Made For AdSense: No

This site can summarized in one word: Mesothelioma. It is a word synonymous with high-paying keyword lists. Webmasters will often joke about it, but really it's sad that a cancer condition has been trivialized by speculators. The reason for using such words in Made For AdSense sites is almost like a pyramid scheme. Lawyers make money from lawsuits, lawyers place costly AdWords ads for mesothelioma keywords, publishers put up junk websites with AdSense optimized for mesothelioma keywords, then publishers use AdWords accounts to get traffic to their junk websites, and the cycle continues.

Visitors Planet doesn't stop with just useless mesothelioma pages. You can also find useless pages about debt problems, credit cards, and other neat keywords. The content isn't automatically scraped, but it's so elementary that it's the equivalent of a high school student's book report derived from a dictionary definition. So, I'll give it a ranking of 3.

The ad layout isn't all that deceptive, and is perfectly legal by Google's standards. The reason it only gets a 6 is because the ads overwhelm the content.
