Google Ads Have Been Disabled by Google
 
Hi,

I wanted to let our visitors know that Google has disabled serving ads at nV News. Note that they did not disable our Google AdSense account.

I received two e-mails yesterday from Google stating that the "Babe Thread" and the "Bianca Beauchamp" thread are displaying Google ads "in a manner that is not compliant with their program policies."

This is a serious issue for nV News as we rely on Google Ads for revenue. I immediately began working on implementing a solution to resolve the problem.

The following information is the pseudo-code that was included in all vBulletin templates that serve Google Ads at nV News:


--- BEGIN PSEUDO CODE ---


If visitor is a forum subscriber (browse ad-free)

do not display Google Ads

Else

If thread id = 6189 or 696008 (offending threads)

do not display Google Ads

Else

display Google Ads

End If

End If


--- END PSEUDO CODE ---


I provided this information to Google and hope that they will remove the block from serving their ads. However, this solution is not "fool-proof" as it requires manual intervention from our awesome moderators to control.

Google has the resources to perform this type of check automatically behind the scenes. I'm convinced that they will eventually develop an algorithm that can detect if an image is not compliant with their program policies.

Carry On,
MikeC

It seems google Custom Search has been disabled as well. I can't google anything on this site.

Still works on Google. I can still see your "research paper" thread.

Yea, but on the site, you know the search at the top in the middle. That doesn't work. At least not for me.

I get this:

Google

403. That’s an error.

Your client does not have permission to get URL /cse?cx=partner-pub-6344472472167039%3Akrgosz-meeh&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=Albo&sa=Search+Site&siteurl=www.nvnews.net%2Fv bulletin%2Fshowthread.php%3Fp%3D2447991%23post2447 991 from this server. That’s all we know.

Yes, it looks like Google disabled their Search feature as well.

Makes sense, I guess. According to my Adsense account, 25,794 page impressions have been recorded during the last 7 days.

The issue has been corrected and it can take up to two business weeks for them to respond. After all, Google has tons of web sites serving their ads.

It's a similar situation that Google has to deal with when their users post copyrighted content to YouTube. It used to take a cease and desist letter from Hollywood until Google removed copyrighted content from YouTube.

They may have reaped benefits by serving copyrighted content. I really don't know, but we broke the rules and are adhereing to the process that Google requires to hopefully begin serving their ads once again.

I'm sorry I don't spend my time fapping to a picture of a clothed woman on a video card forum. :retard: I don't see the big deal with it gone.
