Naymz Doing AdWords on Your Name?

Maybe I’m the last kid on the block to see this but it strikes me as a bit strange.
Ad on my name?

I am in the naymz network I guess, but was surprised to see this. It can give the assumption that I would actually pay for a PPC ad for users to see my Naymz profile that I’ve never really done much with.

For those unfamiliar with Naymz, it’s an online reputation management and networking tool where members can say nice things about each other and get a good rep score because of it.

I don’t know if it’s clever or annoying. Any thoughts? In Naymz? Google your name and there’s a good chance they’ll have an ad in your name.

Update – Thanks for the comment Tom. That explains it. I should check out my Naymz email more often 🙂

    Hi Paul,
    As a Naymz member with a RepScore of 9 or higher, you qualify for a sponsored result for your profile in Google as a Perk. Typically this is part of our Premium Subscription service which costs $9.95/month. Here is more information about RepScore and how the perks work…
