I just got a rejection mail from google.
I applied for a new adsense account for a site I made with a partner. The site is on venereal diseases. They find this unsuitable adult content.

If anything people (and children!) should be made aware of the content of the site! It gives tips about how NOT to get an std, you'd think a large fortune 500 company would support this idea. Apparently google does not.

I am shocked and appalled.

No idea why. I just googled venereal diseases, and came across a few sites with adsense on them.

What does this have to do with putting Adsense?

Sounds like you're in for some interesting interest based ads over the next few days.

@kaon: the point i was trying to make was that google should encourage websites like these. They do the opposite by not supporting them through adsense.

That comment reflects a serious misconception.

It is not ... repeat not ... AdSense's job to "support" sites.

AdSense's job is to accomplish business goals for the advertisers who pay to appear on your site.

I trust you can see that not everyone sees this the way you do, right? That's not just limited to Google - I would absolutely agree that Google's decision is correct, no matter what you believe I or my children need to be educated on.

the whole point is that I cannot see one good reason why this site should not be allowed.
It is no more "adult content" than a website on fly fishing.
I don't see why they reject this site, there are other sites out there that have similar content and that display adsense ads.

I would absolutely agree that Google's decision is correct

please clarify

Well, when you figure that out, then you'll know why Google said no.

It is adult content, no matter how much you really want it to be not adult content.

They do. You will find them in the SERPs.

I don't quite get that. If they are at your site already, then what do you need adsense for... other than to monetize it. Like I said before, there are sites out there that do have adsense on such sites. One I spotted was extremely spammy in the way adsense was being used. I know it doesn't mean that because others are out there, then it is okay to use, but you may want to find out why they have it and you don't.

You don't watch too much MTV do you (me neither, but I know about 75% of their programming is about minors having sex).

The OP's site could have been rejected because some new hire at Google was approving sites that day, who knows. It seems like a rather arbitrary decision to me.

Again: there are plenty sites out there with similar content.
I think they rejected me because I made a new account for this site. If i'd have just put ads on it using an existing account there probably would not have been a problem.

They do. You will find them in the SERPs.

This is new to me, so you would say that google also supports hard core prn, terrorism and microsoft? All these topics can be found using their search engine (so I have heard!).

vampke: But to get back to your original question: Adsense is NOT for supporting sites as already said by buckworks. If you want your site to be of value to its visitors you need to have serious good content and promote it. Monetizing through adsense is a different issue.

OP indicated a NEW adsense account... Suggest that G is looking hard at all NEW accounts these days. Their pipeline is already full and they can (and might) be choosy as to what they accept. G is not short of participants, in fact, they own the market and can pick and choose. Just another thought.

On the other hand, G, like any other business partner, enters into agreements at their leisure---they are not REQUIRED to do business with anyone.

It was, but you gave some dumb examples... hard core prn, terrorism and microsoft.

You must be the first person i've met who cannot find any of the above in Google etc.

If your goal is, and I quote... "people (and children!) should be made aware of the content of the site" ... then open an Adwords account and you can spend all your money on promoting it.

1: Define terrorism and terrorist.
2: One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

And yes they do, Google Noraid, or noraid terrorism. Or, you could Google RAF, USAF etc.

Don't worry, you'll never see the point I - or others - are making.

You don't watch too much MTV do you (me neither, but I know about 75% of their programming is about minors having sex).

As I noted, squealing about it doesn't make it NOT adult content. It makes it sticking your head in the sand.

But folks keep sticking to your guns over it here. Maybe Google will come along, read the thread, and have a change of heart.

Define Minor.

It may depend in some degree upon how you present your information.

And it may be that there's nothing "wrong" with your site, but a) they don't think they have enough of the right kind of advertising to support it, or b) they think it might represent some risk to the advertisers.

Or it could be completely arbitrary. Who knows.

If your primary goal is to educate people - well, there's your site, now draw some traffic to it. If your primary goal is to monetize it, then you'll have to look around for another way to do so.

Google will do what Google do.

When I do a search on Google for venereal disease I see no ads along with the results. To me, this is generally an indication that it will be difficult to monetize a site in the content network with AdSense if there are no ads showing with Google's search results.

It's legal to have sex at 16 in the UK.
