Tom Cruise promotes his site using AdWords?

SMS Text

It’s time for a little bit of Sunday fun reading. Remember that hotly contested tomcruise.com domain which was later on given to actor Tom Cruise, the site is apparently gearing up for full launch as evidenced by some sponsored ads appearing on Google when you search for the keyword “Tom Cruise”. The Holywood Newsroom’s got the scoop on the ads that started appearing right after TC guested on Ophra’s show. (note: I tried doing the search, but the sponsored ads will not display on my screen though, anyone else seen the ads?).

“Get the real scoop from Tom Cruise. Stay Tuned for Official Site Launch”

“The Countdown is On. Tom Cruise launches May 5th. Get the Scoop!”

“The Official Site Launches Soon”

Well, whoever is handling TC’s site must know their numbers when it comes to SEO and site promotion strategies though. The Sponsored Ads run like after Ophrah and Tom talked about the coming site. So, the site’s programmers knew when to run the ads, expecting that a slew of curious readers would start searching for the site after watching the show.

So, we’ll see if what’s really coming from tomcruise.com as soon as it is launched. Will Tom become a blogger now? Or will he just use the site for his “scientology” project. Why do I sense that we’re not really interested at all?

    The ad doesn’t seem to be running now so they must be trying to save a few dollars for the upcoming roll out.

    I don’t think he is targeting users outside of the US from what I can see.

    He is a nut job, but he has made some great movies!

    He’s just probably run out of ideas on how to get more publicity.
