Realtor Loves South Park Real Estate

Bit of Friday humor, but I couldn't help but laugh at the AdSense ads on 4spark.com.

Some real estate broker has an ad which is just his face smiling. It probably gets a lot of curiosity clicks, but I bet that smile wears off the day he starts tracking his ad spend.

Hi,

It happens quite often that an adsense advertisement or banner is linking to a similar page or even to a page that does not exist (any more). The main question is why do these mistakes occur? Is it that people are to lazy to check or they are to “scared” to click on their own advertisement and have their account closed.

Realtors (in the main) are lazy and just don't want to get it...

I have worked with 79 and counting Realtors and believe me it's like dealing with grown up egotistical babies.

If I have a Realtor approach me and they are on an ego trip or have pet dogs on their sites - 'bye 'bye.....

Too funny, but since the dawn of time, egos could be used to ones advantage.
I would like to announce the launch of my new website...

www.bestlookingrealators.com

It will be ad supported, really alot ad supported.

Perhaps the realtor is doing site-targeted CPM with AdWords. In that case having an overly high CTR due to curiosity clicks shouldn't be harming him; right?

I've probably dealt with hundreds of real estate agents - I bet you that guy has no idea where his ad is showing up - he probably has his assistant handle all of that!

Realtors are a rough bunch to deal with - they'll do anything to get their name and face out there (though I do sympathize somewhat - they've got a ton of competition).

feedthebot - I think you could really have something with that site right there!

Thanks for sharing this Aaron, it'll get a good laugh with my coworkers. Luckily, I've moved to the tech side of the company and no longer have to deal with lazy/scared/stupid agents on a daily basis.
