Google AdWords Displaying Child Prostitution Ads

Conduct a search on this inappropriate keyword phrase at Google and you will notice an ad that reads;

adwords-illegal-ads.gif

This is obviously a misguided use of Dynamic Keyword Insertion, but you would have thought certain phrases together would trigger some flag at Google. Plus, these ads are totally against Google's Editorial Guidelines.

The search is more shocking over at Google Italy since it currently appears in the top AdWords spot.

I hope this ad is removed soon. Forum discussion at Search Engine Watch Forums.
