Get The Hell Off Of My Blog, The Downside of Keyword Advertising

Get The Hell Off My Blog

The sneaky bastards from "Yes on 8" are buying "No on 8" AdWords on Laughing Squid. I’ve added them to our ad filter and I’m taking it a step further by temporarily removing Google AdSense from Laughing Squid until after the election.

And yes I know this is how AdWords works, regardless get the hell off of my blog.

UPDATE 1: It looks like Google has noticed the concern over these ads, on their AdSense blog they just did a post on how to block and review ads.

UPDATE 2: Google kind of responds to the “Yes on 8″ ad controversy on their AdSense blog.
