Breaking news: Google Maps advertising algorithm slightly off

The always entertaining quest to find horrendous 1995-era websites for local Mission joints yielded some surprising results when clicking on Mission Hill Saloon. Instead of a link to their website (which presumably doesn’t exist) I was offered an amazing deal at Mission Hills Dongguan, a mere 10,000 km away!

  1. Google really hit a home run here. The new algorithm removes my ads then reposts them in other areas (far away) then removes them again. Eventually they seem to show up in the areas I target then disappear and I have to repost. I am also using Ad words. Think I may look for an alternative.
