Google powerhouse has no heart
Google is unfair!
I am a blog writer and I have a son who means the world to me. He has been diagnosed with Epilepsy and Asperger's syndrome since he was 3 years old. My wife and I are his biggest supporters and we wish the very best for him. I also wanted to establish a way of communicating my thoughts and feelings on his medical condition and I feel a blog is a good way to express myself. I feel it is important to write and express what is happening and try to personalize our experiences so we can help our son and hopefully help others who are going through the same thing.
I have been involved with my blog now for over 2 years and I find it is very helpful to write when I feel the need to. If I kept it bottled inside it would only make me feel like I am all alone. When I reach out to an audience I don't feel alone and I feel my son would benefit by getting a glimpse into my thoughts, my dreams, my hopes and most of all my love for him and his mother.
My blog also evolved from a family tragedy that really affected me and writing was my only way to deal with it. In creating my blog I also hoped that my writing would be a source for generating some revenue to help with medical costs. We have been overwhelmed with the high costs associated with his visits to the doctors and the hospitals. Logically I thought the Google Adsense program would be a good way to enhance my blog and to also help in a very small way with these high costs. I was eager to write as I had a lot to say and I thought it would be nice to have an opportunity to experience some small financial benefit from my writings.
In participating in the Google Adsense program I had set a template up on my page based on the layout in my settings and ads would appear in my blog writings. In the initial stages of my blog I wrote about the birth of our son and the joys we experienced. I wanted to focus on positive things and I had many heartwarming stories to share. I also felt the need to write about the difficult times as that also was a part of our lives. I wrote a tribute to my dad and that was something I reflected on for a long time because he was very special and he was very important to our son, Matty. You could see the love in his heart for his grandson and Matty always had wonderful times with Pop. We drove to the Verrazano bridge on occasion where Pop worked as an ironworker many years earlier. We wanted to share the wonderful moments in his life and Matty wanted to read the stories.
Matty who was 10 years old at the time wanted to read all about Pop and he enjoyed the pictures displayed on the page and was also curious about the ads on the page so he did what most kids would do. He clicked on the links which I was not aware of originally. How would I know? As I wrote more in my blog, Matty would want to read and experience what I had to write about. He really enjoyed the idea of my writing so he started also to contribute to my blog with his own writings and he enjoyed seeing the ads magically appear on his page too.
I am not a bad guy but it seems Google Adsense thinks I am because they accuse me of doing something that I never did and how can you hold a 10 year old boy who is grieving for his grandfather accountable for something he did innocently. Google Adsense never paid us a cent yet they discontinued our account and we are unable to monetize anything that is owned by Google.
Google is a multi-billion dollar company and they are the cheapest company I have ever come in contact with. They have no heart and it seems with Google it is one strike and you are out. I do not understand why they are so cold in their decision to permanently ban me from making a few pennies on writing something that is very important to me. I would never click on the links and I have no desire too. Google Adsense does not even listen or have the decency to allow me to explain that this was all an accident with no intentional harm to Google or its advertisers. I have explained this to them in appealing and they ignore me. I am just a middle class family man trying to make an honest living and help my son. I want to do the best i can for him.
I also write on Hubpages and the thing that really gets me upset is that Google Adsense advertises all over my hubpage writings and I do not benefit in any way yet they get free advertising on my writings. Who is the culprit in this? I can not understand how a company that has so much wealth is such a penny pincher. It just mystifies me. I am not a fan because they have no heart. I believe criminals get second chances but with Google there is no second chance even if it was by accident!
I will not use Google in any of my web searches because of their unfair practices and I will only consider using Bing. I am very upset with Google and I wish they would get a taste of their own medicine.
I am sure there are many others out there burned by Google Adsense and I know there are many complaints but Google could care less. What do they have to lose? Absolutely nothing! They are way too powerful and I am just the little guy.
I feel they have banned me for no good reason and they have no conscious and no compassion. They have a problem paying out pennies when they make billions. I hope there will be other companies that will stand up and take away some of their market share and allow some of us the opportunity to monetize our writings.
Google Adsense leaves me speechless knowing their heartless practices.
Google has also censored the videos I placed on this hubpage which does not surprise me at all!
It's a free world and I am just saying the truth and writing it as it is!
