Of little value - is this in accordance with policies

The case is:

I search for "parking XYZ".

3 ads show up, for domain A,B & C

I click on B and on the landing page is 10 lines of text without much value, and a button

I click the button and is taken to a domain which is not the same as C, but is obviously owned by the same company, and where I can make a booking

I do think B will get a kickback from C if I make a booking on this last page

 

I can´t see that advertisers brings much value.

Could this possibly be against some AdWords policy?

Hi David,

Without seeing the sites in question, I can only assume that this is a case an attempt to gain an unfair advantage in the ad auction. I would recommend that you submit the information regarding these search results to this link, which will go directly to the Policy team: https://support.google.com/adwords/troubleshooter/4578507?rd=1
