Bitcoin - don't get me started. So many of the ads on my site were for Bitcoin. Anything advertised on the Internet is a raw deal. Bitcoin is heavily advertised on the Internet (or companies wanting to "train" you on how to use it, or whatever). Do the math - it's all a scam!

This is not to say that ads won't appear with my content - that is another bugaboo about this whole thing. You see, others simply copy my content and then throw up shitblogs with my postings. Trying to get these taken down is like playing whack-a-mole, as for each blogsite taken down, ten more pop up. And Google doesn't give a shit, as they get a cut of the ad revenue for each of those sites.
And taking down copycat sites is an arduous process. Google requires you send them the URL for every single blog posting, which means having to cut and past over 3000 URLs, if you want the whole copycat site taken down. I suppose if I was making serious coin on this blog, that might be worthwhile. But then again, it would be a full-time job, and I would have to hire someone to do this - and that is what the big-money bloggers do, too.
They have whole staffs of editors and researchers and "copy writers". One reader suggested I hire an "editor" to review my postings. At $149 a month, I can see that is a distinct possibility! I just write stuff that comes into my head. I am not interested in being the next Sooze Orman or Mr. Money Beard or whatever.
Besides, that sort of shit has already been done. And I'm retired. Not fake-retired, real-retired. Shuffleboard and all!
UPDATE: When I try to remove ads from my site, the following message appears:
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to process your request at this time. Our engineers have been notified of this problem and will work to resolve it.
When I use the "layout" page to remove AdSense "gadgets" the gadgets do not appear on the layout (but do appear on the "preview") so I can't remove them there, either!
Google AdSense is very, very tricky - and sticky!
UPDATE: Removing Google AdSense "gadgets" isn't intuitive. They do not appear on the layout screen as Google's Help page suggests. However, if you click on "view blog" the ads appear with a little toolbox logo next to them. Click on the logo and then scroll down to "remove" the gadget. Google's adsense "help" pages are all woefully out of date. The page that comes up with the Number 1 hit on "how do I remove ads" gives advice that is flat-out wrong and instead leads you to a page to ADD MORE ADS!
I also cancelled my AdSense account. The fact that it was so fucking hard to remove AdSense (it is like a virus!) just confirmed in my mind that I needed to remove it. I can say "fucking" now, too, without harsh words from Google.
You watch, now, they will simply close down my blog. That's how the system works!
Never fear, though, some Indian copycat site will keep my stolen content alive..... :(
P.S. - sidebar and banner ads are just fucking annoying, don't you agree? Mom's hate them! Click here for this one simple trick!
