Google AdWords Allows Blackhat SEO Ads

A WebmasterWorld member is surprised Google is allowing ads with the titles "Blackhat SEO" to show up in AdWords ads for searches on seo.

Here is a screen capture I took yesterday, but it is still showing up today.

Blackhat SEO Ads on Google

The member asked if there is something that can be done. One member replied that you can notify Google about this at this feedback form.

However, senior member, pageoneresults, response might be the most accurate:

Heh! Good luck. Google makes some good money from those ads and there are quite a few of them. That may end up being a full time position for ya, the reporting that is. ;)

Look to the left here and there are links for text link brokers. Another service quite possibly not in everyone's best interest but... "man's gotta' eat!". In the case of Google there are less mouths to feed than last quarter.
