Chrome will soon block virtually all ads to web sites Google does not like
by Jim Stone
They claim only types of ads that will work will be ones like for the gun company (above) but I’d be willing to bet that they are going to have people scouring the web looking for totally benign ads like that one and banning them on an individual basis. and I would bet even that ad does not work now. It probably goes to a mirror. The ad above is only an animated gif with a link.
PREDICTION: Since we all know from past behavior that Google’s only intent is to destroy alt media, totally harmless picture ads will definitely be banned, but they won’t admit to that yet. To accomplish this they will launch an AI to scour sites like this one, looking for pictures that are links and then simply not letting them load. It will also evolve to looking for pictures that have text associated with them or embedded in them, so you can’t use any form of advertising whatsoever. They are not announcing that yet, but they will. Just give them a few years to drop their acid.
Here is what the upcoming Google ad ban means right now, this February:
If you managed to get ads from a secondary provider after Google banned you from Adsense (what Google does to sites that tell the truth,) Google will now ban your new ad provider and de-fund you that way. IF YOU WANT YOUR ADS TO WORK, YOU HAVE TO PAY GOOGLE TO LET THEM WORK via a third-party shell organization they set up. This also applies to sites like Infowars, which sells its own products, and issues the ads for those products from its own server. If Google does not want them to show up on your site, they won’t. They are not saying how much they are going to extort people for (to allow the ads to load) yet but there is no question it is going to be deadly, if not now, in the future.
This may seem like I am sensationalizing things, but I am not. All one has to do is look at Google’s past behavior. First they banned people from Adsense. Now they are banning many “ad types” for people who have figured out how to make it without Adsense (unless, of course, Adsense itself sends that ad type). Those two steps are confirmed. The only step remaining will be to ban all ads google does not approve of, PERIOD, no matter how they are done. And if they can have an AI learn chess better than any grand master in hours, you can bet they can have that AI automatically wipe out all forms of revenue to any web site.
BY DENYING AD REVENUE THE WAY GOOGLE HAS, THEY ARE COMMITTING ACTS OF WAR THAT HAVE DIRECT POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES. IT IS THE NEW COLD WAR, AND IF IT DOES NOT BECOME A HOT ONE, WE ARE GOING TO GET CRUSHED.
They have become too brazen. They are begging for repercussions.
To see a whitewash on this topic click here. Yes, I don’t like the ad types they specifically mention, but there are 4 other ad types they do not mention that will also be blocked. Anyone with an ounce of wit ought to know what this is really about.
UPDATE TO THE ABOVE:
ACCORDING TO THIS DOCUMENT, IF YOU DO NOT “VOLUNTARILY” PAY YOUR EXTORTION MONEY OR MEET “STANDARDS” THEY DO NOT MENTION, ALL ADS OF ALL TYPES WILL BE BLOCKED ON YOUR SITE EVEN IF YOU ISSUE THEM YOURSELF.
From that document, which is an example of perfection in “leave out all relevant details” legal sleaze, they are simply going to force people to “voluntarily” get their web sites certified by a central agency and if they do not, all ads of any form will be banned on it by their browser or whatever other technology is available to make it happen. I was right in my original statement above – this is a political move where a central panel will decide what sites live and what sites do not.
