    So, I have a question and want to see your thoughts and reactions.

    I think it is "IRONIC" how Google always says they "hate spam" and those who spam results and things of that nature, however I get 2 - 3 automated calls from them everyday trying to get my office started using Google Adwords.

    What are you guys thoughts on this? Do you guys receive those automated calls as well?

    Opt out. Problem solved.

    There's a difference in spamming the shit out of everything on the web and promoting your brand to someone who opted in for that.

    The best way to get rid of these calls is to use Asian language (ie Urdu, Hindi etc) while talking.
    *I personally tried this method several times*

    I have opted out of them..

    I just think it is Ironic - that they are constantly trying to "Push the Message" of making better results for their Serch Engines and trying to limit spammers and things of this nature, but they go through the EXACT same methods via Offline Marketing....Automated Phone calls are nothing but "Outbound Marketing Strategies" which are now commonly referred to as "Interruption Marketing".

    Would this be the Sales Team from Ireland that are actually based in the UK but pay no taxes because they're meant to be in Ireland?
