Re: Google teaming with . . . HA!
It's all very depressing.  I miss the days when the very worst thing that could happen to you with ads was winding up in pop-up hell.

Actually, you know what I really miss?  Pre-WWW, when it was all dialup BBSes and Usenet.

Re: Google teaming with . . . HA!
Indeed. I agree with you and I think this principle applies in any fild of interest. But is true that online world requires standards through security.

Re: Google teaming with . . . HA!
Thanks for the feedback. I'm all for increasing the effectiveness of ad spending, but whether Google benefits from rebuilding confidence in the advertising industry or not, isn't much of a concern.

Parties aspiring to set global ad standards need to have their eye on the future -- ad security is what consumers may not yet, but will soon, perceive as vital to their interests.

With the advertising industry trying to come up with ways to deal with rocketing ad blocking adoption rates, there might be some misguided optimism. The Coalition for Better Ads, which Google is a part of, aims to improve ad experiences for consumers through developing data-driven ad standards. How does their attempt at improving ad quality go beyond the daily duties of regular marketers besides the global scale?

Consumers being repulsed by a brand's ad vs consumers faced with ransomware from a brand's ad

Do we now see who should be concerned about website security?

Cheers,

Google teaming with . . . HA!
Thanks for a very helpful and well written article. I agree with your premise that standards are needed, and that when we are being overrun by the enemy, there needs to be a more direct action, certainly one more fruitful than "Google posturing maneuvers" to avoid appearing to do anything that would negatively affect their ad revenue. And, honesty, the notion that Google is helping anyone do anything other than increasing ad revenue is very hard to take seriously.
