Google Ads on Warez websites

    A warez site located in China is displaying Google Ads. - screenshot on my blog

    Google prohibits ads on Cracking related websites. So how did this website manage to trick Google ?

    Atleast it is a file-uploading website.

    The above site is purely for warez.

    yeah it is a file uploading site but 98% of the files uploaded on this website are warez.

    and the above is 100% against google TOS but why google is not blocking them ?

    Report them. See what happens. It might just take a bit of time.

    I guess, they wont be doing it immediately. They would do it once in a while bulk after analysis. I guess some human should look at the page and only they they decide.

    Thats what i feel.

    That is absolutely insane.

    This web site is breaking six sections of the AdSense program policies:

    1. Hacking/cracking content
    2. Pornography, adult, or mature content
    3. Gambling or casino-related content
    4. Excessive advertising
    5. Any other content that promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal rights of others
    6. Sales or promotion of prescription drugs

    For all of their marketing hooey about hiring brilliant people -- it is extremely clear that the AdSense support and AdSense abuse staff are not even literate in the English language.

    In the long term, this will cause irreperable harm to the AdSense brand, which will hurt both adsense Publishers and AdSense advertisers.

    Well perhaps if people start reporting it like mad, they'll take notice. I wonder what AdsenseAdvisor will have to say to this.

    Sites like Astalavista get a /lot/ of traffic. Rules can be bent. Why do people assume certain sites are breaking rules, and why does anyone give a fuck? Mind your own damn business what other sites are doing.

    They may well be premium publishers with the authority from Google to display adverts given the ammount of traffic they will recieve, yet Google will have to deal with 20+ 'reports' from pointy-finger-tell-tale knob heads now.

    Here's another funny.

    If you search for "adsense" on Overture via the DigitalPoint Keyword Tracker, you will find that "adsense fraud" is the third most searched for AdSense keyword.

    Overture 
    adsense 293.1 /day  
    adsense google 243.6 /day  
    adsense fraud 30.9 /day  
    adsense asbestos 28.2 /day  
    adsense yahoo 21.6 /day 
    Code (markup):
    As an AdSense publisher, this worries me greatly -- because concern about fraud could destroy the whole AdWords/AdSense revenue model.

    If I were an AdWords publisher -- this would absolutely terrify me.

    Well, if Google are bending the rules, then they might just as well not have a ToS. As for as your comment on minding our own business, that's exactly what we are doing. Adsense is the business model driving my site... so trying to ensure the integrity of the Adsense network by giving feedback, I'm doing just that!

    Exactly.

    AdSense abuse discourages advertisers from spending their advertising dollars with AdWords -- which hurts AdSense publishers.

    Astalavista has been around for YEARS and is a VERY popular site which gets MASSES of traffic. I'm SURE they qualify for being a premium publisher. They aren't just some small warez website 'abusing adsense', certainly not.

    So yes, I know the site and its history and know there's a hell of a lot of people visiting there. Perhaps you're clueless and should be quiet.

    No way that astalavista isn't a premium publisher? You're talking bollocks, mate. There's a hell of a chance they ARE premium publishers and have been granted permission to USE AdSense.

    just see their ads GAYDOOD. Its a default adsense ads like the one on newbie site. If they are premium publisher, I'm sure they will customize the ads for their advantages. Do you want me to show you how premium ads looks like?

    Whether they're small or not, they still violating adsense TOS. Go read it again and again.

    Hey Pete,

    Maybe the public forum concept has been overlooked by you BUT people can post what they choose. You should mind your manners a little better. There is no way that Google allows them, a site notorious for breaking the law, to be a premium publisher. You are wrong.
