    Guys Today i was surfing the net to find out the reason why rapidshare shifted its domain

    and i found out this was mainly because of adsense

    here is wat the article said

    "However, very recently, Rapidshare.de domain was banned by Adsense since it was primarily used for sharing bulk of illegal content including warez, pirated movies, MP3 songs, etc. The advertising revenue of rapidshare would have take a hit and their next advertising partner, etology.com, may not have been as effective as Google since their ad inventory were just an Adult dating website."

    But when asked to rapidshare they said

    "While Rapidshare AG says they are moving to Rapidshare.com because the disk space on RapidShare.de drives is exhaused,"

    So wat do u think is this all because of adsense

    adsense has approved them on thier .com domain

    there was no adsense ads on rapidshare.de
    and most of the d/l sites have adsense so i dont think that's the reason.

    I think it's the adsense reason. Because I don't think they ran out of space. How would they have more space if they moved to a different name? Plus maybe adsense is their main source of making money.

    Yeah, changing name due to disk space issues seems a bit odd!

    Changing a domain name isn't going to give them more hard drive space :p It was obviously cuz of the adsense.

    Changing a domain name won't give them more space but, that doesn't automatically imply that they did it because of Adsense issue...

    It only makes sense that they did it for the advertising reasons.

    aqua1, what was the purpose of that link? :confused:

    I think he was just spamming it everywhere. I saw him do the same in some other threads too and his posts are gone now.

    So they allow different domains, even if the service is basically the same? :eek:

    It's definately not a game of AdSense only for them, heaps of warez junkies (like me :p) pay for RapidShare premium.

    P.S. Where are the AdSense ad's, I never seen them.. :/
