    Letting Users Rate Adwords Ads
    See a thread going over at WMW and a screenshot here:

    Might be just a test but bad idea. I can see lots of abuse with this.

    If I see a bad ad, I report it, but yes many would abuse it.

    YPN is "chock full of" bad ads BTW.

    Yep, for sure. If you allow people to consciously be judges of things, then you need to qualify them as worthy in some way first or else what is the point.

    Exactly donuts, now there will be another level of "fraud", they will not only have to police click fraud but rating fraud as well... ugh. I think this goes further to google's real core weakness - anything that a human should do.

    I am not so much worried about fraud as I am of stupid searchers.

    Different ads work for diffent people. Plus, many people may say they want one thing but what gets them to buy is completly another.

    For example, ask a general population if they want p0rn on the internet. I would guess that 80%, if asked would say no, be we all know what word is in the top 10 most searched for.
