Question Google AdSense to Readmit Adult Domains?

Google Contacts Partners: We will Continue to Allow Adult Monetization of Domains

Quote:
In a reversal of Google’s policy regarding Adult monetization for domains, Google is contacting its partners and letting them know that adult domains will continue to be allowed in the Google Adsense for Domains program.

“We are committed to maintaining a positive experience for end users and advertisers, in addition to partners. We have determined that continuing to allow adult domains in the program will be beneficial for advertisers and users, and our domain partners. In the coming months, we will continue to improve our policy on the technical implementation of adult domains, but we will continue to allow adult domains in the program for the forseeable future.”
Google AdSense to Readmit Adult Domains

What's the story with this? I thought Adult domains were against the TOS? Does this mean changes for parked adult names?

Re: Google AdSense to Readmit Adult Domains?

Hi Alex,

Google contacted it partners a while back telling them that they wouldn't allow adult names to be included in the AFD (Adsense for domain) feeds - which is tech-lingo for "parking". They were going to end the adult side of monetization at the end of May but have contacted AFD partners to let them know that they have reversed their decision.

Just for clarification, sites like Namedrive, Skenzo, parked.com, revenuedirect, etc use either a google or yahoo ad set up. So for any program that is using google as the up-stream provider, will now continue to allow adult ads. Sedo, for example announced 2 weeks ago that they wouldn't be allowing adult domains, and this was the reason why. Sedo may announce that you can monetize adult names now that google has changed their mind.

Hope that helps.

More evidence that the greed prerogative is in the ascendency.
