Google AdSense calls anti-Federal Reserve content "sensitive"Submitted by Angel C on Mon, 10/01/2012 - 20:14
Google is well known as a search engine just as they are well known for their advertising options. Google AdSense is an easy to use product that places advertisements on your website. The company will then pay you based on the number of clicks your website drives to their products. Google AdSense, however, does seem to deny certain websites. If your website has content that violates Google AdSense's "content guidelines", the company will not work with you. "Some examples include content that is adult, violent or advocating racial intolerance," Google AdSense states on their program policy page.
It seems relatively clear, if your website has pornography or "violent content", Google AdSense does not want you. If your website has "content related to racial intolerance or advocacy against any individual, group or organisation", Google AdSense does not want you. If your website includes "excessive profanity", "hacking/cracking content", "gambling or casino-related content", or illlicit drugs and drug paraphernalia content", Google AdSense does not want you. If your website sells "beer or hard alcohol", "tobacco or tobacco-related products", "prescription drugs", "weapons or ammunition", "products that are replicas or imitations of designer or other goods", or "distribution of coursework or student essays", Google AdSense does not want you. Google AdSense also will deny websites that involve compensating users for clicks or "any other content that is illegal, promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal rights of others".
All other websites should be good to go, right? Wrong.
Google AdSense turned down a website claiming the site contained "sensitive content". "We have reviewed your site and found that many of the ads that would appear on your site would not be relevant to your site's content. As the ads would not provide a valuable experience for your site's users or our advertisers, we feel that your site isn't a good fit for the AdSense program at this time." This statement was neatly written in a rejection letter received by SecretsoftheFed.com.
