AdSense, 10 Years Old and My 72-Hour Warning

AdSense, Google's affiliate advertising product for publishers is 10 years old and I just received a warning from them that one of my sites, padfly.com, does not conform to their policies and I have 3 "working" days to clean it up or else they would block their ads on that site forever. Should I cheer or jeer?

For some time AdSense has stated that web pages on sex, violence, gambling, racial matters and other such topics are off limits for their product. padfly.com is not inherently notorious, but because people can create public pages and save any text data to them, some of the pages will inevitably have objectionable content. Policing that site is just not practical.

I have been with Adsense almost since its inception and would certainly not want to raise the ire of Google. It pays enough to cover the cost of running this site. I can also understand why Google would not want to taint its product with pages and sites that are not family friendly. At least they gave a warning instead of abruptly killing my account.

So dear AdSense folks, happy 10th and to comply with your rules I pulled Adsense from padfly.com completely. Fair enough?

Yahoo Earnings Check

It seems like at some point I had signed up for Yahoo Publisher Network (YPN) which was a program similar to Google's Adsense. Yahoo terminated the program recently and apparently they sent final checks (or is it cheques? Whatever) to all affiliates, active or not.

I just happened to find my Yahoo check in a pile of mail today and it was for a whopping $0.00. I wonder what my bank's reaction would be if I try to deposit it.

Since it has become customary for site owners to post pictures of their affiliate checks to prove their earnings, here's a picture of my Yahoo check. See, now you believe me? 🙂
