Google Attacking Us & Our Users Again

It seems Google just can’t get enough of squashing small competition to YouTube at every possible chance. From the meteoric rise of their video hosting service during each and every one of the “Panda” updates to deleting our blog a day after we announced that we would allow users to earn money on their videos through Google’s own Adsense system, big G is doing everything in their immense power to keep the video market as fragmented as possible to keep YouTube on top.

When the blog was erased we were not told anything, even when Google’s Matt Cutts tweeted me directly asking what the blog was that was deleted there was nothing but silence. That was the entire reason we moved to WordPress. After our move I discovered that Google’s Blogger kept up a blog that literally scrapes us and posts content. And now, apparently Google has stopped serving ads on our website completely.

According to our own Adsense reports as of November 26th, 2011 there is absolutely zero data in our account for ad impressions. There is absolutely no notifications about any issues on the login and there was nothing emailed. I spent the last few days trying to figure out what we had done wrong to break the ad code following Google’s troubleshooting and yet I see no issues with the code running.

That leaves one simple option left. Someone at Google’s Adsense decided to stop serving ads on our website and not say why. This is common place in Google’s world, as in our infancy we were once told that Google had different policies for YouTube advertising than for every other video website on the planet.

I am still working around the clock to get this fixed so your videos can get back to earning money. Hopefully this is not something that was done on purpose and is an accident that Google can clear up if/when I can ever contact someone.

  1. Report your issue to the Federal Trade Commission. They are building a case against Google and Adsense specifically for Disabling Publisher accounts without reason and no recourse and no communication.

    We’ll be posting an update soon to the blog, but the problem appears to be horrendous miscommunication on Google’s end.
