Is This the End of Adsense for Autobloggers?
Shocking news has been announced by Google Adsense Team lately about autoblog (unoriginal content).
“We don’t allow sites with auto-generated or otherwise unoriginal content to participate in the AdSense program. This is to ensure that our users are benefiting from a unique online experience and that our advertisers are partnering with useful and relevant sites.”
Cecelia Choi – AdSense Policy team
Yes, it mean that you no longer can put your Adsense ads on your autoblog. I recently read discussion in some forum and the respond is “objection”. If there are so many objection, means that there are so many autoblog and there are so many “lazy blogger” too (LOL). But there are some positive respond. Of course the positive respond come from blogger who has unique content on their blogs.
Below are responds and questions about this news:
# “Thanks! This gives us the reason to say NO to auto blogging / auto posting robots / plugins”
# “Thanks for thanking me for my great, unique, and creative content. ”
# “amazing, the google adsense is more protected”
# “Fact: We don’t allow sites with auto-generated or otherwise unoriginal content to participate in the AdSense program. This is to ensure that our users are benefiting from a unique online experience and that our advertisers are partnering with useful and relevant sites.
This makes me laugh … are you kidding??
The biggest scraper websites on internet like www.fanpop.com, www.flash-screen.com, www.graphicshunt.com and www.blingcheese.com are still with Google ads and they still stealing and scraping everything from medium and small websites with original content ! They never got banned for violations TOS of Google and Google Adsense… that’s hypocritical.
Even bigger problem is wallpapersonweb.com which literally hotlinking and stealing someones images for a months and they still running a google ads ??!!
Aaand … the biggest joke is this website : http://www.wallconvert.com/
They are actually source ( script ) for most of hotlinking scraper websites and they HAVE Google ads.
C’mon … How about telling us truth without “good” wishes ???
I sense high level of hypocrisy here, anyone else ?
Dear Ms. Cecelia Choi , I would like to get answers on my questions if you have such a concerns about unoriginal content . I bet everyone those .
# “Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to actually work. Today, it’s way easier to steel content (also automatically), than get it removed from a violating site. I came across auto-generated sites that run AdSense all the time, most of them violate the policies. Battling user-generated sites that steel content is even harder.”
# “Umm, so if I would own Google Search I wouldn’t be allowed to use adsense on the search result pages because the whole content is scraped?
Isn’t there something like scraped in a way that is helpful for the users e.g. Google News?”
# “There are google ads in gmail when I receive product emails from Amazon, and that certainly is not original content because it can be found on Amazon, so …”
# “What about aggregators? Sites that aggregate a specific type of content (i.e. job offers, real state listings, news…) coming from multiple other online sources.
That is not original content, but it is allowed to have AdSense in them, right?”
# how about content Jobs information, my blog conten is jobs information without auto generated content.. and al information is valid.. but Copy Paste from other blog… it’s ok or not..”
