Google Continues to fight bad ads sites and scammers

It is good that Google is trying to make the online world a better place by fighting against bad ads, sites and scammers. According to the blog post title “How we fought bad ads, sites and scammers in 2016” from Google Inside AdSense, Google took down 1.7 billion ads that violated their advertising policies in 2016. Google’s systems detected and disabled a total of 112 million ads for “trick to click”. More than 68 million bad ads for healthcare violations were disabled. They even took down more than 17 million bad ads for illegal gambling violations, nearly 80 million bad ads for deceiving, misleading and shocking users. They also detected and disabled more than 23,000 self-clicking ads on mobile. And the data or results of Google’s action continue as you read the blog post above.

I wonder did Google ever misjudge or make a mistake on the accusation. Did Google ever give people a chance to explain and defend the accusation? Or Google just take action directly? The best trick Google perform is implementing new policy and set a date for publishers to follow. When the time is up, Google starts to punish those who did not follow their new policies. So if you are not careful and forgetful, your Google AdSense or AdWords account will be terminated without giving you a chance to explain or appeal. This happens especially if you haven’t been logging in your account for years. Don’t be surprise when suddenly you receive an email from Google saying that your account has been terminated because of violating their rules and policies.

Is it fair? Well, I think Google won’t entertain you if your site or blog is not big or popular enough. But if your site or blog becomes popular or big, you don’t have to depend on Google to make money online. There are other money making opportunities online that are as good as or better than Google.
