City A.M.: Google removes 2.7bn bad ads as it launches Covid-19 taskforce

City A.M.: Google removes 2.7bn bad ads as it launches Covid-19 taskforce. “Google removed roughly 2.7bn so-called bad ads last year as the tech giant ramps up its efforts to block misleading and malicious campaigns actors on its platform. The search engine’s crackdown, which equates to 5,000 ads per minute, is an increase on the 2.3bn adverts removed in 2018.”
