Typos in the News

“Google, which runs the largest ad network on the Internet, is making millions of dollars a year by filling otherwise unused Web sites with ads. In many instances, these ad-filled pages appear when users mistype an Internet address, such as ‘BistBuy.com.'” Thus starts a fascinating article in the Seattle Times.

It’s particularly interesting in light of reports in the Washington Post of a class action suite against Yahoo and others claiming fraud through ads displayed via spyware, adware, and … “typo domains”. There are a bunch of interesting related links in the blog entry at Search Engine Watch.
