Scam Ads Removed by Google

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – More than ninety thousands ads containing scams have been removed by Google, the internet search giant recently disclosed.

Google made the announcement as part of its UK-based Transparency Report.

Such scam ads were contained within Google’s web search, YouTube, Blogger, Google Adwords, Google Video, and Google Images.

Removing the ads came after a request from the U.K.’s  Office of Fair Trading. The removal time ranged from July to December of last year.
