Google Takes Aim At Domain Tasting
Will stop using AdSense during 5 day grace period
Recently Network Solutions
was widely criticized for taking domains users had searched for at their site, and holding them ransom so they couldn't be registered for five days anywhere else. In contrast, Domain Tools
reports that Google will stop putting AdSense ads on domains during their free five-day grace period. The act by Google, focusing largely on protecting Google legally, could put a major crimp in the practice of domain tasting
-- at least until tasters find an alternative advertising system.
