Adult Ads Appearing, Since when?

I'm terribly sorry if this is a re-post, but I'm somewhat surprised to see adult ads on my website....

It is a website about women, yes. The thing is, I'm not too happy with displaying adult ads, and I didn't think google allowed them. These are blatant, and have 'ADULT STAR ***NAME***' in the title as well.....

My website is completely viewable by all ages, but now the Adsense is making it an 18+ website....

Since when did GA start allowing adult-ads?

Oh, nice little extra: I do get good CTR on the ads... I feel insecure about my visitors ;)

Email Google and tell them you don't appreciate porn being advertised on your site through their ads.

AFAIK, Adsense TOS states only that you mustn't have adult content on your site. TOS places no such restrictions on Google. ;)

I wonder how my hosting service, with similar restrictions on adult conten,t would regard this.

I have had the occasional dating service ad (ok gig lists on my site have dates but not that sort) and one or two deliberatly targeted at the "pink pound" (no idea why at all) but nothing more "adult" than that so far.

That's an interesting question, I wonder how G would reply if you told them your host has asked you to remove the porn ads.

I just had adverts appearing from a Tee Shirt company that was called "nipplecripple". I wonder just what the webmaster was smoking when he thought that was a good name for a Tee shirt company.

The site is pretty ordinary but I blocked the adverts as the name is just so appalling.

I don't know, t-shirt ads get great clickthru's for me. Maybe give old nipplecripple a try.

We're floating away here. I'm not talking nipplecripple shirt companies. I'm talking hard-core adult ads. I used another word for this but apparently that has been censored ;)

There are no adult-content restrictions in adwords?

Of course it's against Google Adwords TOS, but what do you expect from the people with those sites? They are traditionally dishonest and morally bankrupt.

I assume you filtered the ad and informed Google? Let us know what they say.

I have found that advertisers can push whatever they want in their AdWords Ads. However, once they are reported then Google will yank the ad.

Yes, filter them and report them to Google.

I work with a company that sells rare whiskeys and they managed to advertise through adwords for a while before getting their ads removed. They innocently did not realise that whisky was in googles ban list.

Adwords TOS allow advertisers to advertise for adult products and services. As long as there are no illegal (underage and stuff) things going on.
