Google ads may not be placed on adult or mature content. This includes any site which contains:
pronographic images, videos, or games
pronographic cartoons or anime (hentai/ecchi)
For more information about keeping your content family-safe, please review our program guidelines and these tips from the policy team.
The AdSense network is considered family-safe, which means that publishers aren't permitted to place Google ads on sites which contain #*$!ography, adult, or mature content. If your site has content which you wouldn't be comfortable viewing at work or with family members around, then it probably isn't an appropriate site for Google ads.
When your company is as successful as Google is, then you can tell them what to do.
This constant idea that because google is successful they get to do whatever they want is absurd.
It's not necessarily just the fact that these pictures contain women in swim suits/bikinis, but our policy team also takes in to account the person's pose, cleavage exposure, and the general nature of the image (meaning is it meant to be sexually gratifying).
Although the "sexually gratifying" part is still very subjective.
The real problem behind that is the overly conservative mentality (for what's Google concerned in the USA) that's only growing and becoming far worse.
"Grandma Friendly" and grandma is extremely religious and easily offended is a more appropriate guideline.
Here's where it gets more confusing. If I Google "bikini girls" the results on the first page contain photos that would seem to violate Google's policies (close-ups of body parts with no faces, suggestive poses, women wearing pasties, etc). Yet some of these sites are very clearly serving Google ads. Are they getting a pass simply because no one has complained yet, or because of the ad revenue they generate?
I brought up on my previous post that a robot checks the site and not a real google employee
Make sure you remove all offending content. In some cases it is an image, sometimes it is an image and text. We manually review all appeals.
You do not need to contact us if you make changes.
There's a reason why they don't allow you to contact them when you make changes because the robot checks it automatically.
