Google announced that in 2017 it removed more than 3.2 billion ads that did not comply with its advertising policies, which translates into more than 100 malicious ads per second.
This, according to the company, means that most of the malware (malware, phishing scams, etc.) was eliminated before attacking users. Google posted its annual bad account report last year, which includes the number of ads deactivated and the number of malicious sites that were removed in 2017.
The company says it has contributed significantly over the last 15 years to fighting advertising fraud and malware and content. 2017, was the year when most of the malicious ads were removed by Google from any other year before. Specifically, according to figures it cited last year, it removed 320,000 advertisers from its advertising network and blacklisted nearly 90,000 sites and 700,000 mobile apps. Still, in 2017 it removed about two million websites a month.
The company said it paid a total of $12.6 billion to partners in its advertising network, providing online advertising space on their websites. But, according to Google,
“To make money from Google ads, you have to play with the rules, which means to respect the user experience more than the ads”.
