Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
It seems one of my staff submitted a new site (adult) with some wrong words on the site, and their editorial folks decided that they had one too many violations of their T & C's (which is fair enough). I am in no way bemoaning Google's right to ensure that sites that advertise on their network meet their guidelines. My staff member submitted the site, but it was my responsibility 100%.
And here is what Yahoo does better than Google. With Yahoo you submit a site, and they review it and say yes or no. No violations - no arguments. No problems.
Quite simple really.
But Google has their systems, and I have to fire several staff because of the losses to my cash flow, plus I risk losing my business as my charge back thresholds could jump too high for my merchant account.
I have always recommended everyone I knew to use Google, but now I'm not so sure?
By the way - if anyone knows where I could spend my 2 - 3k a week on adult traffic, please hit me up downunderdan666 at yahoo dawt com
(PS - nearly every one of my sites was in violation with Google when they changed their rules on Teen Porn Concepts. My designers over the many years built hundreds of sites for me which were littered with words like "teen" and "barely legal"
It too me ages to go through each and every site for Google, and in the meantime I got nailed.
Just a shame really.
Google doesnt give you a list of banned keywords, and also does not give you a list of sites they don't allow
As time goes on and people who buy porn online get more used to it being free, adult website owners like myself have to push niches that are a little more left field like BDSM etc.
The lines between the editorial departments and what the consumers want then become blurred
For the record all my sites have models that were 18+ at the time of filming. All were consenting adults and no animals were used either
(Note: I am also an adult website owner that DOES not want to resort to trapping consumers with 3 extra memberships on their credit cards they don't know about, or stick them with SpyWare. What sickens me is that so many sites in Googles AdWords hammer consumers with SpyWare and mega hidden multiple memberships, and get away with it every day).
really - what is worse - spyware or me with a pissing site?
