    SAS Abestweb Ad
    So, I recently typed in "Abestweb" into Google. A SAS ad came up, for Abestweb.com, offering "Free Shipping and Handling".

    What is that about?

    Edit:

    Here is the exact ad text:

    "Great Deals Free S&H
    & More"

    Is ABW branching out?

    I don't see that particular one, but I do see one that says "Michigan" underneath the Display URL.
    Maybe the one I see is a geo-targeted ad? I would think it has to be, since there doesn't seem to be a way to intentionally put a message below the Display URL... (and having "Michigan" show there is probably some kind of glitch, since it makes no real sense to show it).

    "Maybe the one I see is a geo-targeted ad?"

    Yep, I saw my state under one of the ads.

    Oh, I see it now:

    Great Deals Free S&H
    & More
    ABestWeb.com

    Looks like the program Abestweb has thru SAS. Probably some template ad text they used in their other PPC ads

    Same affiliate also has this one, which is better:

    Yeah, Leader, that would be a geo-targeted ad. Probably affiliates (since there is an ABW affiliate program) bidding on the name?

    The S&H one was probably some generic ad targeting anything and everything, which you'll see plenty from eBay (and/or it's affiliates), which is quite lame in my opinion:

    It is geo-targeted, a SAS link that goes to ABW.

    Brian, I've also PM'd you that link, in case you're interested...

    Finally came up for me. Pretty bad geo-targeting by Google, considering I'm in Alabama.

    I'm curious to know exactly what it is the affiliate thinks H is shipping? I seem to recall anything I got from here being free, so the margins are thin on that KW...
