    Absolutely but we aren't talking about joe blogs IT worker for google who understands that sending BH an email, it would have been generated by their systems where there's no human being there to apply logic to the scenario.

    I can appreciate what you are saying A-Squared, and agree to a point.

    The issue is what they have categorised as in violation ...

    Google ads may not be placed on adult or mature content. This includes pages which contain 'some sexual health advice related to pregnancy, childbirth or family'

    my issue is which google ad's considering sexual health, pregnancy or childbirth in the category of 'adult content'.

    I see what you're saying here too, but google aren't able to interpret images if the images aren't tagged properly. So albeit BH is a safe site free of graphic images of STDs or videos of live births with women in all their glory giving birth etc, google systems don't know that is the case so BH automatically becomes excluded IYKWIM.

    it wasnt auto though A-Squared. The blog was from 2012.


    And considering some of the ads that have been placed on our site by google ad's, I find it incredibly hypocritical.

    I remember one particular ad by Lynx of a near naked woman dancing on the top of a deoderant bottle in a manner that was highly inappropriate .... but a discussion about sexual health is "too adult"

    In relation to sites they consider adult or mature content - there are 2 categories .. 'photos and videos', and 'pages' ... so the pages do not have to contain images to be in violation. Just include a discussion about 'sexual health advice related to pregnancy, childbirth or family'

    Ah okay, I thought they only made that differentiation with regard to the type of ad placed (images / flash or just text) not the type of site.

    Go ahead with your google bashing everyone!

    yeah I do wonder about that - they certainly have over the time I have been here, given us some pretty dodgy ads.

    I think that is what annoyed me the most ... the pure hypocrisy of them saying OUR website was inappropriate considering the types of ads they think are ok
