Google adsense is very political

    I hate to say it but, google is using their platform for political agendas. Google has been doing it for a long time and I never noticed it. Now as I have noticed it I can look back and recall things that I thought nothing about at the time.

    My advice is if you’re going to apply for an Adsense account start your site off non-political and after approval begin slowly expressing your views. You’ll have a better chance at getting approved that way.

    True. It is not Google's exclusive feature however. Other tech giants from the Valley - Twitter and FB for instance - share this "politicized" approach. And it is necessary to keep this thing in mind if you want to deal with this problem.

    bad idea.

    no one cares about your political views.
    try a niche that is most likely that will yield results.
    your political views is not one of them.

    You're going to have to quantify that.
    • Are they showing ads you find politically targetted?
    • Or is your site too right wing for them and they're not publishing quality ads on your site and therefore hurting your revenue?

    That's why it's good to have more than one type of monetization. AdThrive and Amazon Affiliate maybe.

    To make a long story short - is Google against Trump or for him? :)

    Google is based out of Silicon Valley, so I would say they're absolutely, without a doubt, against Trump.

    I did this: first I created my blog, then applied for ADSENSE, though I didn't know all the policies and little things that google obligate you to do. So after I learned that I couldn't just share my posts on my 300 facebook account's, I just started posting 300x times more and sharing everywhere I could (without the adsense on, of course). Then when I got some organic traffic I just deleted all the "non-political" stuff and begin posting things they wanted. It worked just fine but took about a year.
