Google To Ban Cryptocurrency And ICO Ads

Google headquarters in Mountain View California

Google painted a bleak picture of cybersecurity trends March 20, 2017, saying the number of websites hacked rose 32 percent past year, with little relief in sight."We don't expect this trend to slow down".

Google's updated policy came with the release of its annual "bad ads" report, a review of the number of malicious, deceptive and controversial ads Google scrubs from its massive search, display and video network.

Technology: Their technology helps to detect policy violations, new threats and disable those threats, the majority of which are done before people, publishers and advertisers are ever impacted.

Google shared today that the company's ads team killed 3.2 billion so-called "bad ads" in 2017, an increase of 88 percent from the previous year, when the company removed 1.7 billion "bad ads".

In 2017, they removed 320,000 bad publishers from their ad network (up from 100,000 in 2016).

His new deal is expected to be a shorter-term contract, with approximately $18 million per year in average pay. There were some things that we should have done that we should have done differently that we didn't do.

Google is also accelerating a push against misleading content. It equally removed 66 million "trick-to-click" adverts as well as 48 million adverts that were attempting to get users to install unwanted software. In order for this ads-supported, free web to work for everyone, it needs to be a safe and effective place to learn, create and advertise.

Google said that past year it took down over 3.2 billion ads that violated its advertising policies, removed 320,000 publishers from its ad network for violating its publisher policies, and blacklisted almost 90,000 websites and 700,000 mobile apps. It also removed 400,000 unsafe sites. According to the policy, it will block all the advertisements related to "cryptocurrencies and related content".

Scott Spencer, Google's Director of Sustainable Ads, said in a blog post on Wednesday that the company has "updated several policies to address ads in unregulated or speculative financial products like binary options, cryptocurrency, foreign exchange markets and contracts for difference (or CFDs)".

As Google implement these new changes, the Google ad's network becomes a lot safer, resulting in websites and blogs not having to worry about the ads that appear via Google's Adsense program.
