    Searchportal.information
    I run a PPC campaign on one of my sites that's been seeing a lot of "referrer" action from Searchportal.information.com.

    They certainly look to be a "built for AdSense" site, but whats particularly curious is that the search term is always a brand name, and always the SAME brand name.

    Not only that, but its a two word brand name with an unusual spelling, and it's always properly spelled and capitalized.

    So I say: FOUL...

    Anyone else know of this "search engine", and do you see similar results?

    I reported these guys to ggogle about 3 days ago, but no response. They are KILLING me on my PPC campaign. Anyone have any suggestions on how to stop it aside from begging Google?

    Did a little research, and looks like these guys are a classic BHO rip off. Some info pointed to Limewire as being an assister here.

    Mods: We can pop this thread over to the parasite forum if you want...

    Well, I should have looked before, but under Tools, in AdSense, you can exclude certain sites from showing your ads... Wish me luck

    It says it's new. Anyone know how long this feature has been out?

    I just came across this thread, yes you can block certain domains from display your google ads, this feature has been there as long as I can remember.
