Google Removed 3.2 Billion Malicious Ads In 2017

Last year, Google removed more than 3.2 billion malicious ads because they tried to infect Internet users with malware, went to phishing sites, committed advertising fraud, or for other reasons - more than 100 ads removed per second.

For example, 79 million advertisements were removed because they sent internet users to websites with malware. Google removed another 48 million ads because they let users install unwanted software. Furthermore, 66 million "trick-to-click" ads were removed. In addition to advertising, 320,000 of the advertising network were also banned and Google decided to blacklist 90,000 websites and 700,000 mobile apps.
