    About a month ago, we ran a poll asking should Google censor non-adult search suggestions? This was based on all the religion based controversy and political controversy. So I specifically asked our readers, should Google censor these search suggestions or not. We received 113 responses, where about 75% said, no, Google should not censor these results. 23% said they should and the rest said "other." Here is the break down of the few other responses:

    Since the devastating disaster in Haiti, companies and individuals are looking for creative ways to help.

  • Google AdSense Publishers Upset Over Recent Earnings
    Since late January and early February, I have been seeing sporadic complaints about Google AdSense earnings and how they have plummeted for many publishers.
