You won’t believe this…

I picked up a domain the other day (not to be mentioned).  I found out early on (after I purchased it) that the site was previously owned…which can be either good or bad (or both).  If it was a site in good standing with search engines, then good.  If it was blacklisted, then bad.  I had already set it up by the time I found out, so I didn’t really worry about it one way or the other. 

But a few minutes ago, I found something REALLY unexpected.  While “Googling” for it, a few sites came up that were [still] delivering ads for it!  I think some of them were originally shared links, but it seems some were actual paid ads.  And yes, the content of the ads is still pertinent.

I’m not really sure what to think just yet, but I am a little surprised and amazed right now…and so far, in a good way.  Of course, I am calculating the ways that this could be bad, but thought it was certainly something worth blogging about.  Any thoughts?  Anyone ever had this happen to them?
