A few years ago, I worked on a web site that was getting huge traffic from Google’s AdSense program.
That meant that it was using Google’s own ad network.
That program has a “tough cookie” policy.
AdSense is essentially Google’s advertising system for apps, and Google’s policy states that it will only show ads for things that are explicitly requested by the user.
Google said that if you ask for an app that does a lot of things that it can’t do on its own, then Google will show it.
The problem with this was that AdSense was not showing me any ads that were specifically requested by me.
The ads I was seeing were a mix of “sponsored” ads that didn’t say “Google AdSense,” and ads that said “AdSense sponsored” and were just “ad-free.”
Google didn’t tell me what kind of ads they were showing, but I did notice that they were not appearing on my page at all.
And that wasn’t the only time.
I found myself seeing ads from Google for apps that I didn’t ask for.
Google told me that this was a problem with their AdSense system.
“If you want to know more, we can show you what we are doing, but for now, we have you covered,” a Google rep told me.
This wasn’t Google’s fault.
I wrote a letter to Google and said that I needed an explanation.
The next day, Google told my editor that they would need to investigate.
“I need to ask Google if they are making a mistake in not showing ads for the ads you requested,” my editor wrote.
Google replied that they did not.
But that wasn and they said that this could happen again, so they asked me to get a new set of AdSense cookies and ask them to stop showing those ads for ads I did request.
My editor suggested that I write to Google to make sure that they knew that I wanted to report this.
Google did not respond to this letter, but it did say that they had contacted me about this issue.
Google’s stance seems clear.
They are not going to show me ads that I requested for an AdSense-sponsored app.
So I wrote to Google asking that they stop showing ads from the Google AdSense network for apps I requested to get high performance.
Google responded that they have no plans to do so.
Google does not want to be seen as discriminating against apps that request ads.
I didn, however, want Google to get rid of all the ads from my app, so I asked them to show them for ads that had already been shown to me.
Google confirmed that they are indeed showing ads to apps that they do not have a license to show.
Google explained that it doesn’t have a problem showing ads that are specifically requested, and that the ads that they use are “very good.”
But if you are trying to do something new, you should ask for a lot more of them.
“Google doesn’t want you to ask for ads to be shown that you do not want,” my Editor wrote.
“But the ads Google shows are very good and should be there.
Google is not a bad company, and they are not trying to discriminate against any app.
You can ask for more.
They don’t want to show ads you do want.
You might even be able to get them to change their policy so that they show more ads.”
I contacted Google and asked about their position on ads for AdSense ads that have already been used.
Google was not interested in discussing the issue.
I did ask them if they could tell me if they had seen any instances where they had not shown AdSense apps for the requests I made.
Google wrote back that they didn’t.
Google also did not answer a question about whether they were allowing users to request that they be shown ads that aren’t for Google.
So for the moment, I am left with a blank slate for apps to ask their Adsense ads to show in order to get good performance.
This is not an issue that I am going to let go of.
It is frustrating to have to do that work again, and I’m not willing to do it for a company that I have worked with for nearly a decade.
