Google Reportedly Employs Over a Thousand People to Fight “Bad” Ads

Liam Tung, ZDNet:

Google says last year it eliminated 780 million “plain bad” ads carrying malware, promoting fake goods or leading to phishing sites. […]

To prevent bad ads from harming internet users and threatening Google’s multi-billion dollar ad empire, Google ads and commerce SVP Sridhar Ramaswamy says the company has now hired more than 1,000 people across the globe whose sole purpose is “fighting bad ads”.

In their latest count, Alphabet has around 60,000 employees.
