    Well done Google! Presumably they will be donating all the money they have made from these adverts to charity.

    The next step for Google is to clear up all the hacked and redirected payday loan organic listings. Every week I check them and every week there are a whole bunch of new spammy loan websites cropping up in the organic listings..

    I think payday loads should just be removed full stop! They get people in debit by charging extremely ridiculous interest rates! I would never get one and the only reason I would ever click a payday related ad would be to cost the company money for a little payback to all those that have lost money to them!

    Plus these type of companies have harassed me in the past for loads I supposedly had from them, but it wasn’t me lol and I know other people how have had the same problem!

    20 year old me would agree, but I was already in debt and angry. Older me thinks they should be allowed to exist but provide a positive benefit to your credit score once paid off so that eventually you won’t need them.

    Nice one Dave. Here’s hoping that they do :)

    These payday and fast-loan sites really pray on people when they are down and out – they should be banned totally. Some charge 50% interest!

    Google either can’t because their algorithm is inherently manipulatable – or chooses not to because they know the (slightly more) legitimate players will be forced to pay for AdWords.

    MSM simply did not comply with http://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/2464998?hl=en. Even though lenders can be fully compliant with the OFT, Google’s guidelines are slightly different and include additional information on the page.

    But Google still has to clean up the organic results first !
