Google Adsense and the Little Man

by Simon. Average Reading Time: less than a minute.

Google’s mantra of “Don’t Be Evil” is all well and good, but it doesn’t equate to “Always Be Good”!

I, like a vast number of websites, rely on Google Adsense for revenue, which in my case, compensates me for the material costs of running a website but not much more. To me that is OK, assuming Google actually pays up! My account has been set-up for several years, I have added my account details, etcetera etcetera. However, since they introduced the idea of a Pin, everyhting has fallen apart. Three requests for a pin have fallen on deaf ears, emailing the Adsense team has fallen on deaf ears! To add insult to injury, Google now only serve me Public Service Advertisements (PSA), which, unless you really care about hurricane relief whilst reading one of my inspiring blog entries, are not going to receive a single click!

So what can I do? Any suggestions would be gratefully received. For the moment, I will have to repeatedly email the Adsense team and hope for the best.

Google's 5 Privacy Principles

In honour [sic] of International Data Privacy Day today, 28th January 2010, Google has published their own guidlines on privacy. The timing of this is quite intriguing following the recent hacking attack, supposedly orchestrated by the Chinese authorities, on Google, Yahoo, Adobe and some 20 other major international corporations; whilst there is also the ongoing concern from many quarters about Google is too dominant in many aspects of our online lives.
