    Question What is Google (BIG G) Playing At !!! - Continued From My Warning Post

    Ok, as many of you may have read I had a issue with Google about AdSense on my gambling site! Luckily I managed to halt Google from suspending my AdSense account and confiscating my earned revenues!

    After posts from different members in my last thread (warning post) I thought I would raise this point for your thoughts etc

    ........................................

    We all know that Google AdSense works by displaying contents / ads that are relevant to the contents within the website it is being shown on!

    When I talked to Google on the phone they made it clear that AdSense was not allowed on any gambling related sites whatsoever......

    They also highlighted that that if your site is linked (a non-gambling related website) to gambling related sites this would also cause a suspension of further AdSense should you be found out!

    I find it amusing really as you can advertise through AdWords if you have a gambling site and yet you cannot display AdSense (which follows page contents to determine what is shown) on a gambling related / linked site!!!

    It seems that it you use google AdWords you will be on a lose or possibly have no effect to sales on your website (from AdWords) as the gambling ads will only appear on gambling related / focused and not on regular sites (non gambling - due to the content relevance)......

    I think this wrong and a issue that Google needs to address and adjust

    First of all, not just anyone can advertise gambling sites on Google.

    And yes it is a small bit of a catch 22.
