Google has been cracking down on inc ads on its search results in the past few weeks, but this isn’t the first time the search giant has tried to stamp out ads that target individuals.
According to Bloomberg, Google has also tried to curb ads that are targeted at people in specific geographic areas.
Bloomberg also claims that Google has started to restrict the amount of ads that appear on Google+ in order to reduce ad impressions.
In an effort to crack down on these ads, Google recently began to roll out an algorithm that will limit the number of ads shown on Google search results.
While the company hasn’t released a complete list of the ads that will no longer be shown, the company has said that “more than 90 percent of all ads” that appear in Google’s search results will be removed.
However, Google’s move comes after several major tech companies including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn have all begun to crackdown on inc targeted ads.
While it’s hard to predict exactly how many ads Google will remove in the near future, it seems that the search engine is moving in the right direction.
Google’s move to roll back ads on Google+, which was announced earlier this week, has been met with a mixed response from tech leaders, who said that the move is a step in the wrong direction.
“I think the move to remove ads from Google+ is a good one, but I don’t think it will make a dent in inc ads,” said Brian Chesky, CEO of Chesky Consulting.
“It won’t stop them, but it will have an impact on them.”
While the company doesn’t yet know how many people will see the ads they’ve removed, the move has also caused many tech companies to come out against Google’s plan to ban inc targeted advertising.
“This is just one more example of the way Google treats its users,” tweeted Twitter’s Chief Strategy Officer Mike Sievert.
“We’re going to fight this in court.”
Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter have all come out in support of Google’s moves to limit inc targeted ad content.
“While we respect Google’s decision to move to a new algorithm to address inc targeted targeting, we are concerned that removing ads from our Google+ community may encourage inc targeted behavior and abuse,” Microsoft said in a statement.
“The ability to directly control the content that is shown on search results and Facebook is critical for the continued growth of our user base.
We will continue to work with Google to help them ensure this is the right thing for both Google and their users.”
Microsoft has already removed over 50 million ads from its search result pages, but with this move, Google will now have to remove the ads for users in every single geographic area.
The company says that it will take a few days to fully remove the adverts from its results, but will continue doing so until the ads are removed.
The company says it will also continue to remove these ads from other services like Google+, Google+ Hangouts, and Google+ Messenger, in order “to ensure that we can continue to deliver great products and services to our users across the world.”
Google has also released a statement, which reads in part, “We’ve removed more than 90% of inc targeted content from our search result content since we rolled out our search algorithm in April 2018.
We continue to have some concerns about inc targeted search results that have a lot of overlap with ads, so we’ll continue to be looking for ways to reduce them in the future.”
