Google makes changes to AdSense to increase transparency for publishers

Ads
Google has announced 2 significant changes to its AdSense network today which promises to increase transparency about how it deals with violations and removes ads from websites.
  • First, AdSense’s technology has been changed so it can now remove ads from individual pages, instead of entire websites. Previously, Google usually removed ads from every page on a website after a policy violation, instead of just the pages with offending content.
  • Second, Google will launch a platform in a few weeks called the “Policy Center” to help website publishers understand the program’s rules and fix violations more quickly.
In a post on The Keyword, one of Google’s official blogs, Scott Spencer, the company’s director of sustainable ads, wrote
“as we roll out page-level policy action as the new default for content violations, we’ll be able to stop showing ads on select pages, while leaving ads up on the rest of a site’s good content. We’ll still use site-level actions but only as needed. And when it’s necessary, such as in the case of egregious or persistent violations, we’ll still terminate publishers. Altogether, this means fewer disruptions for publishers.”

Of course, this also means less disruption and more money for Google, since it shares revenue from AdSense with publishers.

AdSense’s new Policy Center will give publishers information about how many violations their sites have, what issues triggered ad removals, and step-by-step instructions about how to fix the problem so they can start displaying ads and making money again. Spencer referred to this as a “one-stop shop for everything a publisher needs to know about policy actions that affect their sites and pages.”

The Policy Center is intended for website publishers who use AdSense, but it is unclear how YouTubers who monetize their videos through the program will be affected.
