I report a tremendous amount of clickfraud and splogs to Google in various manners (email and clicking on Ads by Google, filling out the form). In early September, I noticed that Google was terminating Blogspot and AdSense accounts that I was reporting. This has stopped. Obvious clickfraud and splog accounts are no longer being terminated by Google. Splogging accounts I reported more than a month ago remain active (both AdSense and Blogspot). Accounts where the blogger actively encouraged clickfraud remain active (AdSense). This is very disturbing. I've backed Google in the past, because I did see some accounts being terminated, but of late, that has stopped being true. Don't be evil? Google's failure to address splogs is verging on evil.
Unless things change in the next week, I will begin publishing the splogs that I've uncovered, reported to Google and remain active.
Update: An an employee of Google has contacted and I sent him the relevant communications (the list of splogs). I hope there's action.
