Quibids Doesn't Want to be Identified as a Penny Auction

So I was just looking for penny auctions in general and not just Quibids and stumbled upon a very interesting thing - Quibids doesn't show up in Google if you type penny auctions!I find this quite interesting. After all, Quibids is perhaps the biggest penny auction site on the internet today. Quibids had the millionth auction recently, which is a great achievement. So why doesn't Quibids show up for penny auctions in Google?

There are many possible explanations for this. I assume that Quibids doesn't want to identify itself with the other penny auction sites. I assume this is because Quibids wants to stand out from the rest of the crowd. In addition, penny auctions seem to have a bad connotation attached today with so many of them, like Swipebids, turning into outright scams. Also, there are new penny auction sites opening up in every nook and corner of the internet. Perhaps Quibids doesn't really want to be seen in the same league as these.

Quibids advertisementWhat I also find interesting is that there is no Quibids ad showing up in Google for the keyword "penny auctions". Quibids is an aggressive advertiser and I have seen Quibids ads everywhere. In fact, I discovered Quibids through a similar advertisement a very long time ago. However, Quibids doesn't even want to advertise to people looking for penny auctions. This is indeed surprising because I am sure a lot of penny auction searchers can do with a far better version of Plundr and Beezid.
