    no, those are nothing compared to the ads before. The ads before were all the search results on the first page.

    Read the thread I linked to. Google was having some issues earlier when you made a search on popular key words. "I-90 ringtones" is one I remember someone pointed out. When you made that specific search, all of the results were LONG urls (like http://www.free-I-90-ringtones-and-g...your-phone.com) that all had the same key words and led to the same page that was an advertisement. Some spammers found a way to crack Google, that now appears to be fixed.

    Yes, there were a lot of url like that (www.click-on-my-stupid-ad.com). Now it's much better to find anything.
