CNBC is reporting that the Google Advertising Ban on Adult domain names is now in effect.
Today CNBC is reporting that “Google is getting out of the porn advertising business”.
The changes, which went into effect late Monday, prohibit any promotion of most sexually themed sites, specifically those that feature “graphic sexual acts with intent to arouse including sex acts such as masturbation.”
A company spokesperson noted that Google has long had restrictive policies on its adult category for some time and expected many advertisers had already looked to other advertising venues. ”
I haven’t heard much about this in any industry blogs or from parking companies.
We will be watching some of our own domain names and see what the effect of this is.
