The Googles Can’t Help It

Got another letter from Google today. To their credit, they're only removing one of my ads currently running on the system. The reason, they say, is Click Bait, which is pretty hysterical coming from, you know, Google. Naturally, the email Google sent came from a notification-only email address that does not accept replies. So I [...]

Let the Record Show

On Sat, Feb 27, Google Ads graciously allowed B.R. Cards back onto the platform so that we could advertise to our market, the good readers of relatively small left-wing blog sites. On top of allowing Sole Member to generate income again, how cool is it that we as a nation made it through the latest [...]

Sole Member vs Goliath

The following is the official reason why Google banned the B.R. Cards ad campaign from the Google Ads platform. It took a few clicks to get to the link, but here's what the company explained to yours truly: Ads that potentially profit from or exploit a sensitive event with significant social, cultural, or political impact, [...]

Google’s Back At It

Those motherfucking cocksuckers, as my maternal grandfather might have said. Once again, the smartest people on the Internet, the one corporation that makes it all happen, have decided that this company must not be able to advertise on political blogs for fear of bringing the dread of politics onto an ad medium service. Never mind [...]

Update: Yes, We Are Now On Google Ads

There has been a lot of new traffic on the site recently, which means many new potential customers, and a few new readers. So it should be noted that Google has now allowed us to run our ads on the platform. Just as the trillion dollar global corporation arbitrarily decided on Oct 25 that the [...]

Talking Turkey

Thanks to Google being a bunch of cockblocking assholes, sales haven't been as brisk as I had imagined they would have been. But sales have been consistent, and the feedback has been strictly positive. And despite our inability to advertise to the mass public, today the company received its first ever hate mail. It appears [...]

Reddit, Home of the Raging Hormonal Foaming at the Mouth Anti-Semite, Says Google Has a Point

What do I know about Reddit? Arguably, not much. I've used it to watch streams of ballgames that were otherwise blacked out in my broadcast region. I also know that they hid behind 1st Amendment rights when allowing folks to post pro-Nazi hysteria. They got filthy rich doing that for a decade. Reddit says that [...]

The Most Dangerous Cards in America

These are the ads Google won't post, because these ads will blow your minds and make you riot in the streets. First, the current ad campaign on Mother Jones: That, along with the following image ads, have been rejected by the Googs: (Notice the back of the cards, because politics and stuff.) We've got some [...]

Googles Has Gone Ga-Ga

It's been 10 days since Google first rejected the B.R. Cards ad campaign, and they're still at it. Up and at it early this morning, I read their latest rejection letter, which was exactly like their first. My ad had been disapproved for Election Advertising in the United States. They want a certificate which states [...]

Google Ads Hates Us

To go along with our Mother Jones mobile device ad, we've been trying to get a Google Ads account up and running so that folks who visit left-wing blog sites can stumble across our wares. Unfortunately for us, B.R. Cards appears to have scared the trillion dollar Alphabet Corp. According to Webmaster Mike, the only [...]
