Google anklagas för stöld av annonspengar
Anonym före-detta anställd på Google kommer med allvarliga anklagelser:
In the first quarter of 2009 there was a “sit-down” from the AdSense division higher ups to talk about new emerging issues and the role we (the employees in the AdSense division needed to play. It was a very long meeting, and it was very detailed and intense. What it boiled down to was that Google had suffered some very serious losses in the financial department several months earlier.
They kept saying how we “needed to tighten the belts” and they didn’t want it to come from Google employees pockets. So they were going to (in their words) “carry out extreme quality control on AdSense publishers”. When one of my fellow co-workers asked what they meant by that. Their response was that AdSense itself hands out too many checks each month to publishers, and that the checks were too large and that needed to end right away.
Google har kraftfullt förnekat allt som beskrivs i det anonyma inlägget, och det finns ett och annat frågetecken runt anklagelserna mot Google.
