Does This Mean We Are Famous?

I have to admit – this one is stumping me.

Over the weekend I googled “komarketing associates” (which I do sometimes just to get to our site and catch a view of what Google has indexed along the way).  And I saw this ad from WebTrends:

It seemed natural that this would be one of the funny/strange anomalies that Google AdWords produces from time to time.  I figured that it must be the presence of “marketing” in our company’s name that triggered the ad.  So, I searched for a number of terms related to marketing (I even tried “marketing associates”).  No ad.

Then I decided to try some other SEO/SEM company brands/people to see if the same ad would appear.  iProspect, SEOmoz, High Rankings, Bruce Clay, Graywolf, Mindfire, and others.  No ad.

I also tried some competitors to WebTrends – Omniture, Indextools, Google Analytics, Coremetrics, and others.  No ad. At least not the same ad from WebTrends (i.e. “WebTrends Ad Director”).

Then I tried some search engine marketing-related terms – search engine marketing, search engine advertising, pay per click management, etc.  No ad.

For some reason I kept going.  I typed in “keyword bidding” – and saw the ad!!

So, does someone at WebTrends have an eye on KoMarketing Associates?  For now I’ll choose to think we have their attention & admiration (and that it’s not some Google AdWords glitch).  Why not?
