Google will no more allow pornographic content on apps available on Google Play.
In a recent decision by Google, it has changed its ads guidelines, which puts a full stop on any sexual content. As per a CNBC report, Google sent an email communication to AdWords partners found running indecent ads in the month of June. It also says that those partners, who continue to go forward without following the suggestion will be disapproved.
The report also quotes a Google spokesperson saying “The company had strict restrictive policies on its adult category for some time and expected advertisers to find other advertising venues”. The email forwarded to AdWords partners was- “Beginning in the coming weeks, we’ll no longer accept ads that pushes graphic depictions of sexual acts which includes hardcore pornography; graphic sexual acts including masturbation; genital, anal and oral sexual activity. When we make changes, Google will disapprove all adverts and sites that are identified as being in violation of our revised policy”.
Google does not allow pornographic content on apps available on Google Play. Apple also follows the same policy related to the sexual content. This development suggests that Google sidelined itself from adult business, however, it continues to index pornographic websites. But, it is highly doubtful that Google will completely ban porn from its search results.
