Promoting Google Referral Products Using AdWords & Google Pages

A Cre8asite Forums thread spots something I have never seen before. A search on google earth in Google brings up an AdWords ad in the sponsored results for someone using the Google AdSense Referral Program to make money. But the twist is that they are using Google Pages so that it appears that this is the official Google site.

google earth - Google Search (20070223)

As you can see from the screen capture above, the URL in the sponsored result is from Google.Earth.GooglePages.com/Earth. The ad title and ad copy seems legit, and I think this is fine with the Google terms of service, but I may be wrong.

I am sure the ad has a nice click through rate and a high quality score. Nice search marketing on this guy's part. Just curious how legit it is...
