    Angry This needs to end!
    My sons told me to go to gamewinner.c0m because their friend said they could get cheat codes for PS2 games. The correct site was gamewinners.com .

    gamewinner.c0m was nothing but scraper trash and it even had a link to p0rn.

    This type of thing should be a felony. I am going to contact my congressmen on this to propose a law that anyone that squats on a kid's site domain and then offers p0rn be subject to jail time.

    I thought they arleady passed a law making that illegal?

    The problem you are going to have is that site is generated automatically, it is a sedo site for parked domains. Think of someone attackign you because of what adsense said on your page? And try as i might, i couldn't find any porn. And if it was "porn" it would just be text links to porn, same as what google or any other search engine has.

    Yes, I see it is a parked domain. It is still not right. In all the contextual ads I have had served, I have never ever had porn links/ads served with one exception and that was not even hard porn and I quickly stopped ads. The porn link is mixed in with kids cheat codes. Not a good match.

    I was following some Revenews blog links to the cybersquaters raping Adwords playas and remember seeing the top 25 URLs for childrens destination sites had over 4000 typo-squaters template adsence drain holes. Google has over 1.7 million typo squaters using their Oningo domain parking adsense hosted templates for trademark & URL exploiters. Google Porn PPCSE also populates these, and many are used as targets for the zombie Bots to force click adwords for hundreds of millions in phoney click traffic.

    Google knows these huge Adwhore operators and this was one reason the balked at Uncle Sam getting access to their clickstream data to fight child porn perps. Any enities, from the networks to the Supers, who have access to proprietary clickstream and conversion data automate click fraud through these channels to pad their pockets rather then rely upon legit affiliate sales.

    Not sure how i missed it. Well it is a popular search... but I would guess their algo is broken, write them a letter. I doubt someone hand selected that category.

    Just an update: The site in question has been cleaned up. Initially I contacted the parking service with no response. I then informed the legitimate website gamewinners.c0m and they then told me they would initiate legal action. The problem was then quickly resolved. I am thinking (and hoping) that this will also result in a bit more care in placing ads on other children-orientated sites by this parking service as well.
