The bagpipes test

Welcome to Blog's usual Thursday night lineup of random links has been pre-empted. Instead, this post is going to be used to conduct a test of Google's advertising system.

This is only a test.

BAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPIPES!

"Dr. Tom," an occasional poster on the site, claims that a few inclusions of the word "BAGPIPES" will cause W2B's Google ads to display nothing but links to retail sites for the irritating musical instrument. Let's see if he's right. As a further test, I'm going to post a few BAGPIPE links.

This site contains a list of links to BAGPIPErs from around the world.

Wikipedia's entry on BAGPIPES can be found here.

Apparently, there's a site out there dedicated to listing every appearance of BAGPIPES in modern cinema.

BAGPIPES! BAGPIPES! BAGPIPES!




Ok, that should do the trick. My hypothesis is that Google's roaming bots base ad content entirely on links. Last week, I ran links to two Star Wars-related sites and toy ads for the sci-fi series have clogged the blog ever since. If I had actually bothered to read the fine print in Google's contract, it would probably say as much but this is a much more interesting way to find out, wi?

Ok, let's see what happens over the next few days. It's your move, Google bots.
