No adult or copyrighted materials with Adsense

Nobody really has time and patience to read those small prints, i.e. terms and conditions stuffs. Although the font size of Google Adsense policy electronic version are no smaller than those in other web pages, and you can change its size in any browser.

Neither did I have time and patience to read, but as long as you have common sense, you should be aware, at least should ask if adult or copyrighted materials are permitted to use with Adsense.

Today one guy wrote in a forum, asking for help that he received an email from Google Adsense, warning him that his website violet Adsense policy:

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 http://www.samplesite.com/adultcontents.

As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on pages with adult or mature content.

As a result, we have disabled ad serving to the site.

Even though Google kept his adsense account active, let him review the program policies(https://www.google.com/adsense/policies ) to ensure that all of his remaining pages are in compliance. And warned him that if if further violations are found in the future his account will be disable.

The guy "read" the policies, and deleted adult contents in his website, and wrote to Google, then he received another email from Adsense team:


Thanks for your email. However, please be aware that because your site was
found to be in violation of our program policies, it is no longer eligible
for participation in the AdSense program. Sections such as
http://www.samplesites.com/music/mp3-download/
violate our policy regarding copyrighted materials.

As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to
place Google ads on sites involved in the distribution of copyrighted
materials.

As we can see when he was warned the first time, he actually didn't review the policies, and never be aware he had both adult and copyrighted materials in his site.

Virgin Media Netgear Wireless Router Username and Password

As Virgin Media customer, if you find your wireless router is Netgear, then you may type the router's setup URL into a web browser address bar. http://192.168.0.1 is the default Netgear router IP address. http://192.168.1.1 will work for some Netgear models. Mine setup URL is http://192.168.1.1 . Then you are required to enter a username and password. If you haven't change the default setting, it is "virgin" and "password", you may find that on a label stuck on the router. This default username and password of Virgin Wireless router is different from that of the normal Netgear router. The default username of Netgear is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Then you open the configure interface, change the settings, such as change your DNS server to OpenDNS . For a normal Netgear router, if you forget the username and password, you can reset and restore the NETGEAR device to factory default settings. But I couldn't find any button on

URL cannot contain a Google host

Google just opened up Knol to the public. Knol is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site. Authors on Knol can enter their AdSense data into Knol, and will get the regular AdSense payout for every click on an ad. This seems like a smart way to reward users who write the best (or most popular) content, while still making money for Google, because the cut Google already takes from the advertising through AdSense anyway. Currently, I don't know how may we track ads performance on knol, I tried to add an URL channel, and got error message: "http://knol.google.com/k/-/k3-searching-tv-programs-using-teletext/2p3t2lhf3x6sj/6#" at line 1 invalid: URL cannot contain a Google host. Has anybody any idea of how to do it?
