Hi All,

Someone put a porn picture on subdomain, Now that google has given me warning to make the necessary changes in 3 days.

I am afraid there could be more pics like this on user generated content. I will delete the culprit picture and do a manual review of the subdomain also but to be on the SAFE side what should I do?

Can I put the subdomain on the UnAuthrized sites list of google adsense account for few days, till I am sure I have passed manual or automated review? Then I can revert it back

I dont wanna take any chances, so please advice

That's the risk you take when allowing others to produce content for you.

Don't just check of adult content, but also copyrighted work too.
Personally, I wouldn't have Adsense on UGC. At best, I would only add it to pages once I know that no violations are broken, and nothing else could be added to the page without me saying so.

LW said it all. I wouldn't put AdSense anywhere that users could upload things that appear before they're moderated. No way no how.

just remove the picture and the user, and keep an eye out for any potentially bad images.

The image was probably there for a while, and someone might have reported it.

I have had this a few time and it's not a big deal, just keep an eye open for porno pictures and delete them ASAP.

Famous last words. For all you know, you could be on your last warning. People have been banned for adult content in the past, and it will happen again.

Google may ban your site for Adult content and not your account that's why the other poster said it's not a big deal. And I agree with him/her.

Here's my advice to the OP:

1. Remove the offending image(s) and adsense from that particular page(s). After 3 days, a robot will visit that page again and it will detect automatically. Adsense will still run on your site.

2. Change user posting setting that allows post moderation or approval before publishing. It's going to be a lot of work on your part but it's better to be safe.

3. As for Copyright images, 100% of web publishers post copyright materials even sites like yahoo, cnn, tmz, and wikipedia but are protected by U.S. Copyright Fair Use Act (title 17, U.S. Code.), a doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders.

It's your right to agree with him/her, but you are incorrect with your answer.
I know of people who have lost their account because of adult content.

1. Remove the offending image(s) and adsense from that particular page(s). After 3 days, a robot will visit that page again and it will detect automatically. Adsense will still run on your site.

3 days? how did you come to that conclusion?

3. As for Copyright images, 100% of web publishers post copyright materials even sites like yahoo, cnn, tmz, and wikipedia but are protected by U.S. Copyright Fair Use Act (title 17, U.S. Code.), a doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders.

Firstly, not 100% of web publishers post copyright material (that is not their own.)
And you need to read the doctrine again.

Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out four factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair.

  • The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
  • The nature of the copyrighted work
  • The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
  • The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work


Seeing that this is an Adsense forum, fair use does not apply because of the adverts. There are more reasons too, but i've proved enough.

1. I am correct with my answer. However, if you have made MULTIPLE adult violations for a number of sites then yes, your account will be disabled. But we're talking about the OP's case here.

2. 3 days is the time Google give the publisher to make changes to his site. After 3 days, and if the publisher still has not rectified the problem, he will received a final email to make the changes or else Adsense will be disabled from displaying on that site.

3. YouTube is the greatest offender of copyright violations, but theyre still alive, aren't they?

I am not going to get into a discussion with you jbayabas, as it is like talking to a brick wall. You post any of my clients work, and you'll have so many lawsuits on your handss, no amount of adsense money will pay for the costs.

Show me your websites or your client's works and I bet I'll find copyright violations. A big entertainment website posted my copyright photography but I can't sue them without winning and wasting money. My only recourse is sending them a dmca takedown notice. A YouTube user even posted my copyrighted photos to his video. After sending a takedown notice, it only reappeared a few weeks later with a different user. That's why the copyright law that was supposed to be debated last year is now caput because big companies like YouTube and Wikipedia are against it.

Sure. I've written it on a piece of paper and placed it exactly 3 miles left of the horizon.

See, if you were really confident your sites are completely clean of copyright violations, you'd not be afraid to post them here or add them on your profile. Don't be such a hypocrite.

You think I am going to let people I do not know, to inform them of my site or any of my clients sites. Yeah right.
I am not a hypocrite. I have common sense. Even my wife's site is 100% her own work, and there are numerous people in here who generate their own content. I find your comments very insulting to many of us here, and to the people I represent.

That's what you think. Quoting an article is also copyright violation but again protected by fair use.

We all generate our own content but most are not 100% clean of copyright violations.

If you really want to protect the owners copyright materials is to pass a law to shut down a site without notice. But then again Internet would cease to exist.

Tired of wasting my time arguing with you Lame.

I thought we were supposed to be talking about the OP - that is what you pointed out to everyone else.
Anyway, my wife's site is all her own work. text, images, the lot.

What about all those mom n pop sites that make their own crafts, jewellery, clothes etc. and take their own photos, text etc.

Branding everyone with the same brush and accusing all webmasters of copyright violations only proves which end of your body you're talking out of.

Tired of wasting my time arguing with you Lame.
