A client phoned up yesterday complaining that when he entered his url into Google (yeah, like that’s what you’re supposed to do with it, but anyway) one of the links returned said it was from his site, but it instead brought up “an add” saying he should buy “GTP Cookies”. He was of the opinion that it wasn’t right for us to use his website to sell “our products” and wanted us to stop doing it immediately and “fix his site”.
The page in question? This one.
Apparently the ability to…
- Read the text on the screen in front of you.
- Comprehend English.
…is no longer a requirement for running your own business.
PS: If you happen to be multi-lingual please take the time to click on the flags at the top of the Cookie page and view our ‘translations’ into other languages. They were done rather quickly via Babelfish and are hence rather amusing. The Portugese one in particular is supposed to be a riot (photoreceptor leather-strap anyone?) 🙂
