LocalAdLink

This is a post I made to alt.internet.search-engines on March 1, 2009. I am adding it here for posterity, because I think this LocalAdLink thing is a bunch of malarkey at best and a Ponzi scheme at worst.

Anyone reading this, and would like to have Organic search results should realize that LocalAdLink will never be able to do this, unless they change the scripts on their servers (and I doubt that is going to happen). Contact me for more information.

I feel like I am at the edge of the rabbit hole. A good friend
introduced me to something called LocalAdLink. It's an MLM thing, and
you sign people up with the expectation that they will have a Sponsored
result in Google (and according to the web site, a lot of other se's as
well). You pay for a certain amount of zipcodes and keywords, and since
Google uses Geotracking, your ad should come up if the searcher is using
your keywords, and his IP address maps to one of the zipcodes you
bought.

Now, the link clearly showed it was going to LocalAdLink, but as a
searcher, you would want to see the product/service you were looking
for, not LocalAdLink with a tiny link to the website that had bought the
ad.

The hype was to go out and sell it before March 1, 2009, before the
prices went up. Oddly enough, they sent out an email to all the
affiliates saying that they were doing some major work on their servers,
so their site was partially down yesterday (2 days before the cutoff).

Interestingly, this LocalAdLink thing was working up until yesterday
afternoon, and tonight, it seems that Google must have caught on to what
was happening, because all the sponsored links going to LocalAdLink are
gone.

Moral of the story – don't mess with Mother Nature, and don't mess with
Google.
