Hi MosheTLV,

I am seeing the same thing with auto transport. There's one advertiser that owns 3 different websites and he's triple serving.

Irelocation.com owns several websites that are violating the Adwords terms of service by double serving its ads across all 3 websites listed below.

1. Carshippingquote.com
2. Autogain.net
3. Movemycar.com.

All 3 of these sites use Adwords to generate Auto Transport Leads. Each of these 3 sites offers the exact same service in the same industry. On each site the customer fills in the following information then receives price quotes from Auto Transporters.

1. Name
2. Phone Number
3. Email Address
4. Shipping Locations
5. Vehicle Type
6. Available Shipping Date

Each of these sites is appearing on the same page (first page – positions 1-5) for 100s of search terms. Here are some examples of each violation.

1. Auto Transport (screen grab http://grab.by/qrGk)
2. Car Shipping (screen grab http://grab.by/qrGc)
3. Car Transport (screen grab http://grab.by/qrGi)

Website Ownership –
1. Autogain.net uses VeriSign for validation of ownership. From this screen grab, anyone can quickly see that Irelocation owns Autogain.net (http://grab.by/qrGy)
2. Movemycar.com lists the ownership information on the privacy page located at Movemycar.com/privacy.php. See the screen grab http://grab.by/qrH6
This page indicates that Irelocation owns several websites of which, Carshippingquotes.com is listed as part of the Irelocation network.

I have plenty of additional information to tie all 3 of these sites together and to prove that Irelocation is double serving. Just let me know what you need if this is not enough proof and I will add to this post.

Hmmm. That's strange. They worked before.

The bottom one is working: http://grab.by/qrH6

I'll try to get the other ones to work.

It's the parentheses that are causing the screen shots not to work. Here's the links without parentheses:

3. Car Transport screen grab - http://grab.by/qrGi

Website Ownership –

2. Movemycar.com lists the ownership information on the privacy page located at Movemycar.com/privacy.php. See the screen grab - http://grab.by/qrH6

Yeah, definitely DS. since the ads are different I think the affiliates don't know that they are marketing to the same domain. This is the fault of the affiliate company to ensure that there is no DS or TS amongst the affiliates...just IMO

@George;

Thank you for posting again, and attaching screenshots;

Case was referred to Google (among other cases found of "double serving " violations.)

I will update as soon as Google replies. (That may take some time)

These websites and ads are not affiliate based. There isn't even an affiliate program available from Irelocation. These sites are owned and operated by irelocation.

@MosheTLV;

I read that Google has improved their response times for reporting double serving violations compared to a few years ago. Have you noticed the process being a tad quicker in terms of getting a response?

Google linked two of the websites. The third one is a separate entity;
