Google killed 1.7 billion ads and kicked 200 publishers in 2016.
I found a rather interesting article recently, so I want to share it with you all. - Are you aware of this??
These 1.7 billion adsare more than double the amount from 2015.. And all of them are killed due to violations of the advertising policies. It's an insane amount of ads!!
Here's a little something from the article:
Ads for illegal products
Some of the most common bad ads we find online are ads promoting illegal activities or products. Although we've long had a policy against bad ads for pharmaceuticals, last year our systems detected an increase online. We disabled more than 68 million bad ads for healthcare violations, up from 12.5 million in 2015.
Similarly, we saw more attempts to advertise gambling-related promotions without proper authorization from regulators in the countries they operate. We took down more than 17 million bad ads for illegal gambling violations in 2016.
