Have been running ad with adwords for the last three months and having impressions and below average click through rate of 0.4 to 0.6
Last week I added a new campaign for a new product and found my CTR was rather unusually high. Most clicks were from this site http://landing.domainsponsor.com/xyzyteufofoof with a long tail of numbers and alphabet.
When I clcik to visit this site, it was neither a content nor se site. The main page looks like a directory and when you go to other pages, they just have three main google adense on it.
Anyone have any idea what this site is and is it legal in google terms to provide this sort of site. We are paying for the clicks through this site and I am not sure whether I can make any sale from it.

the site is about nothing, G (like other search engines), have made deals with large domain holders to run ads on domains where no site exists:
ask yourself how people get to these parked domains in the first place and what most people do when they come across them and you'll find the answers to all your "why" questions...

Donuts, thanks for the reply.
So does this mean that clicks from these type of sites are not going to generate sales?
Is there any way we can stop our ad to appear within these type of sites?

Eventually AOL-type partners should demand they be put in a separate category because they're the cream and parked stuff is not, affecting AOL's (and the like) income in my opinion, despite G' SP algo that's supposed to adjust for quality among pooled partners.

The syndication to domain parkers is the one where I'm confused as to any method of blocking my clients Adwords Ads. Google doesn't really explain where the "made for Adsense sites" fit into the mix. Some legit search network sites are places like AOL and Ads used to show up on Amazon product searches.
