US they show you the Firefox ad. The details on this are on the AdSense page that talks about GooglePack referrals.
