Quick Warning To All Bloggers

Q U I C K   W A R N I N G   T O   A L L   B L O G G E R S ...


Hey just want to warn you to make sure you do not post mature content (even non-nudes) on your blog or your adsense might be temporarily removed.  This was a warning issued against me for my "Hot Non-Asians Girls" post I wrote around a month ago.  Apparently after the end of October they found it and I just got the email today.

Unfortunately, I will have to put a "mature viewer" pre-screen before you can enter my blog, but I know that it won't be a big deal, hell if anything I can add more NSFW awesome stuff sometimes.


"As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to
place Google ads on pages with adult or mature content. This includes
images or video content containing lewd or provocative poses, or close-ups
of breasts, butts, or crotches."

So what do you do if this happens?  Don't panic.  Read the email, and make the changes to comply with the adsense policies.  Either that or you start selling your ad space to other companies privately.... But you are using Google's blogger platform so I am guessing that would violate their terms as well.  Anyways, here are some tips i'm writing below if this happens and what you should do.

1.) Know that you have three days after the warning to make necessary changes

2.) They have a contact link in the email which has a short form to fill in your information, Issue ID, and others.

3.) Review and make sure that your changes fit in with their policy.


Also just want to let you know that this is blog specific, and your adsense should remain active for your other blogs if you have them, but check your other blogs to makre sure that they also comply with adsense rules.

Anyways thats the end of my post, and the end of my warning.  Look forward to answering comments and reading more blogs later after work.

I wasn't going to do anything along those lines anyway, but it's good that you make it clear in case some people didn't know :)

Well, this is why I read the ToS several times... You can't really be too cautious when it comes to legal stuff :/

MacPCharmony said...

Thanks for the heads up... I did some cleanup on Sunday night and deleted blogs and posts that had this content.

Good thanks for the valuable information :3

Thanks for the heads up. My blog is about cybergoth models and weird fashion so I hope they don't see that as offensive. If they do I will call them fascists and take my high-ranking blog elsewhere.

I'm sorry this had to happen to you, but I'm actually quite glad that google is doing this. I hate porn spammers.

Gansita said...

That's odd, Google company is full of geeks without no life, they should thank good material instead of complain. LOL! nah, just messing around, that's a good advice, thanks, I'll check my blog if there is no "provocative" content :S fuuuuu....

Good to know. It's good that they contacted you and allowed to to fix it though, rather than just an insta removal.
