Friday evening and I started with toothache.
Not just a twinge, but the sort of Thor’s Hammer pounding, red-hot needle jabbing pain that turns a 6’4” bloke into a whimpering blob.
I know I can’t get to see my dentist until Monday so it’s time to search for temporary relief
The Googling begins and once I’m past the horror stories (maybe it IS an alien implant gone wrong not toothache?) I start to narrow down my searches.
Which is when I start to seriously dislike internet marketers.
Because every time I find what I think might be a decent site about how to cure my woes, I realise with frustration that what I’ve really found is a content site with articles written by someone with English as possibly a fourth a fifth language and stuffed with Adsense and Clickbank ads to monetize the blood thing!
It’s EXACTLY the sort of thing I’ve done myself in the past (but with better quality content).
But now I hate that it’s affecting my search for pain relief.
How dare people try to profit from my needs?
Fully aware that I’m now a classic ‘desperate buyer’ I keep searching, steadfastly refusing to click on any ads…
…until the realisation hits home, worse than any toothache.
The irony is more solid than any filling…
It was owning sites like these that paid for my dental work in the first place…
