The search giant blocked about 800m ads from its online ad networks in 2015 as it continued to fight advertising fraud. Google announced that it disabled over 780 million ads in 2015, which is about 50% increase from 2014. The company also promised to make a major focus on intensifying the efforts to fight back against bots – software that mimics the behavior of Internet users – in 2016.
Google officially announced that this year it was going to implement updates – for example, it will further restrict what can be advertised as effective for weight loss and add new protections against malware and bots. The company is committed to make sure all the adverts seen by the users are helpful and welcome and promised to keep fighting to make that a reality.
This announcement was made amid rising scrutiny and criticism by advertisers of the real efficiency of ad campaigns run across Google’s networks. In response, Google explained that its fight with “bad” ads last year in 2015 focused on blocking ads carrying malware, promoting fake products or weight-loss scams, or phishing for personal data by financial fraudsters. Its representatives said that a combination of computer algorithms and experts reviewing ads were used to block the vast majority of the adverts before they ever got shown. Now Google invested in sophisticated technology and created a team of more than 1,000 people engaged in fighting “bad” ads.
Here is some statistics on the “bad” ads crackdown last year: the company stopped displaying advertisements on over 25,000 mobile applications due to policy violations. Google also said it rejected over 1.4 million apps from website and app developers trying to run Google ads without following policies. It also rejected more than 17m ads that misled or tricked people into clicking on them, including those pretending to be system warnings. The company suspended over 10,000 websites and 18,000 accounts for trying to sell counterfeit products. It banned over 12.5 million ads for breaking the rules on advertising healthcare and medical products, over 30,000 websites for making misleading weight-loss claims, about 7,000 websites for phishing for web users’ personal data, and disabled over 10,000 websites offering unwanted software.

|Gates i dont like your comment and simply must reply to you. Not only cant you spell correctly and have a issue with your capitals lock button (which is located on your keyboard) but you are also wrong about the site promoting garbage ads and false ads. What you actually have is a problem with your browser that pops up silly adverts not owned or supported by ET. FIX YOUR COMPUTER! fix your computer and don't blame extra torrent. we all get these pop ups and they occur all over the internet on many sites. The uploaders, mods, people that run the site, this is not a con, its a service for the world. before you next comment gates, get the facts straight, cheers.||
