Like creating a online pharmacy and when user tries to buy a product, I will notify a awareness message saying thats it is a honey pot website to provide awareness. I wont collect any personal information and this is only used for research from the data collected through Google analytics.

Hi Web M,


I think that practice would be very likely to violate the "misreprensation of self, product, or service" policy. I think a better approach would be to try to attract the attention of users by asking a question in your ads and then creating awareness on your landing page. This way everything is clear and your mission is still being accomplished.
