Another Jason Calacanis Fan Hits Adsense

Posted By Darren Rowse 10th of August 2005 Pro Blogging News 13

It looks like someone doesn’t like Jason Calacanis – I just spotted this Adsense ad in Google when I did a search for his name.

You’ve got to wonder what gets into people’s minds to pay for ads like these to appear.

  1. Don’t click on the link.. they try to link to a VERY bad location.

    Darren.. you might want to blur out the URL. I’m sure Google will take this down soon enough.

  2. Some of them probably don’t have a lot of mind for anything to get into – or it’s something quite malicious as Kevin may have discovered.

  3. They must have changed the page.
    Why is it a VERY bad location? It’s a very pointless location. Some might say it is funny.

  4. Yep—sure enuf- the ad is still there when searching on Jason’s name…LOL
    He does like to throw it out there on his Blog.
    But so do I- who doesn’t?? ; )

  5. Darren,

    ..when I did a search for his name….

    You already seem to be a big fan of Jason.

    I like him too for his business skills. http://labnol.blogspot.com/2005/08/business-acumen-of-jason-calacanis.html

  7. Some people have too much money and are happier doing this than something worthwhile.

    At least if I disagree with someone I’ll say so (for free) on my blog – I’m not going to take out AdWords ads to do it.

    I doubt it will hurt Jason much. Whether that page develops into anything else remains to be seen. I suppose it could be a way of generating controversy and pagerank – c’mon we all visited it right?

    But, really, what would Mister T do? :)

  8. according to the domain registration this ad was taken out by stankdawg, who’s panel at DEFCON I wrote a negative review of.

    I love the fact that people are paying for name… that’s funny. I’ll click their ad every time!

  9. […] and online guerilla warfare Can Google Adsense be use to hit somebody? Well, somebody just did. Jason Calacanis, famous for his $1M in […]

    It no longer links to dontmakemekickyourass.com it links to stankdawgs website..

  11. This is crazy… I can’t believe these sorts of ads slip through G’s filters.

  12. Interestingly enough, if you see stankdawgs presentation (which is avaiable on his website at stankdawg.com) he lists these techniques in it. I find it ironic that Jason wrote a negative review about the presentation but the very ideas and pranks mentioned are being used against him. :)

    I think Jason is eating a little crow myself. :P
