back to article 'Why not try nude female midgets?' says Microsoft Adcenter

Microsoft Adcenter helpfully sent me a link to lists of low-cost keywords I could advertise on, categorised by sector, to “unlock new customers”. I had a quick look through the ’sport and rec’ list. Here is a small sample: Adcenter suggests "dogging swindon" Adcenter suggests "carriage dangerous goods road 1996 schedule 12 …

    Duck Porn

    Having seen a documentry on the mating habits of ducks, which includes multiple males hoping on one female and occasionally drowning her. I can only imgaine the extreme nature of their porn. best not to go there.

    Good to see my home town in the limelight

    You mean that "dogging swindon" didn't attract you Andy?

    Seems to be a strong connection with rugby. I wonder if this is a coincidence?

    Coat or Paris? Decisions, decisions. Have to toss for it.

    (A coin, you dirty minded person!)

    This explains why Micosoft's search is bobins

    If they rate the "Watford Hare Krishna Temple" as Sports_&_Recreation or Hunting, this may explain why no one bothers using their search,

    And presumably, why no one is going to give them any cash to advertise on thier rubbish system.

    Incidently, how much would Google charge for me to have the duck porn keyword? (And rest assured, I will be typing that in when I get home from work O.o)

    How does one monetize that exactly? And where's the synergy between that and the sport of Rugby?

    Duck porn

    What's the difference between kinky and perverted?

    Kinky is when you use a feather

    Perverted is when you use the whole duck

    Ooh, sue Microsoft

    so, the advertising term 'Under 16 Nude' has been 'recently used' has it? (line 4035). If it's illegal to link to pirated music and videos, it must be illegal to link to illegal child porn content.

    Of course, vulnerable children don't have the strong legal backing the likes of the MPAA have, but still.

    I can only hope that its a slip of the keyboard that changed "fuck" into Duck.

    If not, then the Internet is a far wierder place than i thought.

    auto bidding like google...

    So if MS had a similar "Use up any left overs of your ad budget on stuff you didn't ask for" system like google, could we expect that some of these might automatically get bought up (because you obviously wanted that - [we know better than you])... when did you last check that your google ads dont appear when you type in Duck Porn??

    the real questions are

    ... why did they think you'd be interested in those particular titles?

    >These keywords are actual terms recently used by your customers

    and what exactly do you do for your "customers"?

    Confession

    The search for *n b m gn mbnmncbm xbc bcv 0 vfkmjirhtfnkj nb b x bmnx bv* originated from my computer. I forgot to cover my keyboard. I was playing with my duck. The duck was running away from me. The duck ended up on the keyboard.

    I will make sure it doesn't happen anymore. I don't want my duck to accidentally type www.live.com on my keyboard again.

    I think I'll drawn my duck ( I chose the closest icon I could find )

    A search for "vn b m gn mbnmncbm xbc bcv 0 vfkmjirhtfnkj nb b x bmnx bv" on google.com now brings up this article.

    A search on live.com brings up "no results".

    I think you mean, "I think I'll *drown* my duck.

    Drawn is the past tense.

    Oh, I do searches like that all the time.

    When the PHB stress me out by pressing me to complete a project that would take a year to complete in a week.

    I get angry and frustrated, and bang on the keyboard at google's main page.

    Duck Porn ain't so bad

    I wish I could say that they were trying to spell "duck pond" or "*uck porn", but unfortunately some kinky people were most likely looking for some fresh ideas.

    Try owning a site with the name "horsebanger" in the URL and then you'll really see some unbelievable stuff. I've seen far more repulsive search queries and keywords
