Google AdWords/AdSense To Ban Cryptocurrency Related Ads

In June 2018, Google will update the Financial services policy to restrict the advertisement of Contracts for Difference, rolling spot forex, and financial spread betting. In addition, ads for the following will no longer be allowed to serve - Binary options and synonymous products, cryptocurrencies and related content (including but not limited to initial coin offerings, cryptocurrency exchanges, cryptocurrency wallets, and cryptocurrency trading advice)

Now, this update doesn't come as a surprise to me, and in fact, I was already waiting for it to happen sooner or later after Facebook announced to block all cryptocurrency related ads.

As a blogger covering crypto related stuff this new update will affect my blog directly, the thing I'm afraid of - the lost organic search traffic for crypto-related content.

To be on the safe side, starting today I have decided to limit future articles about crypto investments featured on the blog.
