    sam,

    SERPs are simply Search Engine Results Pages.

    Enter your keywords into a search engine and see how you are listed

    Funwebproducts lists this url in an attempt to explain - http://help.funwebproducts.com/webmaster.html

    Looks like it's their toolbar and I don't know much about it but don't really like the sounds.

    I ran across this quote on another site -

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> It turned out that FunWebProducts (see links below) is an operation of a company called IWon. Its software - a Web application - is essentially yet another piece of adware (often mistakenly called spyware although that is arguably a related subgenre). <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    You like 300 million others have had your system hijacked by the Adwhores. You pay that traffic wank some bucks and your traffic dollars get whacked by these BHO search keyword toolbars sending bogus traffic via tricks.

    I get "FunWebProducts" hits in my log files even though the only place I'm advertising is AdWords...seems that it shows up for all FunWebbed users that come to my site regardless of how they get there.

    Or, FunWeb's padding their search results with some free listings or they're running AdSense results against Google's TOS.

    Your correct Leader as these wanks might have snuck in some Adwords listings through a backdoor partnership. Overture will allow any BHO idiot to drain their accounts and all searchbar hijackers love Findwhat -Knoodle and the lower rung PPCSE's.
