    Overture (nat.overture.com) has been browsing my site for over 40 minutes now.

    I have not put any bid requests for over a year tho I replenished my account regularly to keep certain bids alive.

    nat.overture.com has been browsing the pages on my sites that I have no bids for.

    Has any other overture advertiser noticed such visits from overture.com? (it is clearly a human browsing the site)

    Overture like CJ is a IdeaLabs funded company who have strong insider ties to Morpheus and other parasites.

    They might be trawling for keywords for their suggestion tool? Some of their suggestions were copied and pasted, it seems to me, from keyword lists. Remember what John from Glasgow Taxis said? He looked up 'glasgow taxis' and found one result (I think the 3rd) was just his keyword list.

    There will be a technical reason the whole list was posted as one keyword. I'd check that out but I have to go somewhere now.

    I think Overture might - rather than use what the searchers are searching for, also want to use what webmasters *think* they are searching for to pad out their list. There have certainly been some statistical anomalies from that direction for a while.

    They are crooks, in bed with other crooks. Well and truly darksided, and for some time.

    Mike,

    Can you be more specific as to the Idealab insider ties to Morpheus.

    I'd appreciate your thoughts and insights.
