MSN Replies to Accusations of Penalizing Sites with Google AdSense

Jun 30, 2006 • 7:55 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Bing Search

Typically a search engine representative would not reply to a thread where a Webmaster accuses them of penalizing a site for using a competitors service. In a WebmasterWorld thread, a member said that his site is suffering in MSN Search due to placing Google AdSense on the pages.

The WebmasterWorld members reply to the thread creator that his accusations are unfounded and wrong. But then we have a shocker, at least in my opinion, MSNdude (official MSN representative), replied to the thread!

That's certainly not by design. I suspect something else is wrong with your site to cause this. However, we'd like to check this one out -- just in case -- because if it really is our bug, it's very serious and we'd want to fix it immediately.

This is just not typical.

I have had personal help from MSNDUDE in the past with a website problem and he didn't give me the kind of lies I get from Google everytime they open their mouths, I even got an apology from him. I wish the other search engines would demote adsense sites, Google adsense is the number one reason to create SPAM. Does anyone remeber what it was like before Adsense ? Or are you all to busy making money from it ?
