    ...Busy at banning

    I don't know what's more amazing. That they banned that many advertisers or the fact that they still have many more. I'm wondering how large their manual review team is.

    Now I'm curious how many "Adsense Partners" they banned.

    I was banned like 2-3 weeks ago, my girlfriend clicked on a couple of my ads (i didn't know this till after) is what I think the reason is other than that they had ZERO reason to disable my account.

    Google should learn to mind their own business. Since when is Google the Internet Cop? They are a search engine. Since when were they given the power to go around doing what they want?

    There is something missing from that report and that is.

    Google spied on xxxxx users in 2012 violating their own privacy policy.

    Are you serious? Mind their own business? They are minding their own business, Google Adwords is their business, if people keep getting shitty ads they will eventually stop clicking them. Google want's to bring out the best possible ads to its userbase, there is nothing wrong with that.


    "In 2012 Google shut down 12,900 sites promoting get-rich-quick schemes; 123,000 sites hiding malware; 82,000 accounts attempts to sell counterfeit goods and 8,600 accounts making phishing attempts." I dont see anything bad in this, the less shitty products on the internet, the better.

    I wonder what their definition of banned is? Are they also referring to ads that get held up in AdWords for not being to spec?

    Lets be realistic. The IRS, FBI and other law enforcement agencies have a back office at Google's business. That's whay they allow to get them away with lots of unfair practises.
