Snapfish’s Unethical Advertising
So here’s something that sucks. Check out what happens when you search for either Flickr or Webshots on Google and look whose advertisement shows up on the right, Snapfish. Not that there is anything wrong with buying keyword ads for a competitor’s product but these ads are *blatently* false and misleading. By looking at them I’d expect to be signing up for Flickr or Webshots as they are cleary in bold print with the text about a free photo sharing service underneath them.
It is wrong for Google to put up this kind of unethical, false and misleading advertising and it is wrong for Snapfish to advertise this way. I’ve used Snapfish before and it’s certainly no Flickr or Webshots and Google should make sure that these kinds of deceptive ads are better filtered out of their AdSense program.
