Who wants an AdWords Search Engine?

By now google must have a massive inventory of text ads, and growing every day. An "adwords search engine" would search this inventory and work like google - you enter a keyword and get back an SRP of all the (text) ads running on that keyword. Each ad would also show critical parameters, such as which network(s) it's running on, its geo-targeting and maybe the QS for the keyword.

The AdWords Search Engine would allow advertisers (and anyone else that's interested) to check out the worldwide ad market and competition.

I think it's one of those nice ideas that we'll never see.

I thought there was already a way to do this. But I can't seem to put my finger on it at the moment....

You're probably thinking of the method described below. This is helpful but it's a very limited solution. I had a more general solution in mind.

Limited Solution:
Take keyword car as an example:

To find all ads on this keyword targeted to the United Kingdom click..
http://www.google.com/sponsoredlinks?q=car&gl=uk

To find all ads on this keyword targeted to the United States click..
http://www.google.com/sponsoredlinks?q=car&gl=us

To find all ads on this keyword targeted to London click..
http://www.google.com/sponsoredlinks...ENG&gcs=London

etc. etc.

It's hard work. I was looking at a more general solution for an "adwords search engine" - a "google like" solution that displays complete ad inventory worldwide for any keyword. Together with key operating parameters for each ad.

Advertisers might like this, and so might google, because it gives them something they are *always* looking for i.e. more ad distribution channels.

Just an idea.
