Google’s Done With Internet Pornography

Google’s Done With Internet Pornography

One of Google’s most bold, yet controversial stances within their corporate policy has been their stance against pornographic material among their ad network.

I absolutely love that Google is taking a stance against the industry, and the declining of explicit content through their platform is the first step in cleaning up the web.

“Google recently sent an email alerting their advertisers – particularly pornography and other adult themed websites – that they will be implementing their new advertising policy which eliminates pornographic and sexually explicit ads. In addition, it seems Google will also no longer link to sites that contain such materials, no matter how benign their advertising.” - PornHarms.com

As a pastor, pornography is an addiction that I’ve helped many people find freedom from. This is a joyful day for anyone who sees the harm in which the porn industry provokes for its viewers, and for those involved in its cultivation.

And while it’s obvious that not every advertisement will get filtered out of their system immediately, it’s a great start regardless. Be praying for Google, their AdSense platform, and the changes being made within their company. This is a great day for the web.

    A step in the right direction for Google. To be applauded.

    Who cares what people google? I mean seriously.. Just because they don’t link the sites doesn’t mean people aren’t still going to watch it. They’ll just go somewhere else. What they’re doing is great and all but it’s not necessary.

      I think making a statement I necessary. If a huge company like Google does this then they are setting the bar and leading maybe a new revolution.

      Well lets agree to disagree on that point. However, I think you can agree the children that are being exploited need to be saved.

    Bc so many young people use google and are constantly having to navigate thru “crap” everyday…. This is nice to not have to be subjected to this … It doesn’t mean they need policing Bc they can’t they can’t help themselves….. They can’t! Bc youth and technology are so linked… It’s great to have this policy for those of us who are trying to raise kids with morals! Thank you google!

    Great job Google. Don’t give in. Stay strong for the cause. Maybe more of the internet will follow your lead.

    Could you show any data/announcements from Google that support this? I just tried googling it and find nothing. Snopes and Truthorfiction also don’t show anything. Thanks!!
