According to the advertising report that was released by Google for the previous year, 3,4 billion ads were taken down from its websites, with a further 5,7 billion ads restricted and 5,6 million advertiser accounts suspended.

Within the report, the company stresses that it places the security of the people on its platform above all else, standing on the over-30 changes in policies for advertisers and publishers that it made during the course of the previous year.

On a clear data basis, Google has taken down over eight million ads which are associated to the Ukrainian war.

Google also supported local governments and other organisations by investing over $250 million in campaigns for public vaccination announcements. Additionally, the report states that last year they launched a new policy in regards to the verification of information about Climate Change.

The report also outlines the moves that Google plans to take moving forward, with the launch of the “About This Ad” feature being first on their agenda. This new option will allow users to better understand why they’re seeing an ad and who’s behind it.
