Google AdSense Sucks – Censorship

This post was written by marc on October 18, 2003
Posted Under: General

Trying to figure out what this really means. Google has canceled my adsense account because trhey don’t like the content of my site. While that state that they believe in freedom of expression – clearly they do not. I therefore based on he way I was treated do not recommend Google AdSense to anyone who is a free speech site.

One thing to keep in mind is that Google as well as most of these affiliate programs write the rules in their favor and can change the terms and conditiona at any time. And they do that. The only recourse we have is to drop thier programs and tell them to go fuck themselves and report it on the net to warn others about how I was treated. So – I’m doing that.

When I tried to log into my account they had a new modified agreement that they wanted me to click on before I could see my stats. So – I don’t know how much they owe me or if I will get paid. I refused to agree to the new terms.

Here’s the letter from Google.

Hello Marc,

We’ve noticed that you’re displaying AdWords ads on a site
(www.perkel.com) that violates our program policies.

Our program specialists regularly review AdSense websites for various
criteria, including, but not limited to, site content, clear navigation,
and the site’s potential value to the AdSense program and the user
experience.

We’ve found that many of the ads that would appear on your site would not
be relevant to your site’s content. Because these ads wouldn’t provide a
valuable experience for your site’s users or our advertisers, we believe
AdSense isn’t currently appropriate for the website listed above. As a
result, we’ve disabled this URL.

Google has certain policies in place that we believe will help ensure the
effectiveness of AdWords ads for our publishers as well as our
advertisers. We believe strongly in freedom of expression and therefore
offer broad access to content across the web without censoring results. At
the same time, we reserve the right to exercise editorial discretion when
it comes to the ads we display in our AdWords program and the sites on
which we choose to display them in our AdSense program, as noted in our
respective terms and conditions.

Please feel to reply to this email with any questions. If you manage or
own another site on which you’d like to display AdWords ads, you may reply
to this email and include the URL in the message. We’ll be happy to review
this site and consider it for Google AdSense. If the new site complies
with our program policies, we’ll approve your application and allow you to
serve ads on that specific site.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,

The Google Team

They canceled my account without warning also. I made $140 but they took it all back. Bastards.

Written By someone on December 15th, 2006 @ 2:38 am

I wrote this one afternoon when I got really mad at them, but i never sent it in. though somebody might get a chuckle out of it.

Terms and conditions for Angelic Resolution:

This Agreement shall be between Google and / or Google AdSense (herein referred to as “Google”) and the former AdSense account holder who was not paid by Google and whom is sending this document to Google during or subsequent to the process of being notified by Google that their account has been closed, or during the process of appealing to Google to have their AdSense account reinstated and/or be paid the moneys due them for the use of their website by Google to display Google AdSense ads, (herein referred to as the Claimant). This Agreement is separate from and not bound by any previous Agreement between Google and the Claimant, or between the Claimant and any other parties, or between Google and any other parties. This Agreement takes precedence of any past, present or future Agreements between Google and the Claimant, and between everyone else deemed relevant. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of whatever country the Claimant chooses, in selective combination as the Claimant chooses, if the matter of geographic regional legality should apply in any way to the process of Angelic Resolution.

The Claimant is a person who has refrained from intentionally generating clicks on AdSense ads on their websites in any knowing way. The Claimant must be a person whom has previously been approved by Google and given an AdSense account. If Google can provide factual proof of fraudulent click activity in significant way (more than ten thousand clicks of fraudulent nature and / or more clicks in a given time period than can be accounted for by regular web traffic in the form of surfers, search engine spiders, and other similar and regular web usage), then the Terms and Conditions of Angelic Resolution are deemed to be annulled in the single case between Google and the Claimant who has been actually proven guilty of click fraud and has been provided with legitimate proof of such click fraud by Google. Proof must constitute not only proof of the existence of the alleged fraudulent clicks but also proof of having repaid advertisers as claimed by Google and direct evidence linking the fraudulent clicks if any to the Claimant. These 3 conditions must all be met by Google in order to legitimately annul the Angelic Resolution Agreement by establishing the ineligibility of the Claimant.

The Claimant must also be a person whom has provided web space for ads which actually displayed and be able to provide proof that Google has both used their website to display ads and subsequently been notified by Google that Google does not intend to pay for the use of the Claimant website after the fact. If the Claimant sends this document in response to en email from Google notifying the Claimant of Google’s refusal to pay for the web space after the fact, or during any subsequent communications with Google with the reference information “Re: [#xxxxxxxx] AdSense Account Status” and / or the same, similar, equivalent or other appropriate Google-generated reference information regarding the closed AdSense account, then this proof is deemed to be provided by the existence of said reference information and said email communications between Google and the. It is assumed that in accordance with Google’s policy, Google has blocked the Claimant’s access to information concerning the details of their former account, claiming privacy and proprietary technology concerns.

By failing to meet the terms of denial, Google agrees that this document represents and binds Google to this Agreement, individually with each Claimant. Google accepts this Agreement as an alternate Resolution in good faith and as a means of demonstrating philanthropic values while meeting the necessary dictates of commerce on the web by meeting the terms of acceptance (failing to meet the terms of denial).

Google acknowledges that not all websites which wish to display ads are good enough to be useful as advertising space, and furthermore Google acknowledges that there exist a broad demographic whom may provide web space to display ads but where the web space is not deemed good enough or convenient enough to pay for, and therefore it is more cost effective not to pay than to pay this demographic for the use of their web space.

Google also acknowledges that, in short, the evasion of payment is accomplished by first creating the impression through advertising campaigns that Google will pay for the use of said websites and then evading payment by closing the AdSense account citing unsupported allegation of wrongdoing. Google also acknowledges that this practice of choosing not to pay by demographic is different in nature than the rightful and just protections against actual click fraud, and is a defacto automatic process whereby the refusal to pay and the closure of the AdSense account is in application a screening process used by Google to determine which websites it is cost effective to pay and which websites it is not cost effective to pay for the use of their web space to display AdSense ads.

Google agrees that this is a simple necessity of its (Google’s) continued existence and chooses to offset the ethical implications by honoring this Agreement in this case with this Claimant and essentially acting like an angel investor, with the exception that Google is not an investor but rather simply paying the Claimant the monies due and a good deal more which may be arguably termed a random investment in the economy related to the Claimant, though it be delivered to the Claimant alone for use as the Claimant sees fit. Google does not want to ever see the Claimant again after honoring this Agreement. The Claimant does not ever want to see Google again after Google honors this Agreement. The two parties agree to in short, leave each other alone after this Agreement has been honored.

Google agrees to pay the Claimant the sum of $9,631,428.57 USD or equivalent currency in accordance with the Claimants wishes, in lieu of any future payment of any kind from Google to the Claimant regarding the closed AdSense account.

No part of this Agreement may be excised from the rest of the Agreement and the spirit of this Agreement may not be defeated by Google.

The Claimant agrees and acknowledges that the AdSense account in question is closed forever and will never ask Google for anything or take further legal action to pursue the matter with Google, in relation to this former AdSense account, if and only if Google meets the terms for acceptance of this Agreement and carries through with the actual payment of $9,631,428.57 USD or equivalent. If and only if Google meets the terms for denial of this Agreement (the Angelic Resolution Agreement) then this Agreement is deemed to be annulled, barring proof of actual click fraud on the part of the Claimant.

The Claimant is of the view that this Agreement (prepared by a Claimant) is a necessary balance against the use of AI in the decision making process, and that since Google is the single most used means of sourcing information employed by the entire human race, it would behoove Google to monitor the process through which the human compendium of knowledge is compiled, administered and made available.

The gravity of this concern for the future of humanity far exceeds any mischievousness, real or imagined, on the part of the Claimant in sending this document to Google.

The Google AdSense program constitutes a potential boon or hindrance in that it mixes the priorities of commerce and advertising with the priorities of the compendium of human learning. While the revenue generated by the presence of commerce makes possible the infrastructure to support the storage of and access to the compendium of human learning, the interest of the commercial advertising process presents obvious questions concerning the rightful consideration of the prioritization of and evaluation of the human compendium of knowledge.

It is obvious to the Claimant (a human) that Google (a corporation and therefore a legal ‘person’ but not a human) is unable to make some decision which humans make with ease.

The decision to meet the terms of acceptance of this Agreement (the Angelic Resolution Agreement) will likely be made by the machine component of Google and not the human component of Google. The existence of this Agreement shall serve as a regulatory measure in Darwinian sense of the degree to which AI systems and other automated response mechanisms are employed by Google, as the defacto compiler of the human compendium of knowledge.

Google asks that the Claimant refrain from unduly publicizing this Agreement but retains no influence of any kind over the Claimant once the Agreement has been met and the monies paid by Google to the Claimant.

The Claimant is of the view that automated account closure / appeal process is insufficient and is seeking proper redress capability, and proposes this settlement to what is assumed to be a non-human entity, and that a human would in most cases readily meet the terms of denial of this Agreement (the Angelic Resolution Agreement). The Claimant is of the view that if the entity negotiating this Agreement and / or a Google AdSense account closure / appeal process, or giving the appearance of negotiating one or more of these Agreements is of sufficient capability to be inherent to the compilation of the compendium of human knowledge, then the entity negotiating or giving the appearance of negotiating these Agreements will readily and with rudimentary intellectual capacity meet the terms of denial and nullify the Angelic Resolution Agreement proposed by the Claimant.

The Claimant is of the view that the intended spirit of this document is apparent regardless of typos and or other obvious grammatical / legal terminology errors, if any are contained in this document. Many of the terms of this Agreement are purposefully extreme and may seem to be absurd, and it is the intention of the Claimant not only to recover from Google their due and a reward for the callous treatment they were subjected to by Google, but also to protect the integrity of the human compendium of knowledge by enforcing the minimum intelligence level of decision making entities employed therein. If but a single instance of the Angelic Resolution Agreement is deemed to be legally binding and / or philanthropically honored by Google, this will produce a change in the methodology of Google on this matter and this is deemed to be the true human concern with respect to Google, the internet, and the compendium of human learning by the Claimant.

If the terms of denial are met, it is assumed that the previous Google AdSense account-related negotiations will proceed, after a human being has met the terms of denial for this Agreement (the Angelic Resolution Agreement). The terms of denial and acceptance are defined in the last two paragraphs of this Agreement.

If the terms of acceptance or met, it is asserted that:

A – Google AdSense is not even reading the email in which previous AdSense account holders are ostensibly offering proof of their innocence or explaining their cases to Google in order that Google may evaluate the information and decide whether to reinstate their account or deny the appeal, and that the defacto assessment of Google represented by the Angelic Resolution Agreement is correct, and has in fact been verified to be correct, knowingly or not, by the intelligence overseeing in a real way the Google AdSense account closure / appeal process

B – The human component of Google will discover this after the fat, just as the Claimant discovered Google’s premeditated intention to avoid paying for the use of the Claimant’s website after the fact.

C – Google is guilty of at least some severe ethical infractions in the way that it presents itself to the public with respect to AdSense, and at worst of fraud, and probably it is cheaper to honor the terms of the Angelic Resolution Agreement in a few cases than to by continued ignorance of email content allow the accumulation of large numbers of copies of the Angelic Resolution Agreement, which are according to the terms of the Agreement deemed to be acknowledged by Google in that the terms of acceptance are met.

D – There may be severe emotional discord on the part of the human component of Google regarding the actions of the Claimant and the machine component of Google, but the underlying issue, large enough import to invoke strong passion- is also of sufficient importance to resolve. Just as the Claimant is assumed to have read and understood the terms and conditions of the Google AdSense Agreement, Google is assumed to have read and understood the emails received from Claimant while discussing their AdSense accounts with Google (and this Agreement).

Terms of Acceptance:

Google will meet the terms of acceptance by failing to meet the terms of denial.

Terms of Denial:

Google will meet the terms of denial by responding with a human-composed email referring to this document (the Angelic Resolution Agreement) in direct wording within 1 week (7 days) of the date on which the email containing this Agreement (the Angelic Resolution Agreement) was sent by the Claimant to the email address that Google used to communicate with the Claimant concerning the AdSense account. This email will in brief acknowledge that they have seen this document and are not inclined to accept the terms proposed by the Claimant.

I echo the lines below. Also after much research into why my AdSense account was canceled like so many others. I found some startling information thanks to some tracking software I had installed on my site, 20 plus years in the IT field, and complete access to my Apache web site logs. (Believe me Google would offer no help in determining where the “invalid” clicks came from). So I had to do the research on my own. Heck, they would not even provide me the IP address of the so called “invalid” clicks. What jokers.. Anyway the “invalid” clicks are coming from other AdSense publishers. There using proxy servers and “well know to Google” tools to generate “invalid clicks” to sites (like ours “the competition”) that display the same type of ads they do. Why you ask? Same thing I want to know, once I figured out what was going on… Simple. To get your account canceled. The less sites that display that type of ads, the more it cost on AdWords for users to buy the clicks. The more sites these publishers have canceled the less clicks there are to buy an the price per click goes up. Simple supply and demand. And Google has no clue. Why? Because most of the AdSense staff has been replaced due to a shake up at Google. Now unexperienced techies using tools they don’t understand believe everything the tools tell them. The best part is the “doing much evil: publishers that are using unfair tactics understand how Google elects to cancel account better than they do. Using a long time active, but relatively unused adsense account on a well known site(the web master hated adsense, heck he hates Google period, and was going to close the account anyway). This theory was tested and sure enough the webmaster was send a e-mail closing his account, appeal denied, and no information offered by Google as to why. Mind you 96.2% of the click for that week were completly valid from grade A traffic. He even begged and pleaded and to no avail. There was no way Google could connect me to him unless the phones were bugged. We hardly knew each other. So there you have it. Google has come to the point where there arrant behavior is being used against them is such a way there not only screwing there AdSense publishers around, but also there AdWords clients with inflated ad cost. What jokers. Myself I getting away from both programs fast as I can. No wounder AdWords cost is going up and less and less traffic is to be had. Google is being run by a bunch of fools, or some smart insiders that are in on the scams (my guess). In any case it is hard to find, and I doubt they will find it themselves anytime in the near future. One insider told be that accounts are closed, publishers are banned forever, on a nothing more than hunch, or better, because someone tells them too. No evidence or proof offered or required. My guess is there are big bucks being exchanged on several levels all under the smoke screen “do no evil” right under Googles nose. I am simply going to get away from both programs as we the publishers, and the AdWords users, are paying for this scam under whatever name they call it. I proclaim Google “The New Evil Empire”.

Cheers!

Some of my friends running a IT business Indian withdrew their Google Ad account. As they are finding they were not benefitting anything out fo this rather loosing money.

Think how many of us woudl go to a businees site and click on this ad and get registered in the new business etc.. May be a very few. The google also have very unethical rules on monitoring too.

My friend foudn that his company had to pay $3.00 for every click while the hosting web site is geting probably 5cents. He said he woudl rather do his own marketing.

Google is using their power in the Search, but that is also slowly fading away as the Live.com is getting popular in the Search arena.

Yes, Adsense sucks so is this site (How is this for free speech ? Probably this post gets deleted off),
Once you’re ban from Adsense – You are banned for life, I use peel off advertising who is much effective against fraud clicks – What do you expect 99% click to have buyers ! Must be some idiot affiliate poster on Adwords counting profits !

Same thing happened to me. But for those of you who are complaining about having to remove the adsense code out of hundreds of pages, there is web editing software that can do it instantaneously, using their Search/Replace functions. Some software lets you only search and replace one sentence. Others let you replace or delete whole paragraphs automatically from many pages at once. You can use that to delete or replace the adsense code with one click of a button.

Eversoft web page design lets you do that, and you can download a trial version from the company website or download.com.

Or you can get a free version through BitTorrent sites.

Probably the best web program Dreamweaver has such a function too.

Guys, I saw your blog a day or two before i had joined google , i personally thought it was all that you guys must have clicked your ads , and so you were just making noise.

And today it happened to me 8-} , i have absolutely not even opened the site oftenly to see my revinues , not even google adsense, my ip changes everytime i connect to my isp so no static ip shit.

AND I RECIEVED the same google “your account suspended email”. And even though my account was 4 months old and only today my earnings reached $105usd. These google thugs closed my account !!!!! I Mean what the f were these guys doing from last 4 months, why didnt they warn me when anything happened ?

ONly a moron would see no relation to the earning payment and closure of the account as conicidence. Why didnt they take action when it happened (if it happened of course), i have my detail hit logs there is nothing suspectful.

And WTF a ad shown on my website also showed an ad campaign i was managing for someone, and $10 went into only these clicks . SO WHY DIDNY GOOGLE return the money to the adword publisher that is another client of mine.

And look at the shamelessness of google that it still shows ads on my blocked account on my site. Dont tell me they cant block there ads from appearing in my account !!!

So you guys beware that dont be sure till u get any paycheck, and if u r happy that ur account has reached 99.99$ and u think ur paycheck is coming i advise you to be prepared to get the same email igot. YES GOOGLE SUCKS like hell. Adsense is fraud being openly conducted by this monster company.
