Google 真的?作?么?我看未必,至少在adsense广告上?是。自从去年11月第一次把google adsense广告放到我的blog以?,直到今年4月,我的adsense广告收入?第一次?破100美圆,第一次“?以?收到google的支付,但 是4月12?的时候,我?然?现adsense??里??示付款被?留,在写信给google询问?得知:

我们目?正在审核您?户信?的准确性。在此期间我们将?留您的款项?过您还是?以正常进入您的?户,也?以继续显示广告并累积收益。我们预期?以在下次付款周期?完?审核并会为您??供您款项的最新信?。

于是我放下心??心等待google在下个月付款。没想到的是,25?的时候,我?收到了一?google的?信:

您好?

我们已?注?到您的网页上的广告产生了无效点击。因此,我们?用了您的Google AdSense ?户。请您?解,我们采?这一步骤是为了尽力?护 AdWords 广告客户的利益。

?布商?得在网站上对任一广告进行无效点击,这包括但??于由?布商在自己的网页上产生的点击,使用漫游器?自动点击工具或任何其他欺诈性软件产生的点击。

这些?法都有? Google AdSense 的?款和计划政策,?以在以下网?查看这两者:

Google ?组敬上

我马上给google写信询问具体原因,但是google的回信确是:

您好

?常感?您的來信。

我们认为?用您的?户是确?贵网站???生无效点击的必?措施。

我 们?解您希望获得有关我们所调查的无效点击的具体信?。由于我们监控系统的专有性,我们?能?露这些点击的任何具体细节。但是,我们愿??次?您??, 收到您的回信?,我们?新彻底审核了您的?户数?,并?次确认贵网站的广告确实存在无效点击问题。根?我们对此问题的政策,我们?用了您的?户,以维护广 告客户的利益。

按照我们计划?款的规定,Google ?留?时?消任一?布商的?与资格的?利。

Google AdSense ?组敬上

?次写信之?,google拒?答?,至今未?回信。

这 就是整个事件的始末,让我感到?解的是,“??明?的googl凭什么认为自己既能当?动员?能当?判???任何解释而“?留?时?消任一?布商的?与 资格的?利?难??是霸王?款?google凭什么剥夺用户的知情??是?没有填写美国纳税?的?户??能去美国对google??起诉讼就能?便?掉?? 掉的?户里的钱难?都退回给adwords客户了?

在此希望国内?google adsense的朋?慎?一点。

很明显,Google?断地在?集?个人的信?,?拒?告诉我们为什么这样干。这对我们?说早就?是什么新鲜事了。在Google?能控制?索结果页是什么样?的时候,他们?能控制?在什么时候看什么内容。
我们在页?上?行Google广告是为了生存。但这就?味?我们?应该把下?的信?与你分享??如果你知?别的方法?以给我们网站支?,请和我?系。

如果你察看包?Google Adsense的网页,Google就会追踪你的??。但请注?,Google追踪你??的办法?止于此。

1,?死的cookie:
在 ?家?索引擎中,Google第一个使用到2038年?过期的cookie。那个时候网站还被?止使用永久有效的cookie。现在,?家?索引 擎?务??供商都使用永久有效的cookie。因为没有人对这一点有异议,因此Google的行为为整个行业设定了标准。Google的cookie在你的 硬盘上放置一个唯一的标识数。?管什么时候,??你打开Google的网页,如果你的硬盘上没有Google的cookie,Google就会给你放一 个。如果你有了,Google就会读?你的标识数并?记录。

2,Google记录一切他们能记录的东西

你??一次?索,Google就会记录cookie的标识数和递交?索的IP地?,时间日期,?索关键?和?览器?置。Google越?越?能??供基于你IP地?优化的?索结果,因为IP地?分?和物??置是有关系的。3,Google永久?存他们记录的数?

Google内部没有数??留多久的规定。有??表明Google能够很方便地接触到?集和?存的全部用户信?。

4,Google?解释为什么他们需?这些数?

?Google?出??政策的查询总是得?到回应。当纽约时报询问Sergey Brin(Google创始人之一和总?)Google有没有因为??政策信?而?到法庭传唤时,他?予置评(2002-11-28)。

5,Google雇佣间?

Matt Cutts,一???的工程师,曾?为National Security Agency(译者按:我?清楚这个组织是干什么的)工作。Google希望能够雇佣更多的人?对?集到的数?进行调查,这样他们就能??盛顿的间?们组织??值钱的信?。

6,Google 工具?是间?软件

如 果你?许使用高级选项,那 么你看的?一个网页都会被工具?记录并且传?到Google?务器。安装工具?时候的??策略已?承认了这一点,?过那仅仅是因为?能的起诉。Alexa 的工具?干了?样的事情?没有在??策略中声明,从而输掉了一桩官?。更糟的是,Google工具??会在?级之?询问你的??,它总是?悄悄的就完?了 ?级。这?味?,一旦你安装了Google工具?,?一次你连接到Google网页(一天里有很多次?),Google就对你的硬盘有完全的访问??。大 多数软件供应商,甚至微软都会询问你是?需??级。Google?是这样。任何自动?级的软件?味?大?潜在的安全?患。

7,Google的网页快照是?法的

? ?第?巡回法庭将美 国版?法应用于互?网的判例判断,Google的网页快照似乎??法。唯一??网站被Google?存快照的办法就是在?一个页?里?加上 noarchive元标记。?览者喜欢网页快照,但是网站管?员们?喜欢。很多网站站长已?删除了网站上有问题的内容,??现这些内容?然存活于网页快 照。网页快照应该是?以选择加入或?加入,而?是现在这样,?能选择退出或?退出。

8,Google?是你的朋?

到目?为 止,?大多数网站访问?的 75%都?自于Google。如果网站站长?增加??,他们得先问问Google????。如果站长们想利用Google??密?公开的算法中的?些?洞 ?得利,他们很快就会被Google惩罚,??完全没有了。Google没有?布详细公开的惩治?程。对被处罚的网站?说,也找?到任何上诉的途径。 Google的行为根本是无法预计的。大多时候Google甚至都?回?网站站长的信件。

9,Google是??定时炸弹
Google?天承担2亿次的?索,其中大多数?自美国以外。由此??,Google已?积累了足?以引?一场???难的数?。?盛顿那些新上任的负责数?挖掘的官僚?梦都想的高效率早就被Google实现了。

Google are clearly gathering information about us but refuse to tell us why. It’s nothing new to us, but while they cannot control normal SERPs, they do however control who is viewing what and when.

We run Google adverts in order to survive. Does this mean we shouldn’t share the information below? If you know an alternative way to sustain costs please get in touch.

Please note, Google does not track you by simply viewing pages containing their adverts.

1. Google’s immortal cookie:
Google was the first search engine to use a cookie that expires in 2038. This was at a time when federal websites were prohibited from using persistent cookies altogether. Now it’s years later, and immortal cookies are commonplace among search engines ; Google set the standard because no one bothered to challenge them. This cookie places a unique ID number on your hard disk. Anytime you land on a Google page, you get a Google cookie if you don’t already have one. If you have one, they read and record your unique ID number.

2. Google records everything they can:
For all searches they record the cookie ID, your Internet IP address, the time and date, your search terms, and your browser configuration. Increasingly, Google is customizing results based on your IP number. This is referred to in the industry as “IP delivery based on geolocation.”

3. Google retains all data indefinitely:
Google has no data retention policies. There is evidence that they are able to easily access all the user information they collect and save.

4. Google won’t say why they need this data:
Inquiries to Google about their privacy policies are ignored. When the New York Times (2002-11-28) asked Sergey Brin about whether Google ever gets subpoenaed for this information, he had no comment.

5. Google hires spooks:
Matt Cutts, a key Google engineer, used to work for the National Security Agency. Google wants to hire more people with security clearances, so that they can peddle their corporate assets to the spooks in Washington.

6. Google’s toolbar is spyware:
With the advanced features enabled, Google’s free toolbar for Explorer phones home with every page you surf, and yes, it reads your cookie too. Their privacy policy confesses this, but that’s only because Alexa lost a class-action lawsuit when their toolbar did the same thing, and their privacy policy failed to explain this. Worse yet, Google’s toolbar updates to new versions quietly, and without asking. This means that if you have the toolbar installed, Google essentially has complete access to your hard disk every time you connect to Google (which is many times a day). Most software vendors, and even Microsoft, ask if you’d like an updated version. But not Google. Any software that updates automatically presents a massive security risk.

7. Google’s cache copy is illegal:
Judging from Ninth Circuit precedent on the application of U.S. copyright laws to the Internet, Google’s cache copy appears to be illegal. The only way a webmaster can avoid having his site cached on Google is to put a “noarchive” meta in the header of every page on his site. Surfers like the cache, but webmasters don’t. Many webmasters have deleted questionable material from their sites, only to discover later that the problem pages live merrily on in Google’s cache. The cache copy should be “opt-in” for webmasters, not “opt-out.”

8. Google is not your friend:
By now Google enjoys a 75 percent monopoly for all external referrals to most websites. Webmasters cannot avoid seeking Google’s approval these days, assuming they want to increase traffic to their site. If they try to take advantage of some of the known weaknesses in Google’s semi-secret algorithms, they may find themselves penalized by Google, and their traffic disappears. There are no detailed, published standards issued by Google, and there is no appeal process for penalized sites. Google is completely unaccountable. Most of the time Google doesn’t even answer email from webmasters.

9. Google is a privacy time bomb:
With 200 million searches per day, most from outside the U.S., Google amounts to a privacy disaster waiting to happen. Those newly-commissioned data-mining bureaucrats in Washington can only dream about the sort of slick efficiency that Google has already achieved.
