Gambling For Fun Adverts Now Disallowed By Google AdWords UK
I reported this morning at the Search Engine Roundtable that UK Google AdWords advertisers are being notified by Google that they can no longer accept ads for any kind of gambling site. That includes gambling sites that are just for fun, have tutorials on gambling and content related to gambling.
In an email, Google said, “We will no longer take ads for sites that promote gambling related content or gambling tutorials or whose primary purpose is ‘playing for fun’, gambling or casino games of skill.” Google added that these new rules are “simpler for everyone to understand and more in tune with users’ wishes.”
