There’s no feature that will prevent blind users from viewing their own ads on their websites, and block “spam clicks from inflating total ad clicks, and they don’t have a function to block spam impressions from affecting the advertiser’s ads displayed on websites where blind site owners monetize content. This is a nightmare waiting to happen for all blind webmasters who were monetizing content on their websites.
Okay, if you don’t know what Google AdSense is… its an ad provider that enables you to monetize content on your website. It was used by everyday people from all over the world,–except for certain countries that were sanctioned by the USA. However, if you were an individual who is blind and you were just busy monetizing your site, and write new content, and you discovered your content has no ads anymore… most likely Google AdSense has unlawfully banned your account. This is a common problem what we ever had today. Filing for an appeal is misleading, and that can cause you to be screwed by AdSense itself. This ad provider has been neglecting individuals for many years,–after it was established. Some people don’t like ads by Google because, they track your activity, and spy on your browsing activity, or in some cases, malware.
The moment you were about to place ads on your website… your ads begin to appear,–after your site is approved for advertisers. But you used a Google Publisher Toolbar to view ads what you were seeing on your website. Well, you don’t want to risk opening an ad to see the landing page. But what you’re about to face… if possible dangers when using AdSense while you’re blind!
These possible dangers what I discovered when using AdSense may be lurking, around when using this ad provider. I’ve studied these dangers what you’ve never heard of… or seen before!
No feature to prevent yourself from opening your own ads on your website
Nobody wants to commit click-fraud, or other unlawful schemes. Google AdSense has failed to meet certain guidelines provided by ADA, or any other laws that require ad providers to make it easier for blind webmasters to rely on their service. Easy to use tax info submission tools, sandbox ad viewers for websites, hide ads from blind webmaster’s browser by providing a toolbar that enables the blind webmaster to view details of the ad without needing to worry about spam clicks, accidental clicks, and high levels of attacks caused by clickbots. There’s no assistive monetization that complies with standards to enable the blind webmaster to take financial responsibility by relying on real time earnings,–along with assistive holds for the purpose of preventing spam clicks, and attacks by bots.
If the website that is owned by a blind owner receives traffic organically… and many ads were viewed many times, most advertisers pay for organic views of their ads. However; Google AdSense has been doing this backwards,–mistreating users by unlawfully banning their accounts, and stealing their legitimate earnings. This form of a corporate crime has been committed by Google AdSense for years. This is one example of dangers of using Google AdSense on your website. Some of these advertisers has been tricked to receive their funds back to their payment cards. And some advertisers didn’t know they were relying on that website built by a blind person. There’s no such program that rely on 1-on-1 programs for special monetization, subscription-based monetization, cost per view monetization, cost per action monetization, cost per playback monetization, braille ads for braille displays, ad pickers for readers who were interested in ads that are relevant to a category/topic/subject… meaning a site visitor is presented with an ad selector box, audio ads for the blind site visitors, and more. These features hasn’t been developed for the past years.
Nobody wants to unintentionally click on their own ads as they view their site to check if their ads were placed in the right spot! There’s no such script that prevent anyone from opening these ads,–if you were a blind webmaster. However; you can work around this problem by turning on an ad-blocking software to prevent yourself from clicking on your own ads. If you want to prevent anybody else from causing accidental clicks to your ads… always place your ads inside a <div> container, and place a title “Advertisement” or “Sponsored Links” above the ad unit. Never ask anyone on your website to click on any of your ads ran by Google AdSense, or any other ad providers.
All image-based ads don’t have an alt tag embedded,–making it easier for blind users to figure out what ad is displayed on their websites. Google has written basic practices for webmasters who must comply with accessibility laws. Even 1 violation may lead to fines, or mandatory orders via the local authorities, or court-order. If your ads on your site has been infected with pornography, or potentially unwanted sexual content… most likely advertisers has circumvented these exclusions what you’ve implemented. Nobody don’t want to view porn-based ads on a non-adult website!
Discrimination via level of earnings
This is common,–found in Google AdSense support articles
Blind users who were earning less money didn’t even have a chance to get specialized support when relying on monetization services via AdSense. This is standard by most ad providers via the advertising industry.
No emergency audit,–due to high levels of bot attacks
Blind users has no protection against bot attacks, Google AdSense didn’t even lift even one click, or impression from these attacks found on their lazy software that can’t do specialized services for the blind. Not even 1 employee via Google AdSense has worked with a blind webmaster who has trouble with these ads displayed on these websites owned by them. What I mentioned earlier 1-on-1 programs are NOT available. If Google AdSense has a built-in emergency audit service for the blind… that will prevent fraud from happening in the first place! This is still a problem for blind site owners.
There’s no “freedom of monetization” specialized program
Google AdSense’s unlawful censorship of content,–even created organically by actual webmasters is the known sign of corporate crime. This unlawful scheme has been infecting bloggers, and other talented webmasters who were blind. Unlawful ban of their domains is the known form of neglect what Google AdSense don’t want you to bring to light! If you were the blind site owners… watch out… Google AdSense doesn’t make any sense.
What you should do?
You may need to sue Google AdSense for these unlawful account terminations that aren’t reasonable. It may be challenging to take Google AdSense to Court,–due to corruption. If you were luck enough; be sure to provide evidence when suing Google.
File a complaint with the FTC, or the BBB, or any other service that will help you. They take your complaints very seriously.
You may need to rely on special ad-managing programs for your site. If you were using WordPress… various plugins are available to help yourself manage your own ads, and cut out use of third party ad networks. Some plugins incluse payment platform integrations. For example… PayPal. If it has this feature, you may need to sign up for an account, you have to link a bank too. If you were unbanked… store-based debit cards are available to use for your account.
Go to the AdSense Help forums, and tell them what is actually happening, you must bring all of these issues what you encountered to light. Keep speaking up, until you can get help.
Don’t do any business with AdSense altogether,–if any of the above fails. But you can still run your own ads. You may need to rely on a payment platform that will help you receive payments. Be sure to check if any of these payment platforms support the unbanked.
Protect yourself against copyfraud, and other fraudulent copyright-claim attacks that are indeed unlawful on YouTube.
If Google AdSense is ordered to implement special monetization via a court-order, varify if Google AdSense is complying as a court that helped with your case expected to do so. If not… a violation has occurred.
Use a different ad provider. Chitika is the known ad provider that is an alternative to Google AdSense. That requires you to have a varified PayPal account. You may need to check if you have a dedicated banking account for your earnings to pour in as you use this ad provider. But don’t click on your own ads. Keep in mind Chitika ads use RTB-based ads to monetize your website. Enabling an ad-blocking software on your site is helpful to prevent impression fraud from happening. It may take some time for you to earn some of these dollars,–depending on how much times these ads were viewed on your website.
Why replace AdSense ads with Chitika ads?
