Would you click on this Google ad?    (monday 7 may 2007)      Didier Stevens blog
 


No? Sure? Because 409 persons did!

How do I know? Because I’ve been running this Google Adwords campaign for 6 months now.

I designed my ad to make it suspect, but even then it was accepted by Google without problem and I got no complaints to date. And many users clicked on it. Now you may think that they were all stupid Windows users, but there is no way to know what motivated them to click on my ad. I did not submit them to an IQ-test

There are many 'dead' curious cats about. Some people (cats) just can't help themselves.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if there were lots of visitors.
