    I'm relatively new to adwords. I've noticed competing campaigns seem to link direct to the product page with url masking, without using one of their own landing pages. I always assumed you had to sent clicks to your own landing page with adwords. These people seem to be redirecting a domain and using url masking.

    Is it worth me doing the same or will google just close my adwords account?

    Maybe what you are looking at is an I frame.

    You won't get shut down for this but eventually you'll be priced out of the game.

    If I hit a niche I believe in, I usually (99% of the time) start with the I frame method and let it ride for a couple of weeks to see what happens within the niche. If I am attracting traffic, maybe not big sales, but traffic, then I will take the time to build a landing page and put the time into the project to make it long lasting.

    If I am getting no bites and few lookers, I tend to take a hard look again at the niche by as an example, forum searching to see if people are just talking about it or actually looking to solve a problem.
