I'd like to take your views on the modern Google. Like many of you - AdSense changed my life since it gave me additional income for simply building a website that I thoroughly enjoyed. I've deliberately not posted in the Adsense section because this is about how Google is changing and how we think that that 'Our Philosophy' is changing.
'You can make money without doing evil' Of course depends on how 'evil' you want to be. But ethically, could 'evil' include drugs and supplements (not really the same thing G), sex and sexuality (not really the same thing G) Weight loss, get rich schemes etc.
As I recall it - the reason why AdSense was so refreshing was that it didn't include these areas.
Then there are the 163 certified networks - Like the curate's egg.
Suggest 'You can stop declining growth by getting rid of your philosophy when it suits you.'
Others please . . . .
