    Absolutely.. but in this case, do you think they would be buying ‘PPC’ phrase or broad match?

    Good point Nisho, though I still think it is weird that they are the *only* advertiser – that makes me more suspicious!

    I just took at look for “residential solar 101” and there were all sorts of ads, and from companies that I can’t imagine are targeting “residential solar 101”. Therefore I think it must be a phrase or broad match on the advertising even though you have it in quotes.

    Is that possible?

    Dang Dave, you may be on to something there! You are bursting my bubble!

    Nice screenshot! I sure do hate it when people buy my TM, but thinking in this case it could be broad match as Nisho pointed out… When I actually do the search on Google (both in reality and on preview tool), I also notice other folks buying your TM!
