Google took down 2.3 billion bad ads, 1 million ad accounts in 2018

Marketing Land | March 14, 2019

Google took down 2.3 billion “bad ads” in 2018, according to its annual report on actions it took to address policy violations on its ad platforms. That’s about a million fewer ads than it removed in 2017. However, the ad giant said the number of advertiser accounts it terminated last year nearly doubled from the previous year to nearly one million. Sectors targeted for clean up. For-profit bail bond services, addiction treatment services, third-party tech support, ticket resellers, cryptocurrency and some local services such as garage door repair topped the list of sectors Google focused on in 2018. It banned bail bond ads effective July 2018 and restricted ads for addiction treatment services to those certified by LegitScript (after suspending them in 2017). Thirty-one new policies went on the books to address abuses by the other industries listed. On the publisher front. Some 734,000 publisher and app developers were removed from its ad network, and ads were removed entirely from nearly 1.5 million apps, Google said. In 2017, Google added the ability to identify and remove ads from specific web pages that violate its publisher policies, rather than removing ads from an entire site. With that technology, coupled with manual reviews, the company said it removed ads from more than 27 million pages that violated its policies last year. The spread and monetization of fake news and misinformation has been a focus for the platforms — and lawmakers — for more than two years now. Google added new policies in 2017, and highlighted its efforts in this year’s report, noting it took down ads on roughly 1.2 million pages, 22,000 apps and 15,000 sites for violating policies around misrepresentative, hateful or low-quality content. Google also launched election ads policy in the U.S. ahead of the midterm elections last year and created a political ads transparency report to provide more information about who bought election ads. It said it verified nearly 143,000 election ads in the U.S. Why you should care. Bad actors impact every aspect of the digital ecosystem. For good advertisers, they can affect campaign performance and brand safety. Many YouTube advertisers would argue the company still has work to do in policing its own backyard. As the dominant leader in digital advertising, Google is the primary gatekeeper of how and which types of ads appear online.

Google Avails Privacy Sandbox Ad Targeting for Global Trials

Google | April 04, 2022

Google has announced the next stage of Privacy Sandbox testing for ad relevance and measurement purposes. Starting 31 March 2022, developers all over the globe can test Topics, FLEDGE and Attribution Reporting APIs in Chrome's Canary version. The Sandbox is a new ad targeting stack that Google has bought to replace cookies tracking-based targeted Chrome advertising. There had been concerns about the collection of user data despite Google's frequent additions of privacy-focused features in its products and services. Google's recently announced "Privacy Sandbox" initiative proposes multiple components such as, Topics: In late January 2022, Google announced to replace the much-criticized antecedent FLoC (Federated Learning of Cohorts) with 'Topics’-which is Google's idea for Interest-Based ad targeting of user's web activity. FLEDGE: The FLEDGE component of Privacy Sandbox is a proposal to serve remarketing and custom use cases. It prevents third parties from tracking users' browsing behavior across sites. Attribution Reporting API: Attribution Reporting is Google's solution to eliminate dependency on the cross-party user identifier. With this component of Privacy Sandbox, the third parties can't track the user browsing behavior across sites, and the advertisers can measure the ad's conversion through ad clicks or views. In their recent blog, Google mentioned that they are looking forward to the feedback from the companies for continuous improvement in their APIs. And with time, it will broadly avail APIs in Chrome while allowing more developers to integrate, evaluate, and provide feedback. Furthermore, Google promises continuous optimization based on the developers' various use cases. Google also plans to test its updated Privacy Sandbox settings and controls. This update allows users to see and manage their interests. They can also opt out of the trials altogether. The Privacy Sandbox proposals have already benefited substantially from the thoughtful feedback of early testers, and we're eager to open up testing for more of our proposals. We'll continue to gather feedback from the ecosystem and to engage with regulators globally, including through our work with the UK's Competition and Markets Authority in line with our commitments for the Privacy Sandbox on the web. -Vinit Goel, Product Director, Privacy Sandbox, Chrome. In a blog post by Vinit Goel, Product Director, Privacy Sandbox, Chrome, mentioned that Google benefits from the early testers' feedback and works with the UK's Competition and Market Authority.
