When I started this blog about 14 months ago I decided to use Google Adsense and put a few ads down one side of the blog. I am not sure why. It just seemed like a decent idea and I might make a bit of cash. Well as you all know unless people are continually clicking on your ads or you get like 1000 visitors per day you make almost nothing. It's not really worth it. I had thought a few times of taking them down but never really got around to it. Then today I get an email from them saying I have to remove the Battle of the Bloggers 5 badge as it infringes on their policy that their ads and gambling ads can't be on the same page. I guess nobody has told Google Adsense that poker isn't gambling. Of course we all know that they don't have that same opinion. So what did I do?? I removed the Google ads. That was easy.
There exact quote was this:
(As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to
place Google ads on sites with content related to gambling or casinos.
This policy includes driving traffic to online gambling sites through
links or advertisements).
I guess I will have to find other ways to supplement my income...............
