Google AdSense and Shanghaiist’s breasts, butts and crotches

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009


Here is the email I received on April 9:


While reviewing your account, we noticed that you are currently displaying Google ads in a manner that is not compliant with our policies. For instance, we found violations of AdSense policies on pages such as Please note that this URL is an example and that the same violations may exist on other pages of your website.

As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on pages with adult or mature content. This includes images or video content containing lewd or provocative poses, or close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches.

Please make any necessary changes to your webpages in the next 72 hours. We also suggest that you take the time to review our program policies ( to ensure that all of your other pages are in compliance.

Once you update your site, we will automatically detect the changes and ad serving will not be affected. If you choose not to make the changes to your account within the next three days, your account will remain active but you will no longer be able to display ads on the site. Please note, however, that we may disable your account if further violations are found in the future.

Thank you for your cooperation.


The Google AdSense Team

Here is my reply, also dated April 9:

Dear Google AdSense Team,

The site in question — — is a News website, not a porn website. We focus on news and events in Shanghai, China. Google News indexes Shanghaiist as a qualified News source. Because our readership is predominantly grown-ups, we occasionally (rarely) do report on some news or events that could vaguely be considered “adult.” The link in question is coverage of an adult products convention in Shanghai.

I don’t think it makes sense to remove this content, which seems valid to our readership, from our site. And our site architecture does not allow us to remove ad codes from a specific URL. Is it possible for me, within Google Adsense, to “blacklist” certain Shanghaiist URLs that don’t meet your content policies? I’d be happy to remove AdSense ads from specific pages on our site in that manner.

Again, we are a valid News website and 99.9% of our content complies with AdSense policies. Hopefully there is a way we can solve this issue that doesn’t involve shutting off AdSense completely or Google dictating our editorial content.

Managing Editor

I did not receive a reply, nor did I expect one. And no, I don’t really think Shangahaiist’s readers need Sexpo photos, but that is not really the point. Honestly, I’d have to think Shanghaiist, at some point in the past four years, has featured images far more risque than the ones found at the link above. I vaguely remember something about someone named Edison something or other.

Anyway, sometime during the wee hours of April 14, Google ads on Shanghaiist went blank. I had a backup plan in place for that, but I didn’t expect the site’s search function to go down along with the ads. That’s unfortunate and I am trying to figure out what to do about that (our techies in New York are currently sleeping).

This is all quite silly, and the timing couldn’t have been worse — I just figured out how to ban Google from posting ads for brothels on Shanghaiist.

Typealyzer: What type is my blog?

Friday, November 21st, 2008

This is how Typealyzer analyzed the author of the blog you are reading:

The Performers

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

And my old blog Shanghai Diaries:

The Doers

The active and play-ful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

Shanghaiist was also a “doer.” And, of course, I totally believe all this.

“The dangers of dating Shanghainese girls”

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

Email from a Shanghaiist reader:

I’m an American and had been involved in a serious relationship with a Shanghainese girl for about 4 years, and after suffering true misery over the past several months I finally decided to break up with her.

I’ve heard numerous horror stories from my own friends and read on different message boards about foreigners being involved in similar relationships and unmistakably, they all happen to be with Shanghainese girls.

I think it would be of great service to us Expats living in Shanghai, in particular single guys who may be looking to getting into a serious relationship with Chinese girls, and perhaps the dangers of dating Shanghainese girls.

Please let me know if I could be of any help.
