    Default Questions about google

    Google closed blogs from blogger in the past if they were casino affiliates?
    What was the reason to do that?
    I ask you this because I have hosting on blogger that redirects to my own domain.
    Should I be worried about google look like Zeus and us small affiliates like mortals?

    Google's Terms of Service specifically forbid promoting online gambling... to the USA.

    In Europe and Asia Google's policy's are different.

    So promoting gambling that happens in Europe for example is ok, but not US books? Or do you have to use a blogger from Europe for it to be ok?

    I Believe in Europe Google allows only licensed operators into Adwords/Adsense.

    This is sort of correct... Rather complicated procedure to be able to bid on searches for gambling related keywords like sending copy of license etc.

    However, I have noted affiliate results in paid searches, and don't know how they do it, but I assume they just stay clear of the keywords that Google connects with gambling (like casino, poker etc.)

    How does it define whether the blogger is targeting UK market or US market. I mean a blog belonging to a person in UK can still be seen by someone in USA. So, what's the criteria for banning?

    You can target gambling related terms in adwords without an operator license as long as you run an "Aggregator" website.

    Google just won't show online gambling related addword adds in the US biased on IP addresses for PC's and Geolocation for Mobiles.

    Google don't care if your in the US and visit a UK site about online gambling(or vice versa), google just won't show the person in the US the addwords online gambling adds.

    Google is avoiding so many taxes... so... is good to "take care" of gambling, pills and porn.... for the masses which are dumb ass **** .. if you understand what I mean...
    just pay attention which sites you promote...
