When I saw “Make Money Blog” I immediately thought it was an ad for one of those blogs about how to make money online like Kumiko’s Cash Quest or JohnChow.com or even Problogger. But no, it was only an ad for Adsense itself. I understand the need – and right – for Google to advertise for Adsense within the program itself but the way that ad was titled is clearly misleading. An ad titled “Make Money blog” should be an ad for a blog about making money shouldn’t it?
The second image was taken from johnchow.com, it shows the “Make Money Blog” ad by Google and a similar one saying “Make Money With Your Blog”. Why didn’t Google title its ad “Make Money With Your Blog”? Wouldn’t that have reflected better what is being advertised?
