|Blocking misleading mobile ads|
| 1:58 am on Jul 28, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Every now and then we see an ad that is just misleading.
On the desktop it's easy to report the ad - but readers don't know where to click to report the ad.
It's an ad that shows up close to software listings trying to get people to click on it.
There's no product information, no URL, nothing. Ads Review Center for Mobile shows no ad at all so I can't block these even if I could find it.
How can Google really let this low quality ads run?

No URLS, please. Pretty sure this has been said before. Even to show "look how bad this ad is" - or maybe especially.
In theory all the image ads get manual approval, in practice if it's put in by an advertiser in good standing, maybe it doesn't.
But since you know the URLs, then you can block the domain, or you can upload the ad to the Ad Review Center and block everything that looks like it.
