In the beginning, Google had a pretty good grasp on what ads appeared where. Although, Youtube, has grown excessively over the years and has since caused such monitoring to extensively decline.
“We know that this is unacceptable to the advertisers and agencies who put their trust in us,” Philipp Schindler, Google’s chief business officer, wrote in a Tuesday blog post.
Advertisers, uh, weren’t feeling the love. Everybody from Verizon; AT&T, HSBC, The Bank of Scotland, and numerous others have pulled the plug on advertisements.
We are deeply concerned that our ads may have appeared alongside YouTube content promoting terrorism and hate,” AT&T said in a statement. “Until Google can ensure this won’t happen again, we are removing our ads from Google’s non-search platforms.”
