    A good and commendable move by the biggies, I must say that
    first! Yes, Trustinads.org will pave way towards making masses more educated
    about the dark side and scammy nature of some bad ads.

    In fact, I too have been guilty of providing such adware
    infected ads through some blogs of mine in the past. I served ads of a bad ad provider
    and it resulted in the download of adwares, whenever someone clicked on the
    ads.

    Soon, Google made me aware of this issue through webmaster
    tools and asked me to take corrective measures. Since then, I have been real
    careful while serving ads.

    But that it just my case. Bad ads are still being served on
    many other blogs. People also fall prey to them many times!

    Hope that this new initiative will force the authorities to
    chart some new, innovative laws regarding the issue too!

    I found the link to this article on Kingged.

    This is something which needs to be addressed more seriously and something which requires more resources. Understanding that main culprits being in the Third party Tech Support industry, how do the search giants know which ones are legitimate and which ones aren’t ?

    Also what criteria are they using in identifying the culprits? There is defintely a huge demand for such third party services which is not being fulfilled. What is the solution to this ?

    We started our company fixpcerror.us on this premise only but were not welcomed in the online advertising network, even after educating people of the risks through our website and being actively involved with such organizations. What could be the criteria in separating the bad apples from the good ones ?
