Where are the Pinoy scandals?

Where have all the Pinoy scandals gone?
A while ago, I saw the words “Pinoy Scandals” advertised on the Google text links ad unit at the right sidebar of this page. Out of curiosity, I decided to click on the text link to find out what sites are being advertised. (Seriously, I’m just curious…)
(FYI, clicking on the text link per se does not violate Google Adsense’s policies. Publishers are not paid for clicks on the initial topics, but on the ad clicks on the linked page.)
What appeared after clicking the “Pinoy Scandals” text link topic?
An error saying:
Sorry! We couldn’t find any ads related to your topic. Please enter another topic below.
YouTube video of that here:
Weird. If there are no advertised sites, why in the first place would there be a clickable topic on the link unit?
Is that a “click-bait” strategy by Adsense so that you’ll click on the link and then, after seeing that there are no advertised sites, use the search engine to search for what you are looking for and eventually click on the Sponsored Ads, in which case Google gets paid by advertisers? Too much of a stretch there, eh?
Or probably Google Adsense’s algorithm is just, you know, unpredictable at times?
Or did Google already decided to totally ban the advertisements of Pinoy and Pinay sex scandal sites?
Google has long been known to be trying to act prude, and just recently, they announced that Google Adsense will strictly not be allowed on sites that are not family-safe.
What’s a site that is not “family-safe?” According to Google,
… adult or mature content may include any material that is not appropriate for all audiences. While this obviously includes full nudity or sexual activity, it may also include textually explicit sexual content, image or video content containing lewd or provocative poses, strategically covered nudity, see-through or sheer clothing, and close-ups of anatomy that would be inappropriate if shown nude. Additionally, topics such as sexual health and sex tips may be held to a higher standard of professionalism than content that isn’t bordering on mature.
In effect, Google Adsense is prohibited on any site that parents may deem inappropriate for their children.
But I digress. I still want to know: why is there a “Pinoy Scandals” text link ad if there are no sites being advertised?
Ah, whatever. Those looking for Pinay sex scandal videos don’t need to click on those sponsored link ads to get to the sites anyway. They just have to search for them using Google.com.
