Shopping.com steals my traffic!!!!
A number of members of my educational service - www.time4learning.com - have recently commented that they wanted to find my site but were instead taken to Shopping.com - an Ebay site.
Apparently, these are the types of users that start everyday by typing their destination into a search engine and then clicking on some of the searches that come up (obviously, they should bookmark time4learning.com's member login page or at least type the url directly into the address bar but thats a story for another day).
It seems that shopping.com uses my name - time4learning - in the title bar of their google ads for themselves!!! I'm very flattered.
Actually, shopping.com probably has some clever algorithm that finds searches where they can post their advertisement for a nickel or less and which sticks the searched keyphrase into the title. All the same, I don't like shopping.com taking my traffic this way. I'm going to contact them to see if I can get off the list. I wonder if its possible.
Any experience out there?
