According to the policy, it will block all the advertisements related to "cryptocurrencies and related content". The company suspended 7,000 customer accounts for ads that impersonated a news article, what Google calls "tabloid cloaking" and blocked more than 12,000 websites for copying information from other publications.
Stansfield revealed that many website owners used the firm's advertising platforms, like AdSense, to run Google ads on their sites and content and make money.She said Google paid $12.6 billion back to the publishing partners in its ad network previous year.
Search giant Google has said it will change its financial product policy in June this year, a move that will see advertisements related to cryptocurrency effectively banned. Some aggressive businesses found a loophole: purposely misspelling words like "bitcoin" in their ads. In it, the company says it has updated its policies to "tackle emerging threats", and classifies cryptocurrencies under "unregulated or speculative financial products".

Google shared today that the company's ads team killed 3.2 billion so-called "bad ads" in 2017, an increase of 88 percent from the previous year, when the company removed 1.7 billion "bad ads". That's up from 1.7 billion in 2016. Last year, we were able to remove more bad actors from our ad ecosystem than ever before, and at a faster rate.
The Google ads team emphasized that advertisers need to value "respecting the user experience more than the ads". In fact, after expanding our policy against unsafe and derogatory content in April 2017 to cover additional forms of discrimination and intolerance, we removed Google ads from 8,700 pages that violated the expanded policy.
