Google routinely weeds out “bad ads.” Now it weeds out more bad ad publishers, too.
The company banned the publishers from its AdSense network, an ad placement service that automatically serves text and display ads on participating sites based on its audience. The ban was part of an update to an existing policy that prohibits sites that mislead users with their content.
Google declined to provide a listing of the banned sites.
We had Google AdSense ads on this blog for a few years. They were on the left sidebar and we were paid about $200 every six months or so. Payment was based on the number of ad clicks by our blog readers.
Google dropped us about five years ago because we didn’t have enough traffic for them to bother with.
