Google will ban ads for cryptocurrencies

Google introduced new technology previous year that allows it remove Google ads from pages rather than a whole site, a move that has seen it penalise more than 2 million web URLs every month. Google declined to disclose what percentage of total ads they had sold, but the number of ads removed in 2017 doubled that of 2016 and quadrupled that of 2015.

The move comes as Google and Facebook confront pressure to purge their networks of scams, misleading advertising, and political propaganda. Last year, we removed 2 million pages for policy violations each month.

"We will revisit this policy and how we enforce it as our signals improve". "After expanding our policy against unsafe and derogatory content in April 2017 to cover additional forms of discrimination and intolerance, we removed Google ads from 8,700 pages that violated the expanded policy", she stated.

After a tumultuous year of brand safety issues, fake news and highly publicized extremist content plaguing its various ad networks, Google released its latest Trust and Safety Report outlining the steps it has taken to fight ad fraud, malware and content scammers. It added that it paid out over $12.6 billion to publishing partners past year.

Our publisher policies exist to help us maintain that balance, even as trends change online. "There are many companies who are advertising binary options, ICOs and cryptocurrencies that are not now operating in good faith", said Facebook Product Management Director Rob Leathern earlier this year. 320,000 website publishers were banned for failing to meet its policies for publishers, with over 700,000 apps blacklisted. Too often, Google identifies violations of its scraping content policy.

Google continues to write and enforce new policies to protect consumers and publishers.

Stansfield said there has been an increase in fake news sites, which run badly written false stories with the hopes of getting people to their page to click on the adverts Google runs on their page.

It suspended more than 7,000 AdWords accounts for tabloid cloaking - a search engine optimisation (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser - up from 1,400 in 2016.

"But in 2017, we also focused on tech to detect and disable new threats before people see them".
