"Called ads sexist - was chided for porn distrubution"

2011-03-01Metro Sweden picked up on our ban from Google. Here's a machine translation of the article.

The Swedish advertising blog Adland.tv has been banned by Google Adsense, Dagens Media. This is because Google believes that her post is too daring.
- Well, apparently Google believes we serve our readers porn. I can not help but laugh, says Åsk Wäppling, the founder behind the site, to Dagens Media.
She has posted a picture of lingerie from Sloggis advertising campaign. This has been on the blog for about seven years and she has complained that the advertising is sexist, but Google thought the picture was too daring.
- I think that if someone now taken the trouble to visit my blog to look at the picture and then take this decision without even having read the text, so it feels quite strange. While I've seen Google ads on sites with far worse content, says ÅSk Wäppling to Dagens Media.
Google Adsense is a system that enables you to have ads on your site to match the content you have. The site will then be paid depending on how many times an ad is viewed or how many people click on it.
