      Because in porn it’s consensual and enjoyed by both parties. They don’t want customers getting any ideas.

    Many sites have to get rid of adult content because of complains. Now what they are also going to blame porn sites for having porn?

        They are right, though. Noise pollution is real and harmful. If the venue can’t soundproof its walls then it should close.

          Noise pollution is harmful, but subject to an inverse-square law with regard to distance and not a big issue for people whose schedules are compatible with the venue’s hours. Seems to me who was there first should win that contest in most cases.

            The only aspect which should be taken into consideration is noise ordinance laws, honestly. If the venue exceeds them, they’re clearly at fault.

      It’s more of a major goof on googles part than anything bad. These big prudish companies will start to pull ads if they think their brand is at risk. Apple has had rumors of expanding their ad network so if Google keeps slipping they might step in.

      The headline leaves out the most important part. Ads aren’t only being shown on porn sites, but they’re also appearing on websites that are hosted by sanctioned countries (eg, Russia). If those websites are getting kickbacks from Google, that violates laws. The EU is already investigating it.

          You not caring about something is vastly different than a brand caring about something.

          Brands supposedly pushed Google in to the “adpocalypse” and other types of ad revenue purges. Why? Because supposedly their content was being shown next to uncouth content. Content still allowed on YouTube (read: less extreme than hardcore porn).

          So, now you tell me. Why should it be OK for Google to do what they constantly take money away from others over? And over less serious content, no less.

          It’s about the hypocrisy. If you cannot see any, you’re not looking. If you don’t care about hypocrisy, then you’re just a fucking idiot.

              It’s about what the advertisers themselves have said. They supposedly don’t want it. It matters fuck-all what you or me think.

              Dogs? What?

              Anyway, nobody’s saying certain sites shouldn’t be allowed to have ads. The issue is which ads are shown on which sites. Advertisers don’t want their ads showing up next to content that their target audience might consider offensive. They also don’t want to waste their ad budget showing ads to people who aren’t likely to respond to the ad. The ability to pair ads with content that appeals to a certain audience is the whole reason Google is such an effective advertising platform.

            Most mainstream brands don’t like to say they’re beyond willing to be associated with offensive stuff as long as it makes them money and they can pretend they aren’t associated with it. Google knows what they’re doing and they’re more than happy to take the bad press, which won’t effect them in any meaningful way.

    As usual, redditors lemmings commenting on an article they haven’t read. This isn’t just about your brand appearing on a standard porn site. It’s also about your brand appearing on disinformation sites like Breitbart. Also, if your ads appear on those sites, it means that very probably your money is ALSO going to those sites.

        I can’t say if I’d be swayed into a purchasing decision by a porn site ad for collars from a pet store or rope from a hardware store. But I would absolutely respect the hell out of them for it. (Actually, if a hardware store made a “build this!” style ad where you made some sort of kink hardware from a pick list and free plans, I might actually go for it, because I like crafts and kink.)

        Can you imagine the opportunities for novelty beds? Not just the newfangled memory foam ones or the adjustable base ones, but the ones with the slits and divots and cutouts for pillows that promise to solve all the problems with side sleepers and intense cuddlers? I don’t need any of that but I’d definitely be more receptive to one if I saw something interesting being done with them.

          Advertisers by media (ad space). That ad space is usually defined by parameters or attributes. It could be based on characteristics of the user, like demographic or audience (like car shoppers), but often has other criteria of content attributes, and that can be negative attributes, like no ad space on porn sites or on pages where my direct competitors also have ads. So when Google misrepresents that ad space to the advertiser that had those specific parameters on the deal, it’s a problem.

    Hold on a second.

    Someone saw these ads and thought “I should admit to my porn habits to spread this information that materially doesn’t affect me, but puts revenue in Googles wallet and probably doesn’t harm the big brands at all?”
