    Angry Google Officially Bans Muscle - Enhancing Supplements

    Google Officially Bans Muscle-Enhancing Supplements.

    Google has officially classified :

    Glutamine
    CellMass
    DHEA
    Nitric Oxide

    and any muscle-enhancing stack as Anabolic Steroids and has completely banned them from being advertised on Google Adwords. If you’re into athletics or training of any type you must pass this around.

    http://adwords.google.com/supp​ort/a...203;wer=176031

    It has already happened and the restrictions get worse each day, like Nitric Oxide supplements are not listed on the ban but have been officially banned. See, for yourself, search for glutamine and where once dozens of advertisers showed up, now there are none. Google claims they don’t want to restrict freedom of speech rights so they are still allowing it on regular search - for now.
    Please post this on your Bodyspace and pass it on to as many people as you can. Banning products like glutamine is absurd. Glutamine and CellMass are now on the same list as Dianabol and Clenbuterol. Where is the logic? Please note, this is not the future, the ban is on. So far the ban is not on shopping results or generic search only on Adwords, the ads that show up on top and left border. But this is how it starts.

    I was just informed that L-arginine (please note that this product is now monitored under anabolic policy): by Google.

    They've always restricted the language that can be used in AdWords. No surprise here. Yahoo does it too

    It amzaes me that they will say glutamine falls under anabolic steroid when hospitals give glutamine injections for surgery patients.

    The Google ban on bodybuilding supplements is 100% real. I see the skepticism in some of your remarks and can’t blame you. Its sounds too outrageous to be true, but it is. There is no plausible explanation, but the unmistaken truth is that Google has begun its attack on our supplements. Under its Anabolic Steroid Policy, Google has now included, “L-Glutamine”, “CellMass”, “muscle enhancing stacks” and “any bodybuilding supplement that has a similar effect to steroids” in its list of banned steroids. Glutamine is now listed as an anabolic steroid right next to Dianabol and Clenbuterol.

    Here is the link to Google’s official policy right off their site: http://adwords.google.com/support/aw...er=176031&rd=2

    I have spent months researching this and if you give me just a few moments, I will go through it detail and prove it to you. I’ll show what’s banned now and what’s going to be banned in the near future. Believe me, this is scary and not something any of us should dismiss lightly.
    First, let me explain what the ban is. It’s listed on Google’s policy page as “Anabolic Steroid Policy” The ban so far only applies to Google paid advertising, known as Google Adwords or pay-per-click. Those are the sponsored ads that show up on the right border of the Google search page, and a few that sometimes show up on the top of the page. The ban is not yet on Google Shopping Results or organic (SEO) searches.

    Try this test and see for yourself. Search the term “ribose”. You will see the right side of the page filled with ribose ads. You will also see a row of ribose images on the top which is the shopping results. Now try the same search for “glutamine” or “CellMass”. You will see that the right border has absolutely no ads showing. Only the shopping results are shown. This is because Google has banned these 2 products from all paid advertising. (You might see 1 ad that slipped through, but it will be pulled within 24 hours).

    Now that you’ve done the research you have seen that this ban is real. But why care, it’s only a couple of products and it’s only on paid search? Because Google has already started to expand the list of banned products and now it includes nitric oxide and arginine. Although they are just staring to police these 2 products, you will see them disappear within the next few months. On Google’s forum they define anabolic steroids as follows “products that can facilitate increased muscle mass growth, and gains in muscular strength.” Here is the link to the forum on Google: http://www.google.com/support/forum/...e2a09918&hl=en

    Are you starting to get scared yet? Google plans on banning more products each month based on this definition. If Google is banning our supplements from Adwords, than expanding that ban to Shopping Results and eventually organic search (SEO) is a forgone conclusion.
