There was irony in The Guardian's having to pull the ads, given that attracting more paid subscribers is a way for it to mitigate the fact that many companies do not need to pay to directly advertise on its news site, Hamish Nicklin, the chief revenue officer of Guardian News & Media, said.
Google is implementing a new system that lets external partners verify ad quality standards on YouTube while simultaneously expanding its definitions of offensive content.
For end users like us, we see YouTube as a video platform, but for Google, it is a means to generate advertising revenue, like most of their portfolio of companies. "We have limited resources".

Several news outlets including the Wall Street Journal and the United Kingdom times have published reports and evidence of ads appearing on anti-somatic and racist videos over the past few weeks.
The fallout has dealt a major blow to Google and led to a number of big companies pulling their advertising from the video-streaming platform. According to Schindler, brand safety had "always been a small problem" but "over the last few weeks, someone has chose to put a bit more of a spotlight on the problem".
Brands using YouTube and other Google products have the ability to target certain demographics very precisely, but can not control on which videos and websites their brand appears - as that is decided by an algorithm. "We can make it an even smaller, smaller, smaller problem". British Government suspended its ads after they were featured on videos from Klux Klan leader David Duke. This solution will enhance brand safety in both reservation media, including Google Preferred, and in auction-based inventory bought through AdWords or DoubleClick Bid Manager. Content that promotes negative stereotypes of certain groups through inappropriate jokes and insults and content that denies sensitive historical events such as the Holocaust, will also be included.
"It is natural for users to read up on "exciting news" on various websites out of personal curiosity rather than an endorsement of the content of the sites visited". Schindler said he has devoted more manpower to oversee brand safety issues, but stressed that only machine intelligence could contend with YouTube's size. Roth says some of IPG's clients are starting to return to Google, as it pulls out all the stops to show brands it's working to solve the problem. It's also likely to share best practices with advertisers akin to what it's done with SEO algorithms: "We'll give you best practices on things that will affect your search rankings-this will be the same thing-but no secret sauce will be shared", Ryan said.
