Dots| Google Adsense has banned ads about ‘cougars’ from its offering. Today’s NYTimes writes
The business impact of Google’s decision on cougarlife.com is ads will no longer appear on more than 6,700 Web sites, including Ask.com, YouTube and MySpace, which accounted for 60 percent of its traffic, said Thomas Koshy, vice president for marketing at CougarLife, a Toronto-based site that says it has a half-million members, men and women. via NYTimes
Google executives admit they have no problem with sugar-daddy websites or older men/younger women websites. Google considers older women dating younger men as not a suitable topic for children and not family-friendly.
Note: we all know that there are truly adult websites out there, carrying the word cougar. But Google has determined that the the CougarLife.com website — which is not adult at all — will be banned from Adsense.
