Google starts Chrome 71, which filters off abusive sites

Google Chrome 71 uses the "Abusive Sites Filtering" feature to remove all ads from "Permanent Abuse" sites.

"These methods include mostly misleading ads that urge users to click, pretend to be system alerts or shutdown buttons. Other common methods for these sites, which Google intends to be eliminated with Chrome 71, contain navigation bar, buttons, links, or non-clickable sites users to ads without their knowledge and can be a real blow. They can also use misleading ads and different page elements to steal users' personal data, including by making them sense, says the Eset blog.

In fact, Google has also compiled a comprehensive list of behaviors that are classified as addictive.

According to the quoted source, Google announced in November 2017 a set of safeguards to block popup windows and requests for new windows from known sites for users' unpleasant experiences as site redirects, implemented two months later.

"Webmasters can use the Google Abusive Experiences tool to check if their site contains such ads. If it turns out they will have a 30-day grace period to review the content of the page," I write from Eset.

Chrome is an open source browser developed by Google. The first version of Microsoft Windows operating system was displayed on September 2, 2008 in 43 languages, Agerpres reports.

A statistics report released in the spring of Google shows that in 2017, the company has eliminated over 100 loyal or offensive ads per second, equivalent to more than 3.2 billion items that have violated the US giant's advertising policy.

At the same time, 79 million ads were blocked on Google's network as they attempted to send people to contagious infected sites, or 400,000 such sites. In addition, 66 million "trick-to-click" ads have been removed, usually misleading ads, many of those using "click here" call in the message, and 48 million ads that prompted the user to install unwanted software.

Last year, Google removed 320,000 publishers for its policy violations from its own ad network, leaving 90,000 sites and 700,000 mobile apps on the blacklist.

On the other hand, the company has developed new technology to suppress Google ads on individual pages, which has eliminated ads from more than two million URLs each month for policy and policy violations.

By 2017, Google has blocked more than 12,000 content copied and downloadable sites, rising from 10,000 pages in 2016. In addition, over 7,000 AdWords accounts have been discontinued because they used camouflage behind tabloid titles, from 1400 a year ago.

Google was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Over the years, the American giant has grown to over 50,000 employees worldwide and offers a wide range of popular products and platforms like Search, Maps, Ads, Gmail, Android, Chrome, and YouTube. In October 2015, Alfabet became Google's parent company.
