Anyone else tired of seeing Santorum ads here?

I say we click through on them so he has to pay. I figure dailypaul should get paid and Santorum should pay. Any thoughts?

I really Don't Mind Other Candidate Ads

In Fact I like it. They aren't going to get any votes here and it siphons off their money towards a pro-Ron Paul cause.

I would have a problem with an actual Anti-Paul ad.

I just became one last night and am totally loving it.

That whole middle column of ads just... *poof* ...disappears.
Even if you can only afford the $5 a month option, you're still helping to keep the site running in a more direct way. And as a bonus, you get faster page loads, which really helps if you often read the DP from your cellphone like I do.

As a paid subscriber to the

As a paid subscriber to the daily paul I don't see any of the ads, plus the page loads much quicker! Just FYI.

I'm tired of his ugly mug, but let him waste his bucks

I'm tired of his fugly mug, but let him waste his bucks on these ads.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Yes

i am tired of seeing him any where....

Google Adwords

Google Adwords will choose those ads that are relevant to the subject matter being discussed on the page they appear on. Since the "Santorum Surge" is creating a lot of discussion here on DP, the word Santorum has increased relevance here and so Google's automated process serves up those ads. However, don't advocate fraudulent clicking because Google can shut down Michael Nystrom's Adwords account (and revenue from it) down.

This does highlight a more important point: We can own the search results for various keywords on this site. That's pretty powerful!

It's not click fraud...

Click fraud is where people are paid, or computers set up to automatically click ads repeatedly.

Clicking on links from DP and elsewhere that do not result in desired outcome is the risk of using AdWords, and they accept that when they accept the Google TOS.

Is there not a way

to block ads percevied as "competitive?"

Google has taken over our lives and if such ads can hurt our cause isn't it time Mr. Nystom to take a look at the cost/benefit ratio? Really, if Google's technology does not allow for exempting of site owner's perceived competition, they become decision makers for the site.

Always click...

I always click on any ad from anywhere that I see for Santorum or any of the others... a dollar spent on my click is a dollar thrown away.

In 2008, they learned pretty quickly that AdWords was not a good use of money... Romney doesn't seem to be making that mistake this time since he got burned by it, but the ones new to the race are making it big time.

Pfft. I love seeing him waste what little money he has

I click on them.

You'll see lots of folks ads here.. Cains were here.. Bacchman, gingrich, it's an ad service which put's it out to politics. DP doesn't have a say on what the ads are if they participate.. and you know what.. I think it's great that some of Their money is going to support this site. We're not endorsing their views they are endorsing ours and we're not giving the money back! Click their ads to see what they're about - it will cost them money per click possibly but you don't want to be closed minded ;p

He's not just here..... I just saw same ad on YouTube

I am now thoroughly convinced that he is nothing but an opportunist.

We made the blueprint, that they can copy. We execute the blueprint, that they can copy.

We have passion, that they CANNOT copy.

Rick can continue to coattail off of our success, but he can't coattail off of our passion for the Constitution, individual freedoms, this country, or Ron Paul.

I am with "tired of seeing Santorum ads here"

I think the guy looks like a weasel.

Will clicking on his ads give him more reason to continue to be here? I am not sure how all that works.

Either way, I am sooooo tired of seeing him here, buck tooth weasel badger got together and created this man... All shows in his actions.

It's not as bad as

Brilliant article that explains why we love Dr. Paul:

Nope! Love it!

Every dollar he spends here where it will have no effect is a dollar he isn't spending somewhere else where it might do something.

If I burn to many bridges I'll never get off this awful island.

Nope...

I love 'em.

Wasted impressions. He might be paying per impression... or per click-through. Clicking on them certainly won't hurt!

It could be a Trojan Horse

Everytime we click it he pays, but he also generates internet "buzz". "Buzz" is a word closely associated with "surge". The media loves to point out how well social media and trends work when it appeases them.

I say we do to Rick's ads what he does to our Constitution and our children's future........

IGNORE THEM.

I agree, no bump for him!!

Then they will say the RP people from the daily paul are defecting to Santorum!! uuugh!

Yup

they ain't that stupid. I think it's a ploy for cheap "talking points" come the next few days.

click on them

they cost his campaign probably 10 cents a click.

Actually

I use PPC ads quite a bit in my business. A CHEAP PPC ad will be about 2 bucks per click. With the political season this close right now? EASILY $10 per click. Per day you click. Each person. :-)

I was thinking the same thing

Do you think Santorum would be dumb enough to put a pay per click ad on a RP site? Well...maybe he is. I'll click through, get the DP some money.
